    Amazing family fun as promised at a great price!
    This place had it all at a great price for all day family fun. We got the Hog Wild pass to do a few extras and with those, my kids (9 and 12) never had a dull moment. There are games, a huge slide, slog shot, apple cannon, pain ball range, awesome play ground, cute pig races, good food… so much. And all of that except food and drink were included! And the drinks were half off refills with the souvenir cup! AND the awesome corn maze!!!! Such a fun and unique experience. You will not be disappointed.

    So much do do!
    There's so much to do here especially if you have kids. We took our 2 year old and I wasn't expecting to stay until nearly closing time but there was so much to do that we didn't want to leave! There's tons of animals to feed (you can buy cups of food for $3) and a corn maze with different levels of difficulty, a wagon/tractor tour of the farm, big slides, a big corn kernel pit for kids to play in...I could go on but there's a lot of things to keep kids entertained and all at a good price. We will definitely come back again when in the area.

    Happiest place in PA
    I just love this place and can’t say enough positive things. I wish I lived nearby and could go every weekend. Park is so clean, the workers love to work here and it shows, the bathrooms are immaculate. Great value and such a fun time.

    Way too busy on certain days
    Was waaayy too busy on a Tuesday of the back to school night? It looked like a lot of homeschooling families with both parents, large families. Total chaos. Too many people. The farm needs a tracker on the website to show how crowded the farm is. Too much. The farm is definitely targeted to the paying audience. Kids 3 and younger are free but a lot of the stuff there is too high with no step stools or benches. As simple as a bench at the water washing stand near the animal area - I had to lift my toddler way too many times at this farm. Food is also junk. Even popcorn has 3 artificial dyes added? I am fine getting my kids junky fare food once in a while but artificial dyes a hard no for me. We had to leave to get lunch. Sunday and Monday this farm is closed? If you are in the area for a long weekend, you better go on a Saturday (can’t even imagine how busy it is on a Saturday if it was total chaos on a Tuesday)

    Simply OUTSTANDING !!
    A great place for children thru teens. So much to do. Very accommodating to people who have difficulty walking which is really needed as this place is huge. So many activities including a corn house, which is like a mall house that kids can play in and crawl through. Definitely a place to check out.

    A Day of Fun in Amish Country
    This is our fourth visit to Cherry Crest and certainly not our last visit. Our kids absolutely love coming here for fun and the adults do too! We arrived at 11am and stayed until closing. There are so many new activities that have been added over the years. Plenty of "all you can play" carnival games, sports games, large and small slides, animals, and jumping pads. I enjoyed the pedal go carts and the hammocks to relax. I recommend coming early and spending the day here. It's worth every penny! If you are bored, it's your fault!

    Go early as so much to do. Bring hand sanitizer and flashlights
    We regretted that we arrived after lunch - we should have gotten there early as so much to do and see. Our grand kids ages 4, 8 and 10 loved the place. Bring hand sanitizer. Bring a flashlight for each person if staying after dark. Food is pretty good for an amusement park.

    Excellent!
    Wow, has this place grown! We used to come here when our now, adult sons, were little, and we loved it. Such sweet memories, because they always had such a good time here. It was fun then, but we were here last weekend for our great nieces 10th birthday, and we were in shock when we saw how much they have expanded! So nicely landscaped now! There is soooo much to do for the kids, you could easily spend 2 days if it is crowded. The admission price is very reasonable. $34.50 per person. That includes so many attractions. They do have paintball, which is extra, but notbsure of the price. We did not eat, so I don't know about the food prices. They have a couple of breweries and a winery there also. $10 for a glass of wine or wine slushy (the watermelon wine slushy was awesome). Beer was $8 a glass. Parking is free. If you have young kids, anywhere from, 2 to 15, don't hesitate to take them here. I can't wait to take our future grandkids here, and make more memories.

If you are concerned about Covid, I would definitely recommend Cherry Crest Farms when Covid is under control. Unfortunately, more than half of the guests were not wearing masks and it was too crowded for social distancing. There are some hand sanitizer stations but I would bring your own as well. They are not open on Sunday's which probably added to the Saturday crowd. There were long lines for food and to cross the railroad track.
We've gone several times over the years and there is a TON of things for the kids to do. The employees were friendly.
I would plan to go off season if you'd like to miss the crowds.

This has been a favorite place of ours for years. Unfortunately it has lost its charm and now caters to rowdy teenagers and adults who want to sit around campfires and drink.

Management should limit crowds, build more bathrooms and insist their staff deal with unruly teenagers and the madhouse they call Sproutville. The campfire smoke is also out of control, traveling across the open field and burning your eyes every time you go to the upper lot. The lines are extremely long for every single attraction, food vendor and bathroom.

They increased prices so much, it costs almost as much as an amusement park to get in. A complete disappointment and waste of money.

