Conner Prairie corn maze honors 'Sleepy Hollow'


Some scary family fun is coming up at the Conner Prairie living history museum in Fishers! Here's their press release:

This year, Conner Prairie’s award-winning corn maze won’t just challenge puzzle-hungry guests, it will serve up some screams, too. The maze transforms into a scare-filled haunt after dark where families can enjoy navigating the 22,160-foot corn maze during the day. But from sunset to 10 p.m. on select nights during the Headless Horseman Festival, the Haunted Maze interactive attraction brings the legend to life in a terrifying new way.

This year’s design – sponsored by Corteva Agriscience – is a nod to the event’s literary heritage. In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Washington Irving’s "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," the maze depicts a sword-wielding headless rider leaping out of an open book, surrounded by bats in flight. The maze features three adventure paths full of twists and turns:

  • Puzzle Maze: Test your wits in our family-friendly puzzle maze.

  • Kids' Maze: Younger guests will love this shorter maze that’s perfect for little ones.

  • Haunted Maze: Inspired by real ghost stories of the region, explorers should prepare to be scared when they enter this maze during the Headless Horseman festival in October.

Social distancing will be maintained, with staff pacing guests as they enter the maze, and limits placed on the number of guests who can explore the maze together. Masks must also be worn at all times, in accordance with the State of Indiana and City of Fishers mandates.

The maze will be open Tuesday-Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Saturday, Sept. 26. Paid museum guests and members can enter the maze for $5 per guest and $3 per member. Children under two are free.
