Let’s get lost in a corn maze! 

These insane twists and turns of nature used to be done manually, but now they’re mostly done by GPS and computer-controlled machines. We’ve rounded up the best corn mazes open for 2023 around the greater Bay Area, plus we’ve also thrown in a few smaller corn mazes and hay mazes if you’re looking for something more old school.

Please always check with the venue first before attending. We’ve done our best to make sure everything is accurate for 2023, but prices, details, and hours can change, so please contact the venue first.
