The Los Angeles County Fairplex, which went dark for Halloween 2012, hosted the debut of a new horrifying event in 2013. Though a success, Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare did not return to Los Angeles for 2014; instead, it moved to engagements in two other cities: Scottsdale, Arizona and Villa Park, Illinois.
2013 Archival Information
Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare featured dozens of live musical acts and three haunted house walk-throughs: Haunt of 1000 Corpses, The Lords of Salem, and The Haunted World of El Superbeasto 3D. The vibe was definitely rowdier than a traditional Halloween attraction but appealed well enough to its target audience to become a success.
