Getting lost in a corn maze is one of the most fun things you can do with your family in the fall. Mann Orchard's Riverside Farm Corn Maze is now open!

I love summer, I really do. I love the warm weather, the beach, the relaxed schedule – all of it.  But do you know what I love more than summer? FALL. How can you beat pumpkin flavored everything, chunky sweaters,  hayrides and corn mazes?  And speaking of corn mazes, did you know that the very first corn maze is now open in Methuen?

Mann Orchard’s Riverside Farm is home to an 7-acre corn maze, which is the main attraction of their Riverside Farm location.  Once this South Shore girl figured out where Methuen was, we headed up there for a day of fun this past weekend. You see, there is much, much more than just a corn maze at Mann Orchard’s Riverside Farm and you definitely need to plan to stay for a while once you’re there.

Corn Maze
If you like a good challenge, then you definitely want to head to the corn maze at Mann Orchard’s Riverside Farm.  It’s just challenging enough, but not so bad that you will be lost in there for days.  It’s a great way to bond with the family and have a blast while you’re doing it.

Going for a hayride is such a fun fall tradition that the whole family can really enjoy. Enjoy the cooler air while you sit back on the tractor and see what life is like on the farm!

I also wanted to mention that they have special Flash Light Nights at Mann’s. You can make your way through Mann’ Maze during the evening every Friday and Saturday starting September 22 from 6pm-10pm. It’s $14 per person and you need to bring your own flashlight (or you can buy one at the farm). It sounds like fun and I am going to try to get back for one of the flash light nights later this season.

See why I said that you should plan to spend the day there? There is so much to see and do at Mann’s Riverside Farm and you won’t want to miss any of it. Here’s everything you need to know before you visit:
