A Farmer in York, England, has created what is believed to be the world’s biggest LEGO Minifigure cut from his 15 acre field of maize plants near York.
The giant Maize Maze has been created to mark the iconic brands 90th anniversary.
Covering an area the size of 8 Wembley football pitches York Maze is believed to be the biggest maze in Europe and one of the largest in the world. When viewed from the air the York Maze design shows a giant image of a LEGO Minifigure breaking through a wall of LEGO bricks. The Minifigure is over 150m tall and is believed to be the biggest Minifigure image ever created.
Says farmer Tom Pearcy, “I love LEGO play, my kids love LEGO play, it’s something that appeals to all ages. When deciding what image to design in the maze I immediately thought of creating the world’s biggest LEGO Minifigure. We challenge visitors to navigate their way around the maze to find the images of six big LEGO Minifigure boards I’ve hidden in the maze, find all six Minifigures and answer the quiz questions and you could win a prize. With over 5km of pathways there is plenty of scope for getting lost!
Isabel Graham, Head of Marketing, The LEGO Group UK and Ireland said: “90 years on and play remains at the heart of everything we do at The LEGO Group. This maze offers another great way for families to play together and we can’t wait until the Maze design will be revealed from the sky!”
The LEGO Group 90 Years of Play Maze is open for visitors to explore from Saturday 16th July to Monday 5th September 2022 when the crop will be harvested. For details of opening times visit www.yorkmaze.co.uk.
