Enjoy Some Fall Fun at One of These Sinking Spring Activities

October 18th, 2018 by

The Sinking Spring residents and neighbors have a great lineup of activities during this fall season. The activities range from small local events for kids and families to large national affairs that attract visitors from all over the country. Check out these three fall events in the Sinking Spring area.

Duncan’s Corn Maze

For some outdoor fun and quality time with your family, head to the Duncan’s Corn Maze, open from Aug. 31 through Nov. 11. Winding through seven acres of cornfield, the corn maze has plenty to do for everyone. Besides getting lost and trying to find their way out of the maze, visitors can relax next to a bonfire and savor roasted hot dogs and marshmallow.

For a quiet time in the country, enjoy a leisurely stroll through the pumpkin patch and look for the pumpkin to carve. The maze is also available for group parties and hayrides. Kids 5 years of age or under get in for free; everyone else pays $8.


Since its first opening in 1991 at Willow Glen Park, Shocktoberfest quickly turned into an annual haunted affair and a popular holiday destination for families in the mid-Atlantic region during fall. Shocktoberfest began as a single hayride; today, it includes 13 attractions and several weekend events and lasts over two months.

One of the popular attractions at the Shocktoberfest is the Zombie Safari Hayride, which allows visitors an up-close encounter with zombies from a Zombie Safari Vehicle. Guests can upgrade their ride with the Paintball Option and keep the creatures away with a loaded paintball.

The Shocktoberfest’s primary attraction is the Prison of the Dead. This haunted house covers over 50,000 square feet of space in a two-story building and is the largest on the East Coast. To get to this ultimate haunted house, visitors must first take a ride on a prison bus. The tour lasts about half an hour and often involves crawling.

Check out the Monster Midway, a 27-acre Screampark, to enjoy some delicious food, play fun games, and see classic side performances all night long.

For extreme haunted house experience, consider the Almost Naked and Scared Challenge and take the tour wearing nothing but your underwear. To participate in this activity, visitors must be 18 or older.

Ticket prices for activities range between $20 and $70.

Fall Family Fun Days

From mid-September until the end of October, come to the Weaver’s Orchard for Fall Family Fun Days. The festival features live music, food from various vendors, animal petting zoo, hayrides, and slides. Visitors will be able to pick their own fruit, compete in the obstacle course, try their hand at pumpkin painting, and have a laugh with the clown.

The tickets are $5 for adults, $10 for children ages 3 through 12, and free for kids under 3 years of age.

Whether you need a shot of adrenaline at a haunted house or to get some calm in nature, you will find your perfect activity at one of these events.
