Corn mazes may just seem like mazes cut out of corn fields, but they are a lot of fun. They can be a generic maze with a few twists and turns or more intricate patterns that feature the face of a movie character or tv star. During the fall, they tend to be a popular activity for families. Many of these mazes also have other attractions like petting zoos, a pumpkin patch and hay rides. Here are some of the more popular corn mazes located throughout the country.
