Your Outdoor Place
With acres of fresh country air, the Treinen Farm is a great place to enjoy in 2020. Try our 15 acre corn maze, 1/2 acre children's maze, adventure slides, tractor tire playground, natural play areas, and hiking and wilderness exploration area. Bring a picnic, meet the goats, and see our draft horses. There's a lot of outdoors to enjoy for little ones as well as older kids and adults.
The Water Bear Maze is 15 acres (that's almost 15 football fields of diabolically twisty trails in 10 foot high corn!) Try it in the dark if you're brave enough..
We have 14 acres of pumpkins for you to explore as you look for that perfect pumpkin. Bring your camera!…

The Treinen corn maze is one of my favorite fall traditions. I have made a special trip every year over the last seven years (even after I moved from Madison to Milwaukee) just to complete the new maze and see what cool pattern they have dreamed up. I love that they have a variety of difficulties starting with the kids maze and ramping up to the hidden hole punches in the larger maze. We always try to find all the hole punches and if we have a large enough group split up into teams and race! The only downside is it can get really muddy if it's been a rainy week so wear shoes you don't mind getting dirty!
They also usually have a variety of snacks and I always look forward to their apple cider donuts. The pumpkin selection has usually been good but obviously depends on how far into the season it is.
This year they have added time windows and require signing up in advance to limit the number of people at a time. They also have some areas where they require masks and I felt like people were respecting the rules fairly well. They also added a little hike to an overlook that was cool. I liked getting to see the maze from above and get a glimpse of some fall foliage (although we were a bit after peak time).
It's a beautiful weekend trip for families and friends. Lots of signs about masks and social distancing yet enforcement is non-existant. Large groups of adults allowed to use all facilities without masks.
This is a must if you are in the dells in the fall. Horse drawn hay ride to the pumpkin patch, unlimited pumpkins to choose from, animal farm, kids playgrounds - you can easily spend the day here. Arrive early and have fun!
Went to the corn maze at night. It was delightfully spooky. Since we were there later, our group could not do many of the other activities(a shame, since they would have loved it) but they didn't seem to mind much.
I felt every fall feel while visiting this place. It has everything! The maze was super fun, the pumpkin patch still had great choices even after visiting so late in the season, and the farm had a lot of activities for kids and adults! I went with a good sized group of 20-something year olds, and we ALL found some major fun in the experience. It's definitely not just meant for families and small children. I loved the maze, the activities, and the memories made at this farm. I'll definitely be returning next year!
The Corn Maze is a spectacular accomplishment every year. You start out with a map that is blank except for one-eighth of an aerial view of the maze. Using this start point, you have to search through the maze for the remaining octants of the map. They give you a little trinket if you succeed in completing the map while also finding eight different hole punches scattered throughout.
If that sounds a little too challenging for you and your newborn/toddler, they also have a cool kid's version of the corn maze. A very cool place for people all ages. I would make sure to bundle up!
While they do have light refreshments, I would plan ahead if brats, donuts, and powdered apple cider are not your scene.
I love fall things and wanted to check out a real pumpkin patch.
Pros: - They give you an option of only paying for activities that you are interested in. I wanted the pumpkin patch and hay ride but not the corn maze. - Baby animal zoo always great for me. Pigs were hilariously active and horses got involved too. - lots of activities for the kids. Slides, sand boxes, and corn boxes. - Hayride was pretty authentic - Parking very easy and free
Cons: - While there wasn't a long line for the outbound hay ride, the line to return from the pumpkin patch looked very long. We ended walking back, which was a really good idea. - sort of small. Based on what you we saw advertised, it looked huge, but it was easy to cover the entire thing in less than 1.5 hours (again, we didn't do the corn maze, so that would add a lot more time) - limited food options - sufficient, but nothing too exciting.
Probably would go back, but compared to other pumpkin patches closer to Chicago (see Goebberts or Bengstens), it is a little smaller.
This place is so fun! Came for the Zompocalypse, which initially sounded like my worst nightmare. Not too keen on anything remotely scary, so the thought of people jumping out at me was really making me nervous.
We arrived after dark and there was plenty of parking (we lucked out, too -- got a great spot right in front of the tunnel leading into the farm!). There weren't any lines, so we were able to pay ($10 for entry) and move in. Once inside, however, it was a bit confusing trying to find the maze. There was food for sale (tater tots! apple cider! hot chocolate!) and an area where staff explained what we needed to do (complete the map, get as many hole punches as possible, all without opening the key for clues). We were promised multiple Tootsie Rolls as reward! I ambitiously wanted to go around all of the grapes (this year's maze depicts the fable The Fox and the Grapes), but that motivation quickly disappeared.
