DixieMaze Farms Fall Spectacular

Posted: Updated:

Just north of Shreveport, there's been some sawing, cutting, painting, and even some trench digging going on. The cast and crew of Dixie maze farms have been preparing day and night for the fall haunting season. And like so many farms, it's no nine to five work day for these guys.

Getting our pathways all flattened out inside the maze. So people can get through nice and easy.

And the hard work of the team should make this fall tradition a great experience for kids and adults alike.

We're looking forward to a beautiful season. The fields are looking great. The maze is really looking great. Out here at Dixie maze farms there's already field trips coming in from the local areas And things really got going when it opened to the public this past weekend.

Visitors get a taste of farm life with hay rides, pony rides, a corn bin, and the petting zoo.

Now there's all kinds of things for kids to do out here at Dixie maze farms including interact with the animals. Some of those animals are cute and cuddley. Just like this little guy. Butterscotch. A nine week old rabbit.

Not all the animals are so cute and cuddly though.

Another one of the attractions out here today is this albino corn snake. Not one of my favorites.

The people holding the snakes...Did you like the snake? Yes. What about you deven? What did you like? The cow ride.

Pigs are also a favorite here on the farm, and they don't just wallow around.

One of our recurring attractions that everybody loves is our pig races. We have a great time watching those highly trained racing pigs do their thing. These pigs are not lazy. They definitely put on a show.

Then when night falls....you might want to go for a little walk

Now if you're looking for something that's a little more scary and spooky for the kids, there's the half mile long haunted trail. Now I can't tell you everything that's on the trail but it is bigger and better than years previous. The haunted trail is about a half mile long. Full of ghosts and goblins and ghouls and zombies that'll do their dangest to make you wet your pants. In the pitch of night, you come along a cemetery whose residents don't rest in peace. No, they like to get a little rambunctious. They like to kind of wander around and get into mischief.

To pack more spooky tricks into your trip, wander to the haunted maze.

The haunted maze is just like the corn maze. You can get lost. But there's hunters in there ready to scare you. And if you're into the un-dead, there's also zombie paintball

Zombie paintball is where we pretty much kill the zombie horror that's trying to attack our farm. Everybody there has paintball guns and they shoot every zombie.

If the zombies and chainsaws didn't make you screech in horror then take the plunge.

The zip line is a lot of fun. We built it cause we wanted to have an adventure activity.

The whole line is five hundred feet but you only zip down about four hundred feet.

About half the people that come up just walk the stairs back down. They won't even jump off.
