North Yorkshire maze returns for a second summer – with a new name and new attractions
The Great Ryedale Maze is preparing to ‘crop up’ once again with the easing of lockdown restrictions.
Formerly known as The Great Yorkshire Maze, the newly-renamed field of fun is back this summer after its hugely popular debut in 2020.
The Great Ryedale Maze is located just off the A64 in Sherburn, midway between Scarborough and Malton. It opens on Wednesday 14 July 2021, and is set to be open over the summer holidays.
The attraction promises fun for adults and children alike, with two mazes, an action-packed Vintage Funfair, Football Darts and a Big Top with live entertainment for families.
The Yorkshire Dragon Maze comprises nine acres of maize plants and over two miles of paths to challenge the navigation skills, as well as a series of clues to test the powers of deduction. There will also be a smaller maze specially for younger adventurers.
Have a go on 1937 Dodgems and a newly restored 1950s Twister and more at the Vintage Funfair, and game stalls like Hook-a-Duck and Flip-a-Frog will keep the fun going.
There will also be a range of hot and cold food and drinks to cater for all tastes, served from the Cabin Café.
Organiser James Cundall says, “We are very excited to be bringing The Great Ryedale Maze back to the heart of North Yorkshire. It’s been a challenging year for everyone so it will be wonderful to be able to provide fun and entertainment of the highest quality over the summer, in a safe environment, for families who have had a long period in isolation.”
The Great Ryedale Maze will be open every day from 14 July to 5 September 2021, from 9.30am to 5.30pm with last admissions at 4.00pm.
Tickets are priced at £10.95 for adults and £9.95 for children (aged 3-15, under 3s free), with concessions, family prices and discounted tickets for NHS staff and their families.
Tickets can be purchased at the box office on site or booked in advance through Ticketsource.
All Covid-19 guidance from the Government will be continuously monitored and followed.
