We’re finally at one of my favorite times of the year. Of course, my beloved city, would never disappoint with the COVID substitute Halloween events of the year. Be prepared to lock your car doors and buckle up for a hell of a ride.
In the city of Chicago, there will be a spooky drive-thru haunted house in Replay Lincoln Park that’s available all throughout the month of October. This Chicago arcade bar is transforming its alley into a haunted ghost town for those that crave the thrill of what lurks in the shadows. Do yourself a favor and pull up to 2833 N. Sheffield Avenue to get the scare of your life.
According to timeout.com, “When guests arrive at Alley of Darkness, they’re treated to a short drive-in movie to set the scene and boost the scare factor. Then they are asked to put the car in park for 30 minutes, while a cast of spooky characters lets loose and terrorizes them.” The goal of this drive thru haunted house is to give you the same 360 experience that you would’ve regularly experienced on foot while making your way out of a spooky setting.
The experience will guarantee their “victims” a realm of fake blood, high pitched and eerie sound effects, and authentic props. And, of course, you will not be able to exit your vehicles at any time throughout the event. So, make sure you’re prepared for whatever they throw your way.
There is a reservation requirement and tickets are $75 a car. If you don’t have your own vehicle and would like to rent for the event, Replay will have several vehicles that are sanitized and available for parties. Although, this will cost an extra $25 for a convenience fee. The spooky drive-in will be open between 5 pm – 11 pm. Visit this website for more deets.
