Slipknot launch their own haunted house theme park

Band describe the event as 'absolutely sickening'

Slipknot have launched their very own haunted house theme park attraction.

Scream Park will run in Sacramento, California from October 2 to November 1, featuring “three outrageous haunted houses and live horror entertainment”.

In an announcement video, band member Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan describes the event as “absolutely sickening”.

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor recently revealed that the band are talking about recording an ambitious double album that he says will be comparable to similar works by The Beatles, Prince and Pink Floyd.

The US metal band released their latest album ‘.5 The Gray Chapter’ in 2014 and will take an extended break of around two years before releasing anything new. However, their next project looks set to be a high concept effort that could also include a feature film a la Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’.

“The idea that we had was to kind of come up with the concept and then provide the soundtrack for it,” Taylor told New York radio station Q103. “But then I told them [band mates] the other day… I was, like, ‘Let’s take it even further and let’s make our ‘Purple Rain’, let’s make our ‘The Wall’.’ With a movie — not just the album, but do the movie… like, do everything. And they were pretty into it. It’s gonna be a few years before we even get into that, but just the fact that we’re laying the steps for it now just means that we’re right back to where we were, which is just being five steps ahead of the game.”
