Halloween 2020 During Covid-19


Halloween is coming up and many people are wondering what it’s going to be like this year due to the pandemic. The parties and the long nights of trick or treating have come to a pause this year. Luckily, Long Island has come up with quite a few scary Halloween activities while maintaining safe social distancing. 

One of the places that are participating in these events is Bayville Scream Park. Bayville Scream Park is reducing capacity, requiring masks and, of course, enforcing social distancing. They have two options to pick from. The first consists of a six attraction combo which gives you access to all six haunted houses such as a Haunted Mansion and a Haunted Asylum. The other option is a 45 minute drive-in horror movie with a live theatrical performance. This is a safe and secure experience where you remain in your car at all times. Bayville is on the North Shore of Long Island and the Scream Park is located at 8 Bayville Ave, Bayville NY, 11709. 

Another activity to do during the spooky season time is a Halloween themed car wash, located in Copiague only a few towns away from Massapequa called the Johnnie’s Car Wash. This car wash offers jump scares and theatrics while your car is being washed. This is a fun Halloween experience in which you also have a clean car afterwards. The cars will enter from Railroad Avenue into the wash where they will be queued in groups of 10, spaced 6-feet apart. The horror begins on the line, where four scenes will be set up along the sides with live actors feeding off a zombie apocalypse theme. Once entering the Tunnel of Terror, the driver must put the car in neutral and take their foot off the brake as the vehicle gets guided along a track. Tickets are $25 and are not sold in advance. They are strictly available at the door and are cash-only, with the proceeds going to Kids Need More and the Copiague Chamber of Commerce. This is a great event for people in search of a fun way to spend a night with friends and family while doing exciting Halloween activities. 

Although the change from last year’s Halloween to this year’s is very drastic, there are still a lot of exciting things to do especially on Long Island which, at this point, seems to be the epicenter of fall activities for the past few months. There are always your pumpkin patches and apple orchards, but there really is nothing quite like a scare during the spooky season.
