The majority of people thought the coronavirus pandemic will be last less than some weeks, but in reality is still going strong and everything keeps being postponed. We are getting closer to hit Autumn and to celebrate Halloween seems not possible this year, unless…
Unless there is an alternative to look forward, like drive-thru haunted houses. They are pretty much a thing and are all popping up all over for you to still have fun this year.
It basically involves taking a haunted house concept while adding cars. It’s something that has existed for a while now but it’s surging in popularity by the times we are facing and it’s a good option for those who still want to keep Halloween traditions and get some scares while maintaining proper social distance too.
The new trend is making its way to many parts of the country. Here’s a list of 5 drive-thru haunted houses you may want to visit.
Stranger Things Drive Into
In LA, a Stranger Things drive-thru haunted house is already selling tickets to live a chilling experience as a Hawkins’ resident. You’ll hop into your car and drive to the Starcourt Mall to unlock the untold story of the series and immerse yourself in the thrilling world of Stranger Things.
