Fall Corn Mazes and Pumpkin Patches You Must Visit in Arkansas
October is almost here and that means Fall festivals, fairs, pumpkin patches, and corn mazes.
There's just something special about this time of the year, maybe it's the cool crisp air or maybe it's watching the leaves change color as they fall from the trees. I'm sure everyone has some type of memory that takes them back to their childhood days during this time of the year. It's no secret that Arkansas has some of the best places to enjoy the fall season whether it be a scenic drive, attending a fall festival, visiting a pumpkin patch, or getting lost in a corn maze.
There are several corn mazes throughout the state but these are two of my favorites they have a little bit of everything and are highly rated by national publications and media sources. These two farms may take a while to get there depending on where you live but they are both worth the drive for some great family fun.
Located in Northwest Arkansas Farmland Adventures features a 9-acre Giant Corn Maze, pumpkin patch, pony rides, farm animals, and a kid's play area. The corn maze is a fun and interactive game full of twists and turns that will challenge you every step of the way.
This year's theme is Space Exploration where you will learn about our solar system and space program. In fact, the maze will feature a space shuttle and an outer space scene. In addition, you will love the old-fashioned wagon rides, pig races, pedal carts, pony rides, a petting farm, and other attractions.
