To help your night run smoothly, please follow the directions below:

  • Remove your children immediately from the parking lot area and go directly to the entrance of the zoo. If you will be waiting for additional children to arrive, please have a prearranged waiting area. The pumpkin patch is perfect (any area by the parking lot is prohibited.)
  • Each child/adult must be wearing a wristband before entering the zoo.
  • Upon entering the zoo, pick a campfire or picnic table for your group’s designated meeting area.
  • At the end of the evening, we ask that everyone exit through the “group exit.” At that time, every guest will receive a free pie pumpkin, compliments of the Johansen family.

A few things to remember:

  • The zoo is surrounded by cornstalks and no child is permitted to leave without an adult. Therefore, your children are in a safe environment.
  • The corn maze, zoo area, hay ride and the 2-story air slides are open all evening. If there is a line at any of these attractions, we suggest you try something else and return later. There will be plenty of time to do everything.
  • Feed for the animals is $0.25 (sorry—no outside feed for the animals is allowed in the zoo)
  • Kids like to use flashlights in the “amazing corn maze.”
  • Make sure you dress appropriately for the weather.
  • Campfires are shared in order to allow you to get to know the other troops.

If Johansen Farms has to cancel this event due to weather, the troops and their guests may utilize their wrist bands any day through October 31st, 2015 from 9am – 7pm. SORRY, NO REFUNDS ON PURCHASED WRIST BANDS. FULLY INSURED.
