Chicago Now: 2014 Best Corn Mazes
Chicago Now rated Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm’s Corn Maze #2 Chicagoland area corn maze!
There are scores of Corn Mazes at pumpkin patches and farms around the Chicago area, but there are only three that truly stand above the competition as both a work of art and a spooky good time…
2. Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm, Lockport
Siegel’s has two different mazes for you to choose from. They have a smaller 2 acre maze with an anti-bullying theme targeted at kids, and a larger 15 acre maze themed after Wrigley Field.
They choose the Wrigley Field theme to celebrate the ballpark’s 100th anniversary, and because the farm is over 100 years old, making it a Centennial Farm. They have been hosting a corn maze since 1990, and next year will be their 25th anniversary. The construction of their maze begins in March when they decide on a theme, and then in July the actual maze construction begins when the paths are cut into the cornfield. Then, it is a waiting game as the corn grows taller for the fall festivities.
The maze at Siegel’s opens September 20th and runs until November 1st. The large maze is open on weekends and Columbus Day, and the smaller maze is open daily from 10am-6pm. For more information and coupons, visit: www.OurCornMaze.com
