Lancaster County (PA) – Now in its 20th year, Cherry Crest Adventure Farm has earned a place in agri-tainment history as home to America’s longest-running Amazing Maize Maze®. . .and a fun place for all ages to enjoy life on the farm. A 175-acre cattle and poultry operation, Cherry Crest offers over 50 farm fun activities, games and rides – including the popular Discovery Barn and Farm Experience Center with baby chicks hatchery and Goat Mountain. It's so much fun you can easily spend the day.
Reflecting the theme “20 Years of Trails and Rails”, the 2015 maze reflects the farm's first maze design and the Strasburg Rail Road Steam Train that runs through the property. There are many decisions and fun diversions inside the maze (even a Corn Cafe), plus an interactive game with 15 hidden puzzle pieces that complete a map.
Summer Season (thru Sept. 18) Day Pass is $17 all ages 3 and up. Open Tues-Fri 10-7, Sat 10-7.
Fall Season runs Sept. 19-Nov.7. Thurs-Fri Day Pass is $17, Sat $20, plus $14 Twilight Pass for Fri-Sat Flashlight Mazes that run 6-10pm. Fall Day Passes include the Flashlight Maze at no extra charge.
Cherry Crest offers a full roster of farm fun stuff to do, as well as food corrals for lunch and dinner, shops. Fall Season includes U-pick pumpkins and popcorn and a Farm Market.
Children age 2 and under admitted Free.
The Discovery Channel has named this “the World’s Biggest Free-Standing Mind- Bender.” In 2004 the annual Amazing Maize Maze featured a five-acre cornfield sculpted in the shape of an Amish horse and buggy.
A visit here begins with a staff member who explains it all to get you started. Then try to find your way out of the maze. As you work your way through, you’ll come upon clues, tunnel slides, watering stations, all nine planets, rest areas, the “waters of Neptune,” and more. There are two bridges that afford a complete view of the maze.
Average time to complete the maze is about an hour, but you could spend much longer exploring the farm. Watch for different designs in coming years. There are also four smaller mazes, a petting zoo, hayride, a “snack shack,” and special events. Many people arrive to explore the maze by way of the Strasburg Rail Road.
