“Fun for big kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2012 via mobile

Me and my partner both mid 20s decided to go to the maze. You get a pencil and clue card to help you solve a puzzle as you go around.

A lot of the maze is very similar so you do end up lost thinking have I been here before. The added clues make the maze more interesting and overall had a laugh.

“What a treasure - everyone will surely love this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

I must confess this brought out the competitive streak in me.. I went with my husband and we separated at the entrance to the maze and took the quiz (you have to collect clues from throughout the maze and enter them onto a sheet - the combined clues will then help you solve the riddle in the centre of the maze). We spent about 2 hours collecting the clues, having a giggle and thoroughly enjoying ourselves. Our paths did cross but we carried on until we met in the centre - about the same time and then proceeded to eventually solve the riddle - you have to try it. Located just behind Birdland, many visitors may miss this gem, but make sure it's on your itinerary! Highly recommended!

“Surprisingly Fun & Challenging”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

The maze did absolutely work...you quickly became disoriented and keeping or creating a mental map was a challenge. The clues were also not obvious. It took our group nearly an hour to sort it all out and solve it.

Just don't too it if rain has been recent as it can get muddy.

“Great fun and more - do give it a try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2012

With fond memories of this attraction from when we visited it a few years ago we made a special effort to go again when we were back in the area, and we were not disappointed. Not only was there the great fun of the original hunt for clues, but the extra puzzle which they had introduced was the icing on the cake.
It can so often be that when you revisit something again it is not as good, but that was definitely not the case here, and we will look forward to going again in the future to see what new challenge they have dreamed up.

“Great fun - Not your average Maze!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

If you are thinking of going to Burton, this is a must do!

Without spoiling the surprise... the maze has picture tiles dotted around for you to find as you wonder through. Jot these down on a little card given to you at the entrance and when you reach the centre it will spell out instructions to complete the quest!

I went with my boyfriend and we had a great time finding the clues. I think this is perfect for kids or adults - a really fun activity if you get into the spirit of it! Definitely for those of you who have not lost your youthful enthusiasm!
