6 Things to Do at Kyker Farms This Fall
Once you start to see the leaves changing colors and pumpkins lining the streets, you know that fall has arrived in the Smoky Mountains. There are many great events and attractions to visit during this time of year in the Smokies. One of those places is Kyker Farms in Sevierville. There are multiple different activities your family can enjoy as you bring in the fall season. Here are 6 things you can do when you visit Kyker Farms:
1. Corn Mazes
There are five different mazes that you and your family can attempt to navigate through at the farm. One of the most amazing things is that each maze is designed by a different member of the Kyker family. The farm has been owned and operated by the family for nine generations and over 200 years! The fact that they create new mazes each year for guests to enjoy is incredible! Each maze will force you to make decisions on which direction will lead you to the eventual exit. Don’t get too frustrated when you end up in another dead end, just go back and try again until you find your way out of the maze!
2. Thrilling Hayrides
There is nothing that puts you in the fall spirit quite like a hayride. Hop aboard the trailer and take your seat on a bale of hay. From there, you will be taking on a joy ride through the farm by way of a tractor. Not only can you take a fun hayride during the day, if you come back in the evening there is an additional bonus. That is when you can take part in the Zombie Paintball Adventure. Each person on the hayride is armed with their own gun and a limited supply of paintballs. As you make your way along the trail, you will see people dressed up as zombies dancing in the field, that is when you start firing your paintballs to try and take out the zombies! This is a fun attraction that the whole family will love!
3. Haunted Trail
When you think of corn mazes in the fall, one of the first things that comes to mind is a haunted adventure. Kyker Farms has one of the best haunted trails that you will find in the area. If you are feeling brave, try and make your way through the maze while being scared from all angles! The best thing about haunted corn mazes is that you never know where the next jump scare is going to occur. When you visit the farm this fall, be sure to take part in the haunted trail if you dare!
4. Corn Hole
Test out your accuracy at Kyker Farms with a family game of corn hole. It is one of the best outdoor activities for the whole group to enjoy. Plus, there are certain bragging rights up for grabs if you can beat the other members of the family. If you’d rather not play, you can sit around the warm bonfire while you watch everyone else.
5. Kyker’s Korn Hopper
The Korn Hopper is one of the unique things that is offered at the farm. It is a large bouncing pillow that kids of all ages will love! If you need something that will take some of the extra energy out of your child, just let them jump around on the trampoline pillow for a little while! There are workers around the bouncing pillow at all times to ensure that children follow the rules and stay safe!
6. Pumpkin Patch
There is no other fall tradition quite like heading out to the pumpkin patch to pick out your own pumpkin. Whether you plan to use it for decoration, a jack-o’-lantern, or just as a fun souvenir, you will enjoy the experience of picking your own pumpkin out of the hundreds to choose from. This is especially a great activity if you have young children. Not only will they enjoy the hayride to the pumpkin patch, but the thrill on their face when they see that one special pumpkin will make it worth it!
