Temperatures are on their way down, which means it’s time to bust out those jeans and hoodies and get ready for fall. With the autumn seasons comes corn mazes and hayrides in southeast Michigan, which is like music to our ears. To help you get ready we have picked four corn mazes and hayrides that we think you should check out this fall.
Those looking for a good scare to go along with their corn maze should check out the Grand River Corn Maze’s Slaughterhouse Adventure. This year’s theme is The Purge: Election Year, inspired by the movie of the same name that came out this year. The theme is dedicated to both political parties over the course of the 20 acre corn maze. There are also three award winning haunts, a newly renovated haunted house, and a mildly haunted hayride.
The Corn Fun Family Farm in Casco has plenty of great fall activities for you and your family to enjoy. Returning for its 11th season, the farm covers 20 acres and features two corn mazes that are four miles in length, a rope maze, hayrides, a pumpkin patch, a petting zoo, and cider and donuts. This year’s corn maze theme is “Vote USA” as the maze is in the shape of a donkey and an elephant. It’s the perfect place to celebrate fall so be sure to check out everything they have to offer.
The Bestmaze Corn Maze might not be scary or haunted, but it is a fun place to take the family. This year’s maze features Finding Nemo designs with characters like Marlin and Dory. There is also the Trail of Terror, just one mile from I-96, which will give those looking for a scare plenty to look forward to. Information on that maze can be found here.
Farmer Charley’s Kackleberry Farm in Monroe is the perfect place to take the family on a fall afternoon. Featuring a 10 acre corn maze (which is even more fun at night during their Flashlight Farm Nights) and a leisure hayride, there’s also a pumpkin patch, barrel train rides, pig races, and nightly bonfires. Special events will be happening throughout the fall, so be sure to check out the schedule to plan the perfect day for you and your family.
