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've been here several times for the maze but it was our first time for the Halloween event. And yet again it was fabulous. We spent the day here and did not manage it all. We carved pumpkins which was part of the price. Followed by lovely reasonably priced bbq food. The tractor ride was converted to a spooky ride- which had been made completely different. Spent time in the sand pit and holding reptiles and birds of prey. Then went to the phantomime which was good honest fun. The only thing we paid for besides lunch was face painting but at £1 we weren't fussed. The shops are dangerous though as I find it quality gifts! I shall definately be coming back again and really want to do the evening Halloween there.

Visited on Monday 27th October, didn't seem to be much to actually 'do' ? Ok for kids that don't mind walking around alot. Not push camhair friendly, unless you've got an off broader, and the baby change by the main toilets was pretty filthy.

Overall if you have 2 kids over 3 and two adults, £42 would better off spent elsewhere.

Although my 2 and a half yr old loved the bouncy pillow, there wasn't much else that interested him

Hi there,
thanks for your feedback on our Halloween event. I am surprised to hear that you didn't think there was much to do here. We have 20 different things going on, including our hilarious Halloween "Phantomime" show, birds of prey, pumpkin carving, ghostmania ride, and the haunted maze treasure hunt to name but a few. Our customer feedback tells us the most people think its an "amazingly" good value for money day out. (and don't forget all children get a free pumpkin too!!)

Been here in the Summer for the main maze attraction and Halloween event for the kids. Both days arrived at opening and left no earlier than 5. For an entry price of £10 a person and qith the quality of the attraction inside this is an absolute bargain. Take a picnic and enjoy the day.

In the kids words "best day ever"

Just hope there are enough tickets left for the fireworks event

Came here on Saturday 25th October as a treat for my 6 yr old daughters birthday along with her 2 yr old sister and their dad. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and went home completely exhausted after a jam packed busy day, plenty to do for all ages, will be back in summer 2015 for sure!!

I experienced York Maze for the first time during their hallowee'en event. The large maize field had been harvested (But I was aware of this before travelling), so the event was geared up to hallowe'en with a lot of themed events and shows. As a family day out for familes with young children, I have to say it was very good. Maybe not so for adults alone, or older kids. However, the presentation was excellent. The panto was extremely good too. The staff all seem to want to please and work very hard to do so. When the event closed for the day, many of the staff lined up to wave a very cherery goodbye to everyone, a nice touch. I'm not sure, but I reckon theirs a bit of the 'Disney' park philosophy practiced here and it works well. The only downside was that I felt it was expensive to enter, but having said that, the money seems to be reinvested in keeping quality high, so yes it is worth it. I can imagine this place gets very crowded in summer. As a family though, we are raving about our lovely day out, so well done to the staff a York Maze, for making our day.
