Sprawling across 160+ acres of verdant grounds, Circle G Ranch curates a herd of more than 700+ exotic animals, allowing visitors to cruise down a 3-mile path to get close to the curious creatures. Zebras, emus, deer, and alpaca trot up to vehicles for handfuls of delicious feed, and guided safari-truck and camelback tours impart nuggets of information on the park's wildlife. After treks, visitor head to the petting zoo to visit a rotating gang of cuddly animals, such as baby lambs, goats, and parrots, along with an African crested porcupine and a family of sulcata tortoises.
Weaverville Yoga's passionate instructors help aspiring yogis pose, stretch, and align themselves toward physical wellness and spiritual serenity with tension-melting Kundalini and therapeutic yoga classes. The serene studio’s muted tones and natural light set a soothing stage for a robust schedule, engendering relaxation as students vogue through body-bending poses. During exhilarating Kundalini yoga sessions, students harness holistic balance and serenity through poses facilitated by meditative pranayama breathing and underscored by tranquil music. The studio's gentle yoga classes share therapeutic yogic techniques to aid pupils with limited mobility caused by age, illness, or lengthy embraces with an ice sculpture. In Flexible Yoga for the Inflexible Man, instructors walk all-male groups through classes that help students regain pliancy more quickly than a freshly buttered pipe cleaner.
In 2011, WBIR-TV reported that local racecar driver Trevor Bayne dropped by Oakes Farm to see his face carved into the cornfield. The farm had adopted Bayne as that year's maze theme, shaping the field to look like his face and his racecar when viewed from above. On the ground, however, the maze was a tangle of curves and dead ends that often took guests 90 minutes to solve, longer if they neglected to learn ancient Greek in order to ask the minotaur directions.
The farm updates its agricultural labyrinth annually to reflect a new motif, but it never fails to entertain explorers with its routes and interactive games. Just as delightful are the hayrides that ferry visitors to and from the pumpkin patch, the smell of autumnal sweets from the Cornfections stand, and the echoes of laughter from inside the Mine Shaft—a giant slide in the farm's Back 40 entertainment area. These attractions, alongside animal exhibits, pedal karts, and open zones for freeform play, draw families to the seasonal hotspot. In the days approaching Halloween, however, the farm endeavors to make patrons flee with its haunted attractions and pop quizzes for school children.
