Well Rob Zombie may not be making any more horror films in the immediate future but that doesn’t mean that he’s going to stop flexing his horror muscle. News broke today that this Halloween season Zombie will host a haunted amusement park chock full of all the things that fans of the man could possible want to see. Here’s the deets:
This is it! The ultimate badass Halloween experience! No one will walk away disappointed,â€ť says Zombie. â€śI am thrilled to bring The Great American Nightmare to California and begin a reign of bloody terror!â€ť
The FEARplex for Rob Zombieâ€™s Great American Nightmare will include 150,000 square feet of horror and entertainment and is not geared towards young children or the faint of heart. Patrons should be prepared for maximum scares!
At Rob Zombieâ€™s Great American Nightmare, patrons will sequentially enter three different attractions, each completely different in look, theme and effects:
Lords Of Salem In Total Black Out: This harrowing attractionâ€“based on Zombieâ€™s 2012 The Lords Of Salem independent horror filmâ€“is designed to twist the mind. It will accentuate some senses while limiting others. Fear of the dark, claustrophobia, and fear of the unknown will be preyed on as the visitor attempts to traverse this sixty-degree maze.
The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto 3D: Utilizing Chromadepth glasses, this innovative attraction will take the patron right into the middle of the irreverent world of Rob Zombieâ€™s El Superbeasto2009 animated exploitation musical horror comedy film based on the comic book series of the same name. The attractionâ€™s unique surprise entrance, brilliant colors, sudden chills and startling thrills, and salacious humor will make one scream with fright and laughter.
Haunt Of 1,000 Corpses: This terrifying attraction pays homage to the 10-year anniversary of the exploitation horror film House Of 1,000 Corpses, directed by Rob Zombie. This extreme, traditional haunted house will take visitors on a walking journey through a recreation of the filmâ€™s â€śMuseum of Monsters & Madmenâ€ť along with an expanded â€śMurder Ride,â€ť confronting notorious serial killers along the way. This high impact, highly detailed attraction will use state of the art animatronics, video effects, costuming, sound, scents and lights.
Rob Zombieâ€™s Great American Nightmare is produced by Rob Zombie, Steve Kopelman and Andy Gould, along with event music producers Kevin Lyman and John Reese.
The Great American Nightmare Monster Midway will offer outdoor screenings of classic horror films, a DJ, food vendors, beer, wine and spirits, and much more, with freak show characters roaming throughout the grounds each night.
