Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare has announced additional onsite experiences for the ultimate Halloween horror event, this year held at WestWorld Of Scottsdale in Scottsdale, Arizona for select nights from September 19-November 1, 2014.
As in 2013, Great American Nightmare will feature a Rob Zombie museum area displaying memorabilia from the groundbreaking musician and filmmaker’s movie and music career.
In addition, galactic hard rockers Powerman 5000 have been added to the September 19 opening night concert–already featuring headliner Rob Zombie.
Powerman 5000’s new electro-tinged album Builders of the Future (T-Boy Records/Ume) is available on iTunes, Amazon.com, and PledgeMusic.com and features the song “Invade Destroy Repeat,” currently receiving airplay on KUPD-FM in Phoenix.
Great American Nightmare is a fully immersive haunted house experience featuring three attractions based on Rob Zombie’s own horror films: The Lords Of Salem In Total Black Out, Captain Spaulding’s Clown School In 3D, and The Devil’s Rejects.
The shocking–and sometimes disturbing–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, andsalacioushumor that will make patrons scream with fright and laughter.
The Great American Nightmare’s Bloody Boulevard will feature freak shows, musical entertainment, roaming characters, themed food and beverages, games and vendors each night.

Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare 2013 received widespread praise from the media, as noted below:
“Great American Nightmare may be the best example yet of the upsizing of haunted houses over the last decade…”
–Steven Kurutz, The New York Times, October 24, 2013
“All of the demented, satanic, bloody – yet, at times, comical – things that have defined rocker-turned-horror-director Rob Zombie’s film career are all coming to life in his Great American Nightmare fest…”
–Kelli Skye Fadroski, Orange County Register, October 10, 2013
“…for fans of bloodcurdling horror, it is like a dream come true…The 3-D effects are stunning…a truly intense and horrific experience that will most likely have an effect on you long after you leave the grounds…the sets are expertly crafted and the actors are top-notch. This is Hollywood horror at its finest…To Zombie’s credit, he holds back nothing, delivering a truly frightening experience that is vivid and supremely unforgettable. It is provocative, graphic and quite daring. In a very real way, he has re-invented the haunted house.”
–Chris Epting, Loudwire.com, October 14, 2013
“…far and away the most intensely disturbing haunted house we have ever experienced…This is no schlock – the level of detail is truly jaw-dropping…one hell of a good time.”
–Joe Daly, Metal Hammer, October 11, 2013
