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 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 complex. It's the perfect setting for a rustic wedding!

We visited York Maze today, 2nd time ever and 1st time this season/year and we loved it even more. This years additions are fantastic and make a brilliant day/venue even better. I would highly recommend it for all the family and we will be visiting again this Summer.

Have been waiting for months to visit so finally opening day arrived and we set off, picnic packed and sun cream applied!!
Easy to get too, no horrendous queuing up or parking problems, everything is so well set up. The areas are so clean and every play item for the children is manned by such friendly and polite staff. The maze itself is fantastic fun, it took us 30 minutes before I gave in and opened the map we had ( best £1.50 ever spent ). Very amusing that every dad we saw in the maze did exactly the same as me and hid the map in the back pocket when we saw each other !! Pig racing, obstacle course, bouncy pillows, water wars and so much more. We will be returning a lot this year, absolutely fantastic day out.

I love the York Maze!! We've been going for the past three years and we've never had a less than fabulous time. My two boys, aged 7 and 5 love going- they never bore of the activities. The staff are friendly and are obviously trained well on customer satisfaction. The activities are well thought out and aimed at the whole family. The atmosphere, facilities and overall experience of the maze is what you need and want when on a family day out. The owners are very 'hands on' and very passionate about their creation -they are always on hand to answer questions etc. The food is always delicious and everything looks fresh and inviting. There is something for every member of the family- whether it's exploring the Doctor Who maze, bouncing on the giant pillar, holding birds of prey, playing in the sand, whizzing round on the quad bikes or even getting soaking wet on the water catapult. We highly recommend to all! Keep up the excellent work guys and we'll see you again very soon!! Xx

A great family day out, the kids loved it. Plenty of activities to keep them busy and a lovely cafe when your ready for a coffee. So many things to look at from finding your way round the mazes to watching pigs racing. Recommend
