Gordie’s Review (8 years old): “I liked the carts the best but would like to try the extra things”
Nicky’s Review (5 years old): “I liked all the things. And the bouncy castles and seeing Moana.”
Robbie’s Review (2.5 years old): “We go there again? Pumpkin bouncy castle!”
Overall: Cobbs Corn Maze opened in NE Calgary in mid August of 2013. We visited on a warm Sunday in Mid-October. We opted to get regular admission for everyone and didn’t do any of the premium activities on this visit.
Cobb’s Adventure Park sometimes hosts special activities such as character visits. While we were there Moana and Rapunzel were there for photo ops – free with regular admission.
They also had pumpkins available for purchase.
Regular admission activities
Bouncy Castles: There were 8 different kinds of inflatable bouncy castles. This area is included with regular admission and one of the highlights for my kids. On particularly windy days this area may be closed.
Corn Mazes: Corn Mazes in Calgary can be a little hit and miss depending on the growing season. This year was a hard year for corn mazes so the maze was a bit short this year.
They define the path with coloured tape so you can still find your way around. We had a fun time navigating the corn maze regardless. There was also a rope maze that we didn’t get to that you can access from the mid way point in the tractor ride.
Barnyard Games and Puzzles: There are a number of different little games, puzzles and mini mazes. They aren’t particularly fancy or elaborate, but my kids enjoyed trying them out.
Play Area: This area is primarily aimed at younger kids with a few slides and a couple play features like a car and little house.
Tractor Ride The ride is a 15-20 minute ride through the Corn Maze and over to a Rope Maze. You can get off at the halfway point or continue back in the loop.
Pedal Carts: This was one of the highlights for our kids. There are a few different kinds of pedal carts – including single riders and carts where you can go with your kids.
With the purchase of ‘kernels’ (essentially tickets) or a bought the farm admission, you can get access to the park’s premium activities. This includes a climbing tower, spider climb, funballz,
black light mini golf, blaster balls, ropes course,
and the Kangaroo petting zoo.
Overall we had a nice time at Cobb’s Adventure Park. We ended up spending about half a day and were able to easily fill out time without the premium activities.
If your kids are a bit older or you are planning on staying longer, you will probably want to include at least some of the premium activities in your visit. One of the best things about Cobb’s is how close it is to the NE side of the city.
