About the Stewart Family Haunted Backyard Maze
In the spirit of Halloween, SPACEStv toured The World’s Only Life-Size “Loops and Traps” Halloween Maze located in the Stewart family’s backyard in Ridgewood, NJ. The maze – which takes up the Stewart’s entire backyard – has become an annual family tradition for the past 18 years attracting over 1000 people every Halloween season.
In this video above, viewers get an insider’s look into how this 1,500-sq-ft maze is constructed and how the Stewarts are able to scare the pants off the children of New York and New Jersey every season! WARNING the video features this year’s maze with a zombie clown, snakes hanging from the ceiling, and real hands popping out of nowhere. It can take the average person up to 50 minutes to find their way out!
The Haunted Backyard Maze is open every day until Halloween. The hours vary but you can find them here. The address is 124 Sheridan Terrace. They do not open in the rain.
