-- HOPE (Western Cranston), Rhode Island— Confreda’s fall activities have become a Rhode Island tradition, and this year is the one to top them all! Families come from miles around to enjoy kiddie rides, our outdoor food court, and FREE hayrides to our pumpkin patch where you can pick your own pumpkin. This year we’ve added a brand new fall attraction, the MAiZE.
The MAiZE at Confreda’s opens September 15, 2012, with a special day of games, prizes, and a special appearance by Samboni, the Providence Bruins mascot! This 10-foot-high corn maze is an interactive attraction with learning activities for kids, challenges for adults, and FUN for all ages! The MAiZE is carved out of a cornfield the size of 6 football fields, and its design incorporates the state of Rhode Island with special graphics celebrating Confreda’s 90th anniversary. All of this space allows for a full list of games including scavenger hunts, specialty passport tours, and CornText, a system that sends you clues once you find a number in the maze to text. You don’t just tour the MAiZE…you experience it.
The MAiZE is a new and exciting part of Confreda’s annual Fall Fun Fest. Weekends from mid-September through the end of October, our MAiZE, hayrides, and kiddie rides will be open from 10am-6pm (last ticket sold at 5pm). From 11am-6pm you can enjoy the outdoor food court full of carnival treats --popcorn, doughboys, candy apples, and more!
The MAiZE is open for parties and school tours by reservation only. Whether it be a private party, corporate training event, or a fundraising event, the MAiZe offers a unique setting and activity to bring people together for some good, old-fashioned fun. There are also plenty of learning activities to make the MAiZE as educational as it is fun for school tours. For more information on tours and parties, visit our website. Our events calendar carries a complete list of fall events.
