There’s something in the whimsy of Halloween—from the tales of ghosts and ghouls to the joy of costumes—that seems to bring out the child in all of us.
Whether you’re a big kid or a little kid (or somewhere in between), you can certainly appreciate all the fall fun at these Centennial, CO, area pumpkin patches.

Depending on where you go to pick pumpkins this year, the corn maze (if there is one) may not pose enough of a challenge to even pay for. With 20+ acres of corn to work with, Maize in the City strives to make their labyrinth worth your while. They even have a customizable trivia game you can play on your phone to find your way through.
In addition to their maze and their pumpkin patch, Maize in the City features a number of other attractions such as their corn launcher, barrel ride, bouncers, and many more. You can easily spend the whole day there!
Mile High Farms | Connect on Facebook
The best carving pumpkins are those that have a bit of heft to them—pumpkins in which you have the space to carve a true masterpiece! Well, Mile High Farms sells pumpkins up to 40 pounds in weight, so you can rest assured that they’re pretty big.
An antique tractor will take you on a hay ride from the farm proper into the patch. Along the way, you’ll have a nice view of their many games and rides, such as the bouncy castle and the farmer’s playground. There’s also stages that will be hosting performers every weekend!
Rock Creek Farm | Connect on Facebook
The kiddos always seem to love picking their own pumpkins at Rock Creek Farm. However, they love all the farm animals here just as much. The adorable sheep, horses, pigs, and more are sure to make parents equally giddy. You’ll want to keep your cameras handy.
Rock Creek is known for its challenging corn mazes as well, particularly the Night Mazes it hosts. While there are no costumed ghouls jumping out at you, something about navigating the maze with only a flashlight to guide you may have you looking over your shoulder.
