Millets Maize Maze 2023 Review

We’ve always enjoyed a visit to Millets Maize Maze and this year they’ve gone even bigger with lots more activities to keep the kids busy and covering a broad range of ages.

As you enter you come to the games zone which has even more than last year.  It’s got a wonderful down to earth feel with unique challenges too.  This zone used to be more for the little ones and this year really felt that it could cover all ages.

My bigger boys got stuck into the giant board games first and then quickly spotted an area with 3 challenges. The first was a mini golf challenge, the second involved rolling golf balls down a long zig zag board and seeing how far you could get them (they got very competitive at this).  The huge catapult was a hit complete with bean bags as ammunition.

There’s everything from basketball hoops to skittles and hoopla.  Lots of younger kids to enjoy too.  They can look after the animals in the mini farmyard, play in the sandpit or zip around on the ride on tractors.

I think we could have easily stayed here for most of our stay!  Venturing onwards there is of course the maize maze as well a wooden fort maze.  The maize maze has three options and you could do them all if you wanted.  There’s a small, medium and large so you can judge how long little legs will last.  We decided to go for the midi maize which had a minecraft gaming theme.

Each child gets an activity pack when they arrive with has a booklet for the mazes and stickers.    We found all the stations along the way (thanks totally to my eldest and I can take no credit at all, at least I didn’t lose a child in the maze this year).

There’s a viewing point that you can climb up to in the maze too which is great.



The much loved pedal go karts are back again this with a longer track.  There are singles and you can adjust how far back the seat goes to adapt to different lengths of legs which mean both adults and kids can have a go.

There are also doubles so if you have a younger kids they can join you too.  It was quiet when we first arrived so my boys pretty much had unlimited time and then later on the day as it got busier they had someone on hand to time kids which meant everyone got a go.

If you’re after some crazy golf, Millets Farm have their own adventure golf course on the farm which is separate to the maize maze event.  Covering the area which used to be golf are now loads of hay bales – run, climb, scramble and leap.  There’s also an assault course in this area and we loved the frying pan to clang at the end for the winner.

There are also woodlands to explore filled with trails, tractors, musical instruments and hungry hippos, pretty much everywhere you turn there seems to be something different.  Really feels like you could make this a full day out this year rather than a half day.

Once you buy your entry, they give you a wrist band so you can come and go from the site, so you can also wonder over to the farm and meet the animals, have fun in the playground there or visit the farm shop.
