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!

it started as a beautiful day when we went and we had an absolute fantastic time. i couldnt afford to go often as it is quiet expensive to get in. Saying that i do believe it was worth every penny. When we went in the maze the typical British weather decided to rain, but who cares! It was a bit... More

The value for money for scarefest during halloween is phenomenal, the attentional to detail when it comes to theme is first class, love this place, going to bring the rest of my friends and scare them next halloween!

This place is great, something you dream of doing as a kid or only see on films. Best when there has been a good crop, as sometimes with a low crop you can see where you are going. Food is nice but was ruined by all the wasps on the decking.

Live close by but go every year for the halloween event. Well worth the trip, and even for normal days. Lots more than just a maze.

I visit the maze every year with my son (now 6) and we have a great day each time. There's plenty to do to keep kids entertained for the day. Maze is great and not too tricky to navigate around. I always take a picnic as the food on site is a bit pricey. I'm not sure what people expect... More

Spend the day. take a picnic, or eat in, the grand children the eldest 15, can run around in safety, go on the many attractions and you can just sit back and watch! the tractor ride is great but be prepared to get wet, the kids loved the water balloon fights, Well worth a visit

Although I felt that the admission fees were expensive, it was most certainly worth it. I took my son and grandson and there were plenty of things to keep you occupied all day along with a variety of food to purchase and lots of picnic tables should you take your own food. I would certainly recommend this for families, but... More
