The 6 Scariest Florida Corn Mazes to Get Lost in This Halloween!
“I imagined a labyrinth of labyrinths, a maze of mazes, a twisting, turning, ever-widening labyrinth that contained both past and future and somehow implied the stars.” – Jorge Luis Borges

1 | Smith Family Ranch CornFusion Corn Maze – Lakeland, FL | There's more than a 'kernel' of truth to the legend that says the dead will rise and walk among us on Halloween! The Smith Family Ranch, which is located on the outskirts of Lakeland, pays homage to this fact, and offers an amazing CornFusion Crop Maze & Fall Festival each year around Halloween with an eight-acre Corn Maze, Pumpkin Patch and Pumpkin Carving Station, Bounce Pillow, Farm Animals, Hayride, Mini Maze and much more. However, truly adventurous zombie-slayers (who are at least 48 inches tall) can opt for the adrenaline-fueled Zombie Farm Paintball Hayride, where they are armed with a paintball gun and given the goal of taking out as many zombies as they can during a terrifying nighttime hayride! It’s simply one of the most popular Florida Halloween events in the area and an experience you’ll never forget. WHERE: 13444 Moore Road, Lakeland, FL 33809 | WHO: (863) 559-9952.
2 | Newberry Corn Maze – Newberry, FL | At the immensely popular Newberry Corn Maze just outside Gainesville, you can take your pick of non-scary or scary Halloween thrills since this Florida corn maze operates as a “playful maze” during the day and transforms into a “walk of terror” full of goblins and ghouls at night! Once you’ve conquered the corn maze, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the horrifying Haunted House on the premises. Other highlights of the Newberry Corn Maze include a Haunted Hayride, Kids Area with carnival-like games, Mechanical Bull, Bonfire, live DJ and more. In addition, a concession stand sells snacks and drinks, which makes this one haunted corn maze that really has some "meat on its bones". WHERE: 20015 W. Newberry Road, Newberry, FL 32669 | WHO: (352) 354-5118.
3 | Conner’s A-Maize-Ing Acres – Hilliard, FL | Just northwest of Jacksonville, at the crossroads of screams and dreams, lies a fifth-generation family farm that is home to Conner’s A-Maize-Ing Acres, a Florida corn maze that attracts 20,000 visitors annually during Halloween and features fun for all ages – including the Field of Screams, Haunted Trail, Nighttime Wagon Ride and much more. The annual Fall Family Fun Fest Day with a Scavenger Hunt, Costume Contest and Haunted Trail takes place here on the Saturday before Halloween on October 27, 2018, but plenty of fall activities abound during the days leading up to and afterwards,... just beware of the Creeper, they just might follow you home after you're ghoulish night of horrors! WHERE: 19856 County Road 121, Hilliard, FL 32046 | WHO: (904) 879-5453.
4 | Hallows Hill Corn Maze & Haunted Trail – Baker, FL | A community favorite known as “Northwest Florida’s Premier Halloween Attraction, Hallows Hill Corn Maze (AKA The Baker Corn Maze) is a Florida corn maze that offers something for everyone with both haunted and non-haunted attractions. Plenty of spooky attractions abound such as the Hallows Hill Haunted Hay Ride and Nightmare on the Old Spanish Trail, while kids will enjoy the Petting Zoo and other non-scary Halloween attractions (maybe you'd like to join them and become one of the Children of the Corn!). Don’t miss this special seven-acre corn maze – a truly terrifying Halloween tradition on Florida’s Panhandle that will leave you spooked and smiling! WHERE: 5899 Buck Ward Road, Baker, FL 32531 | WHO: (850) 803-2367.
5 | Harvestmoon Farm – Masaryktown, FL | Billed as the “Biggest and Best Maze in Hernando County,” the five-acre Florida Corn Maze at Harvestmoon Farm consists of the Traditional Corn Maze (which features a new design every year), Flashlight Maze and Pumpkin Patch, as well as a Hill Slide, Jumping Pillow, Cow Train, Petting Farm, Pony Rides, and Barnyard Playground and Games. Last but not least, kids will enjoy the opportunity to meet “Spookley” the square pumpkin. By the way, Masaryktown (population: 1,040), which is an unincorporated community in Florida located approximately 35 miles north of Tampa, was founded in 1924 and named after Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk (1850-1937), the first president of Czechoslovakia, which I suppose is as close as you can get to Transylvania in the state of Florida. Chuckle if you want to, but be warned! The jump scares at this maze make it anything BUT square. WHERE: 15990 Stur Street, Masaryktown, FL 34604 | WHO: (800) 373-4811.
6 | Long & Scott Farms Corn Maze – Mount Dora, FL | Family owned and operated, Long & Scott Farms opened its first corn maze (Statue of Liberty) in 2003 - yes, that IS over 15 years ago now! Over the years, the Long & Scott Farms Corn Maze attraction has continued to evolve and today boasts two Florida Corn Mazes (the design and theme change annually - think 'The Shining' minus the life-sized carnivorous topiaries,... are maybe not?), as well as a permanent Tree Maze, Rope Maze, Mist Maze, Labyrinth/Rock Maze, 60-foot Super Slide, Jumping Pillow, Small Kids Zip Line, massive fort-like Playground, Tot Lot, Sand Tires, Tether Ball, Hay Rides and covered picnic areas,... for when you're done screaming your brains out and need to dig into your zombie victuals ("Mmmmmmm,... Brainssss!"). The premises include the Country Market & Café, which features locally grown produce, and lots of great room to move, groove and (mercifully) get tuckered out for the kids. Lots of great scares here in and around Halloween especially at nightfall,... because,... they mostly come at night,... mostly. WHERE: 26216 County road 448A, Mount Dora, FL 32757 | WHO: (352) 383-6900.
