Time for a fall retreat! Great places for your campus org to visit

The MAiZe

8657 Axe Handle Rd, Milford Center OH

Recommended by Off The Lake Productions

Off The Lake Productions (OTL) has a five-year standing tradition at The MAiZE along Little Darby Creek. Other than the esteemed haunted corn maze, the fall getaway includes classic carnival food like hot dogs and donuts, hot chocolate, team games like dodgeball and paintball, cutouts for pictures, homemade souvenirs, a freaking pumpkin cannon, and best of all: the Cow Train.

“Riding the Cow Train is all about the mindset… We all go in so excited,” he giggled, “just to ride this little go-kart thing with barrels hooked together. If you hype it up and be excited about it, it’s the best part.”

They frequently offer discounts for large groups, so get your gang together for a trip out west!

Lynd Fruit Farm

9393 Morse Rd. SW, Pataskala OH

Recommended by BuckeyeThon

Buckeyethon members apple-picking at Lynd’s with one of the kids from Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Located in Pataskala, Lynd Fruit Farm is a campus favorite. Just a quick 30-minute drive away, students like Noel Mescher in BuckeyeThon return every year for a classic fall experience.

“Our org comes here each year with the BuckeyeThon families because the fruit farm has such a warm environment to enjoy the wonders that fall has to offer,” Mescher said. BuckeyeThon families include the parents and siblings of children diagnosed with terminal illness at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. “Not only is it pretty, but the whole place lets us feel like kids again.”

Whether it’s bumpy hay-rides to the orchard or racing to find the best apples available, Lynd’s will send you back to your coziest childhood memories. Visit a Columbus staple this season and celebrate their century of service as they hit their 100th birthday this fall!
