This past weekend my seven year old son and I headed out to Harvest Moon Acres for our annual visit for fall family fun. We were looking forward to our visit and had a great day to explore all of the activities at Harvest Moon Acres. My son loved the great activities, especially the family friendly corn maze. We made a fun afternoon of doing all of the activities at least twice!
What you’ll find:
- Pumpkin slingshots
- 40 ft. long hay bale slide
- Kid-sized zip-lines
- Life-sized barnyard board game
- Lil’ corn maze (shorter corn maze)
- 5-acre corn maze
- Petting zoo
- Indoor fun barn
- Pumpkins and fall decor
What’s New This Year
Splashing its way onto the farm this fall is the new “Quakie’s Showdown” duck race attraction. Also new this fall, the popular pumpkin slingshot receives a western transformation. A must-see-to-believe western town presents shooters with themed targets. This was definitely one of my son’s favorite activities! I think he did this activity five times.
5-Acre Corn Maze
You’ll want to check out the Wild West themed 5-acre corn maze. Your family will want to allocate at least 45 minutes to do the entire corn maze. We loved that there were some activities to do while in the corn maze. When you enter Harvest Moon Acres they will give you a sheet that will have some of the activities to do that are incorporated into the corn maze. While we didn’t find all of the objects in the corn maze, we did find out way out the corn maze. Fun!
Pumpkin Patch Palooza
There will be a few special events happening at Harvest Moon Acres this season. Join the fun at the Pumpkin Patch Palooza for a 1-mile fun run on October 3. Proceeds go to families of children with special needs. Fee is paid at entrance of the park and includes park entrance fee.
All Treats, No Tricks
The fall season will end with a bang at Harvest Moon Acres as they present their second Halloween trick or treating, maze-style on October 31. Wander through the ghoul-less, family friendly maze and find not only seven stations used to play the maze game, but also some very friendly Halloween treats. Nighttime hayrides are included with admission. This will be a perfect Halloween outing for families, older trick-or-treaters, and those looking to acquire a few more full-sized candies for their bags.
