BY TATIANA POLASTRI AND MARCELO DE SOUSA, SAO PAULO — A large Ferris wheel with red lights illuminates a gloomy path at a horror theme amusement park in Brazil.

A line of cars carrying spectators moves slowly as actors dressed up as werewolves and witches approach the vehicles.

People in dozens of cars gathered on Friday at the Hopi Hari amusement park in the city of Vinhedo, in the state of Sao Paulo.

The horror theme park, closed because of the pandemic, reopened with a change aimed at preventing the spread of the new coronavirus: people enjoy the scary entertainment without getting out of the car.
