Getting lost with IAT NE branch
On 13th July, yet another exciting day out was put on by the wonderful people at the Institute of Animal Technology. This time, the North East Branch organised a day out at the York Maze on its first day of opening in 2019.
Alanah, our Social Media Executive at Datesand, took her niece and nephew to the family event for the day, which gave her the perfect excuse to just be a big kid again!
Each year, the York Maze has a new theme and this year, Europe’s largest maize maze paid tribute to Lion King! Alanah managed to conquer the maze in just over half an hour – not bad going!
There were all sorts of other activities on the day for all to enjoy. As well as the giant maize maze, there was also a Jurassic maze, the maze of illusions and a mini mineshaft maze! Alanah also had a go on the ‘cobstacle course’ – a big inflatable corn-themed obstacle course; the ‘popcorn pillow’ which was essentially one long bouncy castle; a slightly damp ‘Angry Crows’ drive-thru experience; corn on the club mini-golf; pig racing; a mini animal sanctuary and her favourite of all: ‘House of Cornfusion’.
The ‘House of Cornfusion’ was a building that you had to make your way around, each room playing a trick on the mind. This included a tunnel that made it seem as though the whole room was spinning, a room that made you feel super tall (especially for someone so short…) and a slanted room that would not let you stand straight!
All in all, it was yet another fabulous day organised by the IAT team and Alanah would like to thank them for such a great day.