Once we got in, there were zombies gathered toward the front and they were hissing and staring, but... it wasn't scary at all! There were soooo many people in there, you could always hear people walking around. We got pretty confused at first, but thankfully we made it through (and with four hole punches!). One friend decided it was her mission to scare the zombies, with hilarious results.
When we got out, there were people milling around by the campfires and some dance music playing. There was also a human-sized Jenga set that provided entertainment. All in all, pretty fun!
Warning: it does get pretty muddy, so wear appropriate footwear!
"Not all those who wander are lost." J.R.R. Tolkien
Been coming here every year since 2006 for "Wisconsin's Largest Maze." Sometimes in the middle of fall, it does you good to wander and inhale life. That's why I love a good corn maze. The detail and size of this maze is what really brings me back. The farmer asks customers what ideas they have for the next years' maze, his wife creates a design, he figures out how to map it, then the whole family cuts the paths. It sounds so simple, but then you get there and see the aerial photo! And then you walk the maze! This is NOT a labyrinth style, so you WILL get out alive. They make it more "game" style by giving you one piece of the map at a time. Like a puzzle, X marks the spot, actually it's a "star," where you find the next piece, and so on, until you exit the maze. This is fine for large groups who are racing around, or people who just want to see the maze and get out. Some people just walk and accident upon the map pieces. I prefer the "extra" game: finding the hidden hole punches, not on the map. It's like a "secret" between the "real" maze runners. Once we find that elusive punch, we smile and quickly, quietly punch our paper, gently replace the punch WITHOUT letting it clang around for anyone to hear, and silently escape the area without being seen, or perhaps a mis-direction for any passersby ("nothing over here"). Some of us give a secretive smile to each other, like a clandestine handshake. The prize for 4 punches is only a picture of this year's maze and a piece of candy, but the hallowed 10+ punch gets a maze pen, frisbee, and the accomplishment that "YES! I did it!" It takes about 45 min to run through the maze, and 2 hours to look for all the punches. There is also a smaller corn maze for the younger kiddos.
The other nice part of the farm is the old-style horse drawn carriage ride to the pumpkin patch. It's maybe a 1/2 mile ride, but it's always nice. And I'm not sure what other people are writing about: I don't need a 30-acre pumpkin patch, I just need a good pumpkin patch to pick out "the GREAT Pumpkin," ala "Charlie Brown." "Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He's gotta pick this one. He's got to!" - Linus. Well, this is the one for me. I've been coming 10 yrs now, and only one of those years, the wet summer of 2010, the pumpkins were all smushy, but that was a hard year on ALL pumpkins everywhere.
Other items: every year there is a new addition to the "kids" area. It's really getting big. This year I noticed pony rides! They have a 40 ft slide, tire mound playground with tunnels/crawl space, games: slingshot a pumpkin, rope a plastic cow, Jacob's ladder, and some inside the barn walk through (I haven't been inside). There's also a little hot dog truck (local Kiwanis club type stuff) and kettle corn vendor, with a picnic area. The farm sells APPLE CIDER DONUTS and their MAZE design T-SHIRTS! Also, hot chocolate, cider, popcorn (little bags), candy bars, jams, relishes, water, pepsi products, fall squashes, mini pumpkins, and pumpkin decorating supplies.
Maybe Chicago area has more Disneyland-gimmick farms at lower rates with great parking lots and manicured lawns, but this is an authentic farm and farmer, who has his family out helping bring fall fun to your family. Prices did go up this year, and I really wish the prize for finding the hole punches was just a free little bag of popcorn again, but I just dare anyone to try NOT to look for those hole punches. It's addictive once you find one.
Get lost in the maze, stay for the donuts, and find your "Great Pumpkin."
One of my favorite places in ALL of Wisconsin. Hands down. If I could give this place a million stars, I would.
I have done the corn maze at Treinen farm almost every year since I was a sophomore in high school (although I've yet to do it this year, I'll get to it). It's always a blast. I consider it a chance to meet up with old friends from back home and kick off a great night.
The corn maze itself is always challenging, especially if you seek out the hidden hole punches in addition to the map pieces. I like to think I have a good sense of direction, but it's difficult not to get lost. Personally, as an extra challenge I like to run in blindly and try to get my barings after walking around for 10 minutes or so.
Bring a flashlight, because once it gets dark it's extremely difficult to read the map and stuff. You can rent a flashlight from the counter where you pay if you forget. Trust me here, the light on your phone isn't going to cut it.
The folks that run this place are really awesome, too. You can tell they're committed to running a fun, safe place for people of any age to have a night to just have fun and enjoy themselves together. An extra bonus: I know they've done events here to benefit children with autism in the past.