This is a fantastic place for children and even adults to enjoy. I am a local and have been at this attraction off and on through the years - ever since it opened. I had not been there for a number of years and I noticed wonderful new additions.
I had occasion to take my granddaughters using their Flex pass, which is a very nice bonus to the season pass. I was more than impressed by how well the whole area is kept in tip top condition - both the buildings and the grounds. The workers were all polite and friendly. There were so many activities for the children to do, that I think if you are local, a season pass is well worth it. As a grandma, I followed my girls around and everywhere we went there were nice benches to sit on. There were quite a number of places to purchase food and at each place there were picnic tables with umbrellas. I even noticed a row of long picnic tables reserved for school groups, etc. and again they were covered. The food we purchased, although a bit pricey, was delicious, especially the curly fries. (I think that is what they were called but they were crisp like chips). I think that Cherry Crest has thought of every possible activity centered around farm and country. The goats, sheep, chicks, rabbit, etc. are special for children to enjoy. Amusement parks are also fun, but at this place most everything is hands on and it was obvious the kids loved doing things themselves. My granddaughters built a log cabin with a window and door and table and stools inside. There was a fairly large children's "village" for young children, that looked like a lot of fun. The parking is free, which is a plus and you are allowed to bring food with you. It is also fun to see the Strasburg RR train chugging though Cherry Crest. The restrooms were plentiful and clean and nice. It seemed like a lot of the building were rather new. And to top it off, I loved the music they played throughout the day. We didn't even get into the Corn Maze, but I've been there years ago and that is also a fun experience.

Not just for kids!

This place really knocked our socks off!

We are an adult couple in our late 50s who decided to visit the Lancaster area for two days. We were looking for fun things to do, and honestly when we saw Cherry Crest Adventure Farm, it seemed like a kiddy place and we almost passed on it. The one thing that attracted us was the corn maze, and for that reason, we bought tickets in advance. The price was quite affordable.

We arrived close to 11:30am and by that time the park was filling up, but there was ample free parking which we quickly found. Once we entered the park, we went over to the barn areas and had a great time petting and feeding the various animals.

The highlight of our trip was the enormous corn maze. It is well worth the admission price and I have to warn you, it's no simple feat. You get three choices of challenges to take which range from 45 minutes to several hours. The one that takes several hours requires you to find a number of mailboxes hidden in the maze which give you game pieces that you tape on your playing sheet that are pieces of a full map that guide you to the exit. For the adventurer who has a lot of time on their hands, it will keep you busy for many hours.

For most people, I think the maze experience is a bit overwhelming and they will want to finish it quicker. It is extremely fun, but we went on an August Summer day where it was 80 degrees and even at that temperature, the sun is beating down hard and you sweat. Even wearing a cotton shirt, I was soaked in sweat. I was also parched rather quickly. There are water stations in the maze as well as a snack bar in its center. However, I think it's much better to do it in the Fall when it's cooler. As I mentioned, it's not easy and you will find yourself going in circles. That being said, if you need to leave the maze quickly, there are quick exits available or a guide will come to get you.

The rest of the park, for us two adults, was fun to walk through but we didn't pay extra to play the many games. We did make a point of climbing the steep hill, getting into a sack, and sliding down. That was a lot of fun!

Overall, a must-visit for families with kids. However, if you are adventurous adults, the corn maze is well worth visiting -- especially if you put several hours aside of your day to accept all its challenges.

We LOVE Cherry Crest farm! We have been coming for more than 15 years and our teens still love it. There's so much to do that we spent the entire day. It has grown over the years but for the better. It's clear that the staff takes great pride in maintaining this wonderful farm. We love every attraction/activity and did it all. We ended the day with the enormous but fantastic corn maze. So much fun!! We highly recommend this place for visitors of all ages. Also, we were nervous to attend a place with so many people during the pandemic but it was great. The staff took extensive precautions to keep guests healthy and safe (always wearing masks and cleaning everything) and most guests were good about either wearing masks or distancing from each other. It wasn't overcrowded and we felt like there was enough outdoor space for us to enjoy our day without risk.

We visited the farm last Saturday 5th June. The kids had a great time feeding the cows donuts and shooting apples in a cannon blaster. Jumping on the trampoline and playing with the baby animals. My son especially loved the view of the trains that pass from Strasburg Railroad They are cashless now and don’t take AMEX. So beware. You can buy tickets online at s discount from their website but be sure you check the right season. The food there is very good and we went for apple cider celebration so we took some to go.

great for families and kids of all ages. We were there for 8 hours with our grandkids and we did not get to everything. The staff is friendly and helpful and it is well worth the price of admission. The cost of souvenirs and food is extremely high but they do allow you to bring in your own food.

This is a great place to visit in the fall, but plan to be there all day. We spent 6 hrs and still didn't get to everything. For the 3rd tier admission, you get one ticket for the paintball, apple launcher, and nerf ball battle but anyone in your party can use them. It appears that you can bring your own food and drink but you have to get a grilled cheese. It's expensive but it will be the best grilled cheese you ever ate. Staff were all friendly. We will definitely be back next fall.

Cherry Crest has been a family go-to for years. It's been no less crowded throughout recent events, so come at your own risk. But there is so much to do that we have found plenty of options for a little fun while avoiding the more heavily populated areas. My little ones got a kick out of the farm animals, making their own jump ropes, and picking their own flower bouquets from a gorgeous field during our most recent spur of the moment visit. I love that most of the activities are good old fashioned, wholesome farm fun. There are little games and play areas splashed throughout if the waits ever look too long for the bigger attractions. We have never been at a loss for something to do or stuck with a terribly long wait.

It's always a relaxed, happy atmosphere at Cherry Crest. Staff is so pleasant and helpful every time we go. My mother once arrived to find her own wheelchair broken, and staff happily jumped through hoops to get her a scooter as fast as they could and make her comfortable. Extremely reasonable prices for everything. Our favorite family treat is renting out a campfire and spending the entire day. You get your own space and can set up a picnic or buy food and drinks from any of the numerous on-site locations. I can't recommend this enough for a one-stop PA Dutch experience with endless things to do from morning to night.
