Recently, we shared the sad news that Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights is being cancelled this year. Add that to the enormous amount of films currently being cancelled, and it seems like this season might be one consistent bummer. There is a bit of hope coming out of Orlando, Florida this week though. Looks like haunted drive-thru’s might be coming to save the spooky day.
The Haunted Road is a contactless haunted experience that allows, you to enjoy the spookiness of Halloween while practicing social distancing from withing your vehicle.
“The entire event was designed with physical distancing measures in mind, from contact-free check-in by license plate, to immersive drive-in scenes,” the press release describes.
Japan announced earlier this year that they would have a haunted drive-in garage experience. Their experience would have the haunt play out around your vehicle. It seems that The Haunted Road is taking from that experience and expanding it a bit.
Attendees of the drive-thru haunt will experience a “ghastly rendition of an untold story of Rapunzel as she journeys into a world of disarray, faces bloodcurdling creatures – and hundreds of shocking scares.”
The whole thing sounds pretty cool to me. I’m just hoping that the idea catches on a bit more in other states. I’m sure those of us like myself out side of Florida would also dig the experience.
What do you guys think of the idea of a drive-thru haunt? Let us know in the comments section.
