Funtober lists Iowa corn mazes in major cities like Des Moines, Sioux City, Cedar Rapids, Davenport, and more. 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. Many also have a pumpkin patch, hayrides, haunted attractions, live animals and so much more fun things to do this fall which may have different hours.
