Sixth year in a row Denver Downs makes the list

ANDERSON, SC (August 15, 2022) – For the sixth year in a row, the massive corn maze at Denver Downs Farms in Anderson, SC has been nominated for USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest. The family-owned and operated farms was selected from an expert panel as a Top 20 Corn Maze in the nation, beating out 500 other mazes in the country.

Voting takes place to narrow the top 20 list to 10 corn mazes beginiing today until September 12th:

“We are only one of four mazes featured in the Southeast and are just thrilled to be in the running once again for one of the top corn mazes in the country,” said Catherine Garrison, Co-Owner of Denver Downs. “Our corn maze is one of our most popular attractions at Denver Downs, which says a lot given that we have more than three dozen activities for families to enjoy during our big fall festival.”

The 10-acre maze has a design theme every year and this season the design will be a giant pumpkin. Visitors will have fun finding their way through this labyrinth, while learning facts about pumpkins with information posted throughout the maze.

Denver Downs Farms has made the Top 10 Best Corn Mazes in the country list four times, 2016, 2018, 2019, and 2021. Once voting has narrowed down from the top 20 list to the top 10, USAToday will announce to readers the top 10 corn mazes in the country.

“We are hoping to make that top 10 list again in 2022 and have been so honored to be a part of this competition for the past six years,” said Garrison.

Readers’ Digest Magazine and Southern Living Magazine both have Denver Downs’ Pumpkin Patch ranked as the best in SC. In addition to the 10-acre corn maze to navigate, there are 36 fun barnyard activities and Denver Downs will have over 25 tons of pumpkins this season. New activities to Denver Downs this Fall are the Double Jumping Pillow Park, New Jumbo Cow Train, New Kiddie Corral, and the NEW Giant Mountain Slide.
