LOS ANGELES – 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.”

“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,'” Cooper said in a statement. “This will be a nightmare that will haunt visitors' dreams for a long time to come.”
