The secret is out – Skylark’s maize maze for 2023 is going to celebrate 100 years of Disney.
Iconic images of Mickey & Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy have been intricately carved into Skylark’s giant 12-acre maize field created using over 2 million plants, making the world’s largest depiction of the four loved Disney characters!
Visitors to the Skylark Garden Centre in Manea Road, Wimblington will be able to follow over 3 kilometres of pathways in the Disney themed attraction to complete the Bug themed quest and solve the maize maze challenge.
The fun yard includes the upgraded Pesky Pigeon Tractor Ride, pedal go-kart track, jumping pillow, Water Wars, giant slide complex and pig racing.
Mickey and Minnie will be making special appearances throughout the summer at Skylark
It took the events team a week of toiling in the fields to design and cut out the pathways in the maize field using a rotavator.
The paths are carefully cut out using GPS technology to plot the image to create a maze for visitors to explore throughout the summer, think of it as a dot to dot, but on a 12-acre field!
Event manager, Bart Woodbine said: “My family and especially my son are huge Disney fans, our favourite film is ‘The Little Mermaid’ so when we heard it was Disney’s 100th birthday and there was going to be a new ‘The Little Mermaid’ film, it was an easy decision as to what to theme our Maize Maze this year”.
He added: “This is going to be a really great summer and we can’t wait to open the doors on the 20th of July.”
