First–don’t get confused. When you see the yellow and black signs proclaiming a corn maze do not fly by. Instead, look for the turnoff down a long road with a big pumpkin sign!

Park, then head on in to the big barn. You’ll want to plop down a couple of bucks and do the corn maze!

There’s also a Water Balloon Slingshot (also pay) but don’t worry–there’s plenty that doesn’t cost a thing! First? We tackled the maze.

Giant Corn Maze in Indiana

Now THIS is fun! You’ll be handed a map before you set off. This is a big and sprawling maze with narrow pathways.

As you can imagine, this takes a bit of planning! The corn is planted in two directions so that you can’t cheat.

After it’s grown, they paint the stalks that need to come done, spray for weeds, and get to work. There are two sides–a long one hour long maze or the shorter 20ish minute maze.

We fit in the shorter maze which was incredible. Hey, there was even a bridge in the middle of it! Is that neat or what?

We weren’t ready to call it quits just yet! After the maze we headed back to the main area.

With a small playground, a  giant “corn box,” rubber duck race, hay stacks to climb, and Washoes, well, let’s just say there’s plenty to do!

The four of us ran back and forth between attractions. It was so fun! That corn box is something else! The owner stated that he’s seen more than a few grandmas hop in the giant shelled corn box with their little ones. Is that cute or what?

We always talk about our “favorite thing” in the car on the way home. This time? We were all divided and couldn’t narrow it down!

You can easily make a day of it at Guse Christmas Trees and Pumpkin Patch when you pick out your Halloween pumpkin! There’s so much to do–no wonder it’s a popular spot for field trips!

They serve food and snacks and, again, the prices are reasonable. Just what you would expect from a small Indiana town pumpkin patch.
