Cherry Crest Adventure Farm Amazing Maize Maze

Cherry Crest Adventure Farm Amazing Maize Maze opens Saturday, July 1

Cherry Crest Adventure Farm, located in the heart of PA Dutch Country, launches its Summer Season Saturday, July 1st, with the grand opening of its 22nd Annual Amazing Maize Maze®. Summer hours are 10am-5pm Tuesday-Friday (and holiday Mondays), and 10am-7pm on Saturday.

Renown as one of the nation’s finest examples of agri-tainment, Cherry Crest annually attracts around 100,000 visitors from countries worldwide. The 15-acre Adventure Farm features over 50 family fun activities, games and rides. The Discovery Barn – home to the popular baby chicks hatchery and other interactive farm displays – sports an outdoor stage for live demonstrations and entertainment. The Farm Animal Center and Animal Grove are filled with friendly farm animals to pet and learn about. The Country Pig Races & Show, in its own arena with special seating, is an interactive production with actors and a cast of the cutest piglets. Plus a Farm Tour Wagon Ride takes visitors through Cherry Crest’s 300-acre cattle, poultry and farming operations.

What’s new this year? The maze design portrays the lovable characters of “Charlotte’s Web” in a 5-acre field of corn. Within its 21⁄2 miles of paths and tricky turns there are hidden puzzle pieces to fill in a map, Kernels of Knowledge for clues to a crossword puzzle, a roster of fun diversions, even a Corn Cafe. Plus there are five new activities – from the Round Bale Racers and Country Road Carts to a nifty Twisted Tail Rope Maker, fun-filled Battle Zone (with Nerf balls) and a Paintball Range filled with big and small tar

Upcoming Special Events include our 7th Annual Facebook Fan Day on July 8 (see Cherry Crest’s FB Page for free admission details), and a Pedal Tractor Pull (included with general admission) Aug. 8-12.

There are 10 different food corrals, food wagons and cafes to catch a snack, lunch or dinner. Cherry Crest is famous for its fresh-picked sweet corn roasted in its own husks, homemade cider donuts, fresh-squeezed lemonade and kettle corn. The menu also includes Angus burgers, hot dogs, chicken and pork, fries, salads and wraps. And don’t miss the School House Sweet Shop, home to Lancaster’s Best Fudge in over 30 flavors.

“It gives us great joy to share our somewhat corny vision of life on the farm,” said Marketing Manager Brian Groff. “Our mission is all about family fun, education, and creating memories that last a lifetime.”
