How far would you drive to be frightened for Halloween this year?

OK, we don’t mean frightened in a 2020 way, like the way you feel after reading the latest coronaviru­s numbers.

We mean real, honest to goodness frights you get when you walk around Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando, which sadly was canceled due to COVID this year.

If your answer is, “Yes, I would get off my couch to cross the county line to Broward,” let us introduce you to The Horrorland Horror House, to fulfill all your Halloween in quarantine dreams.

If your kids are despondent about not being able to go door to door to trick or treat, this is not for them. The so-called risk free event is for ages 13 and up. Jump scares are served up at Horrorland at Miramar Regional Park while you stay safely, germfree in your car.

Produced by South Florida event industry vets Live 305 Entertainm­ent, the creepy drivethru features themed rooms such as The Carnival, Hospital of Horrors, Dark Barn and Christmas Nightmare.

“We practice social distancing so you can focus on the horror and scares,” says an evil sounding narrator on a video voice over.

“We are inviting all Halloween fans to play in our immersive horror game,” says the descriptio­n on the website. “With our fully immersive attraction, you become the protagonis­t of an unraveling a horror movie happening around you in real time.”

Details: Horrorland runs Oct. 1 through Oct. 31, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., 16801 Miramar Parkway, 800-383-6119. Tickets from $38.99 per car at www.eventbrite.com.
