The Maize Maze at Penshurst Place returns from July 13 until September 1

Eco-friendly family fun will be found at the heart of Kent's biggest Maize Maze this summer.

The temporary attraction, which is redesigned every year, will launch once again at Penshurst Place on July 13.

The Maize Maze encompasses three distinct puzzles and for 2019 is grown in a hot air balloon design with an exploration and discovery theme.

All three challenges include accompanying game cards to help participants negotiate their chosen challenge.

The Mini Maze is best suited to younger visitors and is described as a small 'sample' of Penshurst's larger maze.

It has been designed to help small visitors enjoy the fun and adventure of a maze challenge without being too daunted by the size and this year young explorers will need to match balloon shapes and colour from the history of balloon travel.

The Sequential Maze is ideal for those looking for a go in the maze with a more competitive edge with the puzzles requiring adventurers to collect coordinates in a certain order to safely guide their imaginary “hot air balloon” to land rather than in the sea.

Whilst the Main Maze, with its Around The World theme, is ideal for groups looking to work together around checkpoint stamps which visitors will need to find and mark on their passport game cards.

And if anyone has time to take a selfie during the maze, sharing to social media with the hashtag #PenshurstMaizeMaze could see you entered into a competition to win a family season ticket for 2020 worth £79.

Penhurst's maze will be open from July 13 until September 1 and entrance is included in the standard garden entry ticket. It is open everyday during the summer from 11am until 6pm, but the last entry is at 5pm.
