Yesterday we got to visit Anderson Farms in Erie, CO. The weather was nice and the drive wasn’t far but we didn’t know what to expect. My kids were so excited because there was promises of a Corn maze so we drove their right when they opened.
After getting our tickets and being greeting by some lovely folks, my kids ran straight over to the goat pen! They had goats you could pet and feed and chickens you can feed. My kids could have stayed in that area most of the time but I talked them into checking out the corn maze.
I am only 3 weeks out from having a c -section so I am not in the best shape of my life but I decided we were going to make a go of it. My 5 year old navigated the maze with ease (because if I am being honest, I had no clue where we were going!) There are 2 enormous mazes that we could have spent hours in! My little 2 year old stayed behind but my 4 and 5 year old had a blast in it but I also think it would be fun for older kids too!
This picture is inside the corn maze on top of one of the platforms. The view is simply amazing! I couldn’t have asked for better scenery or better company.
This is a picture of the older kids/adult themed part of the park! It’s the “Terror in the Corn” attraction that is Colorado’s only Haunted Hayride and Ghost Town experience. This attractions starts at 7pm at night so it wasn’t up and running when we went but I hear it is a TON of fun!
Next up was a tractor ride out to the pumpkin patch. We fed some long horned cows along the way and headed to an enormous pumpkin patch where there were pumpkins of all shapes and colors!
And last but not least we headed to the country store to pursue all the goodies they had for sale, pay for our pumpkins and sit down for a nice lunch. Let me tell you, I got the corn chowder and it was delicious! I was so impressed they even had healthy options including wheat buns for my kids hot dogs and apple sauce!
I cannot say enough good things about Anderson Farms. We even plan to come back and have my oldest’s birthday party there in a couple of weeks!
1. One of a kind adventure…literally the most fun attraction we have been to in denver!
2. Extremely clean…I mean even the port-a potties smelled good!
3. Helpful and accommodating staff. They treated my kids like special guests!
4. My kids didn’t want to leave
5. It is stroller friendly so if you have small kids you can bring your strollers
6. Great price for all the fun things you get to do
7. Not to far of a drive
8. Everywhere you turn, there is something fun to do
9. HUGE pumpkin patch
10. A fun place to make great memories!
