Get Spooked for Halloween in Las Vegas
It's almost that time of year, Cheapos! The Day of the Dead is fast approaching and what better way to
fear enjoy it than a Halloween in Las Vegas? Sin City offers many spooks and scares, and we're not even talking about the ones in the Las Vegas clubs. Many of the city's best attractions transform into ghoulish nightmares that Casino Boy loves going to regardless of the nightmares he'll have for the next few nights. Some of the best attractions in Las Vegas are classic Halloween haunts.
Even better, there's one particularly notable haunted spot that's brand spankin' new! So if you've done Halloween in Las Vegas before, don't think that it's all the same. This season promises to have
bloodier fresher thrills than ever before!
Here are four haunted places you can't miss for a scary Halloween in Las Vegas. Do try not to wet yourself!
- Trilogy of Terror: Three haunted attractions are part of the Freak Pass for $29 at Trilogy of Terror. The pass gets you access to Circus of Horrors, Castle Vampyre and Gates of Hell. If Gates of Hell sounds extra gory, that's because it is. It's rated-R and if you're under 17, you won't even be allowed in (unless accompanied by an adult, but that's not the point)! You can get passes to each attraction individually, but c'mon! Surviving all three is a test of your bravery and we'd hate to see you whimper out. Especially with all those girls in line...
- Eli Roth's Goretorium: The Goretorium is the Las Vegas Strip's only year round haunted attraction and it's brand new! If you haven't been to Las Vegas in the past month, then you have yet to experience Eli Roth's Goretorium. You might recognize Roth's name from movies like Hostel and Inglorious Bastards. Walk through the Goretorium and experience fright you haven't known since you were a little kid. Our favorite part is the 60's go-go lounge at the end of the tour where you can have a drink and feed zombies. Just watch your fingers!
- Haunted Reef: It's the time of year when the Shark Reef at the Mandalay Bay becomes...The Haunted Reef (dun, dun, dun)! The Haunted Reef is a perfect spooky attraction at the Mandalay Bay for families enjoying Halloween in Las Vegas. It doesn't have the same gore level as the other attractions, but the Halloween spirit is very much alive! Plus, sharks are scary anyway. Kids under 12 who dress up get in for free and adults also have the chance to get in without paying. All it takes is a little blood donation at the United Blood Services booth because, well... the zombie food is getting dry...braaiins!
- Fright Dome: The Adventuredome at Circus Circus is one of Casino Boy's favorite Vegas attractions and even more so during Halloween. Another great attraction for Halloween in Las Vegas with the family, Fright Dome is the spookiest amusement park you've ever been to. The park at Circus Circus covers five acres and features bloody actors and ghoulish rides that will scare you out of your pants. Well, not literally out of your pants. That'd be really unfortunate since they'd be hard to find again in all the fog. Maybe wear a belt!
Halloween in Las Vegas can be a

valentines has just been celebrated and though Halloween are still months away but i'm sure that preparations for this in hotels are in full swing. and yes, why not. let's get spooked for Halloween in Las Vegas.
You guys missed the boat on this blog post.
As somebody who went to it last year, I can tell you that the Freakling Bros. Trilogy of Terror is a great show. You better have a rental car, because you ain't gonna get there without one. Perhaps you could get there and back by bus somehow, but you'd spend hours going back and forth. Very creative haunts, and Gates of Hell is definitely not for children based upon the language I heard.
I have not been to Fright Dome, and don't plan to go. From everything I have read, you will wait forever to go through their haunts if you don't buy the VIP pass, and despite how expensive it is, I hear little positive about the experience from online resources.
There are two downtown haunted attractions that you never mentioned. Shame on you CB.
The Las Vegas Haunts, a two-attraction enterprise, moved one of its attractions to downtown, on one of the cross streets near one of the entertainment stages, it sounds like from a review I read today. The LV Haunt asylum is running downtown, while its hotel-themed attraction remains in North LV. Good for tourists that want to see a haunted attraction from the comforts of the tourist district. LV Haunts puts on good shows, I saw both of their attractions last year, too. Their mazes are not as unique as Freakling Bros., but they do an excellent job of playing up their themes with props and decorations, and there are some cool/interesting scenes.
Also downtown this year is The Screamont Experiment, a new attraction run by the Amazing Jonathan, evidently. Early review I read was not favorable, and the marketing/promotion of this has been poor thus far, according to the Facebook page for the SE. Allegedly there weren't signs pointing to the attraction inside the dingy ol' LVC this past weekend, and employees weren't certain of what was happening. The bowels of the LVC seem like a great place for a haunted attraction, to be sure.
Try to do your homework next time, Casino Boy.
i'll be looking forward for my stay in las vegas not just to be of great time but also meaningful too as i'll travel with my family together for the first time now that my kid are already grown up.
