An Enormous Inflatable Pumpkin Patch in Maine is the Ultimate Fall Escape
If you grew up watching Charlie Brown and Linus prepare for the Great Pumpkin's appearance only to be disappointed, you may be stuck believing that Halloween dreams for kids don't come true. That might not be the case in Maine, because a farm in New Gloucester has unleashed the ultimate fall escape that nobody realized they needed: an enormous inflatable pumpkin patch that serves as an outdoor bounce house.
Shared on Facebook by Chipman's Pumpkin Patch, the unique attraction is up and running each weekend in October, right next to the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village in New Gloucester. Before any adults get too giddy and start bouncing around the house themselves, the inflatable pumpkin patch is for kids only. But that doesn't mean that adults can't stand around and dream what it'd be like to be a kid again.
Beyond the giant inflatable pumpkin patch, there's a bunch of other family-friendly things to do at Chipman's as well. Their farm includes hay tunnels, pedal carts, a corn maze, a Scooby-Doo-themed bounce house, and a tractor ride to the actual pumpkin patch, where everyone can pick their own pumpkin. All the activities at Chipman's Pumpkin Patch are geared towards children.
Chipman's Pumpkin Patch is open on the weekends only. They're open from 11am-5pm (weather permitting) each weekend through October. Admission is $10 child, and that includes a pumpkin from the patch. Adults and children under 2 do not have to pay an admission charge.
