Yes, all paying members for the pumpkin patch or combo field trip will receive one small pumpkin to take home. If you want a larger one you must pay for it.
No, bus drivers do not have to pay. Any bus driver not participating in a fall field trip will be given a coupon for a free drink in the concessions area to enjoy while waiting for their group. During the spring and summer months we do not have our concessions stand open. The closest option for food is the truck stop on Highway 52 and I-25.
Yes, but keep in mind that they may have to stand in line. This could delay your group’s start time if they do not arrive early enough.
We never want to be closed, but fall weather can bring rain or snow. The parking lot and yard are dirt so wet weather can create mud which can be unsafe for customers and staff. If we decide to close, we will contact you right away and attempt to reschedule. We will also post weather updates in our Twitter feed, here on our website, and on our Facebook page.
We allow two schools/classes to book in each 15-minute time slot. This time slot is for when your field trip class time will start. Please arrive early to ensure you are ready to go at your scheduled time.
We highly recommend checking out our Homeschool Days option. This option allows your group to experience the field trip activities without the requirement of everyone showing up at the same time. You also get unlimited barrel train and pedal kart rides which are not included in a regular field trip. There are no regular field trips scheduled on the days.
Your group may come for a field trip, but you MUST understand that this is a guided tour. Please stress to your attendees that they must be ready to go at your scheduled time or they will risk missing the wagon ride. We are on a tight schedule and will not always have the ability to wait for late arrivals. We cannot guaranty the ability to catch them up to you if you have already left for the pumpkin patch. Please also note, the barrel train and the pedal karts are NOT included in the field trip. We also suggest that homeschools groups that have more flexibility choose a timeslot of 11:30 am or later to allow for schools on a tight schedule to have the very popular 10:00 am slot.
No, we do not offer any field trip discounts for Title I Schools. Instead, we offer Value Day pricing the first few weeks of the season. Please book your group on a Value Day to receive the best pricing.
Field Trips are for groups of 15 or more and require 48 hours advance reservations.
