Production company Kowagarasetai, which specialises in haunted houses and horror events, has launched the attraction to keep customers and performers safe during the coronavirus pandemic.

The company's founder Kenta Iwana told CNN Travel: ''With the virus, I knew there would be no way we could have a traditional haunted house, with all that screaming in a small confined space.

''When I read that drive-through theatres were making a comeback, it was my 'aha' moment.''

Social distancing is observed at the attraction, which gives visitors a simulation of a zombie attack from inside their vehicles.

Cars are covered in fake blood during the experience but are cleaned after each performance, although the company warns they might not be spotless.

The website states: ''We cannot remove every drop of blood. It will be clean enough to drive on the road.''
