Where To Find A Corn Maze In State College

With the slight change in weather over the last few weeks, it appears that fall is almost upon us, folks.

As the leaves begin to change, what is better than spending a day away from campus at a fall-themed corn maze? Probably nothing.

These enthralling attractions set the stage for the perfect start of the fall season, along with a delicious apple cider or pumpkin spice latte, of course. State College is home to several thrilling fall-themed corn mazes that we highly recommend adding to your fall bucket list.

For now, let’s take a look at some of our favorite corn mazes in and around State College.

Harner Farm Market

Harner Farm, located only a few miles away from campus on Whitehall Road, hosts an annual fall festival with games, activities, homemade goods, and a corn maze.

The festival runs this Saturday, October 7, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, October 8, from noon to 4 p.m. If you want the full fall experience on top of an awesome corn maze, we recommend visiting Harner Farm over the Penn State football bye week.

Wasson Farm Market

Wasson Farm Market is situated on Shingleton Road in State College and boasts a corn maze as part of its annual Fall Fest. Along with having an opportunity to navigate the maze, visitors can embark on a hay ride to the pumpkin patch and pick out a pumpkin at the end of the ride.

The festival also features an assortment of fall goods, including apple cider floats and homemade soups. With that being said, remember to bring extra cash as Wasson Farm Market only accepts payments in cash or check.

The festival runs the next two weekends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. Make sure to add this corn maze and all of the fun activities at the Wasson Farm Market Fall Fest to your list.

At The Barnyard

At The Barnyard is located further away from campus in Lewistown, Pennsylvania, but has one of the greatest corn mazes in the surrounding State College area. This corn maze is gigantic and is elaborately shaped to give each challenger a tough time. 

At The Barnyard also has designated “flashlight nights” and “moonlight maze” events where the corn maze stays open until 10 p.m. Normally, At The Barnyard is open on Fridays from 4:00 p.m. until dark, Saturdays from noon until dark, and Sundays from 1 to 6 p.m.

Fields Of Adventure

Looking for more of a road trip? Fields of Adventure located in Aspers, Pennsylvania, features an array of fall-theme attractions, including an impressive corn maze. This year’s maze even has a theme of “Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Kenworth,” an ode to the American trucking company.

Along with the corn maze, patrons can experience a long list of unique fall activities, including pumpkin bowling, a 100-foot hill slide, horse swings, and even a 600-foot zipline. This weekend, the farm will also feature live music, further contributing to the engaging atmosphere.

Those interested can purchase tickets on the farm’s website. Fields of Adventure will continue to offer its fall seasonal events through November 4 and is open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sundays from 1 to 6 p.m.

Risser-Marvel Farm Market

Risser-Marvel Farm Market is located in Annville, Pennsylvania, and offers visitors a range of fall-fest activities, including a trip through its expansive corn maze. Included also in admission to the maze are hay rides, giant Connect 4 and checkers games, rubber ducky races, and grain bin basketball games.

The farm also has the option to book group outings where those interested can experience a corn maze adventure culminating with a campfire in which all supplies will be provided.
