Wrigley Field Maze at Siegel Cottonwood Pumpkin Farm in Lockport
Siegel’s inside created a Wrigley Field cornfield maze in honor of the Cub’s 100th anniversary. What a fun thing for families to tackle on a fresh fall weekend!
There are 12 acres of maze -and this is how it works. As you wind your way through the maze – you can sure get lost in here –
As visitors wind their way through the 12-acre maze, they will Cubs and Wrigley Field trivia questions at 10 stop points along the way. Answer correctly, and they’ll go the right way. Answer incorrectly, and they’ll head in the wrong direction.
Need help? The folks at the farm sell a little cheat sheet map for a buck. Zombies will also give free advice on how to get out along the way. Don’t worry, they aren’t scary. Lean in close for a fantastic photo opportunity. It takes most folks about an hour to tackle the maze.
The Wrigley Field maze is open 10 a.m. – 6p.m. with last entry at 4:30 p.m. every weekend and Columbus Day through Nov. 1. It costs $14 to get into the farm on weekends and $12 during the week – but the maze is only open on weekends. Guests can save $5 if you order your tickets online in advance. They can also purchase a bounce back pass on their way out, which allows them to visit again for only $5. Grandparents get in free with a grandchild during the week.
Besides the maze, there are lots of other things to do at Siegel’s Cottonwood Pumpkin Farm. There are 40 acres of what they call “affordable family fun” with 20 attractions. There is a smaller corn maze designed for children; lots of animals to meet at the petting zoo; a story-telling Pumpkin Fairy; gem mining; even a low-fright haunted barn for the little ones. There are hayrides out to the pumpkin field where you can pick your own pumpkins and pony rides for $5 a child.
