- What ages are appropriate for visiting Corn Cob Acres?
We have games and activities for the entire family. Grandparents can sit back and relax on the “Little Screamers” Hayride. Parents can enjoy traveling alongside their children on our Pedal Kart path. Older children and teens will enjoy the challenge of knocking down a target at the Giant Sling Shots, or completing a somersault or back flip on the Flying Squirrel Bungee Trampolines. Children ages 2 through 12 will be the ones that find the most activities to pursue and will be the ones who want to spend the longest time at Corn Cob Acres.
- How long will we be at Corn Cob Acres?
While a typical stay lasts 3 hours, it is not uncommon for a family to stay the entire day.
- What should I wear?
You are coming to a well-maintained farm, including a cornfield, where you will encounter several different ground surfaces – grass, stone, mulch and dirt (possibly mud). Although strollers are capable of handling 90% of our terrain, there are no paved areas at our park. All events are outside and exposed to previous and current weather conditions. Dress as you would if you were heading to the park for the day. Keep in mind to dress in layers, as the weather can change quite a bit when the sun begins to set.
We highly recommend:
- Sturdy closed-toed shoes
- Hat and Sunglasses
- Can we leave and re-enter the park?
Yes, as long as you are wearing your admission wristband, you may come and go as many times as you wish throughout the day of your purchased admission. You need to be wearing your wristband to re-enter. Your wristband is valid only on the day of ticket purchase. Two-Day and Season Passes are also available for purchase.
- Is there food?
Yes, there are lunch options, snacks and drinks available for purchase.
- Can we bring in our own food?
No outside food is permitted within our park. You may purchase food from one of our vendors, choose to go outside the park to your car for a packed lunch (no picnic tables are available outside the entrance), or leave Corn Cob Acres to visit a nearby restaurant (wristbands will allow you back into the park on the same day as purchased).
- Can I bring a stroller and/or pull a wagon?
Yes, but we recommend a front carrier or backpack. Big strollers are not recommended- you will not be on paved surfaces.
- Is smoking permitted?
There is one designated smoking area inside the park. We ask that you only smoke in this designated area only. This designated smoking area can be found in the Wild West near the Creepy House Entrance Path.
- Can I bring my pet?
No, we love pets but for safety reasons we do not allow them in our park.
- Do you offer group rates?
Yes. Groups of 20 or more participants receive a special rate. The group leader must pay for the entire group. Please refer to our Dates, Times, and Prices page for pricing details. We are also open on certain weekdays to accommodate educational field trips. These trips must be arranged in advance. To see a list of available dates please visit our Field Trip Page.
