Replay Lincoln Park, the Chicago arcade bar behind the drive-thru spooks at Alley of Darkness, is back with another positively terrifying haunted house experience beginning October 15. Situated near the expressway on the Near West Side, Highway of Horror transforms an abandoned parking lot into a 360-degree, 90-minute scare fest.
Similar to the experience at the Alley of Darkness, guests will first be treated to a spooky drive-in movie. But then, Highway of Horror kicks things up a notch: Once an appropriately eerie mood has been set, you'll be confined to your car for a full hour and a half of scares from zombies, demons and other ghoulish fiends prowling the premises, ready to shake your car and spray fake blood against the windows. No car? Book a private geodesic dome instead, which has room for up to eight people (and, as a bonus, is BYOB—for obvious reasons, don't bring booze if you go with the car option). To help folks recover from the fright, the Broken English Taco truck will be on hand to serve restorative portions of tacos, popcorn, hot chocolate, cider and more.
Highway of Horror runs Thursday through Sunday from 6 to 10pm until November 1. To book tickets for your car ($75 per vehicle) or a private geodesic dome ($100), head to the website.
