Trail of Screams Closes
Saturday, October 12th, 2019

We have received several questions as to the status of the Trail of Screams haunted corn maze. We are no longer doing the haunted maze due to several factors that I have listed below. This was a hard decision for us but it was for the best. We apologize to all of our loyal customers that came each year. It is just not something we could do anymore.

-Amount of time to set the maze up was very lengthy and took a lot of time for the Volunteers.
-Lack of Volunteers was a big one as well. We cannot get people to Volunteer to be a Firefighter let alone Volunteer to help with this.
-Weather played a big factor, last year it was so wet and rainy that we never even got to open one day!
-The cost to keep everything going and add new items was expensive to the point we really did not make much profit.
-If you don't know, corn should not be planted in the same field each year. It does not grow as well as it should, you are supposed to rotate crops. We could not so it made the maze very brittle.
-Another example of weather being a factor is that if we did the maze this year, it would be almost too dry to have any electronics in it and the corn would break as soon as it was touched.
-The biggest reason was the fact that if we had an emergency run it delayed our response since members had to find their way out of the maze to get to the trucks. This also caused long delays with customers trying to go through the maze. They had to wait until we got back to enter.

Again we are sorry for not having it but our number 1 priority is protecting the community, not having a corn maze. There are many other options around and we highly recommend the Deputy Fire Department haunted hay ride in Deputy Indiana. We have given them several items from our maze to use for their event. We hope you understand and thank you for the times you came out.

Chief Jason Long
