When COVID hit it made us re-imagine how we live our lives in some ways. That is also the case as we creep closer and closer toward Halloween and Haunt season. Leaving many to wonder how haunts will open and when they do what pre-cautions will be in place to keep everyone including actors safe. As this question is being asked the rise of drive-thru haunt experiences are on the rise. Whether it be a haunted hayride or staying in your own car, we should see more of both options this season.
