Frequently Asked Questions

How do we find you?

We are situated at 493 Shands Road, Hornby (on the corner of Marshs Road and Shands Road).  If you are coming from Hornby direction, turn into Shands Road at the main Hornby Mall/Dressmart intersection.  Just keep following Shands Road all the way along past the Watties Factory and then past Marshs Road.  Our entrance is on the left hand side just after Marshs Road.

How long does it take?

It takes around 45 minutes to one hour for a visitor to complete the full challenge in each maze. If you plan on doing both mazes, allow around two hours. Why not bring a picnic and make a day of it?

What if I get hopelessly lost? What happens in an emergency?

You won't wander round for hours. In the wooden maze, our fencing panels have a knee-high gap beneath them. Our mazes are not difficult to escape from if you feel the need to do so. Tothill's Mazes is a unique opportunity to experience the feeling of getting lost without the worries!

Is it weather dependent?

If it is raining, please give us a call on 03 344 3253 to check that we are open. We reserve the right to close if the mazes are too slippery underfoot.

Can I bring my pushchair/wheelchair?

We have disabled toilets and carparking available.

Our wooden maze has a shingle surface and our corn maze has a soil, paddock surface. After rainfall, it can be slightly slippery or muddy, and therefore wheelchairs and pushchairs may be taken into the maze with a carer at your own risk. We have had customers who have enjoyed doing so. Be aware that both mazes have a tower with steps to climb. In both cases it is possible to complete the maze without climbing the tower.

In general, visitors will find the wooden maze more accessible.

Do you do birthday parties/school groups/corporates/christmas parties/holiday programmes/team building events?

Absolutely! Give us a call on 03 344 3253 to make a group booking for Tothill's Mazes.

Do you sell food/drink onsite?

We sell coffee, ice creams, drinks and snacks. You are welcome to bring your own food if you like. We have outdoor tables and a huge lawn - feel free to bring a picnic!

Do the mazes operate all year round?

Our wooden maze operates throughout the year. Our corn (maize) maze is seasonal and runs from late December until late April each year. Please check our times and prices page for further details.

What should I bring?

We are an outdoor venue. You should bring comfortable, sturdy outdoor footwear and warm clothing. Remember to bring a sunhat, sun block and a hat during the summer. Please bring a water bottle, especially if it's hot!

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes. We accept Visa, Mastercard, China UnionPay and Eftpos. Cheques are accepted from large groups by prior arrangement.
