Take a thrill ride Oct. 28 at DirtFish Rally School

Maybe you’ve heard a spooky legend about Snoqualmie’s old mill site and want to investigate, at night, or maybe you’re looking for a Halloween-themed thrill. Either way, DirtFish Rally School on the old mill site in Snoqualmie has you covered with its new offering, Haunted Hot Laps.

On the night of Saturday, Oct. 28, the Snoqualmie business is hosting a thrill ride event, in its race cars, driven by professionals, through the mill site, in the dark. Not thrilling enough? Hang in there.

“We’ll have bodies being thrown at the cars, and buckets of fake blood, strobe lights and smoke,” said Trevor Wert, media director at DirtFish.

The haunted hot laps are, gruesome appearances aside, part of the company’s effort to reach more local residents in the community, says Wert.

“This is one of the cheaper events we’ve ever offered,” he explained. “This is an opportunity for us to reach more people in the community.”

At $75, the experience won’t compare to the $800 half-day training, but it’s a start. The professional drivers for each hot lap are also instructors at the school and some are former racers.

Also, keeping its nearby neighbors in mind, Wert said, “We’re going to be running quiet cars for this event.”

Outside of the car, the event will include costumes and bonfires and the traditional Halloween accompaniments.

Spots are filling up quickly for the event and the school has already sold out once then increased the number of time slots available. Visit www.dirtfish.com for reservations.
