|Chosen a TOP 10 maze in America.The Largest Maze in New England.|
The BIG Maze covers 24 acres and is approximately a 2+ hour hike. The 3 miles of dirt trails are lined with 10' tall walls of corn.
Throughout the BIG Maze are unique things from past mazes and 100' of bridges. An Emergency Exit trail also covers most of
the maze giving you a chance to take a break, grab a snack or use the restrooms without having to start over from the beginning.
The BIG Maze is situated in a cornfield on a hill, so come prepared to hike up and down this hill as you cover an average of 2.5 miles. Large wheeled strollers will work on our dirt trails, however, there are several sets of stairs. You can also try the Scenic Maze afterward if you did not come across all of the unique items during your BIG Maze adventure
Anyone ages 15 and younger must have direct adult supervision during their visit.
Remember: NO SMOKING. NO ALCOHOL. NO VAPING. NO Weapons.
And Sorry, but NO PETS.
MAZE TIP: Due to the size of the BIG Maze, we begin the closing process 2 hours prior to our closing times. The last people enter the maze at 2 pm. We recommend you arrive by 1 pm so that you have a chance of solving the maze before the staff has to help you solve the maze before closing. We have everyone out of the Maze 30 minutes prior to our closing time.
The Great Vermont Corn Maze is a UNIQUE Attraction and, if you've never been,
please take a moment and check out the following information.
|We DO NOT Recommend the maze for 90% of teenagers!|
|Having helped thousands of people lose themselves over a number of years, we can definitely say that the people who enjoy the maze the most are
healthy ADULTS in their mid-twenty's to early 60's,
as well as adults with young children (under 14 years old).
Visitors who challenge the BIG Maze should be able to walk for at least 2 hours without a sit down rest. Persons with health concerns should consider visiting our Scenic Maze and PRETENDIN Play Area.
Unfortunately, 90% of teenagers 13 - 20 give up in less than 20 minutes
and have little interest in really solving the maze.
All teens must have adult supervision at all times.
Radios and cell phones are not considered supervision.
The 10% of teenagers who like the challenge of the maze, return
every year and we enjoy seeing them year after year.
|We Recommend bringing water and snacks/lunch.|
|The Great Vermont Corn Maze includes a number of attractions, which can be found on our home page.
The actual corn maze covers 24 acres with approximately 3+ miles of trails lined with 10 - 12' towering walls of corn. The maze is also situated on a hill, which allows for fantastic views and keeps the trails from getting too wet after the rain, however, this can also become a workout.
Most visitors spend 2 - 5 hours on the property enjoying the different attractions.
We sell candy, popcorn, water, soda, juice and ice cream novalties.
We do not sell lunch food.

|10 - 12 foot tall corn!|
|Corn is a plant and relies on good growing weather, however, when we open August 1st, the corn is typically 6 - 8' tall and quickly reaches 10 - 12 feet. nOnce the corn is 5' tall, the MAZE is almost as difficult as when it is 10' tall.|
|Thick and Green|
|In August and September, the corn stalks are thick, green and strong. After the first frost in early October, the corn begins to dry, weaken and takes on a great "FALL" look.
While our mazes have held up every year, there is always the chance that a strong storm could damage the weakened stalks the last weeks we are open. One year we lost over 200' of maze trails due to a storm in early October.
The maze is still a challenge, but we always recommend arriving earlier in our season.
