“Whoever does their website is not paid enough”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

The website makes this place look wonderful. We drove an hour to visit on Easter Sunday afternoon and so the kids could participate in the egg hunt, paid $45 for a family of 4. The kids were really looking forward to all the baby animals the website talks about. There were none. Their total sum of animals were 5 dilapidated goats, 2 sheep, and maybe 10 chickens and a peacock in the same cage. Then we went on the hayride and got to see the "ruins". The ruins I suppose must have been the bathtub and old sewing machine and other garbage elegantly arranged into scenic vistas along the path, along with some weird purple furry gorilla stuck on a rock. Oh, and then a couple more goats they had trapped into the caged off pumpkin pens to eat all the rotting pumpkins. It was disgusting. If it hadn't been that my kids were looking forward to the (also ridiculous) egg hunt I would have turned around and demanded my money back. I wasn't surprised a bit when they gathered everyone around for the egg hunt and the woman asked how many were first timers. EVERY one was. That's because nobody is dumb enough to go back to this place a second time.

“Ticonderoga Farms is a Rip-Off, Boring”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Visited Ticonderoga Farms this past weekend. Firstly, it is way out in the middle of no-where (cow-poop farmland) and takes 45-minutes to 1-hour to reach. The attraction charges a grossly overpriced $15.00 per-person, even for children over age-2 (who in their right mind feels that 3-year old should pay $15 to enter a pasture/field?). There were very few activities for small children (despite gouging money from them), and my daughter wanted to depart almost immediately after we arrived. The slides and activities were dirty, unkempt, poorly managed and staffed. The staff were rude, overbearing, and dictatorial (instead of helpful). We were very bored with this whole attraction, and felt really cheated by their operation. Obviously, the Owner/Builder has used his large cow pasture to build a boring attraction, and then built himself a huge mansion of a house across the street with all money that he bilked his visitors out of. I strongly recommend that everyone should avoid this place like the plague and go somewhere that is actually good value for money and fun.

“Fall at Ticonderoga - Oct 1 -Weekday”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The big hit was the slides, the swinging bridge, the petting zoo, and the hayride through Crocodile Lake:) We came on a Monday after school, so it was around 2 when we got in. The price for a weekday was 8.95 for anyone 2 and over. I think it was pretty pricey considering they did not have the trampoline open, nor one of the high slides. Their Haunted house was NOT a hit with the kids, they used to have a bigger one and they cramped it all in half the space. There was no concession stands open. Lots of gnats!!! Anyway, I think all the kids had a pretty good time.

“Great Relaxation Time”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

My husband and I took our three daughters to the farm for the first time this weekend. Dad's were free for father's day and my youngest daughter was under two so she was also free! Talk about a good deal! Anyways we had a terrific time. The girls loved the bouncy pillow and slides. They enjoyed the hayride although it was a little plain with not too many sights to see but lots of tall grass. There was also a band playing while we were there which added to our entertainment while we watched our little ones play. Overall we had a great time and might have a birthday party here soon!

“Spring Festival at Ticonderoga Farm”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

We took our 5 year old grandson on a weekday during spring break. Driving in we passed an incredibly long wall made of huge boulders, stacked on top of each other. We were fascinated by it. Apparently the owner lives somewhere on the other side of that wall. We got there late morning and a couple of camp groups were eating lunch on some of the numerous picnic tables. Otherwise, there were very few people there. We roasted some marshmallows ($.50 for a bag of 8) in the firepit. Spent some time on a large hill with multiple slides, short ones for little kids and a couple bumpy ones for the more adventurous. We saw another hill for slides under construction in another area. Checked out the chickens and goats and peacocks on our way to the hayride, the highlight of which was going through the stream at the end. Our grandson loved the long swing bridge that you could rock enough to dip into the water. Maybe because Grandpa called it the Bridge of Doom. We "found" frogs camouflaged in and around one of the streams and startled a couple into the water before we even saw them. Enjoyed the bamboo maze, climbing up into a wooden fort, a loooong game of tether ball and some laughs on a swing hanging from a log.
There is not a ton of stuff to do here, but we still spent 3 hours and had a lot of laughs. It looks like more is under construction.

I'd definitely recommend it for younger kids, there is plenty of room to run.

On the day we were there no food was available for purchase besides the marshmallows and some chips. We brought a picnic lunch and the car was close enough to be able to leave it in the car till we needed it.
