Each autumn, friends and families meander through the twists and turns of the 25-acre Liberty Corn Maze, whose GPS-precision-cut design changes every year. This year’s design, which commemorates World War One and our nation's soldiers, is actually composed of four separate mazes, each dotted with nefarious twists and turns. Visitors set off down 50-inch-wide trails lined with tall, swaying stalks, armed only with a map, their wits, and a lion sidekick whose fear makes them strong. Along the way, bridges lift travelers above the stalks and give them a bird’s-eye view of their surroundings. Friendly staffers keep guests on the right trail and help locate lost friends and family members. For young ones, a separate three-foot-high soybean maze provides entertainment while keeping kids within view at all times.

When her laser makes a successful hit, the speakers in her vest fire with computer-voiced congratulations, while at the other end, her opponent's vest vibrates to ensure he knows he was tagged. Those are just two of the engrossing features of Jaegerz Laser Tag’s Lasertron equipment that help players get into the game. Opponents open fire on one another with a single pop or even a rapid burst of laser fire as they take cover behind black-lit obstacles. Players can find plenty of places to duck and run in the 6,000 square foot arena’s fog-filled room while strobe lights work to disorient players. Guests can also arrange to have birthday parties and fundraising events held at the facility.

Kansas City's Ghosts and Gangsters Tour takes thrill-seekers by coach for an authentically spooky look at KC's paranormal and Mafia life. Strap on a proton pack and let an engaging guide tell of the history and hauntstory of landmarks such as the Hotel Savoy, the oldest continuously operating hotel west of the Mississippi, and St. Mary's Church, which the ghost of Father Henry David Jardine is said to haunt to prove his death wasn't a suicide and his car wasn't a bicycle. In addition to spectral sights, you'll see several worldly Mafioso spots, such as the location of several late-1970s bombings and bullet holes from a 1933 massacre of four police officers and a fugitive at the Union Station railroad depot. Tours, which start at 1300 W. 12th Street, are held by reservation on Friday nights and Saturday nights from 6 p.m.–9 p.m. and 9 p.m.–12 a.m.

The journey to the more than 50-acre pumpkin patch begins with a spirited tractor-pulled hayride. Amateur squash hunters can romp through the field in search of filling for jack-o'-lantern pie or select a pre-picked pumpkin. An additional 20 acres of the farm are strictly designated for family fun. There are play areas for kids, including a melon-scratching Little Munchkin corn maze and a hands-on petting farm. Place your corn bets on Uncle Lester's Pig Races, with curly-tailed contestants including Pork Chop, Lean Cuisine, and Even-Toed Ungulate. Sprouts and sprout-tenders can hop aboard Little Bud's Railroad for a half-mile journey around the farm's many landmarks ($3 per person per ride). After digging up wholesome veggies, kinds can uncover precious minerals and candied dinosaur bones at Uncle Earl's Mining Camp ($5 per person).
