Alice Cooper is set to launch his very own theme park ride at the Universal Studios theme park in Los Angeles.

Welcome To My Nightmare is a ‘spooky’ maze and will only be a temporary attraction, forming part of the theme park’s Halloween celebrations, running from September 23 to October 31.

Universal Studios‘ creative director John Murdy has said of the ride: “As a life-long Alice Cooper fan who’s been motivated and inspired by his craft, I am absolutely thrilled by this incredible opportunity. It’s a nightmare come true.”

The attraction has been co-designed by Cooper and it incorporates guillotines, spiders, electric chairs and snakes, reports The Guardian, as well as playing host to songs from Cooper‘s forthcoming album, ‘Welcome 2 My Nightmare’, the sequel to 1975’s ‘Welcome To My Nightmare’.

Alice Cooper has said that the ride “is a nightmare that will haunt visitors’ dreams for a long time to come… [It’s a] living horror movie, so there’s no place more appropriate to offer a preview of the new [record].”

Alice Cooper will release ‘Welcome 2 My Nightmare’ on October 17. Produced by Bob Ezrin, the album features a guest appearance from Ke$ha – on ‘What Baby Wants’ – as well as original Alice Cooper bandmembers Denis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Neal Smith, who are reunited for three album tracks.
