Unique Family Fall Fun!
New this Year: The giant 5 Acre maze with the theme “Pirates of the Corn-ibbean”, has a pirate's flag, parrot, and a chest full of treasure. The cornfield comes alive when it is filled with maze goers who enter the 2.5 miles of “cornfusing” pathways. They soon find themselves facing countless choices, while attempting to answer the trivia clues en route to the elusive victory bridge. Whether it is during the night or day, each maze wanderer is armed with a survival guide and flag on a mission to collect puzzle pieces of the maze design and test their trivia skills to help them find their way out. If one gets “udderly cornfused”, they can always wave their teams flag frantically, to signal the “corn cop” to come to their rescue.
This maze is the work of husband-wife team Kate and Hub Knott, who has seen their maze grow from just a small event to one of the regions most popular, in just 18 years. “Dedication, hard work, and vision are what make this possible. We listen to our customers, and every year we just keep getting better because of it. We are praised for our colorful, hand-made, non-commercial farm event filled with farm animals, educational displays, kid’s activities, and great food from local vendors. The maze is the main feature, and will easily challenge a group for an hour. The rest of the farm activities can fill several hours of fun”.
Due to popular demand are more night time maze dates because wandering through the corn at night with a flash light is just too fun to pass up. For an unforgettable experience with your family or group, rent a private campfire space! Imagine walking through the rustling corn in the dark, hearing laughter all around, kids, adults, cool fall breeze, moon glowing over head, and no idea of where to go next while a bonfire awaits your exit. Then come huddle around the campfire and roast a smore! For about the same price as a movie, you can spend hours with family and friends making the best of your fall while supporting Virginia farms.
In addition to the corn maze, there is an entire Barnyard of fun for kids of all ages (and adults too!), including farm animals, pumpkin sling shots, giant slides, mini-mazes, rope mazes, tire swings, giant hay bale obstacle course, fidget ladders and more. The barnyard is filled with farm education to add learning to the fun.
Set in Virginia’s beautiful rolling hunt country, our farm is the perfect place to take a hayride with distant views of Shenandoah National park and the changing fall colors. We have food, so feast your taste buds on our famous Roasted Sweet Corn, apple cider, and kettle corn. Visit our country store to choose from thousands upon thousands of local pumpkins, apples, Virginia honey, our famous and best-seller Pumpkin Pie Fudge, apple butter and preserves, old-time Appalachian crafts and more. We are told we have the best pumpkins in Virginia.
In addition to the thousands of weekend visitors, The Corn Maze in The Plains is a perfect place for birthdays and private parties, company picnics and school field trips with group discounts available.
