The “ultimate” Halloween adventure is at Dell’Osso Family Farms.

The Pumpkin Maze and assorted attractions including a haunted house are open for two more days including Halloween on Tuesday.

While the Pumpkin Maze just finished its last weekend with massive crowds, that’s not the case on Halloween. The crowds thin out as the sun sets on Halloween adding a tad to ambiance of navigating the corn maze by moonlight or flashlight.

“We don’t do anything special on Halloween except give out free candy at the general store,” noted Susan Dell’Osso.

General admission tickets are $13.95 per person with early bid entry before 2 p.m. $10.95 per person. Children 2 years old and under are free. Times are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. (last entry) with attractions starting to close at 9 p.m.  All tickets are sold only on the premises.

General admission includes unlimited access to the corn maze, haunted castle, the scarecrow ride with an international theme this year, Dell’Osso Express Train, hay ride, mystery tour, giant pumpkin ball races, tire pyramid, Dell’Osso Speedway pedal cars, petting zoo, ball shoot arena, lawn games, walking the plank, super slide, kiddie play land, kiddie Ferris wheel, kiddie coaster, kiddie swings, spinning pumpkins, pillow jumping, and children’s interactive critter. 

The attractions that have separate prices is the gem mining for $6, pumpkin blasters for $6, zip lines for $8 to $12, pony rides for $6, and pumpkin painting for $5. Food, merchandize, pumpkins and season gifts are available for purchase and not included in the general admission. parking is free.
