Monster After Dark is a perfect family-friendly Halloween outing. This kid friendly drive-thru is the perfect adventure for young kids and families in October. The monsters are cute instead of scary, and we love that this activity is super unique
The two creators of Monsters After Dark hand-made all of the monsters on display. Each monster is set in a different scene, and we were amazed at the detail of the display. These monsters aren’t scary at all, and we think that the younger crowd will enjoy this activity the most (although I absolutely loved these cute monsters).
The drive-thru isn’t super long, but we like to go slow and check out all of the details. After showing your ticket, inch your car through the display while listening to the Halloween music in the background. Tune your radio to their Halloween music radio station when you arrive. And they allow free same day returns meaning you can drive through again, which we did.
They also had an I Spy game for the kids to play while you drive through and enjoy the monsters. Our older boys loved looking for each of the objects on the list. There are a bunch of hidden items and details that we probably would have missed if we hadn’t had the scavenger hunt to guide us.
We recommend going in the dark. The monsters looks so fun all lit up and partying after the sun goes down, but we did visit during daytime and enjoyed it just as much. No matter when you visit, the monsters are adorable.
This event costs $10/vehicle, so it’s definitely affordable for families and a great way to enjoy Halloween. Visit our post of 13 Unique Halloween adventures for other ideas like this one.
