One word AMAZING!
What a day out.. Put together sunshine (well, it peeked through the cloulds a fair few times), loads of activities, a group of friends and you get a fun packed, value for money family adventure.
York Maze is most definately somewhere I’d recommend. Easy to get to – 2 mins off the A64 towards York, loads of parking just a few meters from the entrance, value for money – our pre-booked family tickets (2 adults and 3 kids) worked out at £11.50 each.
There was so much to do from the second you walked in. The best way is to show it in pictures
The sandpit – immediately in front of you as you arrive – lost the kids to it for at least an hour – stuff to climb on, water play, diggers
Right next to an adventure park
On to the bouncy pillow – grown ups allowed (how could we resist!)
Before exploring the Mazes – there’s the main Maze, Illusion Maze, Fingers Maze (my personal favourite), Crazy Golf Maze, Mineshaft Maze. All different, all with a range of activities to do.
And there’s more – Snake Slides (I screamed louder than the kids!), Crazy golf, water wars (to be honest, we didn’t do this.. note for next time to take a change of clothes so we can happily get involved). Kids loved, loved the Pig Racing. Natalie’s pig came in first so she got a medal that she proudly wore the rest of the day.
Activities continued with the Graffiti wall, motor boat driving (additional cost of £1 for this), the House of Confusion (this was amazing, but don’t underestimate the effect it will have on you.. not one if you have a weak tummy – was decidedly queezy afterwards).
Another favourite was the Crowmania Ride – lots of opportunity to get squirted with water, there was a bit of banter with the guide, story telling and interaction with the scarecrow on the way round too

Haystacks to climb
Photo opportunities everywhere – we of course took full advantage!
We took a picnic – lots of outside space with picnic benches, as well as a covered area if the weather had taken a turn for the worse (which for once, it didn’t). There is a coffee shop cafe and also a grill if you want to buy food, and a few icecream/snack kiosks around too.
We arrived about 11am (opens at 10am) – no queues, straight it and left around 5.30pm (closes at 6pm). We could’ve spent way more time than we did walking round the mazes, but we were trying our best to fit everything it. And even after over 6hrs having tonnes of fun there was still stuff we hadn’t done.
A return visit is a must, and would highly recommend you get along if you can.
