A 6 foot 2, 200 plus pound male in his mid thirties has no business being afraid of a little haunted house. Even if that haunted house is Rob Zombie’s. I was unable to convince myself to step foot into Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare. Why you ask? Because I was scared. I wasn’t scared something was going to happen to me, but i was scared that at 35 years of age I’d shriek or possibly even scream and I have too much pride for that. I have so much pride that I'm admitting that I was a little nervous about going through The Great American Nightmare.
That maze leads us into Captain Spaulding’s Clown School. Aside from the worlds longest down hill vortex this maze is more cool than scary. You must wear 3D glasses throughout. The vortex alone is worth the price of admission. I highly recommend waiting until after going through the mazes before you drink any alcohol. Your equilibrium will be off. I had to hold myself up as I walked through the vortex. It was incredible.
“3I” promises to be Zombie’s most vile film to date. The majority of the actors will be in this portion of the haunted house. In this house you need to survive several insane killers. This includes a giant puppet that chases after you and a chainsaw wielding maniac with sparks flying everywhere…and that’s just the tip of the ice berg. As I mentioned above, through out this tour there were members of the media screaming and it wasn’t even fully running. If you’re into haunted houses Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare doesn’t disappoint.
