The famous Maybury Farm Corn Maze is now open and will challenge visitors with 10 acres of thick, tall corn plants.
As in past years, the maze begins with a tractor-pulled hayride from the welcome center at the farm to the maze where intrepid visitors are dropped off to attempt to weave their way through the puzzle. Those who find all eight wooden animals hidden throughout the maze will be eligible to win four tickets to the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus in November.
Another hayride will take visitors back to the welcome center where cider, donuts and snacks that are available for purchase.
Those looking for an even more difficult challenge can attempt to complete the corn maze in the dark. The maze is open until 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays for those brave enough to try and find their way through with only the stars to light their way.
The Maybury Farm Corn Maze is open from 6-10 p.m. Fridays, from noon until 10 p.m. on Saturdays and from noon until 7 p.m. Sundays. The last wagon leaves for the maze one hour prior to close. The Corn Maze will be open through Nov. 2. Group tours and bonfires for 15 or more are available. Please call (248) 374-0200 to reserve a date. Admission to the Corn Maze is $7 per person and includes a hayride and admission to Maybury Farm. As always, children 2 and under are admitted free. All proceeds from the Corn Maze are used to pay winter feed bills for the animals at the farm.
