Remember how we said Great Pumpkin Fest is now bigger and better than ever? It's because we've expanded into two additional areas in the park! Get an extra helping of Snoopy and the whole PEANUTS gang as they host the all-new Great Pumpkin Fest Activity Trail, complete with a challenge course, corn maze, hay bale maze, games, crafts and much more.
