York maze is an a-maizing day out for the whole family. The attraction is based around a giant maze, made from maize plants. We open during the school summer holidays,to give families an amazing day out. With over 20 different rides and attractions, the kids will be kept busy for the whole day! York maze also runs halloween events for families in the daytimes, and teenagers and adults at night during the Halloween half term. We finish the year with a huge firework spectacular set to music, on November the 5th every year. When we are not open to the public, we host weddings in our beautiful barn comlex. It's the perfect setting for a rustic wedding!

So much fun to be had by all here. Plenty of attractions, shows and space! The Halloween event is simply marvellous through the day it is tame enough to take your little ones and on a night beware adults! Well worth the entrance fee.

Amazing night at the Hallowscream event. Interactive rooms, great actors, wonderfully designed sets. Well worth visiting but book ahead it gets busy closer to Halloween.

We loved the York Maze, I'm not going to spoil it, will just say it's a great day out. We didn't enjoy the wasps, and as a person that lives on a farm, we know how easy (although expensive) it is to get rid of all the nests within a good perimeter. The fact they hadn't screamed tight and cheap... More

York Maze is an interesting day trip for anyone with younger members of the family, because it provides plenty of fun for all the family, including a smaller optical illusions maze for infants. The place is large and quite fun and is recommended for a decent daytrip- or for children to Get Lost!!

What can I say, here's me thinking I'm going to get lost in a maze all afternoon how wrong could I be. There's plenty more to do here than meets the eye, a massive maze which changes every year plus a smaller one for the not so brave of us or smaller kids. There's gourmet Yorkshire bacon burgers, water fights... More
