When Farmer and Mrs. Guffey opened Guffey Acres in 2009, they wanted to create a community outlet that combined education, agriculture, and fun. A trio of mazes winds across more than 7 acres, coaxing guests on a labyrinthine journey that can last up to two hours, and nightfall brings spooky figures around every twist and turn as one maze transforms into the haunted Field of Screams. Outside the maze, the corn-related reveling continues with hayrides, cobs launched from the corn cannon, and playtime in the farm’s corn box, which is like a sandbox but more delicious, according to many goats. When the corny carousing has run its course, head to the barn to learn fun facts about animals or tour the pumpkin patch on a 10-barrel train. If all that farm fun conjures up an appetite, visitors can reenergize with treats on Cole's Concessions' dining porch.
Established in 1926, Frankfort Golf Club's verdant landscape is complemented by mature pine and oak trees lining the fairways and impeccably manicured greens that accept putts seven days a week. The par 71 course challenges golfers and retired confectioners with white sugar-sand bunkers, rolling fields of heather, and wild golf carts grazing on excess roughage. The crystalline waters of Prairie Creek wind their way through the fairways and come into play on 12 of the 18 holes. Although not included with today’s deal, two on-site bars hydrate guests with flowing libations, and a practice facility cultivates fundamentals with putting greens and trophy hoisting stations.
A classic lazy river drifts in a circle around Splash House Water Park's more than 30,000 square feet of deck as visitors soak in the sun in between dips in the water. An undulating wave pool tosses tube-riding swimmers to and fro, and twin waterslides whip riders in high-speed loops before firing them out into a pool of water or a misplaced Super Big Gulp container. Younger visitors frolic in the semi-submerged kids' play zone, constructed of nets, colorful piping, and bright yellow platforms with hidden, water-spewing spouts. Concession stands fuel the continuous fun with cool drinks, hot eats, and room-temperature napkins.
Picturesque landscaping and above-average speed greens mark the challenging 18 holes at Honeywell Golf Course. Established in 1944 as a private course situated on the elegant Honeywell estate, landscape architect Arthur Hills expanded the terrain through the family's formal gardens in 1980, blending the old and new styles as seamlessly as a miniskirt made from buffalo-head nickels. Bunkers shelter the undulating front nines from errant shots and scantily clad sunbathers, and emerald fairways wend through the old garden's flowering shrubs and trees toward short, tighter terrain. Swingers looking for a challenge will enjoy testing their club’s mettle on Hills's addition, confronting some of the only back-to-back par-3 holes in the state.
Proving Grounds Paintball releases pretend warriors onto newly updated paintball fields where they can safely stalk, ambush, and battle other humans. Painters can survey the fields and then choose a battleground, all of which feature large barricades and strategic obstacles, based on playing style. The popular castle-themed field beckons stealthy riflemen with a two-story rampart surrounding a courtyard and a high tower, an ideal setting for players to pose as bards, sing songs about free music downloads, and then snipe anyone who comes out to listen. PGP also has speedball fields with inflatable barriers for airball and pipe bunkers for hyperball.
