Along with cooler weather, Halloween candy and a gush of horror movies, the fall season brings with it another long standing tradition: corn mazes. 

Several of the local corn mazes are now open for business, and each one offers something a little bit different between now and November. Here are three corn mazes within driving distance of Hall County to get your fall fix.

Jaemor Farms Corn Maze
The Georgia Corn Maze at the Jaemor Farms in Alto is home to several attractions like hayrides, a petting zoo and games like Skee Ball and duck racing. While the month of September is a little less busy, as the maze is only open on weekends, during the month of October the maze will be open every day between Oct. 4 and 27 before it closes after the first weekend of November.

The newest addition to the Georgia Corn Maze is farm tricycles for rent, but you can’t beat tried and true activities like the shooting apple cannons, riding the pumpkin train or exploring the mini-maze if you get overwhelmed by the main attraction.

September: 

  • Saturday: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

  • Sunday: 1-6 p.m.

October:  

  • Monday to Thursday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

  • Friday to Saturday: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

  • Sunday: 1-6 p.m.

November: 

  • Saturday, Nov. 2: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

  • Sunday, Nov. 3: 1-6 p.m.

Where: 5340 Cornelia Hwy, Alto,

How much: $14

Buford Corn Maze
The Buford Corn Maze’s 11th season brings new changes to the complex. Along with exploring the maze and taking part in seasonal events like the Haunted Forest Halloween exhibit opening on Sept. 20, the corn maze now sports a new, full kitchen.

Beyond the new food on the menu, the Buford Corn Maze’s headlining attractions include pony rides, a corn box for kids to play in and hayrides. While operator Tina Briggs told The Times it won’t be running this season, the Buford Corn Maze is working on opening a Farm Experience Center as well to give people a look into rural life, with hands-on exhibits with farm animals and equipment.

  • Friday: 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

  • Saturday and Sunday: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Uncle Shuck’s
Uncle Shuck’s is opening at a new location at Bannister Road on Sept. 14 after 17 years and the Dawsonville-based business has nearly doubled in size as a result. 

Standard entry will get you into the corn maze, as well as access to other activities like unlimited wagon rides, climbing on the tire mountain and, if you’re there late enough, there’s a bonfire with marshmallows to roast. But beyond the standard entry is the Dark Rows, the haunted maze open at night with only the moon to light your way. The haunted nights will begin on Oct. 4 and be held every weekend of the month, but until then there’s still the corn maze and all the other events Uncle Shuck’s has to offer.

September:

  • Fridays: 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.

  • Saturdays: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

  • Sundays: 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
