After opening their car wash, Vivacity Auto Spa, next to their ARCO station on Arizona Avenue and Chandler Heights, Zuhair and Amy Alhaig thought it would be fun to plan a haunted car wash for the community. While it is admittedly a lot of work, the Alhaigs will not disappoint this year, bringing Chandler its 4th Annual Haunted Car Wash.
This year will be bigger and better, with a longer entrance, professional lights and sounds, creepy characters, and designated nights supporting local charities.
Customers can have their vehicles cleaned while enjoying a slow, spooky ride through the car wash. There will be lots of interaction with costumed actors engaging with customers throughout the line, inside the tunnel, and while exiting.
“It is always fun trying to scare teenagers and adults,” they say, though assuring that, “nobody will touch you or grab you. You're sitting in your car throughout the whole process. Unless, of course, your window is open!
“We also want the wash to be family-friendly, and we will leave out some of the scarier aspects if kids are in the car if requested at check-in.”
Officers from the Chandler Police Department will be on hand to direct traffic and ensure everyone’s safety.
The cost is $20 per vehicle, no matter how many people can cram in. It’s open from 6-9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, from Oct. 13-14, 20-21, and 27-28.
