THE MOST AMAZING MAIZE MAZE IN DORSET

AT THE TOY BARN IN SHERBORNE…

The Giant Maize Maze at The Toy Barn in Sherborne, Dorset, is open throughout summer from 20thJuly.

With a new design for 2020 inspired by Dinosaurs, you’ll need to choose your path wisely or face re-tracing your steps… There will be an anagram to solve along the way. Find the eye of the dinosaur to see the sunflowers.

The maze is open 6 days a week throughout the summer holidays from 10am to 5pm (last entrance to the maze will be 3.30pm).

Tickets cost £6.00 per person (under 4s free).

Please Note: As a working farm there are often tractors and lorries coming through the car park; please watch your children and be safe. The main farm is always off limits to the general public.

Please check our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages before planning your visit to confirm opening days/times. Some walkways in the maze are narrow therefore wheelchairs and pushchairs are not recommended due to the uneven and soft ground. It is advisable to wear stout footwear. If it is wet conditions wellingtons are advised. Dogs are welcome and must be kept on a lead at all times.

MAZE RULES (DUE TO COVID-19)

Please respect other peoples distance at all times. The 2 meter rule applies throughout the site.

CARPARK: There is a tap and sink in the car park next to the portable loo for washing hands.

THE SHOP: There is disinfectant hand gel as you enter the shop. We are operating a one way system and limiting the entrance to the maze to one group of a maximum of 6 people every 15 minutes. The main toy shop area will be children free and a maximum of 4 people at any one time.

We are afraid that there is no café this year however cold drinks and snacks and ice creams are available in the shop. You are also welcome to bring a picnic with you.

THE PLAY AREA: It has been stripped back due to the difficulty of protecting against covid-19. There are no ride-on’s (go-karts and Didicars) this year.  There is a loo and hand washing facilities in the play area. Some picnic tables and chairs will be available to use.

TRAMPOLINES: There are only 2 trampolines available. They are not possible to clean so please wash your hands before and after use.

 CLIMBING FRAMES: Again difficult to clean so please wash hands before and after use. We will do our best to sanitise the slides as often as possible throughout the day.

THE BARN: The Barn will be closed and there will be no access to the toys and seating.

THE MAIZE MAZE: We have designed the maze with a separate Entrance and Exit. You may find it difficult to solve the maze and in the process you may meet other groups.

WHAT TO DO: someone will need to back up to a path and make way for the other group to pass or there are lots of alternative routes to take, so try one of those and avoid one and another as best as you can.
