Virginia Corn Mazes

Here is our list of Virginia corn mazes including options near Washington, DC, Charlotte, Richmond, Norfolk, Roanoke and more major cities.  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.
