Maize in the City's offerings include a mini maze, a pumpkin field, hayrides, pony rides, a petting zoo, a jumping castle, an air slide and more. You can truly get lost in the Crazed Corn Maze, a 20-acre maze that engages visitors in an entertaining smart phone trivia game. In order to get directions to the next checkpoint, you’ll need to choose a category and answer a question correctly.
Small children will love the mini maze, which alternatively offers paper checkpoints, where they can collect hole punches as they navigate their way through the corn field. And don’t worry about the kids getting lost: parents and grandparents get to tag along for free!
In addition to the popular maze, kids love exploring the pumpkin field (free admission) and getting to choose their own pumpkins. On weekends, Maize in the City also offers hayrides: a classic fall activity that everyone can enjoy.
Maize in the City is open throughout the week beginning in September and running through the end of October.
At night, however, when the kids go to bed, grown-ups come out to play. The place transforms into the Haunted Field of Screams, Denver’s largest haunted attraction!
The Haunted Field of Screams boasts three haunted sights. At the Haunted Field, terrified visitors are confined to 35 acres of haunted cornfield, surrounded on all sides by 16-foot-tall cornstalks and terror lurking around every turn.
From zombies to clowns and chainsaw-wielding madmen, there’s something to scare even the most confident of visitors!
At the Dead Man’s Night Maze, a revived version of the original corn maze haunt takes visitors through a series of twisted turns, never-ending paths and dead ends. By the time you realize you’re completely lost, it’s too late: the zombies and monsters are already on your trail.
For those looking for a more interactive haunted experience, the Zombie Paintball Massacre takes guests on a moonlight hayride that quickly turns into a zombie invasion. Visitors will have to think fast and use high-powered paintball guns to fight off zombies and save the group from being eaten alive.
Repeat guests shouldn’t roll their eyes and shrug off the scares: Haunted Field of Screams' owner and operator Joe Palombo keeps visitors on their toes with new additions each year, including fresh nightmarish characters and new rooms.
Activities offered at Maize in the City change daily. Tickets can be purchased at maizeinthecity.com. To purchase tickets to Haunted Field of Screams, which is open Thursday through Sunday nights, visit hauntedfieldofscreams.com.
Both attractions are open only for certain dates from September through Oct. 31, right in the midst of the fall season in Denver.
