In the summer we provide canoe, kayaks, and raft rentals on the meramec river. Once fall comes around we have the pumpkins ready to be picked, hay rides, corn maze, petting zoo, zip line, cow train, bounce houses, live music, and so much more! We are a great family attraction for the fall make a whole day with us!

Second visit to this place. Nothing changed from 4 years ago. There is not enough activities geared for toddlers. The inflatable slide is too high for some children. The zip line is only for older kids. The corn box is a horse trough with a layer of corn in it. The only thing good was the "cow train", which is little barrels painted like cows, pulled by a four wheeler. The adult fee $9 is too high, since no adults actually partake of the activities, and only serve as a chauffeur to get the kids there, the price should be lower. The hayride was ok. They were very disorganized on the weekday we were there. Not enough help to staff all areas. Pumpkin "patch" is a few pumpkins laying in an open field and some on a table and in a box. They have a corn cannon and a slingshot, which is aimed too close to the area where the hayride travels. There were horses in stalls, as well as free roaming goats, some chickens, etc. Save your money and time and go elsewhere.

Thank you for your review. We do appreciate feedback. We are a corn maze and pumpkin patch, please give us some suggestions on what we could offer that would make your family happy? Not quite sure what else we can do for toddlers, so if you have any ideas we would like to entertain them. We do add every year, we have added Knockerballs, corn cannon, Grain Train, more inflatables. Thanks again for your feedback.

I would leave 0/10 if I could. I booked a float trip for 8/12 and was notified by email at 5pm that night that my trip was being cancelled due to high water levels. I then had to schedule a float for somewhere else as I had company coming in from out of town. I asked for a refund and was told I could reschedule that they do not do refunds. I feel this is very poor practice to not issue refunds. I did not cancel, they did. I therefore had to pay for 2 float trips that day and due to the very poor customer service I do not plan to ever book a float trip with this company in the future. I see other reviews similar to this, just wish I had read the reviews before booking.

This place is a total rip off. You have to pay just enter even if you want to see if there are any activities that you may want to do. They claim it’s a pumpkin patch, however it’s just overpriced store bought pumpkins sitting in a field which they will nit even let you look at or touch.

Float trip on rafts was great, but felt shorter than the 3-4 miles. Not to worry because we just pulled off to the side and stopped. I have read the other reviews and don’t know what happened with those people. We arrived on a Saturday morning and people were there to sign us in. Got our stuff loaded on the bus, and a nice man drove us to the drop off point upriver. He was engaging while he told us what was going to happen and what the requirements were. Also told us how to find the end, and at the end there’s a really big red sign with white letters that says Brookdale exit, plus it’s at the intersection of the Big River (large creek) so it’s pretty easy to find. Raft was nice, follow up was good, too. What “customer service” do you need on a river float trip - they drive you to the drop off point, put you in a raft and off you go. We had a blast and you can’t beat the convenience of being basically in town for local STL people. Saturday in August at 10:30am and we only ever saw one other boat, so it wasn’t crowded, either. Also we had 5 people in a 6 person raft and there was plenty of room for three bags and two coolers. Will definitely go again.

Jess was amazing at working with us to schedule a hayride for our Fall Festival at our church. She was incredibly flexible as we worked through weather and quarantine challenges. We will DEFINITELY use them next year! The hayride was super fun, driver was so friendly and helpful and they even brought us hay bales for seating(which we did pay extra for, but so worth it!) And they took the hay bales back!

Dishonest or inept? I can't decide. Horrible event planning. Took advantage of us, taking our money with promises they were either unable or unwilling to deliver on. Prices were ridiculous and they didn't care how many people they inconvenienced. 1,500 people at the event and they had 7 port-a-potties and one beer tent charging $9 for a beer. I wouldn't trust anything these people say.

I made the mistake of booking a single canoe rental before I had all my travel arrangements made. I asked within 24 hours to cancel, and they refused to refund my funds, and instead offered "credit." I live hundreds of miles away, and may never be in the area again, so the offer of credit is pointless. Inflexible, unfriendly customer service.

One of the very worst customer service experiences.

We've waited several years to partake in the Christmas Eve carriage rides, and they've called to notify that due to weather concerns they will be canceling. This is understandable, however they have nothing in place to make this better for their customers. They won't put these folks on a priority list for the upcoming year, nor is it delivered with any understanding or care - they leave everyone SOL with only a refund offer. I would not recommend counting on them. Don't have people fly out of town or have this as your holiday experience, because it is likely that it will be pulled out right beneath you.

What a complete joke. One of the poorest events I have ever attended. One bar to host over 1000 people. Adults behaving like ill-mannered children - opening eggs and throwing them on the ground. Some people didn't get a single egg. Complete waste of money. DO NOT GO! See attached picture to see the long line to get a drink and the liquor they served was the cheapest on the planet.

We went to the Fear Farm haunted attraction that they have in the fall and had a blast. Very different experience from other haunted houses in the area. You take a haunted hayride to the the cornfield and then back when you are down. Spent $20 and were there for well over an hour,mucj more bang for your buck than anywhere else.
