Ready to get lost?
Area corn mazes are officially open and ready to take you on a twisty, windy adventure this fall.
Watch out for the yeti at an Expedition Everest-themed maze, solve the mystery of the missing farmer at a maze just for kids or — for a completely different experience — try one of the mazes by flashlight at night.
Here are some of the best corn mazes to visit in York, Lancaster, Lebanon and Adams counties.

Beware of the yeti along the twisting paths of the corn maze at Maize Quest Fun Park. The theme this year is Expedition Everest.

Admission is $12, and includes the corn maze and more than 30 Fun Park attractions, like an 80-foot slide, a jump pad, gem mining, games and a snack bar. A maze and train ride combo is also available for $15, and the super maze and train combo (maze, unlimited train rides, maize-o-vision glasses and a drink voucher) can be purchased for $18.
