Welcome to Cannamore Orchard

Enjoy family fun, apples, strawberries, pumpkins,
activities, and the acres of terror™… All in Ottawa!

Strawberries in June! 

We are now closed for the winter season! The Orchard will re-open in June for our Strawberry season. We look forward to seeing you then! 


Cannamore Orchard, home of the renowned Spooky Wagon Ride™, has evolved from our commitment to consistently provide fun, affordable, family activities and quality products for 24 years. Depending on the season, Cannamore Orchard offers a delightful selection of pre-picked and ‘Pick Your Own’ (PYO) strawberries, apples and pumpkins, we are currently in Apple season. 

In our Family Activity Area, which opens the first weekend in September, you will find: outdoor finger and patio stone mazes, a pipe maze, an indoor dark maze*, rainbow maze, many play structures for children, a sand box with toys and the picnic areas. Visit the animal corral and see our singing chickens! We also have a large pond where you can see fish, frogs, tadpoles and if you look very carefully a turtle! If you want to try something different visit our outdoor GIANT Hedge Mazes! They are a short walk to the third field or for those having an all inclusive bracelet, a cow train or wagon ride to the maze field. All of our activities are available on weekends beginning the start of September and continuing until Thanksgiving from 11:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M. All inclusive bracelets, which include the pedal car track are available in the Orchard Store. All inclusive bracelets allow you to use all the facilities as many times as you wish, or you can purchase individual tickets for the duck race, museum, maze field, cow train or wagon ride.

The cost for an All Inclusive Bracelet is $10/person, Individual Tickets are $4 each, and kids 3 & under are free. 

*Please note: Due to our new Escape Maze attraction, the Dark Maze is no longer available for use. 

25th Anniversary for 2017! 

The Spooky Wagon Ride has a new name, Acres of Terror! Please be patient while we switch everything over. 

Fall of 2017 will welcome Acres of Terror’s 25th year in operation! We’re busy planning our 2017 season along with some special events for our 25th year!
