What is Eliada’s annual corn maze?

Eliada’s annual corn maze is a 12 acre maze with 2 longer trails, and 2 children’s trails cut out of a field of corn. Accompanying maps with check points help guide you through 4 miles of maze trails.

The two shorter trails for younger children we call ”Storybook Trails”!  These trails take you on a fun adventure as you read the stories of Spookley the Square Pumpkin and Ciderella and the Little Glass Sipper!  Spookley and Ciderella merchandise are also for sale for children and families to continue to enjoy the stories and characters at home.

In addition to the corn maze, we have other fun attractions! To learn more about our attractions click here!

The event also has a large tented picnic area where you can purchase food and beverages from our concession stand, play corn toss, or hop around on bouncy horses!
