Toronto is getting a zombie drive-thru just in time for Halloween

A new haunted experience is taking over Toronto just in time for Halloween.

Beginning on October 21, the Haunted Drive Thru Experience at Square One invites guests to journey through a series of spooky setups that allow you to witness “a living nightmare from the safety of your vehicle.”

Featuring creepy clowns and horrifying zombies, visitors can choose whether they want a contactless or immersive experience, says the event page. The latter ups the fear factor by allowing performers to physically interact with your car by knocking on windows and the like.

Taking place at Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga, guests stay in their own vehicles throughout the course, regardless of which contact level they choose, to limit the spread of coronavirus.

“We are working with the City of Peel and following all Health and Safety protocols to ensure that all precautions are taken to protect guests and our performers,” says the event listing.

Presented by Jestr Events, the course has six stops, each inspired by classic scary movies and Halloween thrillers. Guests park at predesignated areas and watch the horror before them come to life, before moving on to the next nightmare-inducing scene on the 20-minute course, says the event page.

“Remember under all circumstances, don’t let them in,” warns the listing.

Family-friendly shows are presented before 6:00 pm each day. The terror begins at nightfall when the monsters appear. The after-dark shows are not recommended for those under the age of 13.
