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!

Definately worth a visit. Bit pricey to get in but then all activities are free so worth it. Can easily spend a full day here. Tons of fun for all ages!

Quite simply put, a maze, outdoors, walking & finding the exits. No pens or maps provided. If you get lost, put your left hand on the left wall, follow the left wall around very literally & eventually you will find the exit or entrance.

We came here on bonfire night and we loved how lively it was and not too packed or too muddy! Quite pricey for getting snacks but the display was lovely although it was freezing! Looking to go when the maze is open again in the summer!

So disappointed after Bonfire Night, after previous years reviewed it as spectacular we treated ourselves to the expensive tickets and left very angry and upset. The park was wet and packed, there were a couple of fairground rides not age appropriate and the bar area and entertainment was packed and not safe for children. Not entirely sure what I paid...

Have been a few times before and have always enjoyed it, always tell everyone I know that they should go and this year I even persuaded my husband who really wasn't interested. From the minute we got there the atmosphere was incredible and all the staff were so helpful and friendly. From the bar staff to security to all the... More

Not impressed. Won't go again. Urge you not go if they put fireworks on again! Agree with previous reviews; too expensive, car parking a shambles with non-existent marshalling at the end, music to accompany display was shocking. Gave score of 1 for lit up drummers before the display that were excellent, and band at the end whose entire set we... More

Me and my other half came to York Maze for Bonfire Night on 5-11-16! Very very disappointed for the price you pay for the tickets... 2 rides only 1 was for adults, food bar - serving cold burgers, car park was a shambles for getting out was very badly organised... 30mins it took for us to leave. Never again for... More

Not really spectacular enough to come back. Felt it had so much more potential but not enough planning or effort has gone into the smaller detail. Good firework display ruined by a strange choice of music in the background. 80's Ghostbusters, simpsons and then frozen? A couple of basic rides and ridiculously long queues to get a hot drink. All... More

The York maze started about 15years ago as just a maze cut into a maize field, over this time it has moved and developed into an impressive destination with some great activities. The maize maze still exists with a different theme each year but alongside this are slides, a huge playground and some interesting activities involving illusions and a high... More
