Kraay Family Farm is a local business in Lacombe that is located just west of town on Range Road 1. They started their farm and corn maze in 1999, from then on their farm has grown. In 2012 the farm won a Guinness World Record for the Largest Corn Maze at 29 Thousand m². They now have 34 activities to do and see at their farm including; jumping pillows, a grain train, pig races, miniature golf, Stalk car Raceway, pumpkin cannon, gemstone mining, giant games and of course the corn maze with 3 phases. Some of the activities do cost tokens which can be bought; 1 token for $1.00, 10 for $9.00 and 25 for $20.00. These extra activities include; the grain train (2 tokens), corn/ pumpkin blaster (1 token per shoot), Hi Striker (1 token for 3 hits) and Shootout at the Oak Corral (4 tokens per game)
This year the corn maze is in celebration of 50 years of “It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”. This year the corn is almost 10 ft tall, so it will be easy from everyone both big and small to get lost in the corn. But don’t worry if you remember to grab your passport you can find numbers in the maze and if you get the answer to the question correct then you have a little extra help finding your way out of the maze!
Kraay Family Farm is open from end pf July until the end of October. The best time to go to the maze is in August as it is still the warm weather and the corn is at its tallest. They also have rentals on the farm so you can make the most of your time there, for the little ones they have wagons ($2.00) so they can ride when they get tired from running through the maze. They also have tent rentals ($30.00 per hour) which includes 3 picnic tables, and 1 serving table, and BBQ rentals ($10 each) which includes the propane and utensils. This is great for birthday parties, or a great day activity for family gatherings. There are also multiple places on site where you can buy food, drinks, snacks and even souvenirs and gifts.
You can start your day of fun in the summer (until September 5, 2016) at 10:30 am until 8:00 pm Monday- Saturday. And on Labour day 10:30 am- 6:00 pm. In the Fall (September 6- October 22, 2016) the fun starts at at 4:00pm- 8:00pm Tuesday-Thursday, 10:30 am- 6:00 pm Friday- Saturday and on Thanksgiving Monday 10:30am-6:00pm. But don’t worry the closing time is the time the Ticket booth closes you can still play at the farm 1 hour after the ticket booth closes!
