Phillips Farm Review

Phillips Farm has been a staple for many teenangers growing up in Cary in their Halloween experience. The Haunted Park opened on September 29th and is open every Friday and Saturday up until October 28th. The farm is located at 6720 Good Hope Church Road. It costs $25 per person to enter the farm. This ticket  features access to the Field of Lost Souls, Rebellion Trail, The Gore House and Big Top Terror. In simpler terms, Phillips Farm has a hayride, maze and two haunted houses. 

If you aren’t interested in being scared, Phillips Farm also is open from 4:30-7pm on Thursday, 3-6pm on Friday, 10am-6pm on Saturday and 1-6pm on Sunday. There are a ton of activities that families with younger children will love and even teenagers if you’re looking for a chill fall afternoon. The price of admission is $20 per person. The attractions featured are roller racers, pedal car tracks, human foosball, combine quad slide, giant bounce pillows, wagon rides, cow train, grain train, sunflower field, corn maze, corn hall, gaga ball, wall ball, tether ball, mini golf, swings, see saws, corn box and a petting zoo. 

Many GL students have been to Phillips Farm already this year and they have mixed feelings about the farm. I asked Sr. Rusho Moinuddin about his experience and he said, “It wasn’t as fun as it has been in the past but they added some new things to spice it up.” 

I also asked Jr. Ryan Baker what she thought about Phillips Farm. She said “I like Phillips Farm but it’s not that scary. I prefer places like panic point or halloween horror nights.” 

It seems like some Gators believe that they have outgrown Phillips Farm but they still have a good time when they go. If you’re looking for a place to enhance your Halloween experience, Phillips Farm is definitely a good choice.
