The Woodland Corn Maze is back for 2010! Sponsored again by the Heidrick Ag History Center, they are excited and ready to unveil this year’s new design. The Maze is perfect for couples, groups, families and friends who want to try their luck by day or brave the dark at night. You can try their fun and frightening Haunted Maze Friday and Saturday Nights in October. It's a great laugh and a real SCREAM (get it?? scream? Ha!)!
Located in Woodland, this seasonal attraction was the first corn maze in California. It is similar to The Wooz except it is, well, a corn field. Once the maze closes, they can make money off of the crop itself. The maze pattern changes every year, and you can see aerial photos of past designs on their website.
Beginning the first weekend in October, the maze transforms into a haunted "Field of Screams" on Friday and Saturday nights until Halloween. Admission is $2 extra those days.
A portion of the proceeds goes to the Heidrick Ag History Center, which owns the land that the corn maze is on.
It would be really cool if somebody could add some of the history of Woodland Corn Maze... how it got started, who has run it and sponsored it over the various years, where it has been, etc
2005-10-12 20:13:57 I love this corn maze. I went with my sister and a few cousins two years ago, and we had a blast. It was freaking freezing, though, so remember your coat and gloves! —SummerSong
2005-10-29 01:31:14 I recommend going at night because it adds a chill to the atmosphere. Plus the admission is 9 dollars on haunted nights. —SimonFung
2007-07-31 14:44:01 It's a good maze, unfortunately the "field of screams" is usually field with lots of bratty high school/jr. high school kids. —LizethCazares
2007-10-31 21:25:06 This is the second year I've gone and I love it. I'm so glad they decided to do the field of screams on Halloween this year! Lots of fun. —EmmyMelton
2008-10-12 13:39:40 I tried to go last night and it was closed! Today there was a note on their website. Anyone know why they closed early this year? Bummer. —wormgirl
2008-10-18 20:19:16 Woodland Corn Maze is closed for the year. We drove around looking all over for it and couldn't find it. Couple of people in town said it was closed for the year!!!! —h22a919
2009-10-25 18:57:06 The website has been down for awhile, and no one is answering the phone. I called a business down the street from the location of the maze and was told it wasn't open anymore. I'm really disappointed, as I was very interested in trying it. Can anyone actually confirm that it is closed, temporary or otherwise? —Cherim
2009-10-25 19:11:34 From the paper and the news, it was closed due to the storm that hit a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to go too but drats. —KimN.
2009-10-26 10:58:31 I was hearing all over that the Dixon maze closed after the storm, but never heard this about the Woodland maze. But I suppose if the weather took it one, it probably took out the other. —AmLin
2009-10-26 12:47:11 The Dixon maze was excellent this year. Unfortunately, like the Woodland maze, it was closed for the year because of the storm. See http://www.coolpatchpumpkins.com/ for details. —IDoNotExist
Comments from 2010:
2011-10-15 17:59:56 Is the Woodland Maze open this year (2011)? Their web site says it's closed but that they will be back in 2011. —HenWeigh
2011-10-19 13:39:56 Following up on HenWeigh's comment, has anyone been? My email to their website bounced :-( —CraigBrozinsky
2011-10-19 13:53:06 They do not have it this year 2011, the Ag center says they didn't work out the contract but are working towards it for next year, bummer. —Theangrydiner
2012-10-01 Looks like they're not back for 2012 either, the website redirects to one about Yakima, Washington. JenniferRutherford
