Nestled in New Jersey farm country, not too far away from the Pennsylvanian border, lies a farm called Horse Sleigh Farm. By day this quaint farm stand and acreage welcomes families in to pick pumpkins and enjoy a hayride for the afternoon. By night, however, the story changes and one finds themselves surrounded by zombies and spooky creatures as they brave the haunted attractions at this country establishment.
Horse Sleigh Farm boasts an incredible corn maze, this year shaped as The Maze Runner. Carefully carved out of corn stalks, this very detailed maze is a challenge to get through. By day, you can enter and find checkpoints and activities to solve to help find your way out of the maze. By night, the test becomes finding your way out of the 8 acre labyrinth by the light of the moonlight, all the while not knowing if the undead will find you in the maze!
My family and I were invited* to come check out the haunted attractions at Horse Sleigh Farm this past weekend and we were thrilled to do so. Halloween is one of our favorite holidays, so for the entire month leading up to it, we like to experience something Halloween related, and this was right up our alley.
Patrons can choose to bring a flashlight with them as they enter the maze, but it’s more fun if you leave your light behind. Armed with a map, we tunneled our way through the corn stalks and never knew if we were being watched or followed. Eery wind rustled the corn stalks and made you wonder if ghosts were in our midst.
We spent about an hour (it went by very quickly) navigating our way through the fields until we were able to find the farm stand lights. We had a blast as a family doing this activity. It was very fun and not too scary for the little ones, just the perfect combination of challenge and surprise.
Before we entered the maze, we enjoyed a haunted hayride that took us around the perimeter of the corn maze. Here we were spooked (again nothing overly gruesome) and our kids loved it! The location of the farm adds just the perfect scare factor to the experience!
This was a terrific way to spend the evening as a family and many teenage groups and families were also there enjoying the fun. When done with the attractions, you can stop by the farm market to pick up delicious snacks like fruit pies and the best whoopee pies my kids have ever had. We picked up some staples like apple and pumpkin butter (delicious!) and the sweetest red raspberry jam I’ve ever tasted.
We will be making Horse Sleigh Farms a yearly tradition and will definitely be stopping back for their fall treats again in the future. You can learn more about Horse Sleigh Farm by visiting their site.

We do a corn maze every year with the kids, but never at night. I would be scared of all the nocturnal animals around here at night.
That looks so creepy! I love mazes that actually have a little mystery feel to them.
Wow! So much fun. We went through a corn maze a couple of years ago in the day time. I knew how to get out at all time, because I paid attention to where the sun was from the exit.
That is totally awesome. I wish we had something like that around here. That would be so much fun!
What a great place for Halloween time. I love those corn mazes!
I absolutely LOVE corn mazes. It always amazes me that they can lay them out so precisely. That picture you took in the corn field is very spooky, by the way.
That looks so cool! I would absolutely love to do that maze…in the day time! I get scared too easily to do that at night!
I think i was near this today.. or something very similar.. i was right there near the PA border and there was signs for a stalk maze.. its too scary for me to go into..
Haunted corn mazes are so much fun! I would definitely go if I lived a little closer.
That aerial view is amazing and must have taken forever to do. That is crazy mad skill.
I want to visit a corn maze this Fall. I think I’ll stick with the daytime so the zombies won’t get me. lol
I always thought these mazes were really cool. I do not believe we have anything like that near where I live.
I’ve always wanted to try a giant hedge or corn maze. I have yet to find one even remotely near me.
I would freak out at night, but I’d be good for it during the day. The ones “near” us are all at least 1 hour away, unfortunately.
Okay please correct me if I were wrong. This Corn maze have been featured on many scary movies???? HAHAHAHa
This looks like so much fun! I never got to do these as a child but have loved visiting orchards and completing the mazes in the past couple years!
I love mazes in the DAY TIME. I would scared to death to run through one at night!
We do mazes every year but never like this! I would die doing a maze at night!!!
I would love to do a maze. The aerial view looked gorgeous.
I want to go. I don’t like haunted anything but this looks very cool to do. I am thinking about taking a trip.
This seriously scares the crap out of me! I’ve done stuff like this during the day but not at night! So fun, but so scary!
I love corn mazes. I’ve never been to a spooky one though.
We can travel there, it kind of near. But based on my experience, I wouldn’t dare go in. I could spend the whole day just wandering and still wouldn’t find the end. LOL! There’s should be a bridge somewhere so they can tip us where to go. ROFL!
I have never done a corn maze before and would love to do so. This one looks like so much fun. Thanks for sharing.
We have an annual corm maze run we go to each year…and it’s NOTHING like this! This would be sooooo cool!
I wish we had a corn maze nearby. They are so cool and scary!
Love the aerial view. I wish we had something like this near me, what a great way to have fun with the family or even your friend!
My family loves corn mazes, but we’ve never done one a night. If only we lived close enough to do this one!
This is such a great family activity! I’ve always thought those corn mazes were tons of fun to solve.
Someone has too much time on their hands.. lol I couldn’t do those at night time, it’s just too creepy for many reasons, I’m not sure I could do it in day light, unless I had someone with me, in case I got lost, haha
Ayay! What a pretty huge maze here! 🙂 I bet i’ll have fun going through this! 🙂
Wow, I would love to visit there!! I’m a big Maze Runner fan, so I think this would be so much fun!
