A visitor writes on September 21, 2010: "Last year my 8
year old had her birthday party here. It was so much fun. She
wants to have her 9th birthday party again this year (2010). This
maze was a bit smaller then others in the area, (We live in Holly
Springs) but it was so much more fun. The maze took enough time
to be challenging but not so long that if felt as if it would
never end. There were huge plastic pipes for the kids to crawl in
and roll down the hill. The girls rolled for a long, long time.
You park and take a hay ride to the maze and barn. That was a
blast too and even more fun riding it back in the dark to the
parking lot. They can a barrel wagon, and could shoot corn into
large barrels with the help of the employee. The girls loved that
too. We got hotdogs and drinks and had cake and gifts under the
roof of the nice open barn. It was an EXCELLENT place for a kids
