Fall came quickly this year, but that’s okay because it means Seattle families get to enjoy their favorite fall activities even sooner. Between the apple picking, pumpkin patch visits and Seattle corn mazes to navigate, there’s plenty to fill up your weekends this season. Whether a nighttime corn maze, kids corn maze or run of the mill daytime trip through the towering corn stalks is what you’re after, we’ve got a just-right corn maze for your crew below. Read on!

Editor’s note: As things continue to evolve due to the Delta variant, please double-check information with individual farms before heading out to a corn maze with the kids. Remember to follow local and state health guidelines when you visit.

Carpinito Brothers Farm

Nin K. via yelp

As one of the closest corn mazes to Seattle, Carpinito Brothers goes all out each year with their corn mazes. They say that the secret is aliens, but we are not so sure. This year's huge canvas's theme is all about football. What could be more exciting than the UW vs. WSU rivalry? Trying to find your way out of this pigskin-themed maze, that's what. Other farm activities include a hay maze, goat walk and farm animals galore. The corn maze is only open in the daytime and the last admission is at 6 p.m.

Bonus: You can combine all of your fall activities into one trip to Carpinito Brothers. Pick up pumpkins and fall veggies, take pictures with their fun props, travel through the hay maze, watch the duck races, say hello to the farm's furry friends and enjoy their fab concessions, (hot roasted corn, anyone?) too. 

Drive time: Approximately 20-30 minutes from Seattle.

Dates & Hours: Daily, Sept. 24-Oct. 31, 2021 9 a.m.-dusk

Bob’s Corn & Pumpkin Farm

This year at Bob’s Corn & Pumpkin Farm, the ginormous maze will have you twisting and turning through geometric paths that lead to the center of Bob’s 12-acre field. For new maze explorers who aren’t ready to tackle the whole 12-acres on their own (or at all), they offer two kids’ mazes that are equally impressive, and will keep little ones engaged at "stations” they find along the trail. We love the special rope maze that allows kids to try to find their way out in easy view of parents. Other fall festival farm activities include: hayrides, trike track, cow train, big slides, corn crib, an apple cannon and more.

Bonus: Make a night of it at Bob's by reserving one of their 18 fire pits that are scattered along the perimeter of the maze and awesome for get-togethers and marshmallow roasting. Fire pits are available for two-80 people and run from $30-$80 per hour with farm admission. Psst...fire pit reservations go fast so book online now.

Drive time: Approximately 40 minutes from Seattle.

Dates & Hours: Daily, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. through Oct. 31, 2021. Night Maze, daily, 5-9:30 p.m.

The Farm at Swans Trail
Cindy T. via Yelp

Learn a little geography with your corn maze. A family favorite, Swan’s Trail Farm is well-known for its Washington state corn maze.

Allison Sutcliffe

While there are two Picha Farms, the family's harvest events are happening at their Puyallup location. Last year they celebrated the release of the Kraken at their five-acre corn maze.

Double R Farms

Maggie G. via Yelp

Double R Farms harvest events are known by many as affordable family fun. The 5-acre corn maze is $5 a person. But you'll find other fun things to do as well. Try your hand at the pumpkin slingshot (just don't throw your back out!). Double R Farms offers the largest selections of pumpkins in the valley and at only .29/pound, they are the best deal around. Sounds like somebody will be seeing more pumpkin pie in the future...

Carleton Farm

Whickham Farms via yelp

The owners at Carleton Farms are pretty humble when describing their Pumpkin Land and Adventure Nights, but there really is a lot to do here in addition to the five-acre corn maze. You'll get a bigger bang for your buck on the weekends, but you'll face smaller crowds during the weekdays. Everyday activities include the 5-acre corn maze, hayrides, game zone, kids bucket train and the Farm Korral that features tube slides, swings, roller slides, a web crawl and punch pumpkins. On the weekends, you also find opportunities to try out the paintball gallery, apple guns and pumpkin cannon. The best part? Carleton Farm is now home to a full-size produce market too.

Thomasson Family Farm

Each year, this popular farm creates one of the most gorgeous corn mazes in our area, making it well worth the trip to Enumclaw. This year's maze is an homage to the farm itself (it's their 15th anniversary!), including bunny ears, sunflowers and their signature pumpkins ripe for picking. The maze takes approximately 45 minutes to navigate, so plan accordingly. (Psst...the maze is hand-cut into the field by the owner’s youngest daughter, Tia, who also designs it every year. Now that's amazing!) This maze is a non-scary adventure, suitable for the whole family. Other activities include laser tag, zip line, wagon ride, tractor train ride, an apple slingshot and more.

Remlinger Farms

Remlinger Farm

And now for something completely different...Perhaps the cream of the crop of pumpkin festivals is Remlinger Farms which offers over 25 rides and attractions in addition to the corn maze.

We’re talking a real roller coaster, antique cars (with two steering wheels!), a carousel, flying pumpkins, canoe rides, big swings, big slides and hayrides plus a bunch more. But amongst all this fun, the corn maze should not be passed over. If a pony ride is on your little navigator's radar, be sure to reserve your time in advance.

Mosby's Pumpkin Patch

Monica D. via Yelp

After 25 plus years, Mosby Farms knows how to do corn mazes right. Parents rave about the maze at Mosby because it’s so well-maintained. The corn is lush and high, the paths are less mucky than at other farms and the routes are tricky enough to keep parents (who are pretty sharp, if you ask us) entertained. After your hike, pick a up cart and head out to the pumpkin patch for a perfect souvenir and show your support for local agriculture.

Drive time: Approximately 40 minutes from Seattle.

Dates & Hours: Daily, Oct. 1-31, 2021 from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. No maze entrance after 5:00 p.m.
Cost: $12/adults; $10/kids (3-12); Free for kids under 3

Navigating Corn Mazes in the time of COVID:
1. Please remember to check COVID policy and safety for each farm before visiting so you know what to expect.

2. Some of these farms require advanced tickets for corn mazes and other farm activities. Be sure you’ve got yours before heading out. They sell out fast!

Safety Suggestions:
1. The buddy system is always key and pairing an adult with each group of kids is a fail-proof way to make it out of the maze without tears. That is, unless, your kids are better at getting through the maze than you are, in which case, the tears may be on your part!

2. Many of the fields have their mazes online–check out their websites before you go and let your kids form a plan, or even create a cheat sheet, to give them some confidence.

3. Teach older kids to use the sun position to keep themselves oriented in the maze–have them take notes of where the sun is when they enter the maze (at their back, for instance) and hopefully it will help them from going in circles or doing unnecessary back-tracking as they go.

Good to know: If you’re looking for additional corn mazes close to your ‘hood, check out our pumpkin patch roundup. Most of our area’s U-pick pumpkin patches also offer fun mazes.
