Still need to make the annual trek to an area farm for some autumnal fun? Consider checking out a spot with a work of art months-in-the-making — a maize maze. Aside from featuring some incredible, all-new designs for 2016, most mazes now incorporate clues and puzzles as you go, high-tech help and bridges for observation. All of these are located on farms where you can engage in additional fun seasonal activities like pumpkin picking, and some even offer smaller and easier mazes for tiny players. So click through, pick your fave maze and get lost!

For a Maze on a Century-old Farm: Ort Farms

Ort Farms is marking a century of growing this year, so it's no surprise its maze for 2016 celebrates this 100-year anniversary. A low ticket price of $6 gains you entrance to the maze, and the farm offers lots of other a la carte (and even free) fun such as
a petting zoo, hay rides, pony rides, hay pyramids and mazes and more.
