Barn Quilt Maze and Jump Pad Featured for 2015 Season
Geisler Farms celebrates the 10th anniversary of its Growing Family Fun corn maze and pumpkin patch in 2015. It features a challenging barn quilt maze and a new jump pad attraction.
Celebrating our 10th Anniversary of Fall Fun
Geisler Farms celebrates the 10th anniversary of its Growing Family Fun corn maze and pumpkin patch. The farm is open on the weekends from Saturday, Sept. 5 through Saturday, Oct. 31. The new hours are 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. on both days. That means, you must arrive at the farm by 7 p.m. to enjoy the maze or hayride before the farm closes for the day.
Barn Quilt Maze
This year’s maze is a barn quilt. For you quilt fans, it is a double wedding ring pattern. The field has five identical places. The corn is the tallest that it has ever been for a maze. The five miles of trails should prove to be challenging and fun to walk. Growing Family Fun promotional partners are DEKALB, Casey’s General Store and Van-Wall Group.
Earn a Slice of Homemade-to-Go Pizza
Thanks to the generosity of Casey’s General Store, visitors who complete the corn maze may receive a coupon good for 1 slice of Casey’s homemade pizza at your local Casey’s General Store.
Hop on the Farm’s New Attraction
A happy childhood memory for farm kids is playing in the straw (or hay) in the barn. Our new farm attraction allows you to jump around without being covered in straw. The jump pad is an inflatable mattress that measures 30 ft. by 50 ft. that guests can bounce on. The jump pad is located in the hoop building.
