Slipknot create horror attraction to debut in October

by Tom Anstey | 04 Sep 2015

Heavy metal band Slipknot have taken a step outside of their usual musical zone to launch their own haunted house attraction as part of the returning Scream Park Sacramento.

Well known for their on-stage theatrics and outfits, the horror concept should be right up the band’s alley, who will launch the attraction in Sacramento, California on 2 October running until 1 November. Included in the popup will be three different haunted houses and ‘live horror entertainment’. The show and horror houses are expected to attract more than 30,000 visitors during the one-month run.

"Become aware. Stay alert. Know what's behind every corner,” said the band’s M. Shawn "Clown" Crahan. “We are bringing our temperature to a haunted house this October. If you suspect that something may frighten you, well then your instincts are correct. Be a part of the new way. The only way."

The three Slipknot-themed haunted houses featured at the event will be titled Prepare for Hell, Skin Ticket, and Clown's Playhouse. Details about the attraction have been scarce, though it is known one of the mazes will be pitch black, with entrants only being given a torch to navigate the terrifying hallways.

“Masterminding a full immersion in horror for attendees is right in line with much of what Slipknot stands for,” said a spokesperson. “From the band's very beginnings, Slipknot's visual and artistic aesthetic tapped into a deep appreciation of the horror genre. Across a career which to this point has notched 40 Gold and 12 Platinum albums and hundreds of millions of video views, Slipknot's driving forces have been brilliant music and showmanship, coupled with a profound willingness to unsettle.”
