The new, 7-acre corn maze at Conner Prairie opens Sept. 23.

Staff Report
A large corn maze that’s sure to be a hit this fall and beyond at Conner Prairie has been designed and cut and is growing tall at Conner Prairie.

The new, 7-acre maze opens Sept. 23 and will remain open during regular operating hours through the end of the museum’s outdoor season on Oct 29.

The overall, 300,000-square-foot design was created by Precision Mazes of Lee’s Summit, Mo. There are actually two mazes inside the experience – a short maze designed to take about 30 minutes to navigate and a longer one that’ll take about an hour or more for guests to get through. The short maze is recommended for younger children.

It will cost $5 for everyone – museum members and everyday visitors – during regular operating hours and $3 for students in school groups to go through.

But from Oct. 12-29 during the 34th annual Headless Horseman fall festival at Conner Prairie, there’ll be no charge for those attending the event to experience the maze.
