Tunnel of Terror

For Spring Hill residents who find themselves in the unique position of wanting both a clean vehicle and a Halloween-themed spooky experience, Washtopia has got them covered with its upcoming "Tunnel of Terror."

Set to open on Oct. 23, the Tunnel of Terror will see guests travel through a zombie-filled carwash complete with flashing lights and other effects before exiting into a zombie-filled parking lot.

"Our theme this year is Zombies Quarantined, so [guests] will experience zombies from start to finish, kind of like an apocalyptic [The Walking Dead] TV show," said Washtopia general manager Eric Ocha.

"It'll be a lot of fun; we'll have some scares, we're hiring some actors to help us out, and it'll probably be about 5-10 minute experience."

As the carwash will be filled with zombies, much of the tunnel equipment and chemicals will be turned off, though vehicles will "probably be a little cleaner than when [they] went in," according to Washtopia's website.

The Tunnel of Terror will be open from 8-11 p.m. on Oct. 23, 24, 30 and 31, the last two Fridays and Saturdays of the month.

Washtopia is also now hiring actors for the event. The pay for Tunnel of Terror actors is $12 an hour, with anyone 16 years-old and up eligible to apply. Acting experience is "a plus," but not required.

Washtopia is located at 4878 Port Royal Road in Spring Hill.
