Denver Downs kicks off fall season with new attraction
ANDERSON, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Denver Downs Farm in Anderson is kicking off its Fall Festival season Saturday with a brand new attraction.
“All the preparation and hard work that it has taken it’s finally great to see the first people come out and have fun,” said Denver Downs Farm Co-Owner Catherine Garrison Davis.
For more than 150 years, the farm has been family-owned and operated. The Fall Festival lets the community have fun on the farm, but also learn more about the farming industry.
“People don’t have opportunities to get out and visit farms like they used to so families are looking for places to take their children so that they can show them where food comes from, where fiber for their clothing comes from,” explains Davis. “And so people coming out to our farm, they get a little bit of taste for that and they can appreciate nature, they can appreciate being outside, and having fun in the outdoors.”
Each year, the farm makes the Fall Festival bigger and bigger.
Denver Downs’ newest attraction is the Mega Super Slide Mountain which is a colorful, double-lane, 250-foot-long slide where riders can go up to 35 miles per hour.
In addition to the giant Mega Super Slide Mountain, Denver Downs has added another jumping pillow and set the two pillows into a large enclosed space with shaded seating for parents. The smaller kids will enjoy a new play area with a climbing wall and slide plus a covered sandbox. The zip line, 10-acre corn maze, ropes course, tube slide, farm animals, pig races, barnyard games, hay barn with swinging ropes, human foosball, racing tricycles, and endless cow train are all making comebacks for the 2022 season as well.
The farm opens for its fall season on Saturday, Sept. 24, and continues through Nov. 13.
