    A visitor writes on October 25, 2011: "Took my family to stu millers pumpkin patch thinking their little activities for the kids were free since it said free admission but when we got there, they wanted 3 tickets per child just to jump in the jumper!! When you have 3 kids, it gets pricey!! I don't think it was right for them to put a big sign that says free admission and when you get inside with your your kids who are ready to play, you then see the signs that everything needs tickets!!!"
    A visitor writes on October 13, 2008:
    "Usually the first week of October they open on the corner of Winchester road and Murrieta Hot Springs Road for the season. They have bouncers with slides, a few carnival rids such as swings and trampoline. Farm animals, pony ride, Kettle corn. After October and November they put up the Christmas trees. I have been bringing my kids to this even since 2005. They always talk about the pumpkin patch by the end of September looking for signs of the pumpkin patch.  Prices are reasonable, you purchase tickets for rides. If you do not use them all you can use them another day. I could not find them via internet. It would be nice if they had a page."
