Sam Mazza’s Corn Maze – Colchester, VT

 

Sam Mazza's Corn Maze

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this review.

Over the years on family trips to Vermont, we have visited Sam Mazza’s Farm in Colchester several times for their farm products and events.  Last year we visited their corn maze (the first corn maze we had ever done), and had such a wonderful time.  I have to say I think I had as much fun as the kids, so when they begged to go back, we didn’t hesitate to say yes!

The corn maze is open in September and October (check their website for specific dates and hours).  Each year there is a different maze design, which is fun to see what they will have from year to year.  This year the corn maze consists of a pirate, mermaid, and parrot, which the kids were excited to navigate!

We purchased our tickets in the main farmer’s market building – adults ages 12+ are $8.50, kids 3-11 are $5.50 (check their website for details and coupons).

Everyone gets a map as well as a booklet to complete a challenge, and you can do as much or as little of the maze as you like.  The first part of the maze is the smallest, and most kid-friendly (as it is shorter and easier).

The kids love just running through the maze but also like the idea of completing a mission.  There are numbers on the map that correspond to numbers on your card, and every time you find a station, you punch your map (each punch has a different shape).

There is also another booklet where you have to find clues (not marked on the map), which are actually tough to find.  We find that the kids are too tired after walking the entire maze (top to bottom, and reaching all the numbered points) to want to find the hidden stations, but it makes it great for older kids and adults to get the most out of the maze.

My husband is usually trying to guide the kids using the map while I follow in tow (usually laughing while trying to keep up!).

The maze stretches 3 miles, but you can select smaller portions (such as the first and easiest section), try to attempt all 3 miles, and you can leave the maze whenever you feel like it.

When you are done with the maze, there are farm animals near the farm store, a playground for kids, and plenty of treats, foods, and more inside.  It is great timing after the kids are hot and tired to grab some cold apple cider and fresh apple cider donuts.  In the fall they also offer hayrides and pumpkin picking, which is another fun thing to do after the maze.

Overall, the maze has been a lot of fun and we also enjoy everything else that Sam Mazza’s farm has to offer, and we hope to be back next year!
