SEE VIDEO: Wimblington farmer opens Minion maze

If you’re looking for somewhere to take any Minions-obsessed youngsters in your family this summer, then help may be closer than you think.

That’s because a Fenland farmer has created a giant maze based on the popular characters.

Edward Gowler has created what is thought to be the world’s biggest Minion in one of the maize fields at his farm in Wimblington.

And the Skylark Maize Maze, which opens for the summer holidays this morning, was inspired by his six-year-old son Henry.

Mr Gowler said: “The whole family are big Minions fans, but Henry is Minions mad. He has a Minions duvet cover, Minions pyjamas, t-shirts, even a Minions tooth brush.

“He has been pestering me to base this year’s maze design on Minions, and with the recent release of the new movie I thought it would make a great theme.”

The maze is cut from a 12 acre field of maize plants and the Minion itself is believed to be the biggest ever created, measuring more than 500 feet in height.

And visitors can find several more Minions hidden in the maze and collect their favourite food, bananas.

The maze is located next to the Skylark garden centre and country store in Manea Road, Wimblington.

It is open daily from 10am to 5pm, with last entry at 4pm, until September 6. From then on, it will open at weekends until the end of September.

Admission is £9 for adults, £8 for children aged three to 15 and senior citizens, and free for under-threes.

Family tickets for groups of up to four are also available, priced £32.
