Soapbox Saturday - Cornbelly's

This post is meant for Utah locals, as it is about Cornbelly's - a local attraction.

A couple of weeks ago I was offered free tickets to Cornbelly's, the corn maze and pumpkin fest held at Thanksgiving Point.  I had never gone before and I thought it would be fun to take the boys out for some fun.  My sister and two of my nieces joined us and we went off to see what it was all about.

I knew there was a corn maze and I knew there were several other attractions, but I was amazed at how much there actually was to do there.  The place is covered with fun photo ops, loads of playground-type equipment, and lot of farm-type fun as well.

What I liked the most about it was that it was simple, old-school fun.  There weren't rides with flashing lights, but rather potato sack slides.  I love that.

My boys loved it too.  The duck racing was Baden's favorite.

The corn maze itself is pretty cool.  The theme this year is based on the local college rivalry.  The kids all chose their sides :)

Now, I must admit that I am really directionally challenged.  We spent most of our time in the maze quite lost....

....but the kids were excited just to walk through the corn.

We were determined to be victorious....

...but Rex finally declared that we were going to have to sleep there that night.

Beside the maze, there were a ton of things to do.  The boys liked the air pillow.  There were pedal carts, tractor rides, pig races, and lots more.  There were also a few activities you could do if you wanted to spend a little more money, like a climbing wall, mechanical bull, and face painting.  They was also fun food for purchase.

We spent about 2.5 hours there, but we probably could have stayed double that amount of time.  We happened to be there on a freezing cold day and I had little Elsa with us, so we didn't last longer than that.

So, we definitely give Cornbelly's two thumbs up.  Today we're giving away two Screamin' Passes.  To enter, leave a comment telling me what the theme of this year's corn maze is.  I'll announce the winner Monday.
