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 travel about an hour to go to York Maze but it was 100% worth it!! We took our dog with us which was great because not many places allow dogs in.

When we went to the Mazes it was a Star Wars theme, so all of the corn has been cut into the shape of characters from the film. Along the way they had a quiz with clues, so as you walked through the maze you had to solve the riddles to work about hidden message by the end of the maze.

I really enjoyed the day out and the dog definitely did, so we will be going back no question!

We got the first slot intake period at 7am for Hallowscream and just as well because whilst there were hardly any queues for the first few "mazes" but by 8.30 the place was packed. Even though the time slot is in 40 minutes - it probably won't take you 40 minutes to get round everything - so its best not to get there too late. All the different mazes were "themed" from the futuristic 2073 to the butchery of the Flesh Pot. All the mazes involved going from room to room not knowing what to expect next as actors jumped either jumped out or something or other went bang. One or two of the mazes involved crouching and/or feeling disorientated. Overall, the mazes were quite long and well designed taking roughly 10-15 minutes each and there was things to do outside of the mazes with the live show and the virtual reality zombie headsets.

I go to Hallowscream each year and it just gets better each time. Each year it gets mixed up and there is always a new attraction making it new and exciting each time. I always get terrified and never know what to expect. I do feel that if it gets any more expensive than it is now that i might have to consider going.

This was my second visit to the Hallowscream attraction, and oh my god, it gets better!! Undoubtedly worth the price you pay - also there's an option to pay more to skip queues, which is a good idea. In my opinion though, queueing wasn't too bad, and prolonged the whole experience. If all queues are skipped, you could probably do the whole event in about an hour - now where's the fun in that?!
They've made all of the attractions start from under a huge marquee too, so people don't have to worry about getting too cold queueing. Amazing idea!
I will definitely be returning again. This certainly isn't one of those things where if you've been once, you don't need to go again!
