The Most Spooktacular Halloween Houses in New Jersey

Do you have that one house in your neighborhood that goes all out decorating for Halloween?

Do you have that one house in your neighborhood that goes all out decorating for Halloween? We asked on Facebook for the best Halloween houses, and these are your picks:

The Halloween House
2 Alcott Way, Succasunna

A staple for the past 28 years, this season’s theme is  Jurassic Park meets Pirates of the Caribbean (there’s an actual ship!). The family-friendly locale avoids jump-out scary stuff and offers a Disney display. Its pirate ship has working cannons. You can drive by anytime, but head there on Halloween from 5-11 pm to walk through the full experience.

Martorana Christmas House

396 Fairfield Rd., Wayne

This house celebrates Halloween way before good tidings. Check out the more than 165 inflatable decorations (8 am-midnight) and lights (4 pm-midnight) and stop by on Halloween for candy sacks, novelty items, cotton candy and popcorn.

Ridgewood Halloween Maze

124 Sheridan Terr. Ridgewood

All ages are welcome at this maze that adds new animatronics each year. For a scare-free adventure, come during the day. As it gets dark, look out for creatures lurking in the night. Warning: Getting out is a lot harder than you think. Open October 8-31 from 4-9 pm every weekday and noon-9 pm on weekends.

13 Skeletons

948 Rte. 202-206 Bridgewater

Celebrate this lucky 13th anniversary all month long with an ever-changing display that tells a story. This year, three skeletons have gone missing in an old haunted mine. Search parties can hunt for them on Oct. 27-28 from 6:30-10 pm, but beware of what hides in the shadows. Begins October 1 and ends on Halloween.

**Note: These houses have gone all out in previous years, but have not been confirmed for the 2018 Halloween season.

Bordentown: Frank Rios and Pat Patrizio lead the charge on Thompson St. each Halloween, making sure the entire block goes completely over-the-top with spooky decor!

Lambertville: This town knows a thing or two about getting in the Halloween spirit! Just ask the filmmakers of Halloweenville, a documentary inspired by Lambertville’s spooky seasonal transformation. Check out North Union St. and Buttonwood St. for some of the most creative decorations.

Madison: There is a well-decorated house on Ridgedale Ave. between Park Ave. and Madison High School, plus the Dead & Breakfast Inn at 100 Ridgedale Ave.

Mantua: Trick-or-treaters, beware! If you come to 203 W. Salem Ave. for some sweet treats, you’ve got to walk through this home’s frightening “graveyard” first.

Roselle: Halloween on Bender Ave. gets better and better every year thanks to one home’s super scary Halloween display that's gained much popularity over the years!
