Five Adirondack Corn Mazes: Daytime Twist and Turns or Flashlight and Fright Nights

A different view from the Great Adirondack Corn Maze This weekend seems to be the Adirondack kick-off for all things spooky. For my household of scaredy-cats, I look for a range of events that my Adirondack family can enjoy a thrilling adventure without the need to co-sleep. One activity that seems to hold the attention of every age is a trip to the corn maze. Getting lost through those corn stalk twists and turns provides hours of fun. Day or night, an Adirondack corn maze can provide hours or fun for all ages. Now with Halloween around the corner these various locations are upping the thrills with evening scares and flashlight nights. Here are a few of my family’s favorite spots.   In the Adirondack High Peaks is the Great Adirondack Corn Maze in Gabriels. It's open from Thursday to Sunday from noon to dusk through the end of October. Special flashlight nights on Friday and Saturday have the corn maze open for evening hours.  Dont miss the Tucker Farm's Frig
