The theme for 2012 is Tractors & Trotters, the maze’s are interactive including rubbings, Maze-0-Vision, games sheets and more activities in the Fun Park for all to enjoy. Get Lost @ Copley’s Corn Maze!

Fun Park Activities
All the activities are chosen and built for use by everybody, children and adults, so ensure you try everything and don’t be embarrassed, we know all the adults are really desperate to have a go! And they are all included in the admission price.

Jumping Pillow
This has to be the most fun ever! It’s bold, it’s bright and it’s stripped. A great big pillow filled with air! It’s the largest jumping pillow available in the UK, 50ft x 30ft and 4 ½ft tall in the middle! We first came across jumping pillows at Cherry Crest Farms in Lancaster County PA, at which point, once we’d all stopped laughing, we decided we had to get one.

Mini Wagon Ride
Climb aboard the mini wagon ride and drive through the maize pulled by our quad bike, great for children of all ages. Interesting fact about this barrel ride is that it was made by the Amish – another first for the UK.

Bale Mountain
The simplest of activities yet one of the most popular, a huge pile of D1000 bales in a pyramid shape which children climb,, up, down, run around, play hide and seek, using their imaginations and having a ball.

Tyre Mountain NEW for 2012
Tyre Mountain is similar in design to Bale Mountain, made from super-sized construction tyres, piled high and then filled with sand to make them stable and topped with innovative child friendly rubber bark – Jungle Bark, avoiding children getting sandy or damp!

McCormick Tractors Circuit NEW for 2012
Pedal tractors have long been a favourite in the Farm Shop itself, so for 2012 we have loads of McCormick Pedal Tractors for all ages of children, from toddlers to teens, to ride on. McCormick tractors are well known in the area as many were made at Doncaster, hence the connection. Make sure you upload your McCormick photos to Farmer Copley’s Facebook for the online competition.

Copley’s Corn Maze Slide NEW for 2012
You will be able to see the slide on site before you see anything else. The slide is 25ft high at the platform, emblazoned with Farmer Cob, Corn and Pumpkins. You can climb up and slide down as many times as you like or you can stop before you’re worn out. Once you’ve raised your heart rate, treat yourself at the Corn Café to a well earned Latte or Ice Cream.

Dino Carts
These are serious Pedal Carts, adjust the seat to fit your leg length then off you go, Dads can race their children or you could try endurance!

Corn Café
The Corn Café provides proper coffee the same as we are famous for in MOO Café. The menu includes freshly cooked burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, popcorn, scones with clotted cream and homemade jam.

Alternatively the wrist band you get at admissions will allow you to wonder over to MOO Café and have lunch, see the animals (in the small open farm) and pop back into the Maze and fun park later, with no hassle. See we’ve thought of most things! We also have the ice cream van, with Birchfield Dairies Homemade Jersey ice cream.

Copley’s Corn Maze NEW Design 2012
For 2012 the design is Tractors & Trotters. The interactive game sheets ensure there is plenty to do for all, rubbings for younger children, clue collection for other children and adults, and a QR game for you techno’s.

Be sure to get your Maze-o-Vision glasses though; they will make life a lot easier. They are available at admissions.

Safety – we have a video briefing upon entry to the maize, Corn Rangers in the maize itself, and flags for people walking through the maze.

The Maze
We are proud to announce that the design for 2012 is Tractors & Trotters. You will be given a gaming sheet upon entry to the maze, with the Maze-o-Vision map on the back (don’t forget your glasses!), a crayon for rubbings and you receive a pen with your glasses.

Listen to the video briefing and then off you go into the maze. You can access the Café ½ way through for refreshments and we also have an emergency exit.

This Maze design with gaming sheets has to be one of the best in the UK, if not the best. So come and judge for yourself. Allow up to 2 hours to complete the Maze, record to date is 45 mins!

The gaming stations are littered throughout the maze and there are a lot so it helps keep everybody interested and enthused to find the next station. Happy Hunting!

Children’s Parties
Looking for something different to celebrate your son or daughter’s birthday with, then please look at the Party Leaflet below. In 2011 they were fabulous, the reviews were a-Mazing and the children loved them as did the parents, happy children = happy parents.

Upon booking your child’s party you can send the downloadable party invitations out (we also give you the thank you notes to print off). On the day you will have your own private party tent for the duration of the party tea. The party tea is a traditional homemade tea including real butterfly buns. We will discuss your requirements at booking. Once the party is finished you are free to stay for the rest of the day, until closing if you want, and there’s no rushing, all adding up to making a special day all the more special. Please speak to Heather or Bryan on 01977 600 200 for more details.
