It’s finally Fall, ya’ll, and that means there is a bushel of corn-fusing fun to be had at a local corn maze. From Peter Pan-themed to delightfully spooky, there’s a bumper crop of corn mazes near Atlanta. Lend an ear and we’ll tell you where to go.
With a maze spread over 12 acres with 4 miles of trails, you can get as corny as you want at Uncle Shucks. Don’t worry, there are exits throughout the maze so you’re sure to make it out alive, and if the littles just aren’t big enough to understand the thrill of the corn maze, you can amaze them with the corn cannon, mini maze (made out of hay bales for optimum visibility), pumpkin patch, and pony rides. On Friday and Saturday nights in October, brave the horror that is The Dark Rows, an unique haunted trail through some of the most twisted trails of our corn field!

Price: Corn maze $20, Haunted Maze $20, Combo $25 per person
