Universal Studios Hollywood building haunted maze inspired by rocker Alice Cooper
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Alice Cooper is inviting theme park visitors into his nightmares this Halloween season.
Universal Studios Hollywood announced plans Tuesday to construct an attraction based on the macabre rocker's album "Welcome to My Nightmare," and its upcoming sequel "Welcome 2 My Nightmare."
The maze will feature Cooper's music as well as "guillotine decapitations, electric chairs, a sadistic insane asylum, predatory snake and giant black widow spiders."
The walk-through experience will be part of the theme park's annual "Halloween Horror Nights" event, which begins Sept. 23 and continues on select nights through Oct. 31. Other attractions planned for this year's event include mazes based on director Eli Roth's "Hostel" horror movies and Universal's upcoming prequel to "The Thing."
