The adventure farm runs August 4 through October 31. There, the world's largest corn maze bamboozles wanderers with its serpentine passages of stalks, each as tall as a giant's baby gate. Visitors can climb up an observation tower to solve the puzzle in advance, slide down a 50-foot slide, or take a spin on pedal bikes or trikes. The farm also recently installed two giant spider webs for climbing. For an additional fee, visitors may pick out a pumpkin, take a wagon ride, plummet down a zipline, or grab a bite to eat. Kids aged three and under get free admission to the farm.

About Richardson Adventure Farm
A family walks down a lane cut into a sprawling field of corn, striding confidently until they reach a fork. After a debate, they turn left, and eventually left again. A wooden bridge leapfrogs them to a new path, lined with rows of eerily similar corn stalks. Luckily, it's a balmy day, the blue sky striated with wispy clouds, and they're not in a hurry to emerge from the green ocean of corn.
From an observation deck nearby, the 28-acre cornfield looks like a postage stamp inside the 450-acre farm, which grows soybeans, corn, and more than 50,000 Christmas trees. Homesteaded in 1840, the land is now owned and worked by a third generation of Richardsons. The family wanted to welcome visitors to the farm to enjoy the rural, outdoorsy fun that could only fit on such a sprawling space. They planted the corn maze—among the world's largest—and devised other attractions such as a zipline and paintball gallery. Visitors can also cheer on racing pigs, pet animals in an interactive zoo, and participate in different maze games. In autumn families come to pick pumpkins and in winter they cut their own Christmas trees.
