Orlando getting drive-thru Halloween event this fall

-

In the wake of Universal Studios’ announcement that it would be canceling this fall’s Halloween Horror Nights, comes the welcome news that Orlando will be getting a drive-thru Halloween event that’s all about physical distancing.

The Haunted Road (Facebook | Website) will be an immersive, contactless, drive-thru experience featuring a mixture of theatrical storytelling, scary creatures, and a series of tableaus that you can see from the comfort of your locked car. The story is based on the “… untold story of Rapunzel, as she journeys into a world of disarray, faces bloodcurdling creatures, and hundreds of shocking scares.”

The event is being led by Jessica Mariko, creator of the now-defunct vampire bar/immersive theatrical dance/rock show DRIP on International Drive; Nick Graves, a writer/producer/director who has worked with Walt Disney Entertainment for over 23 years; and Jeremy Crawford, a creative director and former art director for Universal Orlando.

A family-friendly matinee version of the event will be available during the daytime and on select weekends, with dates announced soon. Admission is expected to start at $15 per person. The location of the event has not been made public yet.

The Haunted Road will be hosting virtual auditions for its cast from August 13-16 with more information available HERE.

Event organizers will be launching a Kickstarter campaign soon to help with early costs. Campaign supporters will be able to choose a variety of perks including advanced admission tickets, virtual tours for out-of-town doors, and more.
