Fritz Corn Maze
Enjoy spooky fall and Halloween fun. The Fritz Corn Maze in Kalispell has plenty of fall and Halloween activities to keep you busy for hours. Each year the maze is cut in a different pattern, and a new theme is created for the scavenger hunt you can participate in while finding your way out. “Moove” over when you see the cow train coming across the open field or take a ride yourself. Kids and adults alike will love the massive culvert slides, and there is a hay bale maze fit for our younger guests, as well as a bounce house. Bring your own picnic to enjoy at the picnic tables! For those looking to enjoy the spookier side of Fritz, come back select nights up to Halloween and explore the haunted trail and barn. Zombies, gorillas, chainsaw crazy people wielding chainsaws, spiders, ghosts, and other things that go bump in the night are around every corner to spook you. As a cap, enter the Tunnels of Terror – if you dare!

Now through Halloween, you can stop by the pumpkin patch and farm in nearby Kalispell for some fall and Halloween fun. Kids and families will love attractions like the bumblebee barrel train, tricycle or pedal cart tracks, apple cannon, giant sandbox, petting zoo, and giant jumping pillows. Stop by the Duck Dynasty water feature, the “party barns,” the mercantile, and more for flavorful fall treats – including their famous kettle corn!
