Haunting Good Times at A Maze In Corn and Deer Meadow Farms – St. Adolphe & Springfield

If you’re looking for a spookier, terrifying experience, then you have to visit A Maze In Corn and Deer Meadow Farms.

A Maze In Corn (St. Adolphe) – Did you hear? A Maze In Corn’s Haunted Forest is now open until October 30, 2022! The Forest has come alive, its creatures have awakened, and around every corner lurks a haunting and monstrous being. This interactive outdoor experience will surely put anyone who dares to enter in the Halloween spirit and send chills down your body.

For those with children, the 3:30 to 5:30 time slots are more family-friendly, so the whole family can have a spooktacular good time!

Hours: Thursday & Friday 6:30-10:00; Saturday & Sunday 3:30-5:30 & 6:30-10:00.

Deer Meadow Farms (Springfield) – You don’t want to miss Deer Meadow’s Forbidden Forest and Storybook Lane! The Forbidden Forest is taken over by ghouls, ghosts, madmen, and monsters of all kinds, and if you dare to enter, be prepared for a nightmarish experience that will haunt your dreams.

Your journey begins with the Haunted Hayride taking you to The Forbidden Forest, which has twenty larger-than-life sets and fifteen acres of Forest filled with creatures lurking in the shadows and full special effects with lights, sound, fog and SFX. It’s no wonder it is one of Manitoba’s top-rated Halloween Thrillers!

Dates: October 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29, and 30

While the Forbidden Forest can be a little extreme for young children, kids can still have loads of Halloween fun at Storybook Lane! Your child’s favourite storybook and fairytale characters are lost in the Storybook Lane! Trek through the Lane to meet and search for the charming characters!
