Imagine a video game where you have to find your way through a giant maze with so many twists, turns and dead ends that you could spend hours wandering around, wondering if you’ll ever find your way out. Now imagine you could play that game in real life. If you have a corn maze nearby, you can.
Here are just a couple of cool corn mazes you can visit across Canada this autumn. There's a lot more of them, at farms all over the country, so there just might be one near where you live.

There’s a huge, 4-hectare maze (the size of 10 football fields!) or a smaller 1.2-hectare maze. If you’re feeling particularly brave, you can explore the maze at night by flashlight.
Unlike most mazes, the Hunter Brothers are happy to share how they make their famous corn maze. Once you’ve beat the maze, you can visit the petting zoo, go down the giant slides or watch a pig race!
To celebrate Canada's 150th birthday, Saunders Farm has created a huge 1.6-hectare corn maze that you can explore. And if that's not enough fun for you, this farm has the largest collection of mazes and labyrinths in North America made out of corn, hedges, grapevines, and more. If you come around near Halloween, you can take a haunted hayride!

This year's 3.2-hectare maze is pirate-themed! Throughout the maze there's pirate fun facts and clues to questions that will have you guessing throughout your journey through the maze. If you’re going the right way, you’ll find the answers. If not…well, you might be wandering around for a while.
This 5-hectare corn maze has been around since 1999, and every year there's been a new design for the maze — that's over 20 designs so far! There's challenges in the maze to keep you busy along the way.
This is our Pendray's third year in business and they're celebrating Canada 150. Their maze includes a map of Canada, a polar bear, a hockey player, the Parliament Buildings and a salmon! Go check them out. They'd love to show you around.
This is the 18th season for Bose's corn maze and like many of the other mazes across Canada, they're celebrating Canada's 150th birthday and the design looks like a postage stamp with our maple leaf and a beaver in the centre. Not only can you visit rain or shine, but you can bring your flashlight and check out the maze at night.
