UPDATED on 10/15/2020
The Haunted Highway has been canceled.
Organizers have posted a statement on the website. It says they underestimated the risks of keeping everyone safe.
It says refunds will be automatically issued back to your original payment method.
If you bought thru Groupon, that’s where your refund will come from.
Enjoy this haunted attraction from the safety of your own vehicle! The Haunted Highway opens at North Dekalb Mall (in the parking lot) on October 16, 2020 and runs through Halloween night, October 31st.
This is not an event we would normally consider to be “cheap.” But at this point, many of us are starved for any kind of affordable entertainment, and we realize that we’re saving money in other areas (gas for the car, hair appointments, clothing, you name it.)
But the price for The Haunted Highway isn’t bad, either. And there are discounts, through Groupon.
Regular price is $70 per vehicle, and you can have up to 6 people in your vehicle for that price — so, less than $12 per person if you can hit the maximum number allowed. Even for a date night for two people, it’s not terrible.
On the other hand, the advance ticketing fees are hefty and you’ll have sales tax added.
The service fee is $5.34 and tax is $6.23, bringing your total to $81.57 per vehicle if you buy online in advance.
The good news: There is a Groupon deal for just $55.
And, if you buy before midnight on Sept. 29th, you can get an extra 25% off, if you use the promo code SAVE.
When you buy the Groupon deal, you’ll choose between the Family-Friendly event and the PG-13 event, which are both described below.
There are no fees added on to a Groupon deal.
Be sure to read all the fine print before you buy.
Your paid admission includes:
- Haunted Highway drive-thru experience for up to 6 people
- “I Survived the Haunted Highway” photo opportunity
- Halloween swag bag filled with goodies
No oversized vehicles that will obstruct views — for example, RVs, limousines, jacked-up trucks, etc.– will be allowed entry.
North Dekalb Mall is located at:
2050 Lawrenceville Hwy

There are two versions of The Haunted Highway
♠ The family-friendly Haunted Highway
The family-friendly event is suitable for all ages and takes place from 3 to 7 p.m.
It lasts approximately 45-55 minutes, and includes safe trick-or-treating for the kids. They can wear their costumes and collect candy (masks on, windows down!)
It’s a safe way to keep the fun traditions and excitement of Halloween alive in an interactive and immersive format.
This is a not-so-scary Halloween adventure suitable filled with of friendly ghosts and a few tricks and treats along the way.
♠ The PG-13 Haunted Highway
Keep the little ones at home for this more grown-up version.
It takes place from 8 to 11 p.m., after dark, and is suitable for teens, adults, and those who want to celebrate Halloween as “a nightmare-fueled journey through terrifying hellscapes.” (That’s from the website! It also says you should be prepared to scream.)
Know before you go
There may be tickets available on-site, but we don’t know how popular the event will be, so you may want to buy online in advance.
When you buy tickets, you’ll choose a specific time slot on the half-hour. The website FAQs say you should arrive within 15 minutes of that time.
When you arrive, have either a printed paper copy of your ticket OR the electronic version ready to be scanned.
Your ticket is non-refundable, so choose your date carefully.
When your adventure starts, you will drive from scene to scene. Each scene will last approximately 5 minutes for a total journey time of 45-55 minutes. You will be asked to put your vehicle in park and turn off your lights prior to the beginning of each scene.
You’ll need to stay in your vehicle. There are no restrooms or concessions on site.
The event is rain or shine.
