Explore NW Indiana’s Largest Corn Maze From August 26 – October 30

You could, quite literally, run nearly a third of a marathon in Exploration Acres’ 18-acre corn maze. Exploration Acres operates the largest corn maze in northwest Indiana, with five different mazes, all differing lengths and levels of complexity, for a total of eight miles.

Whether you want to explore the haunted house, the headless horseman, a cemetery, a spider web, or a black cat, this maize maze will have you twisting and turning as you make your way around.

You can also try your hand — er, feet — at a pedal car race, free a three-ear corn cannon salute, or just play in the hay.

Exploration Acres is open from August 26th through October 30th, on the weekends.
Fridays, 6 pm – 11 pm, Saturday, 10 am – 11 pm, and Sunday 12 noon – 7 pm. Admission is $9 for adults 13 and older, $7 for seniors 65 and older, and $6 for children 12 and under.

But there’s more than corn in Exploration Acres. They also offer a pick-your-own pumpkin patch, hay rides, a straw bale maze, a picnic area, fire pits, and a country store.

Exploration Acres is located five miles south of Lafayette, IN at 6042 Newcastle Rd. between I-65 and US 52.
