    Hey all, I have a possibly dangerous idea for my opening room - an indoor corn maze. Because of that, I need to know a few things.

    1. Where do I go to get corn stalks to make a maze?
    2. Does anyone sell synthetic corn?
    3. Will standard flame proofing work or does this fire hazard mean I should scrap the idea all together?

    Allen Hopps has a great tutorial for making your own corn. Not to mention a wealth of other tricks and tips at his Stiltbeast Studios YouTube channel. Here's the link for corn:

    about 3 -4 in an hour. I have a new way of doing the leaves that is way faster. Let me do a quick video on that- I will shoot and post it Sunday.

    Thanks Allen I am doing a small 1500sf haunt just for the younger kids and will be donating all the proceeds to children charity. Stuart Smith and his wife have done a back story and a set for me and I have an idea of doing a huge endless hallway ( wall) effect in 3D to appear like a large corn field. So I figure the wall will be 20' wide by 8' tall so I will need a lot of them. The main charity is for autism and our parks and rec. as part of there involvement I was going to set them to work making corn stalks. This haunt will be run during daylight hours so that the younger kids can enjoy a low scare haunt before bed time and make it be less of an interfearance with the operation of my other haunts. This is my way of paying back the comunity for our great city programs and doing a little ass kissing with the city by providing good comunity out reach. I am also evolving our fire and police force by having them run our beer tent and splitting the profits with them, go figure free labor and security in one.

    Lets see...26 acres @ 34,600 per acre =899,600 stalks. Working on them 12 hours a day is 48 a day. That means 18,741 days....=51 years with no breaks. Guess I better get busy.

    Heck with it....I'll do the old fashioned planting seed. This is one of Allen's cool tricks I'll pass on.
