Doctor Who: Giant Dalek-Shaped Maze Opened in York

York Maze has undergone a bit of a renovation recently – and the new design for the giant maze has been revealed… it’s an enormous Dalek.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary, a giant 300-metre tall Dalek-shaped maze has been opened in York – and it also includes the faces of the first and eleventh Doctors – William Hartnell and Matt Smith. Colin Baker was also present at the opening ceremony of the maze. Baker said:

It is fantastic to see how much interest there is in the 50th anniversary of the show. I have been invited to join events all over the world this year, but what York Maze have created with their giant maize maze has to be one of the most imaginative ways to mark the 50th anniversary I have seen. Who would have thought almost thirty years after I played the Doctor that the show would continue to go from strength to strength reaching a new generation of fans.

It is great that children and their families will be able to have their own Doctor Who inspired adventures in the York Maze this summer.

The maze is currently open to the public.
