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 daytime, 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!

We had a good time here even though it rained for most of the time. The big sand pit was great for my 2 year-old son, and my 8 year-old daughter LOVED the House of Illusion (although the spinning room made me want to vomit!). The big slides are fun, mazes are good and the bouncy pillow is always a... More

Hi Steven, thanks for your review. Sorry the slide was a little slow for you, we do believe there is a danger of kids colliding at the bottom, so we have a policy of "one at a time" on quieter days. When it is busier we have more staff and send 2 or 3 kids at once, so they all... More

Family of four, including two teenagers, spent the day here and loved it. From pig racing, the house of confusion, crazy golf, crow mania and the mazes themselves were all brilliant. Only let down was Crowbot which for us was dreadful with overacting at a premium!! Had lunch here from the BBQ which was great and priced as expected.

Hi Jonathan, thanks for your review, we are glad you had a fun filled time here. We are sorry to hear the crowbot show wasn't your cup of tea. There is certainly lots of overacting in it, along with plenty of corny jokes, and some dodgy songs too!! More

We came a few years ago and it seems to have improved so much. There's so much to do and the kids loved it. We had to literally pull them away at the end of the day. Will defiantly be back again. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Can't praise it enough.

We spent 6 hours here having fun and good food. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The food and drinks onsite were perfect and very reasonably priced. There are so many things for the kids to do and the maze of maize is awesome. We will definitely be back next year. Recommend it to everyone!

A little expensive on entry but great fun for all ages. A huge amount for kids to do (the maze is only a small part) but also plenty of areas for adults to sit and have a coffee. Definitely worth a visit.

Lovely day out with lots to do, my 9 year old son loved the tractor ride fighting off the crowman, can't remember the name of it. The smaller mazes were a little bit of a disappointment in accordance with how they are described on the website, especially the maze involving tunnels as it was tiny. The largest maze was fun...

We saw a lot of small children having a great time, but we are young 20s and it was a little disappointing. The design of the maze is more of a focus than making it challenging, so we covered the entire maze in less than an hour, including finding everything you had to find. The pig racing was enjoyable, but... More
