One of the Lower Mainland’s most popular fall attractions has announced its return for 2020.

Abbotsford’s Maan Farms will be bringing back its Haunted Corn Maze starting September 25.

Dubbed “Canada’s scariest corn maze,” the experience takes place over five-acres on the farm featuring terrifying installations, live actors, real chainsaws, and excerpts from classic horror movies.

This year’s theme focuses on an abandoned testing facility beneath the farm and a young man named Thomas who decides to explore the myth and finds terrifying creatures trapped within.

“Each scene will have its own challenge that you must conquer in order to make it out alive of the scariest corn maze in Canada,” says Maan Farms. “Each haunted corn maze customer will be taking on the role of Thomas.”

Maan Farms has also added a number of health and safety measures for this year’s festivities in order to keep actors, staff, and participants safe.

“This year’s Haunted Corn Maze will be the most fun and the safest haunted experience ever,” says Maan Farms. “Working closely with Fraser Health, we have figured out how to keep everyone safe and elevate the experience like never before.”

Measures include mandatory masks for all staff and guests, enhanced cleaning and sanitizing, hand washing and sanitization stations around the venue, and contactless temperature screenings for all staff and guests.

Capacity has also been reduced to between 25% and 50% of usual numbers and a reservation system is being used for tickets. Maan Farms notes that thanks to the reduced capacity, visitors will likely enjoy “a more intimate and immersive experience.”

Tickets for the Haunted Corn Maze go on sale starting Tuesday, September 15 at 9 am, and will only be sold in groups of four, five, or six.

“This allows us to control flow and social distancing,” says the organizers at Maan Farms. “It also allows you to book well in advance with your COVID-19 bubble.”

150 discounted early-bird tickets will be made available, priced at $35 a person. On September 16, prices will increase to $42 per person. All tickets will need to be purchased online, as ticket sales will not take place at the door.

Maan Farms adds that due to the reduced capacity, they’re confident that tickets will sell out well in advance.

“It will be intense, it will be scary, but most importantly, it will be safe.”
