It’s that time of year again when the little spooks are getting ready for trick or treating and the entire family can look for some fun at a good old-fashioned corn maze. If you live in or are visiting the Charlotte, North Carolina, area, you are lucky to have some fine choices.

The Aw Shucks Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch is especially good for those with young children. It isn’t a haunted maze so there is nothing to scare the little ones; just good family fun finding your way out of the maze. Everyone is advised to bring a flashlight at night. It usually takes less than 30 minutes to find your way out.

Country Days Corn Maze offers two mazes for two different age groups. The Little Ears Maze is available during daylight hours for children under 10 with a parent or guardian. Several easy exits are offered so your adventure can be as long or as short as you are comfortable with. The Big Ears Maze is for older fun seekers. It is on seven acres and an interactive game is incorporated into it for those wishing to participate. The game consists of 10 multiple choice trivia questions. With each one answered correctly you get a new direction to take to help find your way out of the maze. Upon request, maps are available for both mazes.

The Rural Hill Amazing Maize Maze is on over seven acres and offers an interactive game. Participants enter the maze and begin to look for mailboxes for map pieces that will eventually help them build their own map and find their way out of the maze. This maze is particularly challenging as it has different levels within itself and it is difficult to tell which level you are in at any time. Assistance is always available if needed.

These are just a few of the many delightful corn mazes available in this area. You will no doubt enjoy yourself and make some very happy holiday memories with your families and friends regardless of which one you choose. Have fun and stay safe.
