Cornbelly’s maze creator Brett Herbst has designed more than 2,500 corn mazes, including this yellow brick road beauty.

When Halloween season rolls around — there’s no place like Cornbelly’s! The popular corn maze is in its 19th season and this year’s design pays tribute to the 75th anniversary of “The Wizard of Oz.”

“This year we wanted to let Utahns help us to choose the design of our corn maze,” said Brett Herbst, maze creator. “We gave them several options to choose from and the response was overwhelmingly in favor of ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ Whether you’re young or old, this movie is a beloved classic and we’re excited to help honor it’s 75th anniversary.”

In addition to the maze, guests can pick from more than 40 attractions including pig races, super-size pumpkin blasters, pumpkin princess play land, Insanity Point haunts, inflatables, a climbing wall and more. Live Wizard of Oz characters will also be roaming the grounds at Thanksgiving Point.

Cornbelly’s officially opens Friday, Oct. 3 and runs through Saturday, Nov. 1 from 4-9 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 10 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday through Saturday. Admission starts at $9.95.
