Pumpkin Patches, Corn Mazes, Oh My!

We went to  Flat Acres Farms in Parker, CO to enjoy some Fall Festivities like the corn maze, pumpkin patch, and the hay ride.  BUT, we got a lot more than what we thought we would when we arrived!

Of course we took our annual corn maze photos … for what it’s worth.  Lovely having cooperative children, isn’t it…

There was a petting zoo, a couple of jump houses for the kids, a duck race…

We REALLY enjoyed the Pumpkin Shoot!  They have these great ‘potato guns’ that shoot tennis balls!  Pumpkin cut outs are the targets!  SOOOOOO FUN!

There are 3 corn mazes at this farm!  One is the regular family friendly corn maze.  Then there are 2 ‘haunted’ corn mazes.  Okay, this is cool … Mike, the owner, lets the Boy Scouts set this one pictured below up and they fundraise with proceeds from this maze!  The other haunted corn maze is designed by a PROFESSIONAL ‘haunted maze/house’ man.  I didn’t know there was such a profession, but it’s obvious now that I’ve seen it!  How cool is this place and it is right near us!

This is something we haven’t seen before, a maze for little people!  What a great idea.  This place was so family friendly!

I loved the day and loved this view from the edge of the corn maze

Of course, going to the pumpkin patch wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t get a family photo…

I hope you have a chance to go to Flat Acres Farms if you’re in the area.  It was super convenient and a lot of fun.  Oh, and I didn’t cover ALL of the action at this place!  You’ll certainly spend an afternoon or morning there for sure.

There is a HUGE corn maze that is friendly for the WHOLE family daily til 6pm.

Then there’s Ears of Fear”
