The Story
Strange things are happening in the corn fields of Burger Farm…
Journey down a dark wooded path in this self-referential comic horror that throws it back to the '90s. Four friends reunite at a Halloween haunted farm afterhours for a night of revelry and reminiscing. But strange encounters lead the four to suspect that something may have come with more sinister plans. Filled with tricks and treats and a few scares, Children of the Corn Maze takes you back to that final Halloween before adults started asking, “Aren’t you a little old for this?”

How It Works
Groups leave every 10 minutes between 6:40 p.m. and 10 p.m. Entry times are reserved in advance. The experience lasts approximately 45-55 minutes. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your ticketed start time.

This event employs the use of recorded audio that will guide audiences through the trail as the story unfolds in real time. Participants must bring their own earbuds and a device capable of streaming SoundCloud, unless they have pre-reserved a Playhouse provided device.

Suitable for ages 13 and up.

Children of the Corn Maze
takes place at Burger Farm and Garden Center at 7849 Main St. (Rt. 32), Cincinnati, OH 45244.

We recommend wearing full-length pants and comfortable shoes that you can walk in for extended periods of time and don’t mind getting a little muddy.

Health & Safety
Face masks are required during the event. The small groups on the haunted trail may include people you don’t know, but the location makes it easy to maintain social distance throughout. Children at the Pumpkin Party will be able to maintain six feet of distance with those who are not from the same family group.

An Evening Experience
Visibility is limited in the corn fields, and tours will take place in the evening and at night. Flashlights will be provided, and pathways will be clearly marked.

Food, Glorious Food!
There will be concessions for purchase, including popcorn, nachos and cheese, hot pretzels, coffee and tea, bottled water, soda, apple cider, and apple cider slushies. Cash and credit are acceptable. (No food or beverages are allowed in the fields.)

The trail includes walking along uneven gravel roads and through corn fields. One portion of the walk includes a slight incline. Patrons may walk through mud. With advanced coordination, some accommodations for accessibility can be made.

Send the Kids to a Pumpkin Party!

Cost: $10 per child
Suitable for ages 4 to 12

When the grown-ups are away, the kids will play… in Pumpkinland! Treat your kids to a fun-filled 90 minutes while you venture out into the fields. Children will rotate between the three activities in small groups. Each session includes excursions in the Pumpkinland maze, pumpkin crafts and Halloween-themed movies like It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

How It Works
