River Valley Ranch caters to inner children and actual kids with Christian summer camps, outdoor education and retreat programs, and special events. This October, Maizefest takes over the valley to bring the magic of corn to visitors from near and far. A 6-acre corn maze baffles senses of direction as visitors explore its intricate inner workings searching for nine hidden map pieces to solve the puzzle and escape the maze before night falls and the corn stalks sit down for dinner. The maze also incorporates an optional sudoku game, during which maze-goers solve a sudoku puzzle to hunt down 12 clues hidden within the maze for the chance to win a prize.
Activity tickets can be used to glean interactive joy from any of the other attractions at River Valley Ranch. Hayrides, the playground, the tree house, and the corn box are included in admission, but other attractions such as pony rides (3 tickets), the pumpkin patch (2–10 tickets) and the moon bounce (2 tickets) can be bought with tickets or bartered for with rare corn teeth.
Maizefest at River Valley Ranch
Hidden throughout the 6-acre corn maze at River Valley Ranch are nine map fragments. Using these clues, lucky visitors can find the hidden bridge to exit the maze, only to discover a whole host of fall-themed activities to get lost in. From hayrides and pony rides to a moon bounce and a classic pumpkin patch, Maizefest takes advantage of every aspect of the fall harvest. Adults and older kids can race each other towards victory in an inflatable obstacle course, while smaller kids have their own corny fun inside homemade corn boxes, that are kind of like sandboxes, but with more corn. Should all that fall-themed fun kindle an appetite, the ranch also offers snacks or full meals at the concession stand, with options including homemade chili, barbecue, and funnel cakes.
