There are dragons to be found at Sherburn, near Malton, this summer as The Great Ryedale Maze returns, promising a field of fun for all ages.
There are two mazes to enjoy this year in addition to an action packed vintage funfair, football darts, a big top with live entertainment, and refreshments at the Cabin Café.
The larger of the two mazes is the Yorkshire Dragon Maze, which takes inspiration from Ryedale’s rich history, including the carving of a dragon at Levisham church—the “Ryedale Dragon”. It’s complex design is set to challenge even the most experienced maze adventurers.
For younger explorers, there’s the two-acre Dragon Mini-Maze, with a simpler design and colourful dragons to meet along the way, including Typhon, Viserion, and Pendragon.
This year, the Vintage Funfair has three new rides, delivering thrills for adults and children of all ages: a 1960s Octopus, a 1950s Twister, and Muffin the Mule.
More fun awaits on the 1937 Dodgems, Speedway, Chair-o-Plane, and kids rides. There are also football darts and numerous other games stalls, all of which offer a prize every time.
Visitors can also enjoy live entertainment in the Big Top and refreshments from the Cabin Café.
Organiser of The Great Ryedale Maze, James Cundall, said: “We are very excited to be bringing The Great Ryedale Maze back to the heart of North Yorkshire.
“Our Yorkshire Dragon maze will tell the story of the Vikings in North Yorkshire, while the Mini-Maze will promote an environmental message about climate change and plastic recycling.”
The Great Ryedale Maze is open every day until 5 September 2021.
