A haunted attraction in Burlington County is taking the Halloween spirit on the road.
“We kind of try to make it a tradition that people would come year after year and experience not just the haunt, but Halloween,” says Bloodshed Farms co-owner Clark Bish. “We branded it as FearFest…It wasn’t just like a haunted attraction, it was like a haunted party.”
But because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event in Springfield had to be different.
“We took everything we did before and put it into a drive-thru,” Bish says. “You’re driving on our hayride course. It’s a gravel road that you drive your car through. And you end up hitting dozens of scenes to go through with actors.”
Bish says that it is a good way to celebrate all the spooky aspects of Halloween while being socially distant.
“Everything is contactless. When you get your tickets, it’s all online…You never roll down your windows, you go right through,” Bish says.
And Bish says that this type of attraction is something that all families could do during these troubling times.
“I didn’t think Halloween would happen this year, so I thought we would be saving Halloween and giving the kids somewhere to go, something to do,” he says.
For extra scares, customers can upgrade their ticket to the “Blood Bath Experience,” which allows actors to touch their cars. The attraction runs every Friday and Saturday through October.
