Drive-Thru Scream Zone: Road Kill

Oct 1 - Oct 31, 2020

San Diego's favorite fright fest, the Scream Zone, is taking the scares to the streets in Drive-Thru Scream Zone: Road Kill, Oct. 1-31 at the Del Mar 'Scaregrounds'.

The Scream Zone has been tempting terror-lovers for the past 23 years, but the 2020 event will take a whole new spin. To comply with COVID-19 health and safety protocols, guests will experience the frights from the dis-comfort of their own automobile. Vehicles will weave through a mile-long course transformed into scenes from classic horror films and the demented minds of the Scream Zone’s imaginative creators.

At the Drive-Thru Scream Zone: Road Kill, the only roadside assistance coming to your aid is a triple threat of zombies, serial killers, and killer clowns.
