The 12 Coolest Corn Mazes in Ontario

It’s that time of the year again, the time of fall fairs, pumpkin spice lattes and really cool corn mazes. The province of Ontario in Canada seems to do corn mazes best, with the abundance of farms and markets in the rural areas. Some of the coolest corn mazes involve additional puzzles to solve throughout, special haunted night walks and “date nights” where you and your loved one can get “lost” in love. From Ottawa to London to Guelph, make sure you head to one of these 12 corn mazes this fall.

12. McMaze at Cedar Fox Farm -St. Andrews West, Ontario

Visitors come from all over Ontario to tackle the corn maze at Cedar Fox Farm, as well as to engage in the abundance of fall activities here. There are a variety of mazes here but the four acre maze is the favorite of them all. Each year features a different theme and in 2015 the maze is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 4H club. The large corn maze is 4 acres in size and full of twists, turns and dead ends. It will take participants anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to complete. Other cool mazes to explore here include the Haze Maze, a maze made entirely of walls and fog, and the door maze, which consists of 25 decorated doors which may or may not open to let you through. The emphasis at this farm is families and even during the month of October when other farms have haunted mazes and other scary additions, you won’t find that here.

11. Richardson’s Farm and Market -Dunnville, Ontario

This corn maze has only been in operation for 12 years but remains one of the best in Ontario due to the hard work and dedication put in by the employees of this farm. This farm offers both a five acre corn maze for kids and adults and a mini one acre maze for the littlest ones. Instead of a normal corn maze that offers so many twists, turns and dead ends, this corn maze offers choices of two routes at many of the intersections. Watch out if you take the wrong route though as you will be walking a long way back once you hit the dead end. While you are here you may as well chuck some pumpkins at the targets, play in the straw bales and visit the animals.
