Like everything else this year, Halloween will look quite a bit different. No, Halloween is not cancelled, ya’ spooky bitches. It’s a lifestyle. A frame of mind. A way of existing in the world. And for those of you who embrace that spirit in October alone, you can still embrace it for 31 days in 2020. Haunts as we have come to know them, however, are most definitely cancelled. BUT there are some new reimagined haunt experiences happening and I will compile a list here. This is all new so at this point I obviously cannot vouch for the safety or the awesomeness of the haunts listed below. But take this information, check out each haunt’s specific safety precautions, grab your masks and maybe go get the hell scared outta you in your car. Everyone is hungry for haunts and they are in limited supply, so I’d advise you to jump on tickets quickly if you find something you like because this year more than any other, demand far outweighs supply.
