†Families looking for fall fun are heading toward Right Choices Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch in Southwest City, Mo.† Right Choices is opening for itís 5th season and offers many activities for folks of all ages.† The main attraction is the seven acre corn maze visitors can explore.† The hay ride along Elk River, corn cannon, and cow train ride for the kids are a few of the ways visitors can spend their visit.† Families will find hours of entertainment when playing in the corn box, sliding on the 40 ft. roller slide, racing rubber ducks, bouncing on the hay jump, playing pumpkin ball, and browsing among the pumpkins, fresh produce, and crafts in the pumpkin house.
†The maze is located on Manning Brothersí Elk River Farm, which has been in the family for 7 generations.† Visitors can climb to the loft of original 140-year-old barn to see the maze and enjoy the view. They can step back in time while watching aprons and bonnets being sewn on an old fashioned treadle sewing machine, and brooms being made from broom corn.
New for this year is a 200-person capacity music and wedding gazebo, which will be the location for gospel and contemporary Christian music concerts as well as a few fall weddings.† Other special events include an antique tractor show, horse drawn wagon rides, and pony rides.
The Maze isnít all about fun and games, itís also about giving back to the community.† A portion of the sales from October 30 and 31 will be given to ACHE Dental Clinic, which provides low cost dental care for families in need.
† Maze owners Galen and Barbie Manning have focused on creating a safe, fun environment for families to enjoy together.
