Southern Idaho’s corn mazes and pumpkin patches offer the best of fall fun — outdoors, glorious colors, and even a fright or two. These all-ages venues have something for every member of the family: Almost every venue features age-appropriate activities, from jump houses for the little ones to terrifying haunted mazes for teenagers and grown-ups. Be sure to check websites before going; opening times can vary from day to day.
The Burley Straw Maze and Pumpkin Patch features 8-foot walls, a “haunted maze” experience on the weekends, and jump houses, you-pick houses, and train rides for the kids. If finding the perfect pumpkin is your goal this season, head to Christensen Family Farms. Their main attraction is simple: Thousands of big, round future jack-o-lanterns. 500 S. 845 E., Burley.

Tubbs Berry Farm includes some special additions in October: a big straw bale maze, straw slides, a pumpkin patch, and a playground for kids. Head to the farm early in the month to catch the Pollinator Walk Sunflower Maze, a simple maze cut through tall sunflowers and beautiful pollinator plants. Don’t forget to hit the farm stand for raw honey, jams, soaps, lip balms, and more. 1150 South Park Ave. W., Twin Falls.
