I've mentioned that a couple of haunted trails in Maryland ARE open for business this Halloween, with safety protocols in place (see my earlier blog). Well, in Northern Virginia, you can experience the new drive-thru haunted terror called "Nightmare Alley". It's in Lorton, the creation of Workhouse Arts. You drive down a paved path, stopping at 13 designated spots. And at each spooky location, actors and characters will pop out and try their best to make you scream!
This is from their website..."Our Haunt 2020, “Nightmare Alley,” is Northern Virginia’s first-ever Haunted Drive-Thru! A haunted attraction is, itself, a long-standing tradition offered by the Workhouse, which serves not only as entertainment, but also as an extension of the Workhouse Performing Arts program, allowing local youth to practice their set production and theatrical skills.
“Nightmare Alley” is the first immersive, completely contactless drive-thru Halloween experience in the region. Zombies, swamp creatures, creepy clowns and scary dolls are among 13 different scary scenes taking up residence at the Workhouse campus during the month of October. These new inhabitants will scare and entertain visitors experiencing the attraction from the safety of their cars. And our campus provides a unique and extra eerie setting for this Halloween attraction."
What a genius idea!!!
