Phoenix Drivers: Know Your Halloween Pickup Zones

As one of our busiest weekends of the year, Halloween creates major opportunities to earn — and provide five-star experiences for new passengers. To help every ride go smoothly, stick to these recommended pickup and drop-off locations while you're driving at Phoenix's biggest events.

Monster’s Block Party at El Hefe & Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row

Tempe is the place to be this weekend, especially this Saturday, Oct. 30 at the Monster’s Block Party. Head to Mill Avenue and 6th Street in front of El Hefe & Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row — the show starts at 9 PM, but you can expect the highest demand from 1 - 3 AM Saturday.

Pick Up and Drop Off

Ask your passengers to meet you on Maple Avenue just north of the block party, or on the east side of Mill on 6th Street. 

Wicked Ball at Talking Stick Resort

Talking Stick Resort hosts some of the Valley’s hottest parties. Wicked Ball by Relentless Beats promises to be one of the biggest this year, especially with headliners like Benny Benassi and Cash Cash performing. The show starts at 9 PM on Saturday, Oct. 29, with the highest demand from 1 - 3 AM.

Pick Up and Drop Off

Pick up passengers from the designated Rideshare Pickup Zone near the west entrance to the casino, which is accessible by turning north on Dobson off Talking Stick Way, then following the signs to the west entrance. You can drop off passengers at the main casino entrance. 

Haunted Hotel Ball 2016 at The Saguaro

The Haunted Hotel Ball kicks off at 9pm Friday, October 29, with events running through 2 AM Sunday morning. Expect highest demand from 12-3 AM Friday & Saturday nights. 

Pick Up and Drop Off

Head to the main entrance of the hotel on 1st Avenue, between Buckboard Trail and Drinkwater Boulevard. 

Ghostball 2016

Bars and clubs throughout the Scottsdale Entertainment District are hosting parties all weekend long, leading to back-to-back ride requests. 

Pick Up and Drop Off

Remember, pickups and drop-offs are prohibited on Camelback Road. While you're in the Entertainment District, stick to the inner lane of the horseshoe. Stopping in the outer lane isn't allowed. For easier pickups, try parking in the public parking lot just south of International.

Power 98.3/101.9’s Hip-Hop Halloween

Rap superstars Tech N9ne, 50 Cent, and Trinidad will all be performing at the Hip-Hop Halloween party on Saturday, Oct. 29 at the Rawhide Event Center. Gates open at 7 PM, and passengers will start leaving between 10-11 PM. 

Pick Up and Drop Off

You'll need to head to the venue's dirt parking lot. To get there, exit I-10 on Wild Horse Pass Blvd. Turn west, then south on South Maricopa Rd. Turn north on 48th Street (not Wild Horse Pass Road, since traffic backs up there), then east on Wild Horse Pass Road, and finally, north on SE Loop Road.

To exit the venue, leave the lot on SE Loop Road and turn north, then west on W North Loop Road. Turn north on 48th Street again, then west on Willis and north on 40th Street to Pecos Road.
