With the sunlight overhead fading fast, we decided to hit up the corn maze first. Call me a scaredy cat, but I don't consider walking into a corn maze at twilight a great idea. Even without a "passport" to help guide us, we made it through the maze in about 30-45 minutes. Jace led the way mostly, and he had such a fun time running through the corn pathways and picking up random fallen ears of corn!
Just outside of the maze entrance/exit was a big boat-shaped playground/swing set that the munchkin immediately ran to, complete with a big slide, rock wall, and fireman's pole to slide down!
|Jumping Pillow, that's us front and center!|
The highlight of our trip, I daresay, was the Jumping Pillow! The jumping pillow was a new addition to the farm this year. It's pretty much a giant basketball court-sized vinyl pillow (think a moon bounce, without the sides or roof) where anyone of any age can jump freely. SO MUCH FUN! There were so many other jumpers (mostly rowdy teenagers) that Jace and I just had to sit down to enjoy the bouncy-goodness without injury. I wish they'd had these around when I had my 18th birthday party back in the day, this would have been so much better than a moon bounce!
Next Jace and Daddy took a ride on the "cow train." The cow train is made from a bunch of metal barrels made into cows, pulled by a 4-wheeler. Not too comfy or roomy, but it looks like they had a good time winding around the front of the maze. Last but not least we found the corn box, which is a sandbox with dried corn kernels instead of sand. They had toy tractors and CAT vehicles and buckets inside, it was a nice way to wind down the day and let Jace play in a contained area.
We had so much fun and can't wait to go again next year! If you're planning a vacation to Maine during Fall leaf-peeping season, definitely be sure to set aside a day to visit Thunder Road Farm's annual corn maze.So much for the kiddos to do, and plenty for adults too!
