The Pumpkin Ranch - The Pumpkin Ranch: Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze Adventure for Two at The Pumpkin Ranch ($24 Value)

Corn mazes are statistically the safest of all labyrinths, thanks to their edible walls and Minotaurs’ seasonal allergies. Celebrate the season in safety with this Groupon.

The Deal

$12 for corn maze and pumpkin patch outing for two ($24 total value)

  • Admission for two ($18 value)
  • Two tennis ball launcher tickets; one ticket includes three balls per person ($6 value)

Each pass includes admission to the corn maze, a hayrack ride to the pumpkin patch, pony rides, and ziplines. The tennis ball launcher allows you to shoot tennis balls at targets on a pond; if you hit one, you win a concession stand item. The ranch is open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from September 27th to October 27th. Kids 2 and younger are admitted free. Please note the ponies are nearly full-sized horses and are not available to ride every day of the week; check the website for availability.

The Pumpkin Ranch

Open for just six weeks per year, The Pumpkin Ranch in Winterset, Iowa seems more like a scene from a child’s dream than a family-run business. But that’s the way the Handsaker family planned it, hoping to create a family-friendly hub that celebrated their love of all things autumn. Now hey began by cultivating their 9-acre cornfield into a complex maze, incorporating 12 checkpoints that make sure guests are on the right path and offer clues to the ranch’s Farm Scene Investigation mystery. Alongside the maze, the Handsakers have built up a 10-acre patch of pumpkins and gourds, where squashy specimens wait to be carved into jack-o’-lanterns or stomped into wine.

Now celebrating five years, the Handsakers have added even more activities to the The Pumpkin Ranch, including a 30’x40’ jump pillow and 30-foot slides. The hayrack ride transports guests to and fro on the ranch, speeding up walks so guests can spend more time reveling in the play zone’s bounce houses, climbable straw bales, and tire towers. There's even a special area for toddlers. For more exhilarating pastimes, the ranch offers exhilarating zipline courses and fire pits to warm up chilly fall afternoons. Inside the concession stand, staffers sell steamy cups of specialty ciders and hot chocolate alongside homemade baked goods, giving guests a taste of fall, and outside, a concession stand serves up larger bites such as grilled and smoked meat to fuel the outdoor fun.

The Pumpkin Ranch is open Fridays–Sundays from September 26–October 26, 2014 and keeps an up-to-date list of the times they'll be offering activities, including horseback riding, face painting, and free professional photography.
