Families can challenge themselves to a special space mission to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of man landing on the moon.

To mark the iconic achievement of the Apollo 11 mission, a towering maize crop has been created at Lakeland Farm Park near Kendal in the South Lakes.

The new design, which features a spaceman, the Earth and the NASA logo, provides a two-hour adventure and commemorates the moment Neil Armstrong and Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin walked on the moon on July 20, 1969.

The attraction also has a new arena for animal activities and talks focusing on the farm animals, including sheep, pigs, ferrets, llamas, alpacas, goats, horses and Winston the donkey.

Also new for 2019 – the Lakeland Farm Park’s 15th birthday year - are an underground tube maze, a vintage tractor and a large inflatable indoor bouncy castle.

There are also indoor and outdoor karts, soft play areas, tractor and trailer rides, giant draughts and trampolines.

The Apollo 11-inspired maze is open daily from 10am to 6pm until September 3 and then at weekends until September 29. Moonlit maze adventures will run between 6pm and 10pm on September 21 and 28, as the space theme continues.
