Our day out this week was to York maze. We were meeting my sister and brother in law there, so hubby also took the day off work. We arrived at about 10.45am and there was a small queue to get in. However it didn’t take long and we were greeted by Mr Cob.
We headed round to the main section and the bouncy pillows. The boys enjoyed those.
We also headed into the maize maze itself. This year it is Dr who theme. So at the entrance to the maze we checked to see if the Dr was around.
We then wandered around the maze looking for numbers 1-6 and the code to enter a competition. In previous years the maize has been short enough for hubby to look over and see the numbers. Not this year, so we did get lost lol.
We found all the answers and put the boy’s entries into the box. We had time to play crazy maze golf before we had a picnic. We then went in a colour trail maze and a mirror maze before heading to the inflatable slide and the cobstical course.
Next we headed to see the animals. We had just missed the pig racing, but the boys didn’t mind. They were excited about a house of confusion. It had an upsidedown room and a mirror maze as well as other illusions. 3yo managed to run splat into a mirror. :-\
The boys then enjoyed playing in the sand park and baby enjoyed knocking down towers with daddy in the construction area. There was time for more bouncing on the pillows before dragging them home screaming! A great family day out.
I also must mention the reaction i got to one of my most common questions when on a day out with my boys. “do you know if there are traces of nuts in these?” I wasn’t greeted with the normal blank face and “i don’t know”. i was pointed towards a sign on the wall which (in this case) listed every sweet they were selling individually with a list of ingredients underneath. Happy Happy. Unfortunately they all may have contained traces of nuts. However i was so so happy that someone had taken the time to make my life easier. Thank you for that @yorkmaze
