Every fall we do the pumpkin patch tour. There are 3 patches within 8 miles of my house in Flower Mound. It starts with the excitement of driving by and seeing the pumpkins being delivered, seeing the inflatables go up, watching the crowds gather and then stopping by to join in on the fun.

Ride the Pumpkin Express

Our favorite pumpkin patch is The Pumpkin Express in Argyle.   It is a few miles further than some of the others, but the entire family loves the peaceful surroundings and of course, the train.

Tickets to the Pumpkin Express are $5 each and include a train ride and entry into the pumpkin patch.   You enter through the station and then take the train on a ride through fields, over bridges, under trees and then arrive at the pumpkin patch.

The pumpkin patch is stocked with little red wagons for pumpkin “picking” along with a bunch of things to do with kids.   There is a large tent that sells a variety of pumpkins and fall decor along with a concession stand.

There is a hay maze, play train, a variety of playhouses, jump houses, hay “stack” and of course, the train.

I follow my kids around snapping pictures just like every other mother present – it is our motherly pumpkin patch duty.

There is a really neat tree trunk tunnel, but by far the most popular among my boys was the teeter totter…

…except, of course, for the train.

    Sorry, forgot to add great post! Can’t wait to see your next post!

  3. They do have some unique things there that the other patches don’t have, don’t they? And that teeter totter? Reese’s FAVORITE too!

    Thank you so much for the info on the pumpkin express in Argyle. I am a mom from Granbury who’s looking for a fun place to bring my son along with a small group of others just like me…..I didn’t find their website to be much help, (the last thing posted was in 2009, and the phone number listed didn’t get me anywhere either, so I had nearly thought this place wasn’t a possibility! But thanks a ton!

  5. I have a ton of great pictures from this patch! My son and I easily spent 3 hours wandering around. It’s nice to have a large enclosed space to let the kids run free! (And the train was a big hit!)

  6. To all who are thinking about taking your kids, I would highly recommend this adventure. We have been coming here for 4 years, as long as we lived in Argyle, and the train ride is absolutely spectacular! Hard to describe it, just go! Pumpkins are 12 bucks, hot dogs, water chips drinks, etc are one price- 1 dollar! Kids under 2 years old ride free, extra train rides are three dollars. Bounce houses, a real cool maze, and lots of other things. Kids will love it, and adults will appreciate the fine details of not just the trains, but the track and trestles elaboritely built to route the railroad around ponds, and gullies. Open till Oct 31st so better get there, before season is over. If you go once, I guarantee you will be back!
