Johansen Farms Children’s Zoo

We welcome you to Chicagoland’s favorite pumpkin farm and children's zoo, now celebrating our 33rd season. Pay one price for all rides & activities—do them one time or a hundred times! NEW THIS YEAR - Noah's Miniature Golf Course and our Giant Inflatable Obstacle Course! Watch your students experience holding a baby chick, play with the goats, visit over 500 animals, take a pony, train, or hayride. Fly down the two story air slides, wind through our corn maze! Or let your younger students explore our Toddler Pooh Park, with attractions just for them. Don’t miss the “All Fun, No Fright” experience – for scout groups.
Walk through our giant Pumpkin Patch of over 25,000 pumpkins, visit our concession stand, or for a real treat, sit down and enjoy a fresh hot apple cider doughnut or a piece of freshly baked pie in our Pie House. Or shop for decor - Halloween decorations, corn stalks, pumpkin gourds and straw bales for your classroom. Don't forget to take a class photo in our free photo op area. A trip to Johansen Farms has become an autumn tradition for so many school groups.
