York maze is an a-maizing day out for the whole family. The attraction...

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!

I never expected that my visit to the maize maze would be the day I held a snake in my hands. Or saw a pumpkin carving factory. Or felt a bit sick in a revolving tunnel. York Maze was such a (good) surprise.

This is great on a dry summers day, everything for kids as well as the maze. You can eat there or take a picnic, plenty of room to sit and have a quiet 10 mins in between activities

Had a brilliant day despite the horrible weather. Plenty to do undercover, very well set out. Staff so friendly and welcoming, plenty of them about which is reassuring. The phantomine was incredible really well done. Kernel corn doing the worm was the highlight. A great day out. Can't wait til next season. Ps. You should consider hosting a Santa's grotto... More

This is a fantastic attraction and well worth the gate price for a fun day out for all the family. We purchased a season pass this summer being locals and it was a great investment. The only thing I would suggest is as pass holders perhaps getting discount of food and drinks and the fee to possibly cover the Halloween... More
