    First year ever, our corn isn't doing as well as it should. Little
    on the short side in spots. Always planted a bit late so it stays
    green as long as possible into October. Pretty worn out by the
    end of the run.

    Have discussed building walls in spots. But that could be a lot of
    work, lot of cost. Most of all, it would change how we as monsters
    run to and fro. We're good, but even we can't go through walls.

    Looks like the best backup plan is to use my woods for the haunting
    this year. Already cut, has for years been my "private" maze. All trails
    are 6 foot wide and better.

    But my woods are hilltop property. Flat enough once you're there.

    So...we're talking of adding a hayride effect up and down the hill.
    Probably 450-500 foot up, same down.

    And my property. I want EVERY scene handicap accessible. Will be
    offering "golf-cart ride to the handicap" is we do the woods this year.
    Monster driven, photograph given. we've had parts of it for wheelchair
    access before. Never the whole thing.

    I feel that there may be many people with slight handicaps who would
    love to be able to take part in a haunted halloween. Three golf carts here
    with seat belts.

    I don't know of a single Halloween activity in the area that can accept
    handicapped people.

    And my woods is quite a bit larger than the cornfield. We can lay out some
    props that have not been used for years. There's a real cool troll bridge.
    A few complete room displays stored away.

    So tonights question to you is, Would you enjoy the hayride as extra plus?
    And for the parents of a handicapped child, if there was a haunted maze in
    your area that catered to your needs, would you go? Would you seek it out?

    Still a few weeks to go, and we all hope the corn makes it. But in case it doesn't
    we now have a backup plan.

    Great Ideas and yes I would. Not really a halloween handicap place but just for fun Google Morgans Wonderland.

    Sounds cool. Woods are scarier than a corn field anyways.
    Well, I've never been in a cornfield, so take it for what it's worth. [​IMG]
    We going to get pix?

    It sounds like such a great idea, I would at least in part, scrap the cornfield idea for the woods. That would be so wonderful for handicapped children and adults alike to be able to enjoy your Halloween experience!

    That's a wonderful idea & awesome of you to want to do it. I would definitely look for something like that if I (just a big kid) or one of my children were handicapped!
