The Kings Dominion amusement park has decided to drop the “Miner’s Revenge” maze from its “Halloween Haunt” lineup after an outcry that it was insensitive to coal miners.

According to NPR, Kings Dominion decided to discontinue the maze, which featured garish representations of injured coal miners “as part of its regular rotation,” according to company spokesman Gene Petriello.

I am GLAD they did drop the Maze. I think that it did open a insensitive subject for are region of the Country. I lost my brother in the Sago Mine disaster. I would have not returned to the park if they would have continued with the Maze. Thank you Kings Dominion and Thank you WDTV for airing this story.

Thank you. John Groves
