Last Halloween, when pandemic restrictions were in full swing, in-person haunted houses weren’t an option—but nevertheless, hardcore horror fans insisted on getting spooked. Enter drive-through haunted houses, a COVID-safe option for experiencing real-time frights without getting too close to other people.
If you’re looking to get spooked from within the safety of your car this fall, look no further. Here are five drive-through haunted houses, mostly in Florida, that are sure to satisfy any horror-lover’s most gruesome desires this Halloween.
This Halloween, you can get spooked without even leaving your car.
Drive-through Halloween attraction #1: The Haunted Road
This Florida-based haunted road is all about the driving experience. According to the event website, “One of the last remaining haunted roads in Central Florida is now a seasonal drive-thru experience.”
The website goes on: “After launching in 2020, the cast and crew quickly realized everything was not as it seemed. Rumor spread that tortured souls who died on the land materialize when the sun sets, resulting in paranormal phenomena and eerie occurrences.”
“Through trial and error, we learned how to disrupt these spirits and conjure up on-demand ghost sightings for travelers to witness. But proceed at your own risk…it is unclear if the spirits remain to ward off future victims or lure unsuspecting travelers to join them.”
Tickets vary from between around $16–$30, depending on which day of the week you’re going. You can easily buy tickets on The Haunted Road’s website.
Drive-through Halloween attraction #2: The Horrorland
The Horrorland is a Florida-based haunted attraction that was created during the pandemic. For the second year, visitors can drive through a series of eight haunted houses, located in Miami-Dade County.
According to the Miami Herald, Francisco Santos, CEO and director of Live305 Entertainment, said in a statement, “The beauty of this immersive experience is that participants are protagonists in a horror movie that’s happening around them in real-time—and it’s all done from the safety of their cars.”
In total, visitors should expect the experience to last around half an hour and are encouraged to not bring any children under 10 years of age. Some of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Aventura Police Foundation. You can buy your tickets here.
Drive-through Halloween attraction #3: Haunted Drive
Open every Friday and Saturday until Halloween, as well as the Sunday before and on Halloween, the Haunted Drive in Cleveland, Texas is back this October and advertises itself as “the deadliest drive you’ll ever take.”
Tickets cost $35 per vehicle or $15 per person, with extras such as a haunted maze for $15. Admission to the kids haunted house is $10. Visitors should note that this haunted attraction doesn’t allow trailers, ATVs, or motorcycles, and prohibits visitors from leaving their vehicle throughout the event.
The venue boasts both live actors and animatronics, and the drive features a variety of themed areas. In total, the experience is “1.5 miles of terror and screams,” according to the event website, where you can also buy tickets.
Drive-through Halloween attraction #4: Granville Haunt Farm
This drive-through haunted attraction based in Granville County, North Carolina combines a drive-through haunted house with a drive-through movie theatre for the ultimate Halloween experience.
According to the event website, visitors can “drive through our giant movie screen and watch the movies come to life on the other side,” as well as “drive along a path of new thrills and chills.”
Another plus is that this year, you don’t need to worry about long lines or traffic, since the event now has timed-entry ticketing. Prices are by number of passengers: a vehicle with one passenger must pay $10; two passengers, $20; three to four passengers, $25; and five or more passengers must pay an additional $5 per passenger.
You can visit every Friday and Saturday in October, plus Halloween day, and can buy your tickets here.
Drive-through Halloween attraction #5: Scream n’ Stream
This Florida-based drive-through Haunted attraction is back this fall for another year of socially-distanced spooking. From Sept. 18 to Oct. 31, you can visit Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures to visit Scream n’ Stream, a haunted attraction that launched last year after Florida canceled all in-person Halloween attractions.
Scream n’ Stream was created by Patrick Braillard, the architect of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando. A portion of event proceeds will go toward the Second Harvest Food Bank.
According to Attractions Magazine, Josh Gunderson, the Scream n’ Stream event coordinator, said, “Last year, we were looking to bring jobs and entertainment to the people of Central Florida who were hurting when many major attractions were forced to shut down due to COVID-19.” He added, “We wanted to bring some safe, scary fun to the horror lovers out there.”
“This year we are looking to raise the bar and show people that we’re more than just a one-time thing,” said Gunderson. That being said, be sure to get your tickets early—last year the event was entirely sold out, and you don’t want to miss it. You can buy your tickets here.
