There aren't many better ways to get the family excited for the fall in NYC than taking the kids for a tour through a 3-acre corn maze in the middle of Queens and letting their imaginations run wild. The Queens County Farm Museum's Amazing Maize Maze opened for the season Friday, September 18, and it's just one of the quintessential fall activities happening at this New York City institution.
The Amazing Maize Maze is the only corn maze in the city. My family and I have conquered lots of these mazes and can happily say that the one at the Queens County Farm Museum is just as much fun as its country counterparts. We made it through in about an hour—even with a pair of 8-year-olds leading the way. That left us plenty of time to enjoy other farm fun. If you plan to visit later in the season, be sure to save time to check out the very colorful floral installation debuting Friday, October 2.
Read on for our tips to make the most of your visit to the farm and the corn maze. But no, we aren't giving you the route. You'll still need to figure that out yourself!
