I was in town by myself and I thought this would be something fun to do. I wasn't prepared to stand in line for 90 minutes to see my first carved pumpkin. I'm not sure how parents with little children did it. I would recommend getting there early, I arrived at 645 and it was packed. I would also recommend the premier parking. It was totally worth the $10. When I left cars were lined on both sides of the main road prior to the entrance. The pumpkins were amazing and I took lots of pictures. You must be patient with people and be prepared to go with the flow as you start in two lines, but it gets alittle disorganized moments when the pumpkins appear. If you are a AAA member, make sure to have your card as there was a discount. I didn't have mine and paid for price, $12. I do wish I would have eaten one of their red velvet cupcakes. They looked amazing! Bundle up, get a snack, relax and take in the atmosphere.
