In 2012 we had an Olympic theme running through the Maze in our glorious tribute to the icon that is Usain Bolt. The Maze contained a huge image of Usain Bolt in his favourite victory pose the “lighting bolt”. The official National Forest Maize Maze takes on a new theme and design every year. It covers an area of ground the size of 8 full sized football pitches. With some 3.5 miles of pathways to tackle, including bridges and towers and a fantastic puzzle trail, it is truly the champion amongst mazes. 2012 was the first year we introduced a ‘mini-maze’ for younger children, those less able or for those who simply fancy a more sedate stroll.
