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!

Another fab visit to York maze. Each year there is something new to try but the old classic parts are still just as great from the tractor ride and the maze. We now make it a yearly trip and it never disappoints.

Well at last I've finally found the best value day out possible. The kids thought it was a blast I really enjoyed it too. If your looking for a good worth while day out that actually doesn't mean remortgaging the house then head to York maze. The staff are fantastic and seem to enjoy the job which makes a change...

We visited York Maze for the first time as a large family group with 10 children ranging from babies to 13 years old. We had a fabulous day. The maze itself actually turned out to be our least favourite thing. Not that we didn't enjoy it, just because there were several toddlers, who of course just thought we were walking... More

I didn't know what to expect from the York Maze (apart from the maze itself) and I was pleased to find that it had more to offer than just getting lost in a field. It isn't the cheapest of things to do and I would book online or watch out for any vouchers just to save a a bit of... More

I have just returned from a fantastic, fun-filed day out at York Maze. Unfortunately when we arrived we were informed by staff that due to the amount of rain the evening before the maze itself wouldn't be open but we could still use all of the other attractions and could enter for half price because of the maze closure. I... More

My mother decided to take my children and myself to York Maze for a family day out. The children are 14,12 & 9. She pre-booked the tickets paid online. We have just arrived this morning only to be told the main maze and finger maze are closed due to mud. We'd driven all the way from Halifax are we're not... More

Hi there, thanks for letting us know your thoughts. Sorry, it sounds like you may not have had all the information you needed to decide whether to come in!? Unfortunately we can't control the weather, and the main maze is a field of maize, with soil pathways so if we have had heavy rain, we occasionally have to close the... More

Visited for the second year 21st August, with a 9month old, 3yr, 7yr and 12yr plus 5 adults. Full day of activities for all ages, the maize was surprisingly dry even with all the rain! Food reasonably priced, toilets clean and staff were lovely. The tractor ride is lots of fun but maybe not for very small children who don't... More

Great day out. Plenty for all the family to do and adults to join in. The show and the pig racing are both a must. So funny. Plenty of food options, reasonable price, or take your own. And my real bug bear - the gift shop was not too plastic. Only thing though - wear old shoes - they get... More
