Danville, IN  – Beasley’s Orchard in Danville, Ind., is proud to present an 8-acre Corn Maze celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”

This year’s highly anticipated Corn Maze at Beasley’s Orchard opened on Friday, Sept. 9th and runs Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through October. The Great Pumpkin theme has been designed to offer visitors of all ages great fun and adventure while celebrating the 50th Anniversary of a well-known and popular movie – “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”

Maze designer Brett Herbst, the world’s leading professional designer of corn mazes, has created yet another amazing design with over 4 miles of paths throughout the maze. He hopes to challenge the wits and determination of those seeking to weave their way to the one exit of his mind-boggling puzzle. The maze is navigated through a series of questions on a passport. If a question is answered correctly, you will be led in the right direction. However, if you answer a question incorrectly, you will be led in the wrong (slightly longer) direction.

The maze can be navigated in less than half an hour, but it’s not uncommon for most parties to take about an hour to find their way through its intricate and deceiving trails. The maze is now open for the season and will remain open through October. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and Noon-5 p.m. on Sundays.

Tickets are $7 for ages 3 and up. Maze adventures can be scheduled for groups of 15 or more at a discounted rate. The maze can also be combined with one of the field trip adventures to the orchard or pumpkin patch for large groups.

Beasley’s also offers a variety of family-friendly agri-entertainment activities throughout their season. Along with the ever-popular Corn Maze, every weekend in October, Beasley’s offers hayrides to their 15-acre U-Pick pumpkin patch, a giant Straw Mountain for young guests to climb, the giant corn crib (corn-filled sandbox) and our Barnyard Bonanza which features: a giant jumping pillow, a spider web rope climb, and a variety of footballs, baseballs, and basketballs that will test your accuracy! We also offer a Combo Pass which grants access to all activities!

In addition to the corn maze, hay rides will take place during the weeks of fall break, from October 10th through October 21st from 1 – 5 p.m.

Guests will also not want to miss crunching into a hand-dipped caramel apple and tasting the award-winning, fresh-pressed Apple Cider inside the nostalgic 150-year-old Barn Market!
