Rob Zombie Anounces Another Location for This Year's Great American Nightmare

After announcing the return of Great American Nightmare, a horror and music event, in Phoenix, Arizona, this fall, Rob Zombie has added another location for the event.

The Chicago metropolitan area select nights from September 26-November 1 at Odeum Expo in Villa Park, Illinois will also see the event.

Rob Zombie is scheduled to perform on opening night as well.

"I am thrilled to be able to expand the Great American Nightmare to TWO new cities this year,” said Zombie. My only goal is to make it twice as sick as last year."

The Great American Nightmare’s second city will feature three attractions based on Zombie’s own horror films: The Lords Of Salem In Total Black Out, The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto 3D, and Haunt Of 1,000 Corpses. These attractions were first seen at the 2013 GreatAmerican Nightmare debut in Pomona, California and have been improved and enhanced based on visitor feedback.

The fully immersive haunted house experience at Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will include the Bloody Boulevard with freak shows, musical entertainment, roaming characters, themed food and beverages, games and vendors each night.

"After the tremendous success last year we all felt we wanted to bring Great American Nightmare to as many people as possible,” says Great American Nightmare producer Steve Kopelman. “Chicago is a haunted house hotbed with the Odeum Expo center being the go-to haunted house venue for the past two decades. We really feel the Midwest will welcome this event with open arms and this will be the ultimate Chicagoland Halloween event.”
