Cox's Farm Opening Weekend

Need something fun to do outside this weekend? Cox's Farm has it all to get you excited for Fall. Their Opening Weekend is this weekend, the 18-19th. From the zoo animals to numerous slides and hay rides and mazes, it's the place to be when the weather is great.

Cox's Farm gets extremely busy very early, so if you want to avoid waiting in line for rides or feeling like you're at a high time amusment park on a Saturday, then get there well before the place opens. There are two rides that are by far the best ones there. One is on the far left back corner of the farm. It's their biggest slide and gets the most attraction. The next one is when you walk in it'll be to the left. You have to go through a "barn" to get to the top. It's a short slide, but it's got a sidewinder feel to it.
