ABOUT "All Seasons Apple Orchard Corn Maze"
Get Lost in our Corn Maze Each year more than 10 acres of corn at All Seasons is transformed into a corn maze with over 3 miles of pathways and a lookout bridge. The corn maze has 2 paths: a shorter one for youngsters, and a more challenging one for the maze enthusiast. Each year our corn maze design changes and this year’s design is Scooby Doo inspired! Admission to the corn maze is included in the Barnyard Admission. All Seasons’ corn maze in Woodstock IL will be open until November 3rd. Pumpkin Picking at the Pumpkin Patch Take a wagon ride over to our pumpkin patch and have a blast pumpkin picking.
