Located in the heart of PA Dutch Country, Cherry Crest Adventure Farm is a unique place where fun, family, and farming come together.
A leader on the growing edge of "agri-tainment", we work hard to give your family an opportunity to laugh and learn while engaging in a variety of wholesome activities on our working farm! We farm 365 days a year but the "agri-tainment" division is open just 85 days. We're also a great choice for school or work groups looking to book a field trip, company picnic, teambuilding event, or when looking for fun things to do or tourist attractions in Lancaster, PA.
Our farm has so much to offer, you'll need 4-5 hours to experience everything! Why not plan to make a day of it and let us take care of the rest!
The Amazing Maize Maze™
Things to do in Summer Corn Maze What is a Corn Maze?
What is a Corn Maze?
Spend about an hour in the world's most dynamic and interactive 5-acre corn maze with over 2.5 miles of paths, scenic bridges, and clues.
And don't worry if you take the wrong path! Our two Maze Masters are always on hand to get you back on track!
Getting Through Our Maze
To find your way through our cornfield maze, your group will first receive instruction from our helpful staff. Then, walking at your own pace, the world's most interactive maze will entertain and tease you as you happen across the Kernels of Knowledge along with a variety of clues, tunnel slides, watering stations, and much more!
You will be swayed along as our "Maze Master" spins tunes from a musical library that appeals to just about every musical taste.
Oh, and don't forget to check out our bird's eye view from the two bridges where you can see everyone's flags waving high above the corn!
The average time to find Victory is about 1 hour, but don't worry, plenty of help is stationed along the way if you get turned around. Rest assured, we've never lost anyone yet!

Our Challenge Chooser levels are available to help you and your group have the best possible maze experience:

DIFFICULT: If your goal is to complete the ultimate challenge of finding all the map pieces and all the Kernels of Knowledge, then you're on your own! But keep an eye out for the red signs of encouragement along the way. This challenge takes approximately ??? hours... it's up to you!
