A while back we point out in our “Delicious Rumors” Blog Post and (Kind of) in our “Could this be the Icon for HHN27?” Blog Post we pointed out that there is a possibility for a Scarecrow Maze coming to HHN27. So let’s dive into where these clues came from and how these rumors are being spread to see whether this gives us any indication on one of the unnamed original houses…
(Note: Whenever “The Ifrit” likes a Tweet about his speculation it usually means that person is right)
Not only that but a while back we were sent this Photo…
Which actually looks very Scarecrow-ish.
As well as that there is this photo that was used on a Blog Post titled “All Ticket and Vacation Packages On Sale Now For Halloween Horror Nights 2017” on the Universal Orlando Official Blog Posts Website.
Not only that but on the Regular HHN Orlando Website there is this Photo for the Event Tickets link!
Which all of these Photos are hinting at the Possibility of a Scarecrow Maze which begs the question…
“What is the Scarecrow Maze?”
What our Sources are telling us is that this is a Maze based off a ScareZone from HHN14 titled… Field of Screams.
The ScareZone’s Plot was…
“Stay off the path that is twisted and worn. Where stalks all grow tattered and torn. For all those who do, stay lost and forlorn. Singing forever the Rhyme of the Corn.”
In real life, the maze was grown from scratch using real corn but a freak accident caused the whole maze to be destroyed! You can read more behind the scenes stories about that here.
Which whenever a Maze or ScareZone comes back as a Maze they like to put a twist on it. In which as stated above the Maze is rumored to be taking place during…
The Dust Bowl
Which was a time during the 1930s where it was period of severe dust storms that greatly damaged the agriculture and was a very bad drought. It prevented farmers from planting their crops to farm which sounds absolutely perfect for this Maze to take place in!
Here’s the scoop:
The Dust Bowl, also known as the Dirty Thirties, was a period of severe dust storms that greatly damaged the ecology and agriculture of the American and Canadian prairies during the 1930s; severe drought and a failure to apply dryland farming methods to prevent wind erosion (the Aeolian processes) caused the phenomenon. The drought came in three waves, 1934, 1936, and 1939–1940, but some regions of the high plains experienced drought conditions for as many as eight years. With insufficient understanding of the ecology of the plains, farmers had conducted extensive deep plowing of the virgin topsoil of the Great Plains during the previous decade; this had displaced the native, deep-rooted grasses that normally trapped soil and moisture even during periods of drought and high winds.
And here is an older video of the Scare Zone from HHN14
But here’s to a Reimagination of the ScareZone known as the Field of Screams!
What do you think of a Field of Screams Maze? Do you think it will come to HHN27? Did you attend the Scare Zone in 14 and if so what did you think of it? Tell us in the Comments! Let us know your thoughts…
