Having had a quick briefing on the mazes from Helen and Hallane (there were three maize ones to choose from), Sous Chef J was keen to lead the way around the "Mad Hatters Tea Table".
Here the aim was to find all the stamp points and add items to the tea table picture in the Maze Game Card.
The stamps were easy to use although, in the rain, the card did become a little soggy.
Having completed our mission in good time, Sous Chef J chose to head off to the Fortune Maze where much fun was had... and coloured fingers were then matched to a chart (there are 120 combinations). This revealed Sous Chef J has a generous personality, which is very accurate.
Next, it was onto the Cat Call, which was based in a woody area, and was based on the Cheshire Cat. On the Maze Game Card, you record each cat's face and answer a question.
Luckily, we did not and, in fact, we easily found the snake maze and go-kart track (which is new for this year).
We didn't check out the restaurant, play area, farm zoo, walks or garden centre on this visit but there is plenty to fill your time if you want a full day out.
The Maize Maze entry is by way of a purchased wrist band and this is valid for the whole day - and to get value for money, we'd certainly recommend you make full use of the admission cost by visiting the whole site and popping back into the maize mazes more than once. The mazes stretch over 10 acres so there is a lot of walking to do - wear sturdy shoes, the ground is uneven and, sadly, the site is not ideal for wheelchair users (although on drier days it should be passable with assistance) also dogs are not allowed.
