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:

1. Salisbury Farm

Salisbury’s five-acre corn field of art features a different theme every year (see past years’ themes here). This year’s theme is “Vintage Pinball Fun” with the maze design resembling a giant pinball machine. They also host two moonlight maze events during October where they invite visitors to navigate and explore the maze under the stars. Moreover, the farm offers pick-your-own pumpkins as well as pre-picked pumpkins, other seasonal vegetables, candy apples, cider, cotton candy, popcorn and more for purchase at their farm stand.

Hours: Through Oct. 29. Mon.−Fri. 10 a.m.−4 p.m.; Sat. and Sun. 10 a.m.−5 p.m.; plus the moonlight mazes Oct. 14 and 21 from 6−9 p.m.

Prices: Weekdays: $13 for ages twelve and older; $10 for children. Weekends: $15 for ages twelve and older; $13 for children. Moonlight Mazes: $19 for ages twelve and older; $16 for children

2. Escobar Farm’s Corn Maze

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 Harry Potter Day on Sunday, September 23 (dress up as your favorite character for $1 off entry) or the Halloween Costume Party on Saturday, October 28 (again, costumes earn you a discount!) for games and crafts.

Hours:  Through Nov. 5. Fri.–Sun. (plus Columbus Day) 10 a.m.–6p.m.

Prices: $10 for ages twelve and older; $8 for children ages four to eleven; free for children younger than four years old. Note: Escobar only accepts cash on site, so if you’d like to use a card, you can buy tickets in advance through their website here.

3. Scary Acres Haunted Corn Maze and Hayride at Confreda’s Greenhouses and Farm

There’s a reason why Confreda Farm’s Scary Acres is one of the most popular ‘haunts’ in the state. First, you can hop on the Dark Harvest Hayride and let it drive you through their Haunted Town. Next, you can brave the Haunted Burial Grounds Corn Field. Finally, try to survive the curse of the Bayou in  Scary Acres’ brand new haunted attraction.

Hours: Through Oct. 29. Fri.−Sun. 7−10 p.m.

Prices: $30 (includes hay ride, maze, and new Bayou attraction) for all ages; price increases to $35 on peak nights. Note: tickets must be pre-purchased; they are not available at the door.

4. The MAiZE at Confreda’s Greenhouses and Farm

This year’s Maize theme pays thanks to the farm’s “Pop.”. The farm’s fall festival offers unlimited hayrides, barnyard animal encounters, kiddie amusement rides and more. The six-acre maze takes about an hour to complete and you can enjoy goodies from the numerous food vendors before or after you enter. You can also pick-your-own pumpkins and find fresh apples, cider and apple cider doughnuts at the fruit stand market.

Hours: Through Oct. 29. Sat. and Sun. (and Columbus Day). 10 a.m.−5 p.m. (the last time slot is at 4 p.m.).

Prices: $15 for combo pass (hayride and corn maze admission), plus $1:50 for amusement ride tickets. Free for ages two and younger.

During the day, there are $5 pony rides and $5 tractor rides (free for children younger than five) as well as pick-your-own pumpkins and food trucks.  In case your little one is too wee for the real corn maze, there’s also a free kiddie version constructed out of hay bales.
