Rob Zombie Unleashes Eerie Video Preview of His ‘Great American Nightmare’ Festival
Halloween is approaching fast and enthusiast of all things after the sun goes down, Rob Zombie, has unveiled a video preview for his Great American Nightmare concert series. In addition to featuring music acts every night, the grounds at the Pomona, Calif., FEARplex (Fairplex) will feature three main attractions.
Those in attendance will get more than just a concert. To fully embrace the spirit of Halloween, Rob Zombie has set up three thrilling haunted house experiences that can't be missed. The first is 'Lords of Salem in Total Blackout.' Based on the horror film 'Lords of Salem' by Zombie, this haunted house will test your will under the trying circumstances of sensory deprivation and claustrophobia. The maze (that's right, you can get lost) will feature staples of a typical haunted house, as the unknown lurks around any corner waiting for the time to strike. Oh, did we mention the maze is kept at a cool 60 degrees?
The second haunted house attraction is 'The Haunted World of El Superbeasto 3D.' Those familiar with Rob Zombie are well aware of his talents beyond the stage. 'The Haunted World of El Superbeasto' is an animated film by the shock rocker based upon the comic book that he also wrote. This experience will take challenge you through bits of fear combined with suddens bursts of laughter with a surprise entrance and the use of dazzling colors, all catered to the use of Chromadepth 3D glasses.
The final haunted house is the 'House of 1,000 Corpses' which will take you through the most traditional haunted house experience at Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare. As traditional as this attraction may be, it still goes leagues above the rest, incorporating as many senses as possible. Sound, scent and lights will overcome you as you stroll through the 'Museum of Monsters and Madmen' and eventually approach the 'Murder Ride,' which features infamous serial killers.
If you survive all three of the houses, you will be able to enjoy featured music acts at night and grab some food and drinks on the Bloody Boulevard. Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare is open from Oct. 10 - Nov. 2 on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of each week. Thursday night will focus on alternative rock; EDM on Fridays; hard rock and metal on most Saturdays; and Latin music on most Sundays, with Rob Zombie wrapping things up with a performance on the final day.
