Description: Great news for Halloween haunters in the Pomona area: the Los Angeles County Fairplex, which went dark for Halloween 2012, will host a brand new horrifying event this October, Rob Zombie’s American Nightmare. The fifteen-night extravaganza will run from October 10 through November 2, with three haunted houses and dozens of live musical acts.
The press release:
A Once in a LIFETIME ULTIMATE HALLOWEEN EVENT curated by groundbreaking filmmaker ROB ZOMBIE to TERRORIZE L.A. EVERY THURSDAY-SUNDAY from October 10th-November 2nd.
Groundbreaking musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie will unleash his Great American Nightmare on Los Angeles this Halloween season. This bone-chilling experience will combine the most advanced haunted house attractions with a not-to-be-missed music festival from top artists in hard rock, alternative, EDM, and more, every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from October 10 through November 2, 2013 at the Fairplex FEARplex in Pomona, CA, just outside Los Angeles.
A creative collaboration between masters of the macabre Rob Zombie and preeminent haunted house producer Steve Kopelman, the fully immersive haunted house experience will feature three attractions based on Zombie’s own horror films: Lords Of Salem Total Black Out, The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto 3D, and Haunt Of 1,000 Corpses. The shocking–and sometimes disturbing–fright attractions will offer a three-dimensional experience with animatronics and effects, a maze that is the ultimate definition of claustrophobia and fear, sudden chills and startling thrills, and salacious humor that will make one scream with fright and laughter.
As if these sinister attractions weren’t enough, Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will also feature 15 nights of music from top national and regional artists in the indie/punk, EDM, metal, rock and Latin genres including Andrew WK, BL3ND, Blood On The Dance Floor, Dirtyloud, Dirtyphonics, Doctor P, Emilie Autumn, Evol Intent, Fei-Fei, Goldfinger, Heavygrinder, Kottonmouth Kings, Metalachi, One More Time, Ozomatli, Reel Big Fish, Terravita, The Used, Twiztid, William Control, Zomboy, and many more.
In addition to music, one special night will also feature the outrageous pro
wrestling sensations Lucha Libre USA. Look for details about the music
performance schedule–including additional major headlining acts–to be
announced on June 29 and visit www.GreatAmericanNightmare.com for details.
Ticket will be available on June 29. Ticket prices and hours of operation are to be announced. Check the website in the upcoming days and weeks for more information.
