Ah, there's truly nothing like the Halloween season. Of course, we’d be the first to say that we’d don a Slipknot mask and licensed jumpsuit on Halloween. But at a children’s play area? A creepy mask might not be the best idea.

Maybe that’s why parents freaked out when a parent freaked out when she took her son to the popular children’s venue and saw a man in a Slipknot mask.

Local source Kent Online said the mother expressed worry when the worker, donned in a mask, “began playfully chasing children in the soft play area.”

They initially thought the mask was Leatherface, a character from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But Slipknot fans would know it’s Corey Taylor’s mask from 2008’s All Hope Is Gone.

The mother, Charlotte Nolan said this, as reported by Kent Online: “He walked around the tables and then was accompanied by a rather graphic skeleton zombie character into the actual soft play area where the children were a lot of children were crying and visibly upset.”
