Here are local Arizona corn mazes near Phoenix, Flagstaff and Tucson that we believe will let visitors get lost for fun. It looks like there are four cornfields within Maricopa County and the Greater Phoenix area. Two mazes are located within thirty minutes of Tucson. Flagstaff residents will have a bit farther drive. The closest is just over an hour from Flagstaff. Most are open from late September through Halloween. Some are changed into haunted attractions at night.
Visitors this fall can get lost in a daytime corn maze, the daylights scared out of you 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!
