While fall inevitably means that winter is coming, and I’m going to be cold for 4 months, it also brings SO much excitement to my family! Fall means Pumpkin Patch time! We Love exploring the Pumpkin Patches in our area each year. This year we were privileged to explore The Colorado Pumpkin Patch, which is definitely one of the best places for fall fun in the Colorado Springs Area!
While this pumpkin patch does not have “you pick ’em” pumpkins they do have a great fenced in area to close pre picked pumpkins. However, the gourds are honestly not the reason you come to this patch! There are so many fun activities for the kids that you could easily (and we did) spend the whole day here!
We headed to the massive slide first. We could have spend another 30 minutes here, but we couldn’t take any more of our 3 year old insisting we go down with him….while those bumps are ok for tiny butts they wreak havoc on adults!
Our next stop was the corn boxes, always a blast but make sure you clean out everyones pockets before you do laundry!
I was particularly impressed with some of the more inventive activities at this pumpkin patch, such as the Human Foos Ball
and Lazer Tag! This was the perfect place to ditch the kids and take a load off for us pooped parents! Our kids found tons of friends to shoot with and could have spent allday in this area.
We also really enjoyed the pumpkin shaped jump pillows,
and life sized board games such as Jenga, Tic-Tac-Toe, and Checkers.
Take note that the tractor and pony rides are rather costly and that prices are not clearly posted, we wanted for 30 minutes for pony rides and it was almost our turn when someone finally came around asking for $8 per 3 minute ride….This is definitely not feasible for our large family and I wish we had known before we wasted time in line.
Despite our pony ride set back, we had a wonderful time at the Colorado Pumpkin Patch! We brought our own lunch as we didn’t know what to expect, however there was plenty of food to purchase on site and next time I definitely want to try some of their creations!
