LEHI, Utah — September 2019 — There’s a bit of intrique and mystery in the air at Utah’s original corn maze, as Cornbelly’s Corn Maze & Pumpkin Fest prepares opens at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi for its 24th season. Paying tribute to Harry Potter with a magical, new “World of Wizards” maze design, there is also a bit of mystery regarding whether or not this might be Cornbelly’s last season at Thanksgiving Point.
"No doubt, there’s intrigue surrounding us this year,” said Brett Herbst, maze creator. “Rumors have circled for some time that this might be our last year here in Lehi. While it does appear change is somewhere on the horizon, rest assured we’ll be remaining at Thanksgiving Point as long as we can and that Cornbelly’s is here to stay in Utah County. When the time comes that our location at Thanksgiving Point is no longer available, we’ll move to our home farm in Spanish Fork. For now, we are focused on making this fall at Thanksgiving Point our most magical season yet.”
Complimenting this year’s World of Wizards maze design will be a number of themed festivities Harry Potter fans will likely recognize, including: wizard meet & greets, special photo opps & costume contests, new food items like “belly butter beer”, a special fireworks presentation and much more.
In addition, visitors can also enjoy Insanity Point haunted attractions, a pumpkin courtyard and more than 50 other fall attractions. There are more than 10 new additions this year, including: Grannie’s Gravity House, honeybee and parakeet exhibits, the Sea Lion Splash show and more. Cornbelly’s will operate Sept. 27 – Nov. 2 from 4-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 10 a.m. to midnight on Friday, Saturday and fall break days. It is closed Sundays and October 31.
