There are no shortages of corn mazes in Indiana throughout the Fall. Each one is unique in it’s own way. My family has visited several corn mazes over the years, and this year we found one that we have proclaimed to be our all-time favorite maze and also the main event at Greendell Landscape Solutions Fall Festival.
When we arrived at Greendell’s, we purchased our tickets for the corn maze and pumpkin patch at the Garden Center, and then we waited outside for the free tractor hay ride out to the largest corn maze my family has ever seen in our lives! During my family’s first visit to this enormous and unique corn maze at Greendell’s Fall Festival, we tracked our mileage and time on my husband’s smart phone. The corn maze is approximately 1.25 miles long, and due to our family’s shenanigans, it took us about an hour to get through the entire adventure! My family’s favorite part about this corn maze was the break at the halfway point that lead us along a dirt path away from the cornfield and through the woods. Near the end of our tour through the woods, there is a lovely area to sit and rest on a giant log to figure out a puzzle on a nearby sign that reads, “Relax, take a seat, find the pumpkin face.” I will offer a hint…it is carved into one of the trees, but it is very difficult to spot! Once you get through the woods, expect to return back through this fun-filled corn maze.
The corn maze offers clues on signs throughout to guide you in the correct direction. In order to know the answers to the clues, you will need to have some knowledge of Disney’s movie, “Inside Out.” My family loved this movie, so we were fortunate to know most of the answers.
Before you venture out into this most awesome corn maze, be sure you take along plenty of water for your family to quench thirst and don’t forget the sun protection!
After you finish playing in Greendell’s Corn Maze, walk over to their 4-acre pumpkin patch to purchase a pumpkin to take home. One of the tractors will come by every 10 minutes to pick up guests to return to the Garden Center. Not too far from the Garden Center at the entrance of the pumpkin patch is an area for children to play a few games like corn hole and a potato sack race. On the weekends, guests can purchase food and beverages at a concession stand set up outside in front of Greendell’s Garden Center.
My family lives on the north side of Indianapolis, so it took us about 45 minutes to drive to Greendell’s, and we spent close to 2 hours enjoying their Fall Festival. Everyone agreed it was well worth the roadtrip, and we will definitely return next year to Greendell’s Fall Festival!
