A NEW attraction has got the go-ahead to open, after the easing of lockdown restrictions.

The Great Yorkshire Maze, at Sherburn, between Malton and Scarborough, is opening on Wednesday, July 22, from 10am to 6pm.

The attraction comprises of two mazes, a vintage funfair, football darts and a big top with live entertainment for families.

“We are very excited to be able to bring a fabulous new event to families in Yorkshire and beyond,” said Georgina Wood, organiser of The Great Yorkshire Maze.

“We planted the maize back in May in a sea of uncertainty, hoping the Covid-19 pandemic would have abated so we could 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 larger of the two mazes, the specially-designed Yorkshire Rose Maze, comprises of nine acres of maize plants - more than 55,000 seeds - while the two-acre Scarecrow Mini-Maze offers a collection of scarecrows from the Wetwang Scarecrow Society.

The Vintage Funfair features restored rides and game stalls from the era of fairgrounds for both adults and children.

The rides include the 1930’s speedway, dodgems, chair-o-plane, crazy mirrors, hook-a-duck, flip-a-frog and football darts.

There will be picnic tables and benches socially-distanced around the fairground, inside the big top and refreshments on offer, including ice cream, cakes and barbecues bites.

All coronavirus guidance from the Government and Public Health England is being continuously monitored and followed.

The Great Yorkshire Maze will be open every day until September 6, with last admissions at 4.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £10.95 for adults and £9.95 for children (aged three to 15, under threes free), with concessions, family prices and discounted tickets for NHS staff and care workers and their families.
