MCDonald’s Celebrates Halloween with Haunted Restaurant & Giveaways

When you’re in the mood for a good scare, generally you don’t head for the comforting predictability of your local fast food joint.

But this year, McDonald’s is putting on quite the spooky spectacle by turning its Chicago headquarters into a haunted restaurant, complete with an LED lightshow and freebies.

The burger chain’s Halloween celebration began this weekend, when it unveiled its outdoor installation. According to a release, it includes a 1,630-square-foot LED screen with 10,000 individual lights, as well as hundreds of jack-o-lanterns, ghosts and skeletons. Spooky music complements a menu item cemetery, where the McPizza, the McD.L.T. and Onion Nuggets have been laid to rest.

For those who choose to dine at Mickey D’s across the country, a brand-new instant-win game (called “Trick. Treat. Win!”) is featured on food packaging. Customers can win food, vacations and even a new car.

If you want to catch the lightshow, it will be run two times every hour from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. local time until October 31st.
