This is an aerial shot of the maze. As you can see it is huge. Scattered throughout the maze are signs with different letters and different space facts. Luckily, you are given a map to help you collect the facts. Trevor and Ry did a great job of helping us figure out the best routes to take. Andrew and Ethan had a bunch of fun running all over the place exploring, but mainly just chasing each other.I did manage to get a group shot of everyone at a sign within the maze. Andrew is standing behind Ryan. I told him I could not see him and ...he answered, "that's the point!" Such a cooperative child.
The maze was spectacular, but we really loved all the activities waiting for us when we finished it. First we played on the hay-bale maze. It soon became their favorite activity at the Fall Festival.
They didn't actually run through the maze part of the hay-bale maze. Just played on the tops of the walls.They played tag as they jumped and ran around.Then we went over to the corn pool. Of course, this became their favorite activity at the Fall Festival. It was our first time in a pool of corn. The corn was surprisingly soothing. They played king of the mountain and they had fun burying each other. Everyone had a chance to be buried.
Seriously, who needs water when you can play in a pool of corn? The above picture is just one end of the pool, it was huge. While at the corn pool, we bumped into the Deans. This is another family we met when we first moved to Minnesota. What a fun surprise!
After the corn pool, we went over to the giant pillows.
They were two giant inflatable "pillows" that everyone got to jump on. You guessed it, this soon became the kids' favorite activity at the Fall Festival (do you see a pattern?).The game of tag continued on the pillows.
Other highlights include....launching pumpkins (not pictured), the camel rides,The giant slideand the pig races. We went through this rotation a few times before calling it a day. If you have the time, I highly recommend taking your family here (and this is NOT even a sponsored post...I really recommend it). But, if you go, can we come too?
