Our family enjoyed a fun crisp September day at Skinny Bones Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze, a family-owned and operated pumpkin patch outside of Blair, NE, on Highway 133.
We began our visit with the enjoyable 10-acre Corn Maze. The paths through the maze are very smooth and well-manicured, creating a fun and comfortable walk even with a stroller. We loved the challenge of the scavenger hunt, as we searched for 8 punch card stations hidden within the maze. Find all 8, and you win a lucky prize! (Be careful, each hole punch is a different shape!)
I loved the excitement in my kids’ eyes upon finding each station. Even after 2 trips through the maze, we were not able to find #7, but thoroughly enjoyed the challenge (and the competitive side in me wanted to keep looking)!
Their New Pee Wee Corn Maze is a delightful path through the corn for the little ones. It is short enough for them to run through on their own over and over again.
The House of Mystery is not for the unbalanced at heart. A feeling of uneasiness may await you during your walk across the floor toward the other side. Be sure to check out the golf ball as it appears to roll uphill!
As we made our way on the Hayrack Ride, we passed the pumpkin patch, which has a variety of pre-picked or pick your own pumpkins to take home.
The Eerie Trail was a fun path through the trees, but be sure to watch out for that thing in the box – it is mist-ifying! The kids also loved playing in the Corn Pool.
Our last stop was for a fun game in the Nerf Gun War Zone, designed by their youngest son. Great for kids and kids-at-heart dodging around all of the obstacles!
