The Slaughterhouse today announces their new home in downtown Des Moines.

The Slaughterhouse will be bringing its Hollywood-quality haunted attraction to the old Bank of America building at 317 Sixth Avenue and will kick off this momentous occasion with a Krampus Krawl. Join the Beast of Christmas for a romp through downtown Des Moines this December 7th with an all-ages photo op before the Krawl to four Full Court Press establishments.

In Austro-Bavarian Alpine folklore, Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure described as “half-goat, half-demon”, who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts.

“It’s a holiday that feels a lot more like Halloween than Christmas. For those of us who prefer the darker side of the holidays, this is a great chance to bring your bad friends and children down to capture them in a frighteningly fun way.” said co-founder and Creative Director & Producer, Ian Miller.
