Located about 45 minutes away in LaSalle this is one of Northern Colorado’s largest corn mazes and has a number of other attractions for the whole family. The maze itself has two parts, a regular corn maze, and a haunted “Scream Acres”. Not into mazes? Pick from a vast array of pumpkins (sold by the pound), decorative gourds, straw and corn stalks and stay for the long-standing Fritzler tradition of corn maze campfires, open every night of the maze! Roast some hot dogs and s’mores or just tell some scary stories. Campfires cost $39.95 for 2 hours or $59.95 for 4 hours and wood is provided.
A perfect mix of corn maze and haunted house, if there is one thing we’d recommend to get your fill of scares this Halloween it’s Scream Acres. You can also try their Zombie Paintball Slayer, where you ride a “Zombie Proof” school bus through fields of corn loaded with targets, props, and of course, zombies. They also have a Ghost Haunt – an abandoned ghost town filled with spooks and scares.
Fritzler’s offers some less scary fun for the whole family as well, from the less scary corn maze to pig races, huge pumpkin patch, a huge Jumping Pillow, Spider Web, Slide Mountain, Hay Climb, Verti-Scope and carnival themed Ball Zone.

Located a little east of I-25, this corn maze is a little closer to Fort Collins. It is one maze that switches from a regular corn maze during the day to a haunted maze a night (usually around 7) and usually better for the younger kids.

They have a large pumpkin patch where the kids can pick their own pumpkins, and a large stand offering any other seasonal decorations needed. Northern Colorado Corn Maze has a number of family fun activities as well, including a large inflatable jumpy castle, petting zoo, corn chuckers, and pedal car racers!
