Danger Run Halloween Ghost Run Driving Game Leads to Premier Kentucky and Indiana Area Haunts

Free Gas, Free Food, Free Fangs, Prizes and More in Store for 17th Year of Ghost Run Road Rally Driving Game

LOUISVILLE, KY--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - Danger Run®, a Halloween driving game played in a car that leads to two of the scariest haunts in the Louisville area, is gearing up for its 17th season this fall.

A record crowd of nearly 15,000 participated last year in the game that's been called "The Most Fun You've Ever Had in Your Car®."

Participants solve a series of cryptic directions written as rhyming clues that lead to two of the area's scariest haunted attractions.

Every carload of four or more receives a $10 Speedway gas card, which is estimated to cover the entire haunted adventure.

Danger Run utilizes multiple routes from each starting point location so that unexpected road closures (including the recent closing of the Sherman Minton Bridge) will not impact the event.

The object of the game is to complete the route with the fewest mistakes, determined by the accumulated mileage on your vehicle. Speed and time have no impact on the game. New this year, the top fifty groups will compete in the Danger Run Finals. First- and second-place prizes valued at over $500 are awarded to the groups who win the Danger Run Finals.

Danger Run takes place each year on the last weekend of September plus all full weekends in October. On any Friday and Saturday night from September 23 through October 29 from 7 p.m. - 11 p.m., participants can start at one of three locations -- Lowe's at 501 South Hurstbourne Parkway in Louisville, KY; 6651 Dixie Highway in Louisville, KY; or 1350 Veterans Pkwy in Clarksville, IN.

For just $16.99 per person, Danger Run participants will get an entire evening of Halloween entertainment including admission to two haunted attractions (valued at $40 per person), free food from DQ Grill and Chill, free fangs and a $10 Speedway gas card for carloads of four or more.

Also new this year, smartphone users who visit can access haunt wait times, play trivia games and much more.

"Danger Run is a great, inexpensive Halloween attraction," said Jessica Elliot from Louisville, Ky. "For the price you pay to get into one local haunted house, Danger Run is an entire interactive evening of Halloween fun that includes free admission to two local haunted houses."

Tickets can be purchased online at or at each starting gate. Student and military discount information is available on the website. For more information, visit or call 1-800-771-9750.
