“Better than expected!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We went there with three children aged 14, 12 and 11 not sure if this would be too 'kiddish" for them. We didn't regret going. My husband had the best time...he became the kid. The buildings were all in great condition. The grounds were clean and well kept. The activities were many and for all ages. We walked thru the discovery barn, my daughters best part was holding days old chicks. Our favourite activities were in the barnyard, we did cabin buildin, giant slinger, racer and slide, big ball coral, baseball, basketball, football etc...different and fun. Giant pillow is always a favourite for our girls. We enjoyed some fresh lemonade, sweet corn and pretzels.We decided to do the Advance challenge in the corn maze...what a blast, we were the best time for that day...at least by the time we left :) Total cost 75$. a little steep but for some good clean fun and very well kept grounds and games...worth it!

“Great fun”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We usually stop at the farm from the railroad, but this trip we decided to just drive to the farm. We got there just at 10am. Parking was easy and the lot is big enough for plenty of cars. A family of 4. 2 adults, 2 children. It cost us $60 to get in.

It has been a few years since our last visit here. They have added so many more attractions since then. We spent several hours here. The kids (and adults) had so much fun. Tractor go karts, the slides, the bounce pad. The tour of the farm from a tractor was very interesting.

We skipped the corn maze this trip. We usually travel in the fall and do that. This years theme was a pirate ship.

The farm was very clean and the workers there work hard to make everyone have fun. The only thing I did not like was the bus loads of campers coming in. They thought they were running the place. My son wanted to go into the haybale dark maze. He had to keep coming out because the kids in front of him (these campers) would go in and only want to come out. This went on for several minutes without the adults saying anything to them. I finally told me son "come on we will come back later when these camp kids are done".

The farm barn animals were cute. They had a baby goat be born the day before. They had some pigs, goats, baby chicks, honey bees, lama, and chickens.

We didn't eat at the farm, but they had plenty of shaded tables to eat under. I don't know if there is a policy if they allow you to bring food in or not. We did see a few people at tables with their own lunches. We did buy a bottle of gatorade ($2.75)

Had a great day. We will be back!

“Truly "a-mazing"”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Returning for our 17th year my son (age 21) and I completed the maze, wandered thru the other attractions and had lunch. The food is excellent. I love the maze challenge and the different theme each year. A family tradition

“We have gone every year since 1995- The year they openned”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Every year our family ventures to cherry crest farm. My wife and myself have gone every year since 1995,
This years was no different when it comes to the corn maze itself.. challenging thought pervking, and the way we like it very hot . With the corn maze in th emiddle of amish country, there are many things to do.. , but the corn maze is our favorite.... And its not just trying to get out of the maze, there are different challenges, from a basic walk through... all the way to the finding eveery peace of the puzzle that you need to find, which we accomplished again.. There are clues along the way, and you carry a flag so if you neeed help you can let someone know...You can spend on average 2 hours in the maze, but we have been in for as much as 3 and a half.. This visit we managed in un just 2 hours, getting all peaces and finding the way out....

There are many surprises in the maze itself, including two portapotties and a snack bar....I do reccommend you eat before you go in. There is a short orientation prior to entering, and there are plent of other things to do while you are there, such as pedal carts, balloon bounce, petting zoo, and many other things.. They can do group outtings as well.. Don't forget the fall with the flashlight maze.. That is a blast.....

This is our favorite activity in Lancaster County, and never miss it, and admission is only 15.00 per person, fpr all the activites included.. We will definetly go back.

“Great Family Fun”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

My 2 children aged 10 and 6 loved it here. There was things that both of them could enjoy. They loved the corn maize, slides, animals, tractor rdie and games. They would love to come again. It is a bit pricey but not anymore pricey than going to the movies and with this you get a whole day of fun.
