For no other reason than it was by the car park, we tried this maze. It was good old fashioned fun for the kids, running around answering the clues. There are simple picture clues for the younger members of the family and more cryptic clues for the smarter members of the family. It kept us focuses for almost an hour,... More

Well what a fun little Maze! Hard for some I can imagine to get excited about a maze, however this is very smart ! I mean smart as you need to find all the clues to get the frog to do something at the end ! It was very magical to see what happens, I can't say anymore because it... More

On a busy bank holiday in Bourton this was a welcome diversion away from all the crowds in the main street. Priced sensibly and offering a challenge that could last anything from 30 to 50 minutes. Curiously we found the centre with only a handful of the clues completed, so we ventured back out to get the rest and got... More

Visited as a family of 4 (2 kids aged 10 & 11). Not a bad price and we all had a good time. I paired up with the hubby and we challenged the kids to see which team would finish first and we all met in the middle. We all had a giggle at our interpretations of the clues and... More

We visited here on a very wet August weekend. The maze is too narrow to put an umbrella up in - it's only just big enough for single file walking - so we braved the elements and just got on with it. The maze walls are tall and thick and strengthened with fencing which means that it feels nicely closed... More

I took two teenage French boys and we all loved this puzzle-maze. It does say that the brainy can solve the puzzle in around 20 minutes but it took us 50 minutes to find all the clues and we had great fun finding them. We were lucky that we went when it wasn't too busy so nobody solved the puzzle... More

We had such a laugh going round this maze. You have to find key stones put what's on them in order on a piece of paper then follow the instructions once you find the centre. Great fun. Not just for children 👍🏻

We loved the maze, you collect clues as you go through and write them on a piece of paper when you reach the centre you use the clues to discover something!

Did the maze on a trip to Boughton and it was great fun. You have a range of clues to collect and you need to put these together to unravel the clue as to where the dragonfly is hiding. Sometimes you have to think outside the box to get to the answers. My daughter loved it especially when we managed... More

Love a good maze so thought this would be great. Having to do the puzzle as well adds an extra dimension and makes it last longer than it would do if you were just trying to find the middle. Managed to find 6 of the 14 clues before we found the middle so headed back into the thicket to find... More
