Owner description: 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!

“Good day for Nanna and grandchildren”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Loads to do, plenty of things that we could all get involved with. Lovely staff. Lack of height for the maize was beneficial to us as the whole did not seem too overwhelming for young children. Loads of picnic tables as well as food and rinks on sale at reasonable prices.

“Great fun day out, loads to do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

We visited this attraction last year but were unable to go into the maze as it had been raining hard but all rides etc were free and we still had a good day out promising ourselves another visit this year to enter the maze.
Yes the maze is not as tall as it would normally be but this didn't make a difference to our enjoyment and we all managed to complete it. Because of the maze being less advanced the crazy golf is free wich was very good. The children [ages 8,5 and 2] all had a wonderfull time on the bouncy pillows, adventure playground etc. I think they enjoyed the tractor ride the best as we all got soaked, thank goodness it was hot and sunny !!
The outdoor BBQ food was again great, it was very busy so a little wait was necessary, everyone enjoyed their lunch. There are lots of picnic tables available and visitors are welcome to bring their own food so no need for it to be an expensive day.
I would certainly go again next year, we're already looking forward to it !!

“Fantastic family day out”

Great value for money .... Take a packed lunch and spend the whole day here. Our 2 year old son loved the sand and water play, crow chase, quad bikes and pig races!

“It just keeps on delivering.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

We were worried about the Maze this year. Frequent visitors, with an annual pass most years, we heard the maze itself was in poor condition and the delayed opening by one week added to our concern. But we should not have been concerned! My husband took our 2 kids there on a lovely sunny day last week. He arrived at 10am. They had a ball! He struggled to get them out at 5pm!! There is so much to do. No wonder they are pestering to go back again next week. The Halloween is ALWAYS on our list for October half term.
