Haunted House In Atlanta Will Be The Only Spooky Drive-Thru Experience In The State

The Halloween season is brewing up some spooky happenings in Georgia this year, and with October creeping around the corner, it's time to start prepping for all the thrills and chills. Haunted houses will soon be popping up all around the state, but there's a new way to feed your fever dreams on the horizon. This all-new haunted house in Atlanta is a drive-thru experience offering a creative twist on the classic scare-fests full of mask-wearing monsters lurking in the shadows.

Beginning on October 16 through Halloween, you can pull-up to the abandoned North Dekalb Mall lot for the jump scares of your dreams (or should we say nightmares?) at the only drive-thru haunted house in Georgia!

What can thrill-seekers expect?

With immersive Halloween stations throughout your ride, this spooky experience ought to make Jason Voorhees' antics seem like child's play. Live actors make up the dream "scream" team, creating a hyper-realistic adventure for all the brave souls out there.

"We have been working with top production companies for all of our installations," Cassie Pope, Marketing Manager for The Haunted Highway, tells Narcity. "Upon guest arrival, they will be directed by traffic attendants to pull into the scenes where they will then put the car in park and turn off the lights," she continues.

The 30 to 40-minute interactive themed scenes, including Candy Land, Dead Man's Shed, and the Skeleton House, are completely contactless. You and your friends will stay in your car with the windows up in total darkness for maximum terror.

If you're sensitive to the scaries, you can skip the PG-13 version and opt for the kid-friendly or daytime options.

What else is included?

The fun doesn't stop at horrors and haunts — there is much more to see beyond the fright-filled roadside, including a drive-thru pumpkin patch for your viewing and picking pleasure.

Visitors will also have several opportunities to document their experiences with Instagram-friendly photo environments and Halloween decor.

You can even tend to your sweet tooth with engineered candy tunnels that will deliver treats right into your car for a socially-distanced trick-or-treating frenzy.

How much does it cost and how do I buy tickets?

Tickets cost $70 per car with a maximum of six occupants per vehicle. At max capacity, you and your group will only spend roughly $11.66 each.

Your ticket includes an "I Survived The Haunted Highway" photo opportunity and a Haunted Highway swag bag filled with Halloween goodies.

As expressed on the ticket page, "There is no turning back on the Haunted Highway...blood, guts, and gore await in a nightmare fueled journey through terrifying hellscapes."

Tickets can be purchased online.
