Voted Denver’s favorite corn maze, the rural fall event opens September 28

On Friday, September 28, 2018, Maize in the City (MITC), voted Denver’s favorite corn maze, will open for the 2018 season. Built into a 40-acre corn field, MITC is a convenient, fun, rural fall event the whole family can enjoy only 15 minutes from downtown Denver at 10451 McKay Road, Thornton, Colorado.

A family operation, MITC features a number of attractions including free attractions.

Get lost in your own backyard as you navigate your way through the 20-acre Crazed Corn Field Maze with the help of the customizable smartphone trivia game. Let the little ones take the lead as you make your way through the Mini Maze — a maze cut into a shorter corn stalk field.

Have your little ones ride through the field on the barrel train, race through the obstacle bouncer, and visit and feed animals in the petting zoo.

Swim through the free corn kernel box as the all-new corn kernel waterfall pours over or have your kiddos take a turn conquering the playground.

Said Gina Palombo-Dinkel, Maize in the City co-owner:

“Each year we work to add new and exciting attractions for families to enjoy on our site. This year, we hope to give the ultimate bounce experience on our giant, more than 70-person pumpkin bounce pillow. We also challenge our visitors to hit the targets as they launch ears of corn 50+ feet across the field.”
