Corn mazes first became popular in the United States when farmers found a way to supplement their income by creating intricate designs in their corn fields and inviting tourists to visit them. The first corn maze was in Annville, Pennsylvania, and since then they have cropped up all over the country, often with “a-mazing” artistic designs such as characters from movies or particular themes. From the largest Guinness World Record-holding 60-acre corn maze created by Cool Patch Pumpkins in Dixon to the Cornbelly’s new Superhero Corn Maze, which celebrates favorite classic superheroes, here are some of the United States’ top corn mazes that promise a world of fun for the whole family.
