Few experiences are as signature to autumn in the Hoosier State as finding your way through a corn maze. There are dozens of mazes around Indiana, leading to impressive corn maze designs. In 2018, we have mazes that pay tribute to cancer survivors, Indiana sports teams, gummy bears, John Deere tractors and the Netflix hit show Stranger Things. Below are some of our favorites for the fall season.
Exploration Acres, Lafayette
With the success of the Netflix series, which is set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, it was pretty much a sure thing that a Stranger Things corn maze was going to generate some attention! Exploration Acres in Lafayette is home to Northwest Indiana’s largest corn maze and this year’s design takes visitors into “The Upside Down.”
Beasley’s Orchard, Danville
Located in Danville, Beasley’s Orchard is a favorite of locals in the Indy area, offering u-pick apples and pumpkins and great apple cider.

County Line Orchard, Hobart
This Northern Indiana farm is a local favorite! Selling 20 varieties of apples grown on site, this is a must visit fall spot in Northern Indiana.

Conner Prairie, Fishers
An interactive history park, Conner Prairie is incredible to visit year round, but in the fall, there are even more reasons to explore. The annual Headless Horseman festivities should be on your bucket list, and Conner Prairie’s 11-acre corn maze is always a treat. This year, the maze features the Headless Horseman. Take a ride in the 1859 Balloon Voyage to get a birds-eye view of the maze and make sure to stop at the Apple Store to get some delicious cider, apples and more!
Ridenour Acres, Angola
Ridenour Acres offers what residents named the best corn maze experience in Northeast Indiana. The corn maze offers two different levels – beginners or advancee. The beginner level takes 10-15 minutes to complete while the advanced level takes 40-50 minutes. You are welcome to try both mazes if you wish. The maze honors and was designed by Olivia Stoy, a local teen battling T-Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. Proceeds from the maze will help families like Stoy’s in need of help with medical bills.
Shipshewana Corn Maze
Located in the downtown area of Shipshewana, the Shipshewana Corn Maze is a favorite in Northern Indiana! The maze features Jayco RVs in 2018, celebrating the local company’s 50th anniversary!

Wendel Farms, Brookville
A true family farm in Franklin County, the Wendel’s lost a very young Son in law this year to cancer so they created their maze in his honor.

Now everyone can go to the moon and back with their little ones.
