Howell’s Pumpkin Patch is down in Cumming; they charge one admission price and then have a few additional activities for an extra charge (pony rides and corn cannon are extra on top of admission; corn maze, jumping pad, pedal go karts, observation deck, human hamster wheel, rubber duck races, corn pit, large slides, pedal tractors are all free).

There is food on site, as well as a full gift shop with holiday decor. Two other things to note are that their wagon rides are wheelchair accessible and they send you a $5 coupon if you sign up for their newsletter online (in the lefthand sidebar).
