Reaseheath’s superhero maze challenges families

Local families are having to summon superhuman powers when they visit Reaseheath College’s giant maze challenge this summer.

The theme of the Nantwich college’s popular holiday attraction is ‘Superhero’ and  leads visitors deep into the giant forage maize crop in search of Maze Man’s heroic friends such as Batman and Robin.

Two mazes are on offer, a full size version which takes around two hours to complete and a smaller maze suitable for younger or less active visitors. There is also an outdoor play area, crafts and mini tractors and a picnic area.

Maze Team Leader Rosanagh Bailey said: “We aim to provide a really good day out of affordable fun for all the family.  The Superhero theme is really popular and we’ve had a lot of visitors commenting on how much they’ve enjoyed their day with us.”

The maze is open daily from 10am to 5pm and in the evenings on Wednesdays until the end of August. Groups, businesses and organisations can also book the maze exclusively and complete a couple of hours of team fun with a BBQ or hog roast.

Families can enjoy double the fun by combining their maze visit with a trip round Reaseheath’s zoo, which is connected to the maze by a nature trail.

The zoo is based at the college’s animal management centre, which houses over 1,000 animals and caters for over 800 students. Residents include ring tailed lemurs, meerkats, tapirs, spider monkeys, cotton top tamarins, birds of prey, rabbits, guinea pigs and a variety of reptiles, amphibians and insects.

A combination ticket admitting two adults and two children to both attractions is £30, with under threes allowed in free.
