Five Fun Corn Mazes in Connecticut
Out of the News-Times this morning comes an article about the new seven acre Corn Maze at Castle Hill Farm in Newtown. "What about getting lost?" I say. I have a tendency to get lost in a large corn maze, and because I'm a dude, I'm certainly not going to ask anyone for some direction. I would rather wander around in the maze for a couple of hours than embarrass myself by asking a 7 year old kid how to get out while I'm crying. That will not be an issue at the Castle Hill Farm maze because there are 30 signs with themed facts that will help you to find your way out. They open up on Saturday, Sept 26 and they're located at 25 Sugar Lane in Newtown. Admission is $9.
Lyman Orchards in Middlefield, CT features a Corn Maze in the shape of a Pez Candy Dispenser and features over 2 miles of twisting and winding pathways in 4 acres of towering cornstalks and there's only 1 way out. Admission is $10 and $1 goes to the American Cancer Society.
Plasko's Farm Corn Maze is in Trumbull where they invite you to come and "slay the dragon." Adult tickets are $8, children 4 to 10 are $6, and children 3 and under are free. The farm's 17th Annual Scarecrow Festival is this Sunday, Sept 27. Check their FB page for all the events and details.
We travel to Wells Hollow Creamery in Shelton for our next Corn Maze. There's not much info on their website about the maze, but there are plenty of photos, not to mention their homemade fresh ice cream, birthday parties, a working farm, and animals!
Our last spot on the tour is Garden's Dream Farm Corn Maze in Enfield, where they invite you to come and find Bigfoot! Garden's Corn Maze is nearly seven acres and is fun for the whole family plus it's priced right at only $5.00, and kids 5 and under are free. They ask that all kids under 13 be accompanied by an adult and to allow 90 minutes to complete the maze.
