BULLOCK FARMS

83 Emleys Hill Rd., Cream Ridge

This four-acre maze was built on the side of a hill, which makes it great for views of the 100-acre farmland below. A $5 ticket to this maze also includes entry to the Bullock Barnyard, where there’s a petting zoo and games.

DONALDSON FARMS

358 Allen Rd., Hackettstown
908-852-9122, donaldsonfarms.net

Donaldson Farms boasts a nine-acre corn maze, and this year’s theme is “Salute to Our Military.” It takes about 45 minutes on average to find your way out, but you always have the option to surrender.

ETSCH FARMS

556 Buckelew Ave., Monroe Twp.
732-794-6785, etschfarms.com

The kids will love this eight-acre corn maze shaped like a farmer holding a pitchfork. Venture through the maze at night with a trusty flashlight, or try to solve the crossword puzzle hidden among the stalks. 

HAPPY DAY FARMS

77 Iron Ore Rd., Manalapan
732-977-3607, happydayfarmnj.com

Your curious little monkeys will be all over the theme of this year’s 10-acre corn maze: Curious George! Be sure to try Maize-O-Poly, too. And don’t worry about getting lost: Just scan any of the QR codes in the maze with your smartphone for a photo of your location. Afterwards, ride pedal carts, race rubber ducks and relax in a giant rocking chair.

HEAVEN HILL FARMS

451 Rte. 94, Vernon
973-764-5144, heavenhillfarm.com

The 10-acre Sussex County staple features a Wizard of Oz maze adventure made from 10-foot-tall corn stalks perfect for getting lost in. Don’t miss Cornelius Quest’s Picture Find, where you win clues to find your way out.

HOWELL LIVING HISTORY FARM

70 Woodens Ln., Lambertville
609-737-3299, howellfarm.org

It seems appropriate that the 250-year-old Howell Farm hosts the longest-running corn maze in New Jersey. Enjoy the maze’s game board and hidden clues before catching a hayride to the pumpkin patch.

LUPARDI’S NURSERY

75 Blanch Ave., Closter
201-768-0017, lupardisnursery.com

Lupardi’s Nursery has a six-acre corn maze that’s sure to keep your little one exploring. Throughout the course, kids can find and collect stamps from 12 different stations. Lupardi’s also has a 30-foot tree house slide, wagon rides and more.

SPRINGDALE FARMS

1638 S. Springdale Rd., Cherry Hill
856-414-8674, springdalefarms.com

Learn the secrets of lost civilizations at this tricky Maize Quest. Bring a flashlight from home to explore the labyrinth at night on Flashlight Fridays.

STONY HILL FARMS

15 North Rd., Chester
908-879-2908, stonyhillfarms.com

Stony Hill Farms always has a unique shape to its 10-acre corn maze, but this year’s is one you won’t see anywhere else: a giant sea turtle. Throughout the maze you’ll learn fun facts about these endangered creatures, plus what you can do to protect them. You can even “adopt” a turtle on site. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Sea Turtle Recovery.

VON THUN FARMS

519 Ridge Rd., Monmouth Junction
732-329-8656, vonthunfarms.com

Does your kid love Minions? This year’s MAiZE is chock-full of your favorite little yellow friends. There’s clues to help guide you: text messages, a passport station and stamps. You can also pick your own apples and pumpkins or go on a hayride with your family.
