Locate Indiana corn mazes here at Funtober this fall including options in Northern Indiana near Chicago and Indianapolis. 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 websites for further information, hours and prices. Most are open from the middle of September through October. Many have hayrides, pumpkins, kids activities, and live animals which may have other hours and prices.
