I’m still creeped out by the movie Children of the Corn, but if you like to be scared out in the middle of a corn field, here are five haunted corn mazes near Atlanta.
What could be better than combining two of the most popular fall activities, the Corn Maze and the Haunted House? If you can’t quite stomach the haunted corn maze, I’ve also added one not-so-scary option, flashlight nights at Washington Farms – now that’s a little more my speed.
What: Uncle Shuck’s The Dark Rows Haunted Corn Maze
Where: 4520 Highway 53 SE, Dawsonville, Ga. | 770-772-6223
The Dark Rows is an outdoor haunted attraction opened on the weekend. It’s a wickedly fun nighttime journey into the twisted trails of the moonlit cornfield. Bring friends, family or brave it solo, but be warned, you won’t be alone! Note: Ages 12 and under MUST be accompanied in the maze with a parent. Flashlights are not allowed.
What: Blowing Screams Farm
Where: Rock City, 271 Chattanooga Valley Rd., Flintstone, GA 30725 | 706- 820-2531
The Enchanted MAiZE site at Blowing Springs farm transforms into the Blowing SCREAMS Farm at night in October. Brave guest go through a menacing woods and dark swamp teeming with monsters. Due to the nature of some of the attractions, parental discretion is advised for Blowing SCREAMS Farm for children ages 10 and under.
What: Buck’s Haunted Corn Maze
Where: 1923 New Hope Rd. Dawsonville, Ga. | 706-344-8834
Buck’s Corn Maze is a 12 acre maze planted in a 20 acre field of corn next to Cochran Creek with a beautiful view of the Appalachian Mountains. Saturday nights in October, the maze is haunted after dark.
What: Cagle’s Haunted Barn
Where: 362 Stringer Rd., Hickory Flat, Ga. (near Canton) | 770-345-5591
Cagle’s Dairy has a corn maze, but also on site is a haunted barn. It’s not quite a haunted maze, but I bet if you do the haunted barn first, you’ll be seeing ghosts all through the maze afterwards.
What: Washington Farms
Where: 5671 Hog Mountain Rd. (Hwy 53), Watkinsville, GA 30677 (706) 769-0627
Grab your family and friends and GET LOST in this 8.5 acre corn maze! Friday and Saturday nights stay late for flashlight nights. Other activities include campfires and s’mores, a vortex tunnel, and jumping pillow.
