Well, it's been a busy week with Marching Band wrapping up (except for playoffs). I wanted to tell you all about the fun we had at Camp Fontanelle and give you a discount so you can go, too. They are open 1-7 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays through November 3. There are also some special event days and times so check their calendar for full details. (Check out movie nights and scary maze nights.) I want you to make sure you get your discount so be sure to print this coupon and save some money there. My mom likes that they keep prices down so we can do more for less money. Admission is only $6 adults and $4 for kids.
First we went into the corn maze as they had trick or treating in the maze that day. I managed to photo bomb a picture of Rebekah.
Then we saw some of the 'creepy guys' that are throughout the maze for the Scary Maze nights. You go through in the dark and there are these fake guys followed by real ones who jump out at you.
The main event for us that we had been waiting to do was the Laser Tag in the corn maze. They use a headband and so you take head shots to score. These lasers even have a light scope on them so you can get a better aim at your target. I got Nathan while he posed for a picture.
Rebekah is serious about this...her headband wouldn't stay up at first so--go figure, she hardly got shot.
My mom managed to catch this awesome photo down the scope of Rebekah taking aim. And with Laser Tag only costing $3 per person for a 10 minute adventure, we got to go a couple times. It was a blast.
Camp Fontanelle is just past Nickerson, NE (just north of Fremont) and we have had more fun there than I can describe. There's a corn maze (short and long tracks), laser tag in another small corn maze, jumping pillow, snacks, hayrack ride, petting zoo, fire pits, zip line, trike track, bounce houses, and much more. My dad didn't get to go with us, but my brother, sister, mom and I had a blast. The snacks are only $1 each except S'mores Kits and caramel apples. We got s'mores kits and roasted marshmallows over the free fire pits. They even have a whole rack of roasting sticks you can use (no additional charge). I like the petting zoo so while mom watched Rebekah jump on the jumping pillow, Nathan and I went to the petting zoo. We spent time letting the geese and ducks get to know us. Nathan was pretty nervous for a long time and stayed outside of the gate. Eventually, he came in but stayed away from the birds. By the end, he was walking right up to them and petting them. I didn't get any good pictures of Nathan with the ducks and geese, but all animals are hard for him. He doesn't like it if they move to fast--it spooks Nathan. He doesn't really like petting them or getting licked by them and he really does not want to hold them. But I helped him and got a picture of him holding a rabbit and feeding an alpaca. He actually let the alpaca lick the food off his hand without flinching. He's even smiling in this picture.
I also got a picture of my sister on the trike track. She had a good time on it...although she's getting to the height limit. Disclosure: I received free passes in exchange for my honest review.
