Visitors navigate the 10-acre corn maze's 5 miles of trails in the light of day or at night. After 7 p.m. on October 19, 25, and 26, actors in ghoulish costumes mimic 40 mannequins that lurk in the dark corners. Others shriek into the night, wield chainsaws, and shout the titles of their favorite Twilight Zone episodes. Within the same corn labyrinth, laser-tag players navigate concentric circles and radial arms, blasting each other with radio-frequency taggers with a range of up to 800 feet. Laser-tag games last about 10 minutes. Visitors can also harvest autumn vegetables and leave a suggested donation in a 3-acre pumpkin patch, where small and large carving pumpkins, gourds, mums, and Indian corn grow in sprawling rows. Additionally, you can frolic on a huge jumping pillow, ricochet throughout bounce houses, and visit alpacas and goats inside a petting barn.
Trent Meyer and Derek Bergman are committed members of the United Methodist Church, and sometimes choose to practice their faith through tree climbing, zip lining, swimming, and laser tag. They direct the United Methodist-run Camp Fontanelle, a year-round outdoor camp sprawled across more than 180 wooded acres of donated land. Both Trent and Derek draw from backgrounds as campers—and Trent from six years as a teacher—to lead summer camps for preschool through high-school students. They lead a team of camp counselors who coordinate harnessed-rope tree climbing, activities on low-ropes courses, archery lessons, and outdoor laser-tag matches.
They also draw visitors at different times of year with water slides, a 35'x65' jumping pillow and bounce houses, a petting barn filled with alpacas and goats, and pony rides. During the autumn-harvest season, they unveil the annual theme of a 10-acre corn maze filled with 5 miles of trails. A 3-acre pumpkin patch contains small and large carving pumpkins, gourds, mums, and Indian corn, which visitors can harvest and stuff into a large, horn-shaped wicker basket.
