Count Me In: A Drive-Through Haunted House Style Experience In Japan

These are a couple videos from the Kowagarasetai drive-through haunted house experience in Minato, Tokyo, Japan, a concept that was created so people can still get their fright on while helping prevent the spread of COVID-19. Some more info about the experience while I scare myself sufficiently just checking my bank account balance:

according to their website, “A large number of dead people attack your car. Can you beat the fear coming at you from all directions?”. Visitors to the unique haunt drive in to a warehouse and honk three times to start the show. While ghouls and zombies attack the car, showering it with fake blood (by request), sound effects and the haunt’s storyline (“This is a garage where a horrible incident occurred long ago…”) plays through the car radio.
The website proudly proclaims that the staff will “disinfect your car” and wash off the fake blood after the performance, but then in slightly smaller print below (“blood cannot be completely wiped off”).

Each car costs 8,000 yen (~$75), with the optional blood splatter package adding another 1,000 yen (~$9.50). A pretty fun idea, but what happens when a driver panics and starts their vehicle and stomps on the gas, turning this into a real horror experience? Because here in the U.S. there’s no way that wouldn’t happen. If I close my eyes I can already see the headlines and the rest of the world pointing and laughing at us.

Keep going for two videos, the second of which is a ten minute video of two dudes experiencing the experience.
