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!

Went with 3 kids ranging from 7 up to 12 and they all had a fabulous time (as did the adults). The house of cornfusion was definitely a highlight. Brilliant day out, lovely friendly staff

Visited on 20/08/15 with my family and we were definitely shocked at how much is there.The main maze was so much fun (for us adults too) o and the crazy house had us laughing so much. all the other things to do there are great aswel.o and the staff are so nice and friendly it was a excellent experience for us all especially since everything there is for adults aswel as the kids so adults can have as much fun aswel.and the homemade cakes they sell are delicious. Its a fantastic day out wel worth every penny we will definitely be going again.

wasnt too sure how much would be there apart from the maze,but was absolutely amazed by the whole place.So much to do!the kids are kept busy all day and there are so many relaxing places for adults to sit and have a breather.I personally wasnt too keen on the illusion house as one of the things made me very disoriented and dizzy,but perhaps thats just me.the staff were all absolutely unbelievable everyone of them so very friendly and wonderfully patient with children(and adults) nothing too much trouble.The catering outlets had a good choice,good fresh burgers and sausage but was a little disappointed with the chips.but there are plenty of fresh sandwiches/salads and cakes.you are quite welcome to take your own picnics too.will definately go again and would reccomend to anybody!we were there 7 hours!

We've just got back from our first visit to York maze. It has been a fantastic day out. The staff are very welcoming, polite and fantastic with the kids. When we initially were given our map on admission, I thought that we would have done it all in a couple of hours. In fact, we were there for 6 hours. We got there early and had no queues to contend with, walking straight onto many attractions before many visitors arrived. The House of Cornfusion was our favourite! The maze was good and we spent a while in there trying to find our clues and exit! Thee are plenty of picnic tables or grassed areas to sit on. We also had coffee and ice cream from the refreshment stands which were ok, but would be a little expensive for a large family. The weather was kind to us during our visit which was good. The maze opened later (12ish) to allow the paths to dry out from the previous day's rain. We will definitely return next year. We've thoroughly enjoyed our day out and would recommend it.
