“The best maze around!”

Great Vermont Corn Maze
Ranked #1 of 5 things to do in Danville
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Largest Maze in New England. Opens August 1st. Open at 10 AM, 7 days a week, weather permitting. Recommend arriving no later than 1PM. BEST time for mazing is mid-August to mid-September when corn is at it's best. Closes mid-October, exact day varies due to how well the corn holds up. Two mazes. Big maze is a Black Diamond Maze and can take 2+ hours to hike. Scenic maze is smaller and is about a 40 min walk. Enjoyed most by adult couples and parents who enjoy adventures with their young children. 90% of teens do not enjoy mazing. Also, World's first Barnyard Golf, friendly dwarf goats and Lowline angus cows. PRETENDIN play area for young children with small western style play village, 100' underground tunnels, silo climb, HIDE-N-SEEK FOREST and hay barn. Recommend following our map from website since not all GPS are accurate in our area. Popular October Haunted event- DEAD NORTH, sells out every year. Tickets for DEAD NORTH must be purchased online and go on sale in August.

We head out to Danville to experience the maze twice a year. Once during regular maze season, and again in October during DEAD NORTH to have our pants scared off us. If you like to be spooked, get online and buy tickets for Dead North, their haunted maze - sells out every year!

OK, I was skeptical about doing this, especially on the opening weekend of the NFL season. My wife made plans for us to join another family for the afternoon. I decided to go since it seemed like a fun family activity. Was it ever!!!

This maze is huge, over 10 acres of 12 foot high corn. The path is complicated, the time spent trying to find your way around is nothing but pure fun for the entire family. This was one of the most unique activities we have done in quite some time. Well worth the money and missing football for a day!!

Besides the corn maze, there is a petting zoo, activity center, lawn golf, and a few other surprises for the kids to enjoy. There is a small gift store with snacks. Plan to spend at least ½ a day enjoying all the activities.

Outside in the front lawn there is a place to buy homemade jams from a local non-profit organization raising money for medical research. I picked up a bunch of these along with a jar of “Christmas Pickles”. I would drive back just to buy more treats from these folks. Their jams and other items are quite tasty.

For adults, later in the season there is a haunted weekend called “Dead North”. With young children we will not attend but it sounds like a great time. They also have laser tag and a few other special events that would be fun for adults.

Give up football for one Sunday and take the family. This is a unique experience that your entire family will enjoy and you will not forget.

My wife and I stopped at this corn maze as we were vacationing in Northern Vermont. We thought it was a kids activity and thought it might be some easy morning fun, boy were we wrong!. The lady at the entrance sold us tickets, $12(a little steep, but a lot of work goes into this maze) and told us to expect to be in the maze for 1 1/2-2 hours! We scoffed at the idea and barged in. The corn was towering 12ft above our heads as we chose our path. Needless to say 1 1/2 hours or more after starting we were close to the end but had to bail for lunch and other plans. It was still a fun/challenging experience and we would definitely go again. Be prepared for a lot of walking (some uphill), bring water/snacks and ask for clues if you need them!

I had no idea how lost one can get in 10 acres of 12' corn. Totally, totally disorienting. NOT an easy walk - you are going up and down (and up and down and up and down) the side of a hill. Paths are very clear and you could definitely drive a stroller through them, but I don't suggest it! My hubby has an exceptional sense of direction and we were lost for 2 hours, and had to ask for help several times. Lots of fun, but definitely a physical event. Staff are fabulous and give just the right amount of help when asked. Excellent layout of easy-out and emergency exits. Easy-out is through a maze designed especially for kids. Petting farm and a small gift shop also on site. Allow at least 15 minutes to go from Danville out to this very remote, gorgeous farm and DON'T trust your GPS - call for assistance or follow the directions on the website.
