Frequently asked questions
Due to federal regulations we ask that you leave them at home. However, registered service dogs are welcome.
Yes you can but you will need to be aware of some time restrictions. Last entry to the apple orchard is 5:30pm and the orchard will be cleared out at 6:00pm. The last daylight train ride will be at 5:45pm and the train will then shutdown until sunset. This will give us time to get all the lights turned on & refuel the train. The first train ride through the Halloween Light Show will then be at dusk (anywhere from 6:30pm-7:30pm depending on the lighting conditions).
The Halloween Light Show is no longer a drive through. Starting this season, 2022, the light show will be viewed from the Lakeland Express (our new train) and General Admission or a Season Pass is required for everyone 3&older for entry.
Passes for Lakeland Orchard & Cidery can be purchased online or at the gate. Click here to purchase your passes now and save 15%!
Adventure Cards are new for 2022 and they are an add on to your General Admission ticket. While your General Admission ticket covers our attractions, we do have a handful of extras (like flowers & picking containers) and, of course, food that requires an extra cost. With an Adventure Card you'll save 25-35% when you use your punches vs. paying as you go. Click here to see all the details.
Yes, everyone will need a pass to enter the orchard. However, no pass is needed if you would like to visit our Retail Tent to purchase pre-picked vegetables, flowers, apples, or cider.
Children 2 and under are admitted free. Everyone else is required to have a pass.
A season pass can be purchased online (here) or at the gate. Season passes are valid for unlimited admission at Lakeland Orchard & Cidery and Roba Family Farms. Passes are available for guests three and older. Passes may be redeemed at the orchard or farm at Admissions.
If Lakeland Orchard & Cidery needs to close early due to inclement weather, all orchard guests will be required to leave the orchard. If this happens while you are at the orchard, please stop at the Retail Tent on your way out and we will be happy to give you a rain pass. You will need to have your wristband on your wrist to exchange for the rain pass. However, no refunds will be given.
You do not need to print your pass. Passes can be downloaded to your phone or tablet or we can look up your tickets by name.

Yes, but there are a few rules. Everyone must purchase a pass to enter the orchard & can only visit during normal business hours. Props and lighting hardware are prohibited. If you use photographs of our orchard for advertising or social media, please give us credit or tag us. And lastly, please remember we are open to the public and you are only permitted to photograph your clients and respect the space of our other guests.
Yes, we accept all credit cards, but we do not accept cash. If you come with cash, you will have the option to load it to a Lakeland Orchard & Cidery gift card to utilize throughout your visit. If you have a remaining balance at the end of your visit you can redeem on future visits. There is no minimum or maximum amount that you can add to your gift card.
We have port-o-lavs located in several areas around the orchard along with hand washing stations.
Our Wagons have wheelchair lifts and some areas of the attractions & cider garden have gravel paths but the orchard, sunflower field, & zinnia field are all working farm ground and may be difficult to traverse with a wheelchair.
