Attractions: The Mazes

York Maze is famous for the giant Maize Maze, the largest in Europe, but we also boast many other curious maze based attractions for you to puzzle over.

The giant “maize maze” is a living growing maze made from over 1 million maize plants covering an area larger than 8 Wembley football pitches!!

It is the largest maze in Britain, and one of the largest mazes in the world. But the puzzling fun doesn't end there.

You won't believe your eyes in the Maze of Illusions, you'll be on your knees in the Mineshaft Maze, and who knows what your future holds in the Finger Fortune Maze.

The mazes are just some of the 20+ attractions at York Maze, there is so much to do, you’ll be “a-maized”.

Take up Kernel Kernel's challenges to complete as you navigate through the giant maze. Solve his puzzles and there are prizes to be won!

Remember there is so much more than just the maze, so come on down and enjoy the Fun!!
Maize is an annual plant, so each spring we plant the seeds, and create a new maze with a different theme, so our attraction changes every year, keeping visitors old and new entertained and baffled at the same time.

Then after Halloween we harvest the plants and feed them to the cows on the farm over the cold winter months when there is no grass for them to eat. This is why York Maze only opens for a part of the year, when the plants are ready.

The maze is only part of a great day out at York Maze, there is so much to do, you’ll be “a-maized”
