Lawyer’s Moonlight Maze – Thurmont, Maryland
Lawyer’s Moonlight Maze in Thurmont, Maryland
One of our fall family traditions is to go to our local corn maze. Every year we pile our kids, flashlights and crummy shoes into our car and head to Lawyer’s Moonlight Maze in Thurmont, Maryland for a little cornfield fun. Now that our kids have gotten older, they like to pair off into teams and compete against each other to see who can find the most check points in the least amount of time. It has become such a highlight of the season for our kids that some of their friends now join us every year!
Lawyer’s is a family run business and is very family friendly. Though the maze itself might be a bit trying for very young children, there are other activities suited to children of all ages. Because of the terrain in the cornfield itself, especially if it rains, I wouldn’t say it’s easily stroller or wheelchair accessible. Admission is $7.00 per person and children 5 and under are free. They now also accept credit cards and there is plenty of free onsite parking. They are open from September 13 through November 3, 2013 on Fridays from 5-10pm, Saturdays 12-10pm and Sundays 12-5pm. Your furry pal is allowed to help you find your way through the maze as long as he is on a leash and you clean up after him.
Every year the maze is a different theme with this years theme being the Battle of Gettysburg. There are several mazes of varying lengths, the shortest being .3 miles and the longest 2 miles. After paying, the attendant gives each person a laminated map to follow to each check point. At each check point, there is a punch to punch your card (this is how our kids keep track and declare a winner). Lawyer’s offers more than just the maze, too! They have a concession stand, pumpkin cannon, outdoor movie playing (this year is Iron Man III) and even a little train. Forgot your flashlight? No worries! Lawyer’s has you covered for $3 per flashlight. The giant tepee and bonfire are probably my favorite part. It’s a great place to warm up while I wait for my children of the corn to finish up.
Lawyer’s Moonlight Maze in Thurmont, Maryland offers family (and pet) friendly fun for everyone! It may just become a fall highlight for your family as well! For more information, check out their website at www.LawyersMoonlightMaze.com
