The largest corn maze in the world may be in Dixon, California but one doesn't need to travel all the way to California to enjoy this fun and frustrating autumn pastime. One of the greatest and finest corn mazes is in the New England state of Vermont. And as a bonus, everyone knows that New England looks stunning in the fall! Without a doubt, it is one of the craziest corn mazes found anywhere in America.

The Great Vermont Corn Maze is located on a family dairy farm in North Danville, Vermont. Every year they create an entirely new maze design so no one will have the advantage of knowing it from last year. For those who are keen to explore America's largest corn maze in California, see here.

Who Enjoys The Maze

While this is a fun experience for families and groups, it seems that the teenaged cohorts of Generation Z and Alpha are a little less enamored with it. It seems well suited for kids and adults. Great Vermont Corn Maze states:

"Having helped thousands of people lose themselves over 23 years, we can definitely say that the people who enjoy the maze the most are healthy ADULTS in their mid-twenties to early '60s, as well as adults with young children (under 14 years old)... Unfortunately, 90% of teenagers 13 - 20 give up in less than 20 minutes."
