The fall is by far one of the best seasons to visit Conner Prairie. Throughout the month of October, the park will feature many different fall-themed attractions including a giant corn maze, sunflower field, and hayrides.
The Conner Prairie corn maze is a 22,160-foot maze that features three unique adventure paths each designed for different age groups. At night, the maze turns into a haunted attraction that is a part of the Headless Horseman Festival.
The park also offers a truly unique Balloon Voyage for a bird's eye view of the surrounding area. The balloon is one of only four tethered helium balloons in the country and is the only one in the world to put balloon flight into a historical context. Another amazing way to see the fall foliage, tickets cost $18 for adults and $10 for children.
