Wild West Corn Maze in Hudson, CO
I’ve been stuck home most of the past week with sinusitis and bronchitis, which, let me tell you, isn’t much fun. Fortunately I’m now on antibiotics and hoping to start feeling something like normal soon. Yesterday I made my first attempt at normalcy by heading out to the Wild West Corn Maze in Hudson, CO.
One of my favorite things about fall is heading to pick pumpkins and meander through a corn maze while sipping hot cider. I got to do one of these 3 yesterday, at least! They do sell pumpkins, but we had a hard time finding exactly where they were. There were plenty of other fun family activities to do to keep us busy.
My 4 year old had a great time taking part in all of the activities for kids. She jumped for at least half an hour on the jumping pillow, played in a corn box (instead of a sand box), rode the barrel cars as well as a pony. We skipped mini-golf, but my husband did climb to the top of the huge hay tower.
After having fun with all the kids activities, we headed into the corn maze. We had fun checking out FSI – Farm Scene Investigation. We wandered to find all of the stations and matched up pictures to the “crime” scene. This was really fun for my daughter, as it’s kids-themed. We let her lead the way and tell us which way to turn when we came to crossroads. Inevitably, as I felt last year when we finished with the corn maze we went to, I don’t feel I need to see corn any time soon!
They have acres of maze to explore. We only made it about 1/4 of the way through. Overall we had a fun time!
A few things to point out before you head out:
Adult admission is $12, Child is $10. Rides are an additional purchase as are pumpkins. We upgraded my daughter’s ticket to unlimited, but I am now pretty upset because I see that 4 and under are free for all rides. No one asked the age of my daughter and she was standing right next to me when I made the purchase. The pony rides are an additional $5.
There is a food truck that sells burgers, chicken strips, hot dogs and shaved ice as well as soda. There is another area that sells hot drinks and coffee… but not until 8pm. My favorite part of hitting a fall festival like this is walking around with some hot cider. I guess we should have gone after 8pm, but that’s past my daughter’s bedtime.
The Wild West Corn Maze is fabulous. They have put a lot of time and work into it. It’s an easy drive up 76 from the Denver metro, and we had a beautiful day for it! There is plenty for your kids to do to have fun, and plenty of fun for the teen & adult crowd once the sun goes down!
