COVID19 – What is your response?

Due to guest proximity concerns with a hayride, we have converted our hayride to a drive thru.  You will be in your vehicle at all times.  Please continue to do your part in making sure all attendees are in good health.  NOTE: Our neighbor Scream Town is open and has taken incredible steps to make their event very safe.  We highly recommend them as well.

IS The Abandoned Drive Thru HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE?

Due to the nature of our event (cornfield, farm land, woods, etc) The Abandoned Drive Thru is NOT handicap accessible.

WHY DOES The Abandoned Drive Thru HAVE THE #1 ATMOSPHERE OF ANY TWIN CITIES HAUNTED ATTRACTION?

One of the greatest aspects of The Abandoned Drive Thru is that we have a permanent location. The Abandoned Drive Thru is secluded just outside the lights of the city in a remote corn field surrounded by an incredible 200 year old FOREST. These trees are not your ordinary trees! They actually look like they are reaching out to grab you. One look at them will send shivers down your spine. This Forest is thick and dense with places guests could easily get lost. There are no sounds from a major highway, and no lights from the city. If it is one compliment we get, it is “This atmosphere is amazing”.

IS The Abandoned Drive Thru REALLY SCARY?

The Abandoned Drive Thru is family friendly yet still EXTREMELY Scary. The Abandoned Drive Thru conducts a hard target search all over the Twin Cities for actors that are Halloween nuts. We bring in actors of all types with varying skills. Our actors don’t consider this a job. Most would come without being paid, even though they are. They come every night because they love scaring the heck out of our guests.

It should also be noted that while The Abandoned Drive Thru is only RECOMMENDED for ages 10 and older, we are still a terrific family event. We are family friendly, we try our best not to sell tickets to anyone who may be intoxicated, we have police on site, and the park is clean.

WILL THIS REALLY BE WORTH THE VISIT?

At The Abandoned Drive Thru, the owner, the actors, the technicians, the ticket booth, and even the police, want you to have an incredible experience. If you leave for any reason unhappy, we are not happy. We have a passion for what we do. Our staff is itching over the winter to get back to work building, coming up with new ideas, and making sure you have a blast. We go to conventions, work shops, and specialty stores to come up with new and exciting ways to scare and entertain you. We don’t want you to visit us just once, we want you, your family and friends, to make The Abandoned Drive Thru a tradition for years to come.
