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.

BYU vs Utah. I'd definitely be going through the BYU side. We love Cornbelly's. Ok, really my kids love Cornbelly's. I can take it or leave it personally but they have so much fun there and like you said, I love that it's good old fashioned fun.

Kristal said...

So, we're missing the big fall festival here so this would be a super fun way to spend a day! I've never been to thanksgiving point but it's on my Utah bucket list:). Since the theme is the u vs the y I'd have to say your boys are smart;). I'd go in with them on the u side...we're in aggie land in Logan and sadly we lost last night.,,,so I can't support the y;)

BYU vs the u! I actually have never taken my kiddos but it looks super fun!

The theme is the BYU/U of U rivalry. I'm so glad you reviewed cornbelly's! I have a 20 month old and didn't think there would much to do with her there this year but it looks like there are plenty of things she would like so we'll definitely take her. Thanks!
