Ah, fall ... as the season begins to make its way through the state, you can relish the prospect of sweaters, gorgeous foliage, and all things pumpkin. It's also the one time of the year when you can enjoy getting lost. On purpose.
Which is what makes Ohio's long list of corn mazes – some simple, others elaborate, all of them enjoyable – such a great way to enjoy the season in a unique way. Check out these five mazes, or discover your own. That is, after all, part of the fun.
Maze Craze in New Springfield
The theme of this year's maze is "Jungle Book." The design includes four mazes for various skill levels – from the 0.4-mile "BLUE maze" designed for kids and their parents to the more challenging, 5-mile RED maze. Make a day of it with various outdoor activities, including a playground, kiddie zipline, hayrides, and more.
McPeek's Mighty Maze in Coshocton
Located on the Coshocton KOA campground, this year's maze invites guest to uncover 'Outdoor Adventure.' The maze is also part of the Fall Festival, which takes place over four Saturdays in October (8, 15, 22 & 29). At the festival, your family can enjoy wagon rides, games, and the most iconic fall thing - pumpkins!
The MAiZE at Little Darby Creek in Milford Center
Celebrate an iconic part of Ohio sports as you navigate the maze designed in honor The Ohio State football stadium's 100th anniversary. Now in its 21ist season, the family-owned farm offers a healthy dose of family fun to accompany your maze navigation: a petting zoo, corn cannons, hayrides, a ball zone, and more.
Wheeler Farms Corn Maze in Whitehouse
This year's maze celebrates the LOCAL area with nods to Toledo icons like the "Stegosaurus" sculpture at Toledo Museum of Art, Toledo Mud Hens baseball team, and the city's moniker: Glass City. The farm also features The Butterfly House, a facility containing more than 1,000 butterflies of various species. Not into mazes? Let the rest of your party roam as you warm up at the campfire at no charge.
Maize Valley Corn Maze in Hartville
There's no shortage of wholesome, down-home fun at Maize Valley Winery, whose 8-acre corn maze contains trivia questions that relate to the year's theme. Also on site are pumpkin cannon demonstration, chicken area, push carts, tire pile, and more.
