Pumpkin Patch - Opens Mid September
Every good Jack-O-Lantern begins as a great pumpkin. Come find yours at the Exploration Acres pumpkin patch!
Sprawling over 10 acres the patch has a variety of pumpkins to choose from and we have plenty of wagons available
so you don’t have to worry about carrying them. They range in weight from 1-100 pounds and are only $.35/pound.
What is a trip to the country without a hayride? Tour the grounds of Exploration Acres aboard a spacious hay wagon
pulled by a shiny new tractor. It is a relaxing way to survey the lay of the land and plan your visit, as well as a means
to reach the corn maze. Shuttles leave regularly to take brave and energetic visitors to maze entrances.
Dive into the simple joys of yesteryear by jumping into the big mound of straw in Exploration Acres’ play area. It is the ultimate experience in good, clean fun.
Straw Bale Tunnel
Challenge Your fears as you crawl through a dark tunnel made of straw bales. Kids as young as two go through the maze
over and over, smiling and laughing the whole time.
There are shovels, buckets and toys to play with in our sand pile. Add some imagination and friends, and every kid will
look like they’ve spent a day working on the farm. Let them get dirty!
Pedal Car Track
Peddling and pumping, legs go round and round, as giggles and sounds of joy abound. This attraction is great fun for all ages. The pedal cars come in a variety of sizes and colors so each competitor can choose the car most compatible with his
or her racing skill and strategy. Everyone is invited to pedal his or her way to victory on this straw bale lined track.
JD Mighty Trikes
“Nothing runs like a Deere” except a toddler. If they’re just learning to pedal and steer, then put them on one of the trikes
and stay clear. The round track is for small children only.
Try our new tractor train! Let your little ones zip around the farm in style. Each tractor car is complete with its own steering wheel, and comes in your child's favorite, bright color.
The tube slide is a “must do” for kids, of all ages. Grab a rope and make your way to the top of the hill. Hop in the tube
and slip and slide forty-five feet to the bottom. You’ll want to do it again, it’s that much fun!
Shelled Corn Bin
Young children can’t resist running their fingers through shelled corn. Once inside, they won’t want to leave the grain bin.
It’s a race to see who can scoop corn the fastest and pour it down the slide.
Our pony swings are perfect for small children. Load them on the saddle and give them a push. Enjoy the giggles and
laughter as they swing and spin.
How fast can you pump water with an old-fashioned hand pump; fast enough to beat your opponent? Each ducky race consists of two hand pumps connected by a waterway with one rubber ducky floating in the track. The object is to be the
first person to push the ducky, using water from your hand-pump, to the other end of the track. Endurance is the name of
the game because your opponent is pumping water right back at you, hoping to push the ducky to your end of the track first.
Pumpkin Race Track
Who said only Cinderella could have a pumpkin with wheels? At Exploration Acres, it’s your turn! Select one of our
pumpkins with a funny face, pick your car color, and watch them fly down our 108-foot track, to victory!
It’s simple, pick up a corn bag and toss it through the hole in one of the boards. If put more through the hole than your
friend, you win!
Be sure to peruse the country store. It is the cozy little shack nestled next to the farmhouse with a big cow leaning against
the wall. The store offers a nice outside area to visit with family and friends and is filled with hand-painted country signs
and other interesting craft items. In keeping with its name, the country store offers a variety of items to utilize during your
visit. It is the perfect spot to find drinks and snacks, pumpkins to decorate, fresh farm-grown mums, and purchase
flashlights to use when the sun sets.
