Skinny Bones Pumpkin Patch has partnered with us for many years as a Featured Listing in our Omaha Area Pumpkin Patch Guide. We are grateful for their invitation to visit Skinny Bones to experience all of the new attractions, and share them with you.
Skinny Bones Pumpkin Patch is a fun Fall family destination with many attractions to enjoy. We love the family-friendly atmosphere of Skinny Bones. From the planning, to the work they do year-round, to the taste testing of the perfect Kettle Corn recipe, the family aspect of Skinny Bones is evident.
5 Things We Love About Skinny Bones
1. Challenging Corn Maze and Scavenger Hunt
Our FAVORITE part of Skinny Bones Pumpkin Patch is their amazing Corn Maze! The Corn Maze is manicured by hand to make sure stalks are not pointing out into the walkway, and to create a smooth path to help make it wheelchair and stroller-friendly.
A fun addition to the Corn Maze is the Scavenger Hunt! Our entire family loved finding all of the stops, each with a different shaped hole punch.
We love this about the Corn Maze at Skinny Bones Pumpkin Patch! Some of the stops are more difficult to find than others, and not all of them are at the end of a dead end. It is a great length for families with school aged children, and challenging enough for teens and adults.
It was perfect active and fun family activity to do together. I kept saying there is nothing I would rather be doing on this beautiful Fall day!
They also offer a special Flashlight Night on Fridays and Haunted Night on Saturdays!
2. Many FUN Activities
New in 2017: The Roller Racers – Such a creative and unique idea! This was one of my kids favorite activities!
The Frankenslide is so fast and fun, and offers a beautiful view from the top of the stairs. It is deceiving how fast it goes, but it does give you a little adrenaline rush with a soft landing.
With 2 slides side-by-side, it was perfect to race each other over and over again!
The Giant Jumping Pillow is always a favorite for all ages!
The TWO racetracks are so much fun! My kids enjoyed the smaller track and raced each other around it several times. The carts were nice and easy to navigate for them. The larger track is very long with lots of twists and turns. Once you got started, it was fun to race one another!
Another new attraction in 2017 – The Jack O Shooters! Aim tennis balls at fun targets and challenge one another!
3. Fun for the Younger Ones
Skinny Bones Pumpkin Patch offers several attractions for the younger visitors.
The Pee Wee Maze is the perfect size for the little ones!
The Corn Pool is always a hit with the kids!
The Mad Cow Ride is fun for the little ones with different names on each car.
Look at this extra little seat for the little ones to ride along!
NEW Petting Zoo in 2017!
4. More Fun at Skinny Bones
My son’s favorite activity was the Nerf Gun War Zone. He loved challenging us, darting between the barriers, and shooting through the little hole cutouts. It felt like we were kids again playing with the Nerf Guns!
Face Painting is included with admission!
The Slanted House provides a unique experience you have to feel to believe. It is very deceiving. Be careful, though, it can cause you to feel dizzy!
The Vortex was cool!
A perfect picture spot!
5. The NEW Barn and Delicious Food
This beautiful Barn is NEW in 2017 offering indoor and outdoor seating!
Choose from many delicious food options in the new barn including BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, turkey legs, hog wings (Maria, the owner’s, favorite!), apple cider doughnuts, homemade fudge (free samples), caramel apples, kettle corn, and more!
I love Kettle Corn, and this was some of the best I have enjoyed! Maria shared that it is a family-recipe with a perfect balance of sweet and salty, and full of large whole kernels. Highly recommend!
The new Restrooms in 2017!
We had such a wonderful time at Skinny Bones Pumpkin Patch, and filled the beautiful Fall afternoon with lots of family-friendly fun.
