Join Pack 99 for an afternoon of fun at Hall Family Farm

WHAT: Pack 99 Outing at the Hall Family Farm - all Cub Scout parents/guardians and siblings are welcomed to join.

WHERE: 10713 Providence Rd W, Charlotte NC 28277 (Meet at the main building where you purchase tickets)


WHEN: Saturday Oct 20th at 1:00 pm (The farm is open from 9 am to 10 pm, but the Pack will meet at 1:00.  We will need to purchase tickets and will depart into the corn maze around 1:15)


COST:   There are many activities at the farm, below is a breakdown of the pricing:


Corn Maze only:
Ages 3 and up – $8 + tax
Ages 2 and under are FREE

Combo Ticket (Corn Maze and Hayride-save 10% vs buying them separately)
Ages 3 and up – $10 + tax

Ages 2 and under are FREE



DETAILS:
The Hall Family Farm corn maze theme this year is based on “80's Rock - Rock of Ages".  The corn maze is taking people 45-90 minutes to get through it and build the complete map. Bring your smart phone with a QR code reader (iHandy Quickscan for iPhone, QRDroid for Android works well) or Snapchat works too. You will be challenged with 80's rock questions to successfully complete the map. If you don't have a smartphone or don't want to do the smartphone challenge, we have a paper and pencil version you can do in the maze.


The maze covers over 5 acres of land and features over 2 miles of interconnecting pathways and is sure to keep your family entertained!  You will also have access to the other family friendly activities we have available at the farm. Come pick a pumpkin, try our mini mazes, have a picnic, race the ducks with old-fashioned water pumps, or relax with a slushie and a sing-a-long hayride.
