Haunted houses and parties
As Halloween is almost here, we thought it might be fun to share some of the places in Las Vegas where you can partake in haunted houses and parties. Have fun and enjoy the creepy, scary fun!!
Twisted clowns and goblins descend upon the Circus Circus Adventuredome, twisting it into darkness and turning it into Fright Dome again this year. This year marks the thirteenth edition of Fright Dome, which can mean only one thing, a visit from the frights at Friday the 13th. Delve into the horrifying world of Jason Voorhees with “Friday The 13th 4-D: A Deadly 4-D Experience.”
Get your fright on in six haunted houses and four scare zones, including the new Freakshow attraction. This is the place to face your fears. One of the haunted houses, Insanitarium, is unique in that you go through alone.
The haunting starts after dark at 7 p.m. on weekends and select weekday dates.
For more information on Fright Dome, please visit fightdome.com.
The popular trio of haunted houses that is Freakling Bros. returns for 2015. This year, Gates of Hell and Castle Vampyre are joined by a new haunt, The Coven of 13.
There is a little something for everybody here, depending on your level of sickness and depravity.
Gates of Hell remains the first and only R-rated haunted house in Nevada. What does this mean? In order to enter Gates of Hell you must be at least 17 years old or accompanied by parent or guardian and you must sign a waiver.
Unlike most haunted houses, the actors may touch you. You can expect both mental and verbal abuse throughout. In case you cannot make it out, you are provided a safe word that will end your experience and return you to safety.
Also returning to Freakling Bros. is The Victim Experience. Based upon the Gates of Hell, The Victim Experience takes it up to a whole new level. Not much is revealed about this ahead of time, except that in the first year, only 30 percent of the “victims” were able to complete the experience.
Freakling Bros. is located at 4245 S. Grand Canyon Drive and opens at 7 p.m. nightly.
Asylum and Hotel Fear
Located in the Northwest Corner of the Meadows Mall (4300 Meadows Lane), Asylum and Hotel Fear are two haunted houses not to be missed.
Not to give too much away about these haunted houses, but the Asylum and Hotel Fear actually have themes and backstories that are linked together. Going through both houses gives you the complete story.
New to these haunts this year is a partnership with ScareCams.com. ScareCams.com provides photos of people getting scared inside the haunted houses. The haunting begins at 6:30 p.m. on weekends and select weekdays dates.
