Autumn is the only season where pumpkins are judged by their personality as well as their performance in the swimsuit competition. Get to know fall's finest with today's Groupon: for $24, you get a family package for four at the Killbuck Trails Family Fun Park in Anderson (up to a $58 value). The package includes:
- Four admission tickets (up to $28 value)
- One-mile hayride (included with admission)
- Two 10-pound pumpkins from the pumpkin patch (up to $5 value each)
- $20 worth of game and activity tickets
When autumn falls, Killbuck Trails transforms into a weekend haven for crisp thrills and nostalgic family fun. The one-mile hayride rambles over dirt trails as parents recount the autumnal activities of their childhood, recreated in amusements such as the mini maze, face-in-the-hole, and the rotary-dial-telephone station. Groupon customers can head to the vast pumpkin patch and pick out two 10-pound spheres to take home, or hunt for the elusive giant pumpkin for an additional $0.50 per pound. A $20 credit grants access to rides and activities including bounce houses, apple launching, sledgehammer-fueled pumpkin destruction, and quietly listening to the Smashing Pumpkins on headphones.
Though not included in today's Groupon, hamburgers fill stomachs after excursions, and warm apple cider and hot chocolate trickle down throats to drive out the chill of autumn air. The festival runs from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday, October 9, 16, 23, and 30, and Saturday, October 15.
