Wild West Corn Maze in Hudson: Tractor Rides, Rabbit Catch, Flying Pumpkins & Fun!
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a . . . pumpkin!
Flying pumpkins are just one of the many unique things you can see and do at the Wild West Corn Maze in Hudson (located about 30 minutes northeast of the Denver Metro Area). The annual Fall on the Farm Festival is underway, with attractions to entertain kids of all ages. The Wild West Maze offers both a general admission ticket and an unlimited activities ticket.
The cost of general admission includes:
*Kids Play Area- includes a giant hay bale pyramid, corn box, hay maze, and pumpkin roping.
*Farm Petting Zoo-old farm favorites, plus some more interesting species (including alpacas and yaks).
*Rabbit Catch- chance to feed and hold an adorable bunny (if you can catch one!).
*Several different family photo areas.
*Pumpkin Launching (watch the 2011 World Champion Punkin Chunkin team in action).
*Pumpkin Corral- find your perfect pumpkin or gourd (for purchase, priced depending on size).
*Corn Maze Obstacle Course.
*Unlimited access to the Cowboys and Aliens Corn Maze, where you can explore and play the Farm Scene Investigation games in 5 different sections.
The Unlimited Activities pass includes all the general admission activities, plus the Scarecrow Golf, Barrel Train, Jumping Pillow and Horsedrawn Wagon Rides.
My kids absolutely loved the giant hay bale pyramid, the enormous jumpy pillow and the obstacle maze- what a great workout! My 3-year-old could have spent all day in the Corn Box (instead of sand, it is filled with dry corn kernels for scooping, sliding down into and building corn castles). We tried out the Farm Scene Investigation game in the maze and although we were unable to solve the mystery of which animal caused the disappearance of Farmer Joe, the kids had fun searching for checkpoints and punching out the clues in their booklets.
The staff was very friendly and patient- there were a lot of people waiting in line for tickets and concessions (the delightfully messy Snowballs were worth the wait). This was a great festival for interacting with animals, enjoying some crisp, autumn air and trying out some very unique activities. The Haunted Maze opens up on Fri. Oct. 19th for the nighttime thrill-seekers.
