This fall destination in Homer Glen, a tucked-away town just 15 minutes from Orland Park, offers up kitschy, seasonal fun, open seasonally from Sept. 15 - Oct. 30. As for scary stuff, there's the the all-ages Fun Barn and the Haunted Barn, a fairly tame tour that boasts witches, warlocks and other nasty decayed-looking creatures. Theme park-like displays entertain throughout, from a skeleton band to singing chickens. A tractor-drawn hayrack ride pulls you out to the pumpkin field, where more than 200 tons of pumpkins await, and a main attraction is the pumpkin launcher, a giant catapult that -- you guessed it -- slings and smashes pumpkins. Food tents, a corn pit barn, fun slide, animals and pig races are also available.
