Fantozzi Farms Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch
2665 Sperry Ave, Patterson, CA 95363
At Fantozzi Farms Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch “Our corn mazes are designed to be enjoyed by all ages! For our younger maze guests, we have a kiddie-sized maze which includes a game titled “Farm Scene Tracks”. This is the perfect game for 2 to 8-year-olds. They will search for the animal who stole Farmer Joe’s pie and learn about animal tracks in the process. It is a tactile game that adds to the fun of the maze while allowing them the thrill of solving a mystery.
In our next larger maze, we have a game titled “Farm Scene Investigation”. In this game, maze guests look for clues to discover who kidnapped Farmer Joe. To do so, guests will look for six location scenes hidden in the maze. At each location scene, guests will find a picture of a suspect, a weapon, and a location. To discover who kidnapped Farmer Joe, guests must find all six hidden location scenes and thus eliminate six of the seven animal suspects. Once the mystery is solved, guests will receive a Farm Scene Investigation badge to wear proudly!
Entrance to our pumpkin patch is always FREE. We grow a large variety of pumpkins and decorative gourds! Prices for pumpkins range from $3-$25.Bundles of corn stalks can also be purchased (12 stalks per bundle).”
