One A-MAZE-ING fall tradition

Your guide to local corn mazes


October 13, 2015

    Before pumpkin spice madness, there was another beloved fall tradition: the corn maze. Imagine yourself and a few of your closest friends banding together and venturing into a dark cornfield at night. It’s a little scary, a little strange and a lot of fun.
    During the day, these magnificent labyrinths are a family friendly day-out that is total lighthearted fun. By night, however, the fields become dark — and though they aren’t haunted houses, being alone in a corn field in the dark is a pretty nerve-wracking experience perfect for college students (or any sane human being).
    Luckily, Statesboro is close to quite a few. Here’s a guide to the mazes closest to us: 

1) Old Freeman Family Farm

Where: 644 Scarboro Highway, Sylvania
Driving distance: 15 minutes
Size:
It seems small — but then, so did the field in Children of the Corn, so …
Cost: $12.00
Hours: 10 a.m.–8 p.m. on Saturdays; 1–6 p.m. on Sundays; only open on weekends

2) Ottawa Farms
Where: 702 Bloomingdale Road, Bloomingdale
Driving distance: 45 minutes
Size: Not listed, but big enough to get super lost (trust me).
Cost: $10

3) Hootie's Corn Maze
Where: 1265 Old Louisville Road, Millen
Driving distance: 45 minutes

4) Poppell Farms
Where: 1765 Hyma Poppell Loop, Odum

5) TroupCorn Maze Adventure
Where: 105 Marie Church Road, Dublin
Driving distance: 1 hour 20 minutes
Size: Big enough to actually just be a crop circle that accidently got labeled as a corn maze. (On a side note: If you go missing in
         here, it was probably aliens.)

Hours: 10 a.m.–8 p.m. on Saturdays only.
