I think we have found our “go-to” place for Fall Family Fun: Hurricane Hill Farm in Coatesville, PA. While I had heard of Hurricane Hill Farm, this was my first experience there. Hands-down, Hurricane Hill Farm exceeded my expectations of what my little family would experience while there.
Small Corn Maze
Since the boys are 3 and 5 years old and had never been in a corn maze before, we opted to try out the smaller of the two corn mazes. They LOVED it. They ran to each junction and were laughing and asking which way do we go?
I was wearing the baby and she was having a blast laughing at her big brothers as they wandered the maze. She was also very intrigued at what all these tall stalks were!
We did a few loops, played Maizequest game throughout the maze and finally found our way to the exit. Of course, they wanted to go back in!
Large Corn Maze
The boys were all in for the larger, 6 acre “Lost Civilizations!” corn maze. There are maps that you can take for this maze, but about 2 feet in I realized that traveling with our two boys was not going to lend itself to using a map! They loved going in circles just as much as finding a new twist or turn. We also raced to find the hidden Maizequest game stations. They loved letting us know if the station was a number we had visited yet or not.
Pumpkin Patch Tractor Ride
After we did both corn mazes, we walked over to check out some of the other activities. The tractor was just unloading the last round of pumpkin pickers and so we decided we would take the little break and go for a ride. The boys love all things tractor so this ride was a huge hit. I liked that it was hay-free which I feel made the ride way more pleasant for allergy-ridden Bbear.
The boys took their time to pick out the perfect pumpkins. There were definitely many to choose from and, in my opinion, it didn’t seem like they could pick a bad one from the patch!
We didn’t spend much time with the animals as the kids were too anxious to check out all the other fun, but we did manage to meet some goats and say hello. I admit, I may have helped rush us because I knew Bbear would want to touch the animals and since we know how fast he reacts to cats and dogs, I just didn’t want to risk it. I also didn’t want him feeling left out when Cbear was petting anything that walked his way. It does seem like a fun area and you can feed the animals as well.
It was hard to pull Cbear away from the sand toy area where he got to sit and maneuver a “digger” of sorts. What did it? Me asking him if he wanted to shoot some corn out of a cannon. As tired as this little boy was, he raced over to see what it was he would be shooting.
Cbear just loved the corn cannon. I think Daddy did as well
As Cbear was shooting the corn cannon, Bbear just wanted to bounce. I sat back with the baby in the picnic area and just watched the pure joy on his face. Of course by this point, my phone was dead so I hadn’t any way to capture that joy for you all to see but trust me it is one of those memories that I will have forever!
While I had Bbear at the moonbounce, Cbear took a ride on the Cow Train. Looks like he had a great time, and he even picked a family name to ride in!
Overall, I was very impressed. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I’m always worried with a family of 5 that the cost of doing something fun like this might be too much, but the prices at Hurricane Hill Farms are very easy on the wallet. and the kids? Well, the boys were already asking when they can go back before we even reached the car. It was just that much fun!
