Fall is in full swing, and Halloween is on the horizon! SpotHero is getting into the spirit of the season by examining our beloved monsters and considering how they could benefit from using SpotHero for a fantastic October.
Legends of supernatural undead creatures that prey on the living after nightfall by consuming their essence have existed for millennia. But most modern depictions of vampires come from Bram Stoker’s famous 1897 novel, Dracula. The story of the mysterious Count living in a foreboding Transylvanian castle was so successful it helped spawn the vampire literature genre! Modern descriptions of vampires may vary, but everyone agrees on a vampire’s food of choice: they vant! to suck! your blood!
How Vampires Use SpotHero
Even immortal beings need to worry about parking. And vampires have more worries than most. Unable to go out in the daylight, vampires like to use SpotHero to book an all-day spot in a covered garage, and since they’re up in the wee hours, they look for a garage with 24-hour access!
Another creature with a long history, stories of people transforming into monstrous wolves during the full moon date back to Ancient Greece! While werewolves spend most of their lives looking and acting like regular people—once a month, they are cursed to transform into vicious and powerful man-wolf hybrids with an insatiable hunger.
How Werewolves Use SpotHero
Werewolves have little control once their curse takes effect, so they like to transform in an area without a lot of people. They like to book an in-and-out spot to make the trip to the woods and return at their convenience. In case they’re caught unaware by a sudden bout of wolfiness, they like big garages with lots of space.
Ghosts are the spirit or soul of a dead person as perceived by the living. They are thought to come in many forms and appear for many reasons—but many people feel that ghosts linger in an attempt to wrap up unfinished business, often by haunting a particular spot or asking the living to complete things for them. Unfortunately, that gets tricky; the only widely recognized ghost saying is “boo!”
How Ghosts Use SpotHero
When ghosts need to park near their favorite haunts, they opt for a touchless spot that tracks using their license plate. That way, they don’t have to worry about being unable to press buttons!
The only one of their kind, Frankenstein’s monster is also referred to as “The Creature” or simply “Frankenstein.” This monster first appeared in the 1818 novel Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus, by Mary Shelley (often thought to be the first horror novel ever written)! A product of the eccentric scientist Viktor Frankenstein, who built the creature himself and reanimated it using electricity harnessed from a thunderstorm. This monster is described as eight feet tall and “hideous,” though personally, we think that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
How Frankenstein’s Monster Uses SpotHero
Power is important for The Creature. After all, it’s the reason they’re “aliiiive!” Frankenstein’s monster uses SpotHero’s filters to find spots that offer EV charging so their car can always have a full battery.
These mythological creatures are also known as the undead. Zombies are reanimated corpses, cursed to walk the earth with an insatiable appetite for human brains!
How Zombies Use SpotHero
Zombies often run the risk of losing an appendage or two, so they try to book a facility that is as close to their destination as possible. This comes in handy at big events, as they can exit faster; the closer they are to the exit, the less likely they will lose their arm in the long shuffle to and from their spot!
