Dutch Car Wash’s 3rd annual ‘Tunnel of Terror’ a screaming success

AURORA, Colo. — Over 1,000 customers flocked to Dutch Car Wash on Oct. 27-31 to experience the third annual Tunnel of Terror, according to a company press release.


The event was free for wash club members or $19.99 (per vehicle) for non-members.

The Tunnel of Terror included the top “Ceramic” wash, along with frills and frights. 

This year’s Tunnel of Terror featured scary animatronic props, fog machines, holograms, ghostly decorations and creepy Halloween actors.

“We went through the Tunnel of Terror and it was so worth it,” said Dutch Car Wash customer Jaxon White. “We have kids ages 5-11and it was a perfect first-time haunted experience. We can’t wait to go again next year.”

Dutch Car Wash launched the Tunnel of Terror in 2019 to entertain customers while providing a clean car.

The past two seasons have taken it to a new level as people seek safe, socially distanced holiday festivities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 “Our team and customers were excited about it as it gave us yet another opportunity to be #morethanwashingcars,” stated Dutch Car Wash owner Willy Beumer. “We look forward to more holiday events in the future!”


2 The Car Wash locations fundraising for holiday toy drive

HAWLEY, Pa. — On Nov. 6 and 7, The Car Wash on Hamlin Hwy, and The Car Wash on RT6 (Hawley) will be hosting a unique fundraiser to aid in the financial support towards the Zipper Junction Holiday Donation Drive, according to a press release.

The donation drive benefits under-resourced children and youth in Wayne and Pike Counties during the holiday season.

For the community to participate and give back, all they have to do is get a carwash at one of the two locations.

The Car Wash ownership will be contributing 100% of the sales these two days to the Zipper Junction Holiday Donation Drive.

During the past five years, Zipper Junction Holiday Toy Drive has been able to provide toys through the toy drive collection boxes located at businesses throughout the two counties, which provided to over 700 children and youth each of these five years.


Due to the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the collection of physical toys is not a viable option, Zipper Junction is relying on financial contributions to provide gifts to nearly 1,000 children and youth this 2021 holiday season.

The Car Wash on Hamlin Hwy has been a toy collection site since 2015, utilizing an open top Red Jeep for “drop-offs.”

In 2019, The Car Wash opened its second carwash location in Hawley, The Car Wash on RT6.

Not having a second red Jeep, they fabricated oversized Big Red Mailboxes for toy donations/collections.

It has been a huge success and many customers have been inquiring how to give this holiday season.

When approached this year about the what-and-how Zipper Junction Holiday Toy Drive would function, The Car Wash leadership said, “we will find a way to keep the spirit of giving alive.”
