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.

I was at once intrigued when I heard there was a "haunted corn maze" that sold out every year for the four days it was open. We signed up and anticipated this event for our last evening while in the Northeast Kingdom.
Driving through the dark on the country road prepared us for the isolated scenario that embellishes this event. Once there, we were led to an enclosed wagon and driven to a building where vintage horror shows were playing on a large screen. The anticipation is played well and by the time you actually enter the corridor to the maze you are primed to scream.
The corn is towering over your head and there are no lights on your narrow path through the stalks. You must trust your sense of hearing to discern if there is something waiting for you in the corn field, however, often, there is no warning.
Scream, I did, and wrenched my partner's arm out of the socket and screamed more. There is a sense of authenticity in this venue as you are alone on a path in nature with others spread thin along the way.
You will get your money's worth and I swear all the way back down the country road I thought I saw people coming out of the corn, trees, and any other back drop!

A couple hours spent in the fall sunshine, having a few laughs and walking the entire time. What's not to love? They run an efficient system, the maze is generally excellent every year, and it sure beats stationary entertainment!

This is our 4th trip to the maze and it never gets old. We broke up into 3 groups with a race to get out first making it even more of a challenge. Yes, it can be frustrating, but that is the fun of a corn maze and this is definitely one of the best! It took us about an hour and a half to complete being the first out and 2 hours for the last of our group, but in that time we burned off a ton of calories as we ran up and down hills through the maze. Great exercise, but for those who are not very physically fit could be a bit exhausting as this is not a flat corn field. The best part about this maze is that the paths are very narrow so you really feel lost in the corn that towers over your head.
The maze itself is down very scenic dirt roads in the middle of nowhere, which gives it even more character. The views across to the White Mountains of New Hampshire are stunning. Be sure and stop by their family run jams, jellies, and pickles stand out front. Free tastings and it is all yummy. We just learned this year that 100% of their proceeds from this stand go to research for Lou Gherig's disease.

Very excited to try the maze but it is not easy! After trying to think our way out for 3 hours, with clues even..we gave up and took the emergency exit. Wonderfully done but probably can only be solved by the lucky or the most determined.

This was biggest maze I have been in. This could be called the advanced maze. Be ready. It can be frustrating but the maze is fun. It's even a maze to get to it from the highway. Well marked signs. This is worth a few hours. If you do it in under an hour good on you. Closer to two hours is what it takes. Find the boat in the maze!! While the maze theme this year is aliens they are also to be found in the maze!! Great exercise. Nice staff. Neat animals to pet. The goats were very vocal.
