Awesome corn maze! Fun for the whole family. The coupon hunt through the maze is really cute. I like the Chevy coupon, test drive a car and get a $25 walmart gift card! Only $7.50 for adults with group discount we got. Highly recommended!

Had the best experience here- loved the corn maze with the local business coupons to punch at different checkpoints- great incentive to navigate with intention! We also enjoyed collecting pumpkins from the maze and loved the food too! What an awesome place!

Great place for a fall family adventure! Fun activities for adults and children of all ages. Pumpkin patch, corn maze, fire pits, wagon rides, concessions, and loads of other fun activities! We go every year. Wouldn't miss it!
