A walkthrough of the new haunted attraction in Des Moines, Iowa formed as a partnership between SLIPKNOT and Slaughterhouse can be seen in the one-minute video below (courtesy of the Des Moines Register). The 10,000 square-foot haunt features memorabilia from the group, meet-and-greet events, about 40-50 actors who bring the band’s “iconology, lore and culture” to life, and even an opportunity to go through the Slaughterhouse with a SLIPKNOT band member.
SLIPKNOT‘s Shawn “Clown” Crahan comments on collaboration:
“It’s been a long time since we’ve done anything in Des Moines besides play shows, so we’re really happy to do this,” he said.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s going to be scary. And it’s going to be heavy metal,” he added. “Art at its most extreme.”
“We’re going to invite this to the entire world,” Crahan said. “Normally, that would be kind of a strange thing to say, but…you won’t believe who’ll show up. We have dedicated fans. When we [tour] Europe, they’re at every show.
“It’s all about the fans,” he said. “It’s all about a special experience, making it one-on-one, almost. It really is going to be a moment in our history, in their history. And our history in Des Moines.”
