'SLIPKNOT has announced a partnership with the Des Moines, Iowa haunted attraction Slaughterhouse. The 10,000 square-foot haunt will feature memorabilia from the group, meet-and-greet events, about 40-50 actors who will bring the band's "iconology, lore and culture" to life, and even an opportunity to go through the Slaughterhouse with a Slipknot bandmember.
Percussionist and co-founder Shawn "Clown" Crahan spoke about the collaboration at a news conference today inside the attraction, which first opened in 2010. "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.'- via Blabbermouth
