CRESTVIEW — North Okaloosa residents can now visit the Murder Creek Cornfield Maze until 10 p.m. The fall-themed course, which opened Oct. 6, has extended its hours.

The cornfield maze will be open on Saturday and Sunday (Oct. 27 and 28) and Oct. 31 from noon to 10 p.m. The maze will also be open on the same hours on Nov. 3 and 4.

The Murder Creek Cornfield Maze and Spooky Woods are north of Crestview off U.S. Highway 85. Take a left on Senterfitt Road and another left on Jack Road. The maze will be on the right.

Tickets cost $6 for adults 18 and up. Tickets cost $5 for 5- to 17-year-olds. Children 4 and under get in free.

In addition, visitors can pass through “Spooky Woods,” which feature wolf howls, mechanical jumping spiders and spider web tunnels.

The attractions were memorable enough for some visitors to come back.

“This is our second time coming out here,” Jennifer Bradley said on Saturday. “It’s something fun for the kids to do.” Bradley and her daughter, Jordan, 9, invited Wendy McGowan and her three children to come. Jordan served as a guide while the group meandered through the maze. Although they hit a few dead ends in the cornfield, they eventually made their way into the spooky woods, Jordan’s favorite part.
