As someone who knows a little bit about farming, the land you grow corn/maize on must either be heavily supplemented with nutrients (which bearing in mind costs a lot of money, and the field is not really big enough to make a decent crop out of either) or be left fallow for at least one year and sometimes allow livestock on it, if you want to continually use it for the same crop.
Now I cannot see them allowing livestock on it, if I'm honest!
There has also been a field there for 3 years at least, so its only natural that this year or the next we'll be seeing the end of it, at least for the time being. It's literally impossible to grow any crop on and if they did decide to grow it this year, it would be awful.
I definately agree with that, and to be honest I thought only the first years crop (2007) was decent enough for the attraction. The corn for the last 2 years seemed a bit poor and certainly not tall enough.
I still think they could do a scare maze in a forest, blair witch style. That would be incredible. Plus the all the props they invested in for last year could be recycled.
Thats another thing that bothers me about Scarefest, its the investment in new attractions. Now we all love new stuff but if they'd stuck to the same old things the money could go towards park wide theming and more actors. Take a look at TOTT last year, that was 90% new equipment which must have cost a hell of alot to put together, and i still think there was at least 1 more year to be had out of the bloodfest banquet theme.
