Pick Your Own Pumpkins & Halloween Maize Maze

Tickets Available now!

Welcome to Maidenhead

We look forward to seeing you in our Halloween Maze Spooktacular!

For Autumn 2022 we have a fabulous range of activities for you all to enjoy at Maidenhead.

For the budding pumpkinologists there are 10 acres of pumpkin to pick, for the craft, lots to create, make and take, and for the intrepid journey into our new Halloween Maize Maze is not to be missed!

Parking and entry is free and booking for the Halloween maze is required.

Halloween Maze

An October night, in the dark, the rustle of old Maize in the breeze... You are lost and you can feel something watching from the shadows but can't see them... yet!

Welcome to Spooky Fun in the Maize Maze

We will have 2 types of Halloween Maze experiences. Our day time maze is child friendly and not too spooky. Evenings in the Maze are dark, fun and a little unnerving - are you brave enough?

PYO Pumpkins

PYO Pumpkins is our favourite activity alongside getting lost in Mazes and eating ice cream! We have 1000s and 1000s and 1000s of pumpkins in our fields all waiting to be picked, carved and eaten!

Put your wellies on, grab a wheelbarrow and go for a leisurely walk, or a crazy screaming run, depending on your mood, and discover which Pumpkins choose to go home with you this year!

We are also happy to teach you some Pumpkinology! Pumpkinology has, until now, only been taught at schools for witches & wizards, but we think it is the most exciting subject in the world so have some wonderful secrets to share!
