More Fun at Southwold Maize Maze Play Park!

Southwold Maize Maze extends play park weekends and launches birthday parties, as they gear up for summer season

Southwold Maize Maze has announced the addition of an extra day to its spring weekend schedule. The Play Park facilities will now also be open on Fridays, in addition to Saturdays and Sundays, from now until mid-July.

Entry, includes access to all facilities within the Play Park. This includes three jumping pillows, double zip line, ride on tractors, nest swing, climbing towers and slides, downpour derby water play, and two giant sand pits.

The Play Park will also be open every day of the May half term (24 May – 2 June), offering the perfect day out for all ages. Facilities are open from 9.30am – 4.30pm, with last entries at 2.30pm.

Also new for 2024 is the option to purchase a Spring Season Ticket, which enables as many visits as you like during the Spring Play Park opening hours. Prices start at £22 for one child and one adult, and extend to £94 for six people, including one adult.

Owner Bella Hall, who has managed the leisure attraction since 2005, says the extended weekends will provide more choice for visitors.

“With so much on offer in the Play Park for all ages, we wanted to make sure there was another day available for those with younger children during term time,” she explains.

“The addition of the Spring Season Tickets also enables repeat visitors to get more value for money if they intend to visit us multiple times before we open fully for the summer.”

Old Hall Southwold Café and Walks, which shares the site overlooking the River Blyth, will also be open for the duration of the May half term.


Parties at the Play Park!

The popular venue on the Suffolk coast is also launching birthday parties this year. For those looking for parties based around outdoor fun and adventure, parents can book Play Park Parties and Maze Parties for groups of 10-16 children. A morning and afternoon slot will be available each day.

The Play Park Parties can be booked on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays, and will run up until 14th July, before the Maize Maze is open for the summer season. At £12.95 per child, this package includes full access to the play park equipment, two hours sole use of the party room, a choice of hot or cold food, and a free return for the birthday child.

Maze Parties will run from 20th July until 8th September, and will be available any day of the week. At £16.95 per child, this package will also include full access to both mazes and the pedal go-karts.

“After numerous enquiries and requests, we are so delighted to launch Play Park Parties and Maze Parties this year,” says Bella.

“Parents are always looking for something different for their children’s birthday parties, and the Play Park and Maize Maze offers just that, with plenty of equipment and activities to keep groups of children entertained.”


2024 Maize Maze Design

Eagle eyes may have spotted the maze crop being planted on Southwold Maize Maze’s social media accounts last week. Although this year’s design is yet to be revealed, this year’s maize maze seed has gone in the ground, and will soon be popping up from underneath the soil.

The maze was precision-drilled using Greenstar satellite technology with the help of Carl Pitelen from Ben Burgess who helped to set it up on the drill. Dickie Barnes contractors did the drilling, working to a design created by Mazescape in conjunction with Bella.

The 2024 maze design, which will be a collaboration with a local charity, will be revealed at the beginning of July. In the meantime, for further information about the upcoming summer maize maze season and to book spring Play Park tickets: https://www.southwoldmaizemaze.co.uk/prices-2024
