The last few days we were busy with work, Saturday we went shopping and Sunday we’ve decided to stay in. Yesterday, at lunch we had a few hours and as I’ve read about Brimstage Maize Maze on a blog, we decided to give it a try. We’ve been to Brimstage Hall a few times, as it’s very close to where we live, but we didn’t know about the maze. At almost £8 per person, I thought it’s a little overpriced, but I was so wrong! We had a lot of fun and the entrance fee fully deserves the price tag and it covers the 3 mazes and different attractions, like Pedal Go-Karts, Zip line and a few more for smaller kids.
A few words about the maze. The maze has a new design every year and it’s made in the maize crop. There are clues and riddles along the maze, to make it a little more interesting. This is an aerial view of the 2014 maze. The elephant in the right corner is the small maze and there are another 2, bigger.
I wasn’t expecting such big crops, it was a lovely surprise. The weather was changing a lot, it was sunny then cloudy and so on.
At a crossroad I was trying to look scared, but hubby took pictures only after I was bursting into laugh. It was so easy to act like children.
Hubby told me the wellies weren’t necessary and it was true, except for this part. So I still think that my butterfly wellies were very handy.
We finished the 3rd maze!
After finishing the maze, we went to the courtyard where are the attractions. It was pretty hard to keep my balance on top of that pipe in wellies. But I do felt like a fashion model.
The Pedal Go-Kart track was so much fun! We both loved it. As it was a Monday there weren’t a lot of visitors at the track in that time, so we had it for ourselves and even race a bit. As I started from pole position and the track was narrow, hubby was unable to overtake me. All those hours of watching F1 races helped a lot and I defended my place fiercely. It’s also true that after 5 laps I was exhausted.
Hubby convinced me that the Zip line is for adults too, like the Go-Karts.
It was great, loved every second on it!
We had a great couple of hours. I couldn’t recommend more this place.