Around Halloween they do a zombie themed night on the farm. The real draw, of course, is the zombies running around in the maze. That night is a ton of fun and it adds a whole different element to the experience. I really recommend it. At this point, zombies are a bit kitsch and passé, but if you can't look past that at Halloween you're taking things way too seriously.
Good times in the fall with good friends, made possible by good people. Perfect.
I came with a group of adult friends to do the corn maze. We split into 2 groups and raced to see who could complete their map and find the most hole punches which are hidden within the maze. It was pretty fun.
This place has lots of fun stuff to do. It seems like it would be a cool place to take kids for endless entertainment.
I cannot say enough about how much I love this place. My family and I go out each year (often more than once) to make our way through the corn maze. It is a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy from the little all the way to the big! We often stay afterwards for the yummy food and bonfire. The staff is always friendly and it isn't too far to drive from Madison. When the kids were smaller we would go during the day and the scenery can't be beat. Now that they are grown we like to go at night. It makes the maze harder and adds a creepy element. I have three out of the house and one still at home. It is one of those things they ask about even now that they are grown. This place is a treasure that I always tell my friends about.
The wife and I spent a gorgeous Sunday afternoon in October at Treinen Farm picking pumpkins and drinking apple cider. After getting lost for about 20 minutes because the farm's address is not registered in TomTom, and because there are NO SIGNS ANYWHERE to direct people to the farm, we finally found the place. (FYI: To get to the farm using your GPS, enter coordinates N 43° 18.246, W 89° 36.971).
Parking is free -- woohoo -- and is across the street, but have no fear! To get from the parking lot to the farm, you walk through an under-the-road tunnel, straight to the admission shack. $8.50 for admission and maze, $8.50 for admission, hayride, and pumpkin, or $15.75 for admission, maze, hayride, and pumpkin patch. They offer other "fun" stuff like pumpkin slingshot, "Jacob's ladder," and gemstone mining, but we were interested in only one thing: finding the perfect pumpkin.
Treinen's hayrides to the pumpkin patch are authentic, with the wagon being pulled by teams of 2 horses, but they are very short rides and the wait to get on a wagon was surprisingly long (nearly 30 minutes). The pumpkin patch was surprisingly small compared to other pumpkin patches we've gone to, and this size deficiency stood in stark contrast to the farm's advertised "largest corn maze in Wisconsin" claims. That being said, we were both able to find fantastic pumpkins, even though we were there on a Sunday afternoon the weekend before Halloween and had, therefore, expected all of the good ones to be gone already.
The kettle corn being sold on-site was fantastic, the apple cider donuts were AMAZING, and the hot apple cider float was actually quite good.
Overall, I give Treinen Farm an "A-OK." We had a very fun time, but thought it was a slightly pricey and small for what we wanted -- a big, ol'-fashioned hayride and pumpkin patch.
Came here with a group of friends for their Zombiepocalypse corn maze event. They have a good parking lot setup with a tunnel that goes under the main road so you don't have to play human frogger in the dark. They have Square readers so you can pay with credit card for admission. There were fire pits scattered around the main area so you could warm up. They had a DJ (?) playing loud top 40 hits and it felt like a high school barn party (not in a good way). The corn maze was pretty challenging at the beginning because all the zombies were camping out there trying to scare people, but once you got past the second mailbox it was pretty easy. There were the usual people being dicks and not following any of the posted rules, so that was annoying. I thought that doing the maze in the dark with zombies following you around would be scary, but it wasn't. Still had fun solving the maze in the dark though. I'd bring a headlamp next time.
Early season means that not quite everything is in full swing at the Treinen Farm and corn maze, but it was still a blast to do on a sunny & brisk September afternoon. The fiance and I took our chances in the maze and filled up our map with all the pieces in about 35 minutes (we didn't really take the time to look for the punches as the sky was threatening rain). A small flock of turkey toms were wandering about the yard and there were lots of fun things for kids to do. Later in the season hayrides, popcorn, pumpkins, etc. will be offered and I'm hoping to return with the little people in my life because it was just great fun!
Pretty neat place, the weather was great today so I guess we should have expected it would be PACKED. Greater than an hour wait in line for the horse drawn wagon ride to the pumpkin patch, activities were all very busy. Not everything was incl in the wristband we got- Jacob's ladder, bounce house, etc. were an extra dollar here, dollar there x three kids and the price was $8.50 to start (Incl pumpkin)- I thought it only didn't incl the maze and pumpkin launch, didn't realize there'd be other extras. SO it was an okay experience, not sure we'll do it again though.
