The traditional Halloween activities of trick-or-treating and costume parties are out the window this year because of COVID-19. With a little creativity and an open mind, you can still find some scary fun if you know where to look.
Stalker Farms in Snohomish is bringing the thrills and chills to you in a different but safe way in 2020. It's a haunted maze with a twist. Instead of walking through a crowded haunted house, you can drive through their 40-minute attraction. Traffic security will guide you to each scary scene, where you will park and experience a unique haunt. This ensures everyone's safety by encouraging social distancing and allowing you to focus on getting scared while you're not driving.
Small and quiet vehicles provide the best experience. Get ready for a Halloween night like no other when you take the 2021 Toyota Venza through this haunted drive-thru.
Drive like a compact, perform like an SUV
The Toyota Venza is only 6 inches longer than the Toyota Prius, making it the perfect size for the Stalker Farms attraction as well as many other excursions. Weave between ghosts and monsters (or just traffic) with ease, park your vehicle in tight spots, and store it in your garage with plenty of space for your other belongings.
While driving the Venza, you'll notice features like:
- Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive that automatically enables the rear wheels on uneven roads
- Hill Start Assist Control to keep you stable on an incline
- Four different drive modes (Sport, Eco, Normal, and EV) each perform uniquely based on what you need from the Venza
- First-ever for Toyota, an available Star Gaze™ fixed panoramic glass roof that allows you to experience starry nights and clear, blue skies with UV protection
- Hands-free power liftgate makes loading the cargo area easy when your hands are full of Halloween candy and decorations
- Four USB charging ports and one auxiliary media port and Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging pad
- Available Smart Key System with Push Button Start
Because the Venza is a hybrid vehicle you can quietly sneak through a haunted maze but also achieve great fuel economy. The Venza delivers 40 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. As you run your daily errands or go on a long road trip, you'll spend less money at the pump and more on the activities you enjoy.
Spacious and comfortable interior
Make the Venza as comfortable as your couch at home with the available SofTex-trimmed seats with color-keyed contrast stitching. You can also add heated and ventilated seats to the front so you and whoever sits shotgun can feel comfortable regardless of the season. Ambient lighting gives the Venza a high-tech vibe to go along with the 12.3-inch touchscreen display that pairs with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa.
Reliable safety features
Don't be scared of the dark because the Venza has LED headlights and taillights to illuminate the road around you. The available Bird's Eye View Camera with Perimeter Scan uses four cameras to protect you from hitting potential hazards. Front and Rear Parking Assist with Automatic Braking is available to help you avoid vehicles or pedestrians that suddenly appear. When that happens, the Venza can slow the engine and activate the brakes automatically to help prevent a collision. Take the fear out of merging with the Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, which tells you when other vehicles are in your blind spot or approaching from behind you.
If all that doesn't make you feel secure, Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 is an active safety package that comes standard on every new Toyota Venza. This advanced precautionary safety system combines the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Road Sign Assist to heighten your awareness on the road.
The 2021 Toyota Venza starts at $32,470 MSRP.
