ABOUT "Maris Farms"
Take a unique hike through the cornfield. A several-acres field of corn with trails carved in a maze design you can solve with help of clue cards available at the maze entrance. The maze can take up to 45 minutes to solve and you’ll experience the challenge of solving the maze with few landmarks except for the characters we’ve provided and clues to help you along. Trails are dirt with either straw or bark added to help reduce mud and dust as well as help with traction, and you can enjoy the panoramic view of the farm from two large bridges you’ll traverse along the way. We design and maintain the trails to be as safe as possible, but keep in mind: rain + dirt = mud, so come prepared!

Destruction Zone For those who like shooting things or the rush of going fast, this is the place for you. For Sharp Shooters! For those who like shooting things or the rush of going fast, this is the place for you. The Destruction Zone includes activities like the Corn Shooters, where you can blast corn cobs at targets; Pumpkin Blaster, where you will blast small gourds at a host of targets; and the famous Trebuchet (catapult), where pumpkins are launched between 100-200 feet toward a trampoline. Note: The Corn Shooters and Pumpkin Blaster are paid activities, while the Trebuchet is an exhibition performance conducted by staff members on the weekends. Get ready to slide! Mine Shaft Slides This venue is for the fast at heart, who are seeking a bit of a thrill as they scream down a 60-foot incline inside a 4? Tube. There are two slides that sit side by side for those who like to race. All ages are welcome. The slides are embedded in the ground and sit at approximately a 45-degree angle. Participants enter the top of the tubes through a well-built covered deck. They are “spit” out safely into soft gravel after about five seconds of downhill thrills.
