Arata Pumpkin Farm is the disneyland of pumpkin farms. In autumn the land here is tranformed into a sort of fun park for kids and adults. There is a petting zoo, haunted house, giant king kong, pumpkin river, corn fields to wander, hay rides, mini-train rides, toddler land playground, sword fighting shows in an arena, pony rides, and best of all the hay maze! It's expensive because each thing costs a few dollars or more- if you can only choose one, choose the hay maze. You will have at least an hour of entertainment trying to find your way out! It is a true feat that the owner makes a new maze each year- 7 feet high and covering 2.5 acres. It takes him 4-5 months to build it. On certain days a minotaur wanders the maze giving golden pumpkins to kids he sees. It can get crowded around Halloween so come early!
