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!

Great place to go and take kids

Great day out and great for tiring the kids out with lots for them to interact with and see and do. Also interesting for adults too.

I've been to York maze a few times both in mid summer and in October half term for the spook-fest. Whilst it can seem a bit pricey, particularly if you've got a few kids with you, I think its great value in the amount of things to do. We can happily spend 5 hours here without our 6 year old...

Have been to The Maze two or three times and although you feel it is rather expensive to get in- once you're in everything apart from food is free. There is such a lot for the children to see and do and plenty of areas for parents and grandparents to sit and watch. Children can run around freely and enjoy... More

THE BEST NIGHT EVER! I'm 12 and it was so scary. I recommend The Difference Engine. It's so intense and you should really check it out. I'm going again in 2017.

Attended twice in 2016 with two groups of friends aged 25-38 years. We have been to this event for the past three years, this year was sadly disappointing and featured a couple of the same scares as the last years. The maze part wasn't open as it's been before. Better scarers walking around and making people jump this year. We... More

Lovely day out, we go with the kids every year for my husbands birthday, plenty for everyone to do. Dog friendly so just as much fun without kids too!

Only been here once, but was very impressed. It is a really good family day out. The mazes are good, although at the time I was surprised that in 'York Mazes' there was only one maze. The playground was brilliant. Great!

Visited for child's party. Took seven of their friends and a good day was had by all. It has certainly come a long way since the original field and a few donkeys. As can be expected the drinks and snacks are slightly more expensive than average but you can take your own food to save on cost. Excellent staff and... More

The events over summer and Halloween have all the staff working like there's no tomorrow just to see a smile on people's faces and we can tell, the summer events have all activities to do for all ages. Hallowscream is phenomenal, all the actors are so well trained in what to do and they all do it so well! I... More
