With Universal and Disney canceling their Halloween events, an Orlando start-up is driving ahead with a new Halloween event for this fall.
A group of Orlando-area themed entertainment veterans is planning a drive-through haunt experience for this Halloween season. "The Haunted Road" will allow visitors to stay in their vehicle as they drive through "an untold story of Rapunzel as she journeys into a world of disarray, faces bloodcurdling creatures – and hundreds of shocking scares," according to the group's press release.
"With the arts and entertainment industry at a standstill, and an increasing need to find new, safe outdoor entertainment, we knew it was the perfect time to develop a unique Halloween experience so everyone can enjoy a dose of horror this upcoming Halloween season, from the comfort of their car," executive producer and creative principal Jessica Mariko said.
Mariko - who created DRIP, an immersive theatrical dance show on I-Drive - is working with a creative team that includes former Universal Orlando art director Jeremy Crawford and Walt Disney Entertainment veteran Nick Graves. In addition to the night-time haunt, the team is planning a family-friendly daytime version for select weekends.
Online auditions start August 13, with applications now open on the event's website. Dates and location will be announced but admission is planned to be $15 per vehicle, with contactless check-in using your license plate number.Tweet
