Incredible Corn Maze closes for season

The North Idaho Halloween attraction where a young man portraying a zombie was killed earlier this month has closed for the season. The Incredible Corn Maze in Hauser posted the notice on its Facebook and Web pages Monday night. No explanation was given for the early closure. The season was to run Sept. 26 through Nov. 1, this Saturday. The final free drive-in movie in a “Spooktacular” series from FunFlicks Outdoor Movies of the Inland Northwest was to be Saturday night at the corn maze. That show has been canceled. Jeremy T. McSpadden Jr., 18, died Oct. 10 when he was run over by a converted school bus that was part of the “Zombie Slayer Bus” attraction. McSpadden, who was working at the site, ran up to the bus, tripped and fell under the rear wheel, witnesses told investigators. The business reopened a week later while the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration launched an investigation of the accident. That investigation is continuing.
