UK%E2%80%99s First Interactive%2C Multi-sensory Maze To Open At Warwick Castle %7C Group Travel News

Warwick Castle is launching its newest attraction – The Horrible Histories Maze: Get Lost in Time! – a first for the UK.

The experience will open on the 19th March and will offer visitors an intriguing experience as they ‘Get Lost in Time’.

The focus of the maze is to bring history to life in a gripping and gruesome way, as is known with Horrible Histories.

The aim of the maze is not to reach the centre, but to instead reorder the muddle that Rattus Rattus has made of time – and then visitors must make their way out.

Equipped with a passport, visitors will be challenged to solve clues and get their passports stamped in each area of the maze.

En route, they will be faced with all the gore that comes along with Horrible Histories as they encounter Normans, Stuarts, gunpowder plotters and witches.

The experience is inspired by the geometric mazes of the past and is multi-sensory, featuring moving walls, interactive puzzles, stone, wicker and water, as well as being crammed with Terry Deary’s facts and Martin Brown’s cartoons.

Geoff Spooner, general manager at Warwick Castle, commented, “Warwick Castle always aims to bring our unique history alive in original and contemporary ways, so it’s totally fitting that in the anniversary year of Capability Brown’s birth we should reinvent part of our beautiful grounds. The Horrible Histories Maze means our visitors may ‘Get Lost in Time’ for a while, but they’ll be entertained and learn lots while they do.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Horrible Histories again after the success of our Wicked Warwick live stage-show last year and their 20th anniversary celebrations held at Warwick Castle in 2013. It’s a perfect partnership for us; we have the most authentic settings for Terry Deary’s great story-telling, in all its glory, gore and gruesomeness. Our team is really looking forward to making the most of this exciting multisensory maze.”

Upcoming events at Warwick Castle

The maze will open during a busy year of celebrations at Warwick Castle. This year is the 300th anniversary of Capability Brown, who created Warwick Castle’s gardens in 1750.

A new ‘debating tour’ will celebrate this fact, teaching groups about the castle’s links to Capability Brown, and asking if his style at the time was a good or bad thing.

In July, the new Knight’s Village Medieval Lodges will open in the wooded area of in the castle’s 64 acre grounds, adding to the glamping accommodation.

Entry to The Horrible Histories Maze: Get Lost in Time! is included in general admission.
