6 Corn Mazes to Explore in Rhode Island
Some are family-friendly and some are scary, but there's no doubt you'll enjoy getting lost in all of these cornfields.
Please note: This has been updated from a version that originally appeared in October 2019.
There’s something challenging and rewarding about successfully navigating your way through the twists and turns of an elaborately designed maze (with nary a piece of cheese in sight). Here are some options for getting lost throughout the area:

Moreover the farm offers pick-your-own pumpkins as well as pumpkins, other seasonal vegetables, candy apples, cider, cotton candy, popcorn and more for purchase at their farm stand.

Escobar’s maze is eight acres large (and they’ll even rescue you if you get lost!). This year’s maze is a field of dreams where the owners invite you to make your wish come true. Hayrides are also available Saturdays and Sundays from 12–5 p.m. for $ per person. After mastering the maze, head to the pumpkin patch and choose your favorite from a Rhode Island farm. Don’t miss the halloween party on October 29 for games and crafts. If you wear your costume, you get $1 off admission.
