Marini Farm Arabian Nights Corn Maze

The 2018 Marini Farm Corn Maze in Ipswich Massachusetts is Arabian Nights themed!

The 2018 Marini Farm Corn Maze is Arabian Nights themed this year! This is not your typical corn maze; it is both educational and interactive. There are over 18 stations strategically placed throughout the maze with answers to a game sheet that you will be given before entering.We don't give you clues...you need to find your way out on your own!  You will be able to track your progress through the maze by the amount of answers you find on your game sheet. A finished game sheet is a finished maze!  Average time to complete the corn maze is 1.5 hours — so put on your sturdy shoes or sneakers and come enjoy the experience!  For our youngest adventurers, we also have a 1 acre/20 minute "mini maze".
