Review: The Pumpkin Wagon

Written by Jessica Spears, Creative Manager


The Pumpkin Wagon

Monday – Friday Open Noon – Dusk

Saturday – Sunday Open 10am-Dusk

Special Activities on the Weekends

     Fall is here and who isn’t ready for some pumpkin fun? Right here in Elizabethtown, (only 3.2 miles past Target), The Pumpkin Wagon has something for everyone.

     My family had the opportunity to visit The Pumpkin Wagon on a Thursday evening. My daughter is almost 3yrs old, so I wasn’t sure if they would have activities to entertain her. Boy was I surprised! Upon arriving, (which it was very easy to find, located directly off St. John Rd), my daughter spotted the kiddie hay-bale maze. She really enjoyed running through the maze and showing mommy and daddy the “right way” to walk through it.


She also enjoyed the kiddie slide, and of course the picnic tables when she was ready to take a break!


     In addition to the play area, the entire grounds at The Pumpkin Wagon was set up beautifully. There are many areas to take fall pictures. We were there around 5:30pm, and it was the perfect time to take pictures; the sunset was beautiful.






We continued our fall-fun evening by walking through their corn-maze. My daughter was happy to take the lead and show us the best way to get through the maze.


Following the corn-maze, we headed over to pick out our pumpkins. The Pumpkin Wagon had a great variety of sizes of pumpkins and gourds, and not to mention their prices are great! The small pumpkins (white & orange) started at only $1. My favorite size was their medium pumpkins (the perfect size for carving), and they were only $3 each. They also offered other fall items such as mums, corn stalks (only $3), sweet potatoes, winter squash, hay bales and mini decorative pumpkins. Wagons were provided for use while picking out pumpkins, which was not only convenient, but fun for my daughter.


     The Pumpkin Wagon is right here in Elizabethtown and provided an evening of fun for my entire family. Did I mention that ALL activities were FREE? The staff was super-friendly and helpful. The area was very clean and kid-friendly. It’s a must visit location if you’re looking for family-friendly fun in Elizabethtown.
