Girls in the UK are often told that they can do whatever they want. That nothing can stop them. If they can dream it, they can achieve it. And yet, when it comes to accessing and becoming proficient in sports and activities in PE lessons, they are being stopped before they can even begin.

The Women’s Baseball World Cup Was Played Under Gaslight

But do I tell you that? I’m struggling to figure it out. Do I start out by noting how few women there are in baseball in general? A few are in the booth (and wow, do people dislike when they dare to show up there). Rarely are women behind the plate. You’ll find girls in Little League, but only occasionally do they still show up on the field once they age out of it.

Watch a Teaser for Slipknot’s ‘Slaughterhouse’ in Des Moines

“It’s a whole other world. It’s a cinematic walk-through experience,” says Miller, in the video, revealing that the theme is that the people are the animals being set up to be slaughtered.

As can be seen, there are a number of Slipknot-related items throughout the attraction, while the band’s lyrical content also plays into the themes.

The Slaughterhouse is open Thursday through Sundays every week in October, plus it will be open on Halloween night. Tickets cost $20 and it’s estimated that 12,000 people may attend the attraction, which is a significant jump over last year’s attendance.
