Corn mazes aren’t what they used to be — they’re bigger and better than ever.

Instead of just carving a path through a field of corn, the folks at Jaemor Farms in Alto have turned their maze into an adventure that features a different theme each year.

In addition to the maze’s path creating an interesting design, there are also etching stations and fun facts along the way. This year’s maze is based on the legend of Johnny Appleseed.

After navigating your way through the maze, the fun doesn’t stop there. Many venues offer other amenities like hayrides, children’s activities and concessions.

Uncle Shuck’s Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch in Dawsonville has the added fun of a corn cannon and bonfire area for roasting marshmallows.

The Goofy Rooster Corn Maze in Helen has a barrel train and a Noah’s Ark playground for the younger corn maze enthusiasts.

On Fridays and Saturdays, the North Georgia Corn Maze in Cleveland offers “Movies Under the Stars,” an outdoor film screening.

For the rest of this month, the Buford Corn Maze will also host a haunted forest on the weekends.

No matter where you decide to test your corn maze navigating skills, don’t forget your comfortable walking shoes or a flashlight if you decide to try your luck at night.
