Phillips Corn Maze
From Sarah C.:
We started by wandering to the left to explore the kids' play areas. Ok, maybe I should scratch the word "kids" because even the adults can have fun! There is a corn crib (big boxed space with lots of dried corn kernels to play in), pedal cars to race, corn hole, giant tic tac toe game, bounce house, tube swing, slides (no adults on these), a pumpkin shooter ($1 per shot), a "duck race" (pump water to race plastic ducks down pvc sides), small hay bale maze for the little ones, etc.
When the hayride returned us, we walked over to the corn mazes. Yes, mazes. You have an option between the small or large mazes. The attendant told us the longer one seems to take visitors anywhere from 30-60 minutes. We were up for the challenge and chose the longer.
(My one hint here, go the wrong way on question #5. Along with 4 other groups, we chose the correct answer but it led us to a dead end. Once we went the 'wrong' way, we found checkpoint #6.) Minus our little confusion at checkpoint #5 and a sometimes slow toddler, we successfully found our way out in about 45 minutes.
Phillips also offers the Haunted Farm featuring "Barn of Gore, Field of Screams, The Haunted Hayride and more" on Friday and Saturday nights through October 31. Tickets are $15 for ages 10 & older and $10 for under age 10 but due note that it is not recommended for children under 10 years. If you have younger children, perhaps hire a sitter and try as a date night ... if you dare. ;)
