Located just an hour’s drive northwest of Chicago, Richardson Adventure Farm has become an annual destination for family fun, with a new 28-acre maze every year, plus more than 30 activities, including wagon rides, pig races, a vintage carousel and a “park train” that runs on real tracks. Most of the activities are included in the admission fee with a few (such as the zip line and “Orb” rides) cost extra. Private picnic sites with campfires and firewood are available by reservation, and there’s free parking.
This year Richardson’s added a heated tent near the pig races and train depot, serving wine, beer and hot chocolate with schnapps, plus live music on most weekend afternoons.
Admission in September: $17 for ages 13 and up, and $14 for ages 4-12;
October/November weekend prices are $19 for ages 13 and up and $16 for ages 3-12.
Free for ages two and under.
