No, we’re not in the low 60’s bearing Uggs, gloves, hats, and scarves while gripping a hot chocolate because hey, this is Florida! We still like to act like it’s fall. What better way to celebrate the nostalgia of fall activities than to have some fun at a corn maze? Orlando and surrounding areas have some great spots for your enjoyment.
Long and Scott Farms Corn Maze in Mt. Dora is a great place for all ages to explore! The maze is open Saturdays and Sundays until December 12, 2021. There’s even a special nighttime maze that couples will enjoy on specified dates. Be sure to purchase your $15 ticket in advance.
“Join us for our 19th annual corn maze and pumpkin patch! This year our theme is Dinosaurs. Get lost in our 6.5-acre corn maze! Jump on our huge jumping pillow, slide down our 60ft super slide, play on our giant castle-like playground. Not ready to tackle so many acres in the big maze? Try out our 0.5-acre mini maze for a shorter journey into the corn, get your fortune, and learn about the different types of farming. As you journey through acres of pathways inside the corn maze, you find pictures and clues to help you play the game, making learning about Farm to Table fun for the whole family. Compete with friends to collect all the hidden clues as you hunt for hints and answers for your game sheet. Get into the great outdoors and soak up the fresh country air. Take an audio tour of our farm on the hayride while learning about what we grow and our history. Check out our Market, Cafe, and food vendors. As always, we are committed to ensure the comfort and safety of our guests and employees.”
