When Play Day Farm opens on Sept. 18 at High Hill off I-70, Richard Tinsley’s dream will come true.

The longtime owner of Tinsley Amusements, Inc., always wanted to open an amusement park. He has been in the carnival business since 1967 and has provided carnivals for several county and state fairs throughout the Midwest.

“He always wanted to have a small amusement park during his lifetime,” said Sandy George, who has been working with Tinsley for 30 years. “But being on the road all of the time and staying busy seven days a week and 6-7 months a year, he never really had the time to spend pursuing his dream. Now, he has an opportunity despite COVID-19, so we told him, ‘Now is the time to do it.’”

Play Day Farm will open from 3 p.m.-7 p.m. on Fridays, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m.-7 p.m. on Sundays from Sept. 18 to Oct. 31. The park will include a professionally cut, five-acre corn maze with family fun rides, miniature train rides and refreshments.

For rides, visitors can purchase up to three coupons. Each coupon is $1.25 each and the cost for 22 coupons are $20. The train ride will require three coupons.

The cost to get into the corn maze is $7 per person. Sales will end at 6 p.m. each day. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult and children 4 and under will get free admission. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, social distancing is required. No food, drinks or pets are allowed in the park.
