Drive-Thru Halloween? How the Parking Industry is Helping Haunted Houses
COVID-19 has made traditional haunted house experiences unique for 2020.
Halloween is the second-largest commercial holiday in the United States thanks in part to haunted houses. According to American Haunts, the haunted attraction industry generates between 300 and 500 million dollars in ticket sales annually. Unfortunately, the up-close experience of packing hundreds of people into haunted attractions isn't the safest idea during a pandemic.
Luckily, the industry is adapting and parking lots and venues are coming to the rescue. Drive-in and drive-thru experiences are helping to keep these scary attractions alive. Our Halloween Spooktacular episode of the PLP does a deep dive into some of these experiences. Highlights can be found here:
