Ever thought about spending Halloween in Las Vegas?
If you’re like me, when I think of Las Vegas, I think of slot machines and bachelor parties. I admit, I have never spent a Halloween in Las Vegas. However, if you’re into all of the ghostly and gruelish stuff, Las Vegas just might be what you’re looking for.
Did you know….. Halloween is actually a Nevada State holiday? Seriously! That’s not why Las Vegas is fast becoming known for its lavish haunted houses and scary theatrics. Actually, October 31st is their Statehood Day.
There’s something for everyone on Halloween in Vegas.
Every October, Circus Circus turns its 5 acre theme park into Frightdome! It features 25 rides, 6 haunted houses, scare zones and a 4-D Panic House. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Due to all of the blood, guts and gore, the Frightdome is not suitable for children under 12.
For all of you zombie lovers, you won’t want to miss the Zombie Escape. Dress up in your zombie attire and join in the horror experience located in the LINQ Promenade‘s back lot.
If you are looking for a totally terrifying experience, you might be interested in the Asylum & Hotel Fear. It is based on the story of the Meadview Asylum, headed by Dr. Vander and his son. You will have to navigate dark hallways where patients have taken over the asylum. There are a series of fright-inducing rooms that include the admitting area, nurse’s station, patients’ rooms, therapy room, the morgue and more.
Also, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino is offering Zombie Burlesque. I can only imagine some of the antics in that show.
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has the party of all Las Vegas Halloween parties! The annual Fetish & Fantasy Halloween Ball is a jaw dropping event guaranteed to be one of the most outrageous, bizarre and risque Halloween parties you will ever attend. You will be required to wear something fetish, fantasy or Halloweenish!
Not all of the Halloween activities are for adults. It appears that there are plenty of family activities to keep your younger ghouls busy.
This Halloween, the LINQ Promenade is the place where the whole family can celebrate the holiday. The Promenade transforms with Halloween decorations as street musicians, face painters, stilt walkers and zombies take over. So, with all of these activities, it creates a very festive Halloween party.
On Halloween, Town Square Las Vegas turns into Town SCARY. Children of all ages are invited to trick-or-treat through the streets of Town SCARY. Participating stores and restaurants will be passing out candy and many other activities will take place throughout the shopping center. So, you might want to check out the:
- Costume Contests
- Halloween Photos in Town Square Park
- Undead Maze (not recommended for kids under 10 years old)
- Cactus Coaster Rides
- Clark County Fire Department
- Bounce Houses
Town Scary is free and open to the public. Your kids should bring their own trick-or-treat bags to hold all of the goodies.
Bottom line, if you are wanting to get away, Halloween in Las Vegas could be calling your name. There are thrills and chills to be had for adults and families alike. As you can see, I’ve only mentioned a small handful of activities scheduled for the holiday. It seems as though most of the casinos and hotels have special ghostly things happening.
