Lancaster County (PA) – Batter Up! and head for Cherry Crest Adventure Farm as it swings into its Fall Season with new activities, special events and a Fall Market in addition to 50+ Farm Fun activities and rides.
The baseball theme Amazing Maize Maze® has hit major league status with its massive interactive game, multiple levels of play, and fun diversions that rage from a speed pitch machine and baseball trivia to photo opps that put trekkers into baseball moments.
Starting Sept. 21st, trekkers can also tackle the maze at night when the moon and a flashlight guide the way.
Flashlight Mazes (14 total) are scheduled every Friday-Saturday night Sept. 21 through Nov. 3 from 6:30-10 p.m. Initially started as a non-scary alternative to Halloween, they’re now so popular the schedule has been expanded to seven weekends. They’re also great for goups as admission includes a bonfire and wagon ride, plus you can add a campfire package with food options.
The Fall Season schedule also includes:
• Harvest Festivals, Saturdays Sept. 22 through Oct. 27 from 10am until dusk, with a changing menu of kids’ activities including pony rides, pumpkin painting and airbrush tattoos, kids’ crafts, sand art, plus the famous Corn Cannon.
• Pick-Your-Own To Take Home, Friday/Saturday Sept. 21 - Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. until dusk. Wonder through six acres of pumpkins and popcorn (that you pop in a microwave, right on the ear). Plus there’s Cherry Crest’s Fall Market.
• Sukkos Holiday Oct. 4 from 10am- 5pm with a menu by Central PAKosher Mart.
• Columbus Day Monday, Oct. 8, from 10am-5pm. with all of the regular daytime activities.
• Pumpkin Madness Festival on closing day, Nov. 3., from 10am until dusk, with a zany roster of pumpkin related activities and food.
