Today we took a trip to Richmond to visit at the Richmond Maze – Which is actually two mazes in total! The weather was quite warm and the children where all excited. The trip around the first maze proved to be a bit puzzling to us, after quite a while of walking around and finding dead ends, we were guided to the centre of the maze by another group of our friends.
The second maze we found to be much easier to navigate. It had no dead ends, so if you went the wrong way you could be walking around it for hours. This seemed to be the issue for the other group of friends who visited the maze with us. Our Friends, after finding the middle of the second maze, seemed to get lost on their way out and after about 30 minutes walking around in circles they rang our mobile to ask for help! We assisted them with providing them a map as we could not get close enough to them to help them actually find their way out..
Thankfully another family were also enjoying the maze and assisted in navigating the way back to the front of the maze for themselves and our friends and everything turned out fine!
A lot of fun and also frustration was had, and the only thing I can say is make sure you carry a drink bottle when attempting the mazes, because if you get lost it can be a long time between drinks! – oh and grab a map before you venture in!
