Minnesota Corn Mazes

Here is the list of Minnesota corn mazes, including options near Minneapolis and St. Paul. Visitors this fall can get lost in a daytime corn maze, the daylights scared out of them in haunted mazes with bloodied actors and actresses wielding weapons, as well as more difficult options such as flashlight and moonlight mazes. You’ll find options with small mazes designed for kids and large, challenging ones to keep adults occupied for a long time. And don’t forget about the other fall activities that occur on these farms including pumpkin patches, hayrides, farm animals and children’s activities. It’s one of the best parts of September and October!

Be sure to check out their website for further information, hours and prices.  Most are open in September and October. Many have pumpkins, fresh food, live animals, hayrides, and games which may have different hours or additional costs.

  1. Sun Country Farm off Hwy 36 – halfway between Mahtomedi and Oak Park Heights is amazing!! And totally affordable. Freed admission gets you a nice stroll through the farm, which includes haunted house displays, a giant spider, petting zoo and a fun themed gift shop and eating area.
    There is a giant corn pit for the kids to play in for $3 – my children enjoyed themselves for over an hour, and I had to beg them to leave. Great deal considering most play areas cost $8 per children
    Hayrides $4.50 with fun Halloween themes.
    Bounce House $3
    Corn Maze $4.50
    Face Painting $3
    They have vintage toy rides for kids for 50 cents as well.
    You can also buy pumpkins, haystacks and other decorations.

    There is alot to do.. you could spend all day here. With my kids, I just picked one favorite activity for a fee and enjoyed the free area.
