ABOUT "Harvest Tyme Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze"
FAMILY CORN MAZE - Harvest Tyme is excited to offer the largest family corn maze in South Lake County. This year’s patriotic family maze spans over 3 acres and pays tribute to the red, white, and blue. As you wind through the stars and stripes of our nation’s flag, be sure and remember all of the men and women of our armed forces that have made sacrifices for your freedom and continue to serve and protect the United States of America. Included in the maze is a lookout bridge that allows our maze goers the opportunity to get an eagle-eye view of the whole maze with great picture opportunities. If you have never ventured into a corn maze, don’t be afraid that you won’t find your way out! We have games that you can play to assist in finding your way out and we have a texting program to give you clues! If all else fails we have our “corn patrol” to guide you to the exit. Help is never far away; staff members are stationed inside the corn maze to offer helpful hints to lost and circling visitors. It is sure to be an amazing challenge for “kids” ages 2 to 92. KIDDIE CORN MAZE - Harvest Tyme offers a petite maze for our younger guests. This maze shares the same entrance location as our family maze but winds though the stars of the flags. Parents are welcome to travel with their children but will need to purchase their own ticket or wristband. NEW FOR 2013 SEASON – FLASHLIGHT MAZE - Friday and Saturday | October 11th and 12th | 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Explore our 3 acre corn maze under the moonlight. Guests will venture their way through our family and kiddie corn mazes using only the light from their flashlight and the stars twinkling above. Please note that at Harvest Tyme Pumpkin Patch we are about family fun and building lasting memories. This is not a scary or haunted experience but rather an opportunity to get your family and friends together for some memorable fun. It will be dark so every member of your party is required to have their own flashlight therefore, be sure to BYOF (bring your own flashlight). Last admission into the maze will be at 8:30 p.m. After completing the maze, gather everyone up around our camp fire for some additional autumn fun. Warm yourself by the camp fire with warm apple cider and fresh apple cinnamon and pumpkin spice donuts from our concession stand. Private campfires are also available for rent (2 hours – $35). PUMPKINS - Whether you take a tractor ride to the field or choose from our already picked pumpkins, rest assured there will be a great assortment of pumpkins available. HAYRIDES - Take a ride on our custom hay wagons complete with stairs and handrails, pulled by one of our International Farmall tractors; it is sure to be a comfortable ride with lasting memories.
