Metro Car Wash in Tucson, Ariz., celebrated the week leading up to Halloween by transforming its Speedway Car Wash facility into a Zombie Car Wash. The company turned its carwash tunnel into a haunted theme ride that required 40 volunteer zombies per night to interact with customers. The event raised enough money for the carwash’s scholarship fund to pay for a year of school for one student next year at Pima Community College, according to the company’s Web site.
The weeklong event included Halloween-themed props and sets. Customers were asked to pay $10 to ride through the zombie tunnel and get their car washed. Additional donations also were accepted.
The event closed Halloween night with 30 volunteers performing a dance in front of the carwash.
“It was a great (and appropriate) way to close out five days of an event that seemed to have surpassed everyone’s expectations,” noted a blog entry on the Metro Car Wash Web site.
