Enjoy 6 weekends (Thu-Sun) Sept 22 - Oct 30 jam-packed with activities, music, food, and fun for the whole family. Hayrides to a 10-acre pumpkin patch, make your way through a mind boggling 5 acre corn maze, and visit with Sinkland's farm animals. We feature Ride-a-Rescue horseback trail rides, pony rides, a huge kid’s zone with a barrel train ride, giant slide, kids zip line and many games.
