Slipknot’s Scream Park ushers in a new era of haunted house entertainmentOctober 15, 2015 - Entertainment
This October, Slipknot’s Scream Park will introduce us to a new brand of horror. Featuring three haunted houses, each Slipknot themed, this event is sure to be unlike anything in the area. Sacramento, California has long been a hotbed for haunted house entertainment, often boasting six or more professional quality haunted house events. With such stiff competition comes wild innovation, leading to Sacramento’s status as a mecca for horror. Scream Park California, a contender in this competitive field, has partnered with one of the biggest names in the music industry to establish themselves once and for all as the premier destination in California for horror entertainment.
Slipknot’s Scream Park, a production of metal band Slipknot, and Sacramento attraction Scream Park California, has thrown down the gauntlet, claiming that no event in the area will even be comparable to what they have created. Says co-producer Nathan Polanco, “We’re truly a different brand of haunted house. Scream Park California has always been different from the crowd, but with the addition of Slipknot, we’ve got something really special here. The haunted houses are horrifying, the atmosphere is great. It’s just a ton of fun.”
Polanco is known for producing adults-only haunted houses across northern California. His events have often received media attention as more than your run-of-the-mill horror carnival. They often feature mature themes, and are known for their shock value. “Last year we had a pretty good proportion of grown men screaming like girls.” Polanco claims his company prides itself on being the scariest, most fun experience around.
When asked to describe the attractions, Polanco said only that “The haunted houses are enormous, maze-like structures with very little light. Your eyes will likely be closed the whole time, but if you manage to sneak a peak, you’ll meet some of the most unsavory, irritable creatures imaginable, and see scenes you’ll wish you hadn’t.”
The event is open twenty nights throughout October, starting on the 2nd. For tickets and information, visit ScreamParkCalifornia.com.
