The Ultimate Harry Potter Fan Maze

potter mazeHarry Potter mania in the UK is threatened only by the great phone hacking scandal. Check out the maze created by a farmer in the north of England, via the Yorkshire Post:

A Yorkshire farmer has created the world’s largest spot the difference competition as a tribute to Harry Potter.

Tom Pearcy has carefully cut out two portraits of the boy wizard in his crop of maize plants at his field near York. With some subtle differences between the two images it creates the world’s largest spot the difference competition. At over 50m in diameter each head is also believed to be the largest image of Daniel Radcliffe ever created.

The images have been painstakingly carved out of over one million living maize plants. The 10km of pathways form an intricate maze for visitors to explore. The York Maze is the largest maize maze in Europe and one of the largest in the world.

Mr Pearcy said: “I’m a big fan of Harry Potter and the release of the final film this summer marks the end of an era. I wanted to do something imaginative to say farewell to Harry, so creating the biggest image of him ever made and making it a spot the difference competition seemed like an interesting way to do that.”…

    “largest image of Daniel Radcliffe ever created” lol I would have to agree with it being the end of an era.  The HP series really has raised the bar for the fantasy genre.  Even if all my faith in Hollywood has been lost, at least I know they will have to try and top this at some point.

      Really? You haven’t noticed that all adults are children playing “adult” roles? 

      I never grew up, I just got a better vocabulary and a bigger cock (sorta). lol

        I am probably just being petulant because people these think harry potter is part of the occult, drives me fucking nuts

          There are a few vague occult truisms in there somewhere. Although I can’t think of any right now….

          Still, the movies were fun in my opinion. I never read the books.

    Prof. Snape is a buzzkill though, I hope he doesn’t show up.
