About Our Corn Maze
At what time of the day do you close the maze?
On our general admission days the last paid admission is at the posted closing time. Please see the hour’s section of the website. The maze will remain open approximately one hour after the posted closing time.
Can I visit the maze on a field trip day from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.?
No, you cannot visit during a field trip day. Only school groups with reservations are allowed during the week.
How long does it take to walk the maze?
The average time is 30 to 40 minutes for Saturday visitors and 15 minutes for school field trips. We have different mazes for Saturday visitors and field trip visitors.
Will I get lost?
We hope so! That’s part of the fun! While everyone gets lost to different degrees, we have designed the maze to be an interactive activity that makes a trip inside the maze more than just a haphazard stroll. At the beginning of your visit you have the option of taking a “passport”. The ten questions on the passport will help you make your way through the maze.
Is the maze lighted at night?
No. Please bring your own flashlight or you can purchase one of our very bright glow sticks. You need a source of light to navigate through the maze because reading is required to find the correct pathway within the maze.
How do you make the maze?
It takes lots of practice and patience! Our particular method of designing the maze is a trade secret, but we can tell you that we plant the whole field in late July and then take out the design when the plants are very short. The design is created on a computer and then transferred into the maze acreage.
How big is the maze?
The maze itself is 7 acres. It is divided into two mazes, one for Saturday visitors and one for field trips.
Can I eat the corn?
You could, but it would not taste very good. The variety of corn that we grow is field corn for cattle.
Is the maze haunted?
No. The focus for our fall regular maze is fun for the whole family. We offer a haunted maze during the last two weeks of October. Please see our hours and admissions section on our website for dates.
Field of Fright
Are you open Halloween night?
No, unless Halloween occurs on one of our regularly scheduled nights of operation. Please visit the hours and admissions section of our website.
Are the monsters/actors allowed to touch you?
The creatures inside the Field of Fright have been forbidden to touch you. However, they do get very close. Occasionally you may brush up against them. You may also come into contact with some of the sets. But you will never be intentionally touched.
Can we take flash photos of your haunted scenes/actors?
No, photography of any sort is permitted at Seward Farms Field of Fright. The paths will be dark in areas and people’s eyes (especially the monsters) adjust to the low light. When you flash your camera, you’re not only ruining the other customer’s experience but you’re hurting the monsters’ eyes.
How scary is the Field of Fright?
Field of Fright is most appropriate for older children and adults. But since each child is different, we leave it up to you, as the parent, to decide if your child would enjoy the haunted experience. Our actors are expected to have a high thrill of spook. It’s a haunting good time!!
How long is the wait in line for Field of Fright?
In general, wait times are less than 20 minutes. However, on Saturday nights the lines will be much longer. It is suggested to come early to avoid the longer lines or come on Friday Nights during the Field of Fright.
