  • Pumpkinville Corn Maze
    Sack races, hayrides, campfires, and other autumn activities surround Pumpkinville Corn Maze, but those roaming the stalks might not be aware of them. Stretching up to 20 acres, the fourth-generation corn and soybean farm's maze often keeps adventurers twisting and turning for an hour, sometimes longer early in the season. Besides navigating to the maze's end, each trek doubles as a scavenger hunt with at least 20 challenges, such as getting a scarecrow to swear off scaring crows. Especially intrepid visitors can even enter the maze until 8 p.m., where only flashlights and the glowing moon guide them through the hushed labyrinth. Meanwhile, guests 10 and under can traverse the mini-maze in about 15 minutes for one dollar.

  • Magistaad Stables
    Tiffany Lauer leverages her quarter-century of horseback-riding and training experience as the head of Magistaad Stables.

She would later go on to acquire a Level 3 Instructor CHA certification while working at a Girl Scout camp during her summers away from college. Today, riders can learn from her lifelong experience training and riding horses during lessons on the facility’s 14-acre tract, learning horsemanship principles such as grooming and riding styles such as English and Western pleasure riding.

  • Blank Park Zoo
    Blank Park Zoo educates the public about the wonders of the wild by re-creating far-flung habitats and ecosystems that house more than 1,000 animals and 104 different species ranging from Siberian tigers to hissing cockroaches. Zookeepers lead chats about animals and offer conservation tips, while exhibits include hands-on feedings that allow humans to go face-to-face or nose-to-beak with hungry giraffes and parakeets. Recent new arrivals welcome curious kids to commiserate with the growing pains and early bedtimes of young wallabies, camels, and seal pups, setting a foundation for learning that may be continued in classes designed for those aged 6 months to 5 years. In addition to raising awareness about the environment, Blank Park Zoo contributes to conservation efforts to preserve the future of native animals and their natural homes. The zoo participates in seven endangered-species breeding programs and donates a portion of admissions proceeds to several different wildlife initiatives.
