Halloween In July! World's First Drive Thru Haunted House Is Open

Japan has announced the world's first horror drive-through experienced as a responsible way of providing horror enthusiasts with some summer fun during the Covid-19 pandemic. Haunted house design company Kowagarasetai, has created what it calls the world's first haunted house drive-through experience.

The horror-inducing event is meant to be experienced from inside a vehicle, with the windows up, in order to minimize the risk of infection of the coronavirus. Participants can bring their own cars and pay the admission price of $75, or, if they don't have one, they can pay extra and use a four-seat car provided by the company. All company cars are properly disinfected after each session.

The unique haunted house experience will take place in a haunted garage in Tokyo's Azabu district. Each haunted drive-through session is expected to last about 20 minutes and participants can expect to see zombies, ghosts, and other types of undead.
