15 Twin Cities Corn Mazes to Get Lost in This Fall

corn mazes

If you are looking for connection with your busy family this fall, then getting lost in the middle of a corn maze is exactly what you need. Hear me out: a family that cooperates together toward a collective problem is not only teaching how to listen to each other and problem solve, it also sets everyone up to win on the same team! In my house where my kids can make a competition out of ANYTHING, this is the bonding moment we need.

We gathered up FIFTEEN different corn mazes in the metro area sure to give you that exciting rush of being found when you thought all was lost. With a list this long, there are options for anyone. Want a quiet little orchard with a quaint path to wander? We have one. Want an all-day-fun-filled experience that competes with the State Fair? We have that one, too. We have mazes to suit all ages and lost-ability factor (is that a word? If not, we just made it one.) Go get lost, and then found, in Twin Cities’ very best corn mazes. I dare you to not get the Corn Song in your head by the end (oops. Too late!)
