At The Great Ryedale Maze
Returning to the North Yorkshire countryside for its third year this summer, The Great Ryedale Maze promises a great day out for adults, teenagers and children, with two mazes, an action-packed Vintage Funfair, Game Stalls, Football Darts, a Big Top with live entertainment for families, Bale Mountain and tasty food and ice creams at the Cabin Café.
Located in Sherburn, just off the A64 between Scarborough and Malton at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds, the popular attraction opens for the summer holidays on Friday 15 July and closes on Sunday 4th September.
Taking its theme this year from the dinosaurs that used to roam Yorkshire millions of years ago, the larger of the two mazes comprises nine acres of maize plants and over two miles of paths with fun clues along the way to challenge the navigation skills, while for younger adventurers there’s the two-acre Mini-Maze.
This year the entry ticket includes as many rides as you like at the Vintage Funfair, as well as access to both mazes and the Big Top entertainment, with adults paying the same price as children.
Visitors can ride a motorbike aboard the 1936 Speedway, race around the Brooklands Dodgems from 1937, go for a spin on the 1950s Chair-o-Plane, and for the thrill-seekers the 1960s Twister and Octopus await. Children can climb aboard the oldest ride Hush Hush the Train dating from 1934, while Muffin the Mule, Bumble Bee, Toy Set and Swing Boats bring further fun.
The Game Stalls offer a chance to impress the family and win a prize every time – have a go at the Sharp Shooters Rifle Range or Hot Shots Basketball, then try Goblets, Hook-a-Duck or Flip-a-Frog. For some competitive fun there’s Football Darts – instead of throwing a dart, budding footballers can take aim at the giant velcro dartboard and show off their striking skills!
There are picnic tables around the fairground and inside the Big Top for visitors to relax and enjoy a range of family-friendly live entertainment at set times throughout the day, with a tasty bite, a Berry Best Ice Cream or even a glass of wine from the fully-licensed Cabin Café.
Organiser of The Great Ryedale Maze, James Cundall says “We’ve introduced unlimited funfair rides and the same price for children and adults this year, so visitors can enjoy better value for their money and stay as long as they like enjoying all the rides we have to offer, as well as the two mazes and entertainment in the Big Top.”
