Alice Cooper’s Halloween Horror Nights

Man, the summer’s barely half over and boys and ghouls are already making plans for Halloween.

Well, at least Alice Cooper is.

With a new album due September 13 – “Welcome 2 My Nightmare” (the sequel to his 1975 masterpiece) – Alice has teamed up with Universal Studios Hollywood to present a new "Halloween Horror Nights" maze inspired by the ’75 concept album and the updated 2011 version.

The “Alice Cooper: Welcome To My Nightmare” attraction will take guests on a trip through Alice's twisted mind, where his most famous songs, bizarre themes and demented characters collide inside a living horror movie.

This original, one-of-a-kind walk through experience will feature trademark elements from Alice's celebrated shows, including guillotine decapitations, electric chairs, a sadistic insane asylum, predatory snake and giant Black Widow spiders that have helped make his imagery timeless and indelible.

"We'll be creating this living horror movie within screaming distance of the sound stages where horror movies first began, so there's no place more appropriate to offer a preview of the new `Welcome 2 My Nightmare,' says Cooper. “This will be a nightmare that will haunt visitors' dreams for a long time to come."

The “Alice Cooper: Welcome To My Nightmare” attraction begins September 23 and continues on select nights through October 31.
