A Shrewsbury tradition! Visit the Haunted Hillando Halloween Maze 2019!
Community spirit for Halloween is strong in Shrewsbury! For the past several years, the McNamara family has been building and hosting a kid-friendly Halloween maze in their yard for the residents of Shrewsbury and surrounding communities.
The maze is fairly challenging, but most guests can make it through in 5-15 minutes. The maze has several different areas waiting to be discovered including:
- witch hut
- skeleton graveyard
- spider’s lair
- pet cemetery
- scarecrow/jack o’lantern area
- haunted graveyard!
Great for all ages!
Decorations are all reasonably appropriate for all ages; nothing jumps at you (though there are some animated props this year) and there is no blood, gore, weapons, or implied violence. The maze is well-lit, and filled with ghosts, skeletons, witches, spiders, scarecrows, and jack o’ lanterns just hanging out and looking creepy. The McNamaras’ goal in creating this walkthrough was to help folks make Halloween memories together, not create nightmares for the kids!
Parental supervision and considerate use of the maze are requested and expected. Visitors may touch the ghosts and skeletons gently, and should feel free to pose for photos with the ghouls, but please refrain from moving props; most of the decorations are wired in place, and the McNamaras want to be sure that everyone has a safe, happy visit.
It’s for a good cause!
There is no admission charge for the maze, but voluntary donations for Shrewsbury Youth & Family Services, Inc. (SYFS) will be accepted this year, and there will be a concession area with seasonal snacks and warm apple cider for sale.
