Halloween Attractions and Activities in Las Vegas
Take your other worldly experiences to another level by visiting one of Las Vegas’ notoriously frightening haunted houses, rides or locations around the city. Because many of these attractions were closed or had severely limited capacity in 2020, most vendors are anticipating very limited ticket availability. To get ahead of other eager attendees, it’s highly recommended to sign up for mailing lists or purchase tickets well in advance. Procrastinate at your own peril!
Journey into the demented and downright greusome world of “Dr. Craven,” a fictional character whose haunted halls are opened up for those who dare to venture within. Dubbed the “largest immersive haunted attraction in Las Vegas,” tourists are treated to a gripping 30-minute ride through a series of dimly lit rooms and corridors to peek at disturbingly lifelike displays that might keep you awake all night. The shocking and sometimes stomach churning sights in Fright Ride make this attraction particularly well-suited to adult visitors.
Freakling Bros. Horror Shows
The family owned and operated Freakling Bros. Horror shows are widely considered the scariest and most disturbing Halloween attractions in Las Vegas. Offering several distinct experiences of heart-pounding fright for guests with varying tolerances for fear, Freakling Bros. have created the only R-rated interactive haunted house in Nevada. In fact, attendees under 17 won’t be admitted without a parent or guardian and children under 13 cannot attend. Designed to take you to the edge of terror and beyond, venture to the signature haunted house known as the “Gates of Hell” at your own risk.
SAW Escape Room
While it’s technically open all year, the official SAW escape room lets visitors revel in the terror of scenes from the beloved movie franchise. Try to keep our nerves under control as you and a group of friends or co-workers work together to solve a series of puzzles designed to keep you trapped in the bone-chilling Egan & Co. meat-packing plant. Voted the top escape room in the nation by USA Today, the SAW escape room is a perfect event for visitors that want an experience you can’t find anywhere else. Visit the official website for more information, FAQs, and tickets.
Haunted Museums and Tourist Attractions
Halloween in Las Vegas is the perfect time to visit a haunted museum or take a self-guided tour of spots around Sin City that are known for paranormal activity or unexplained occurrences. Here are just a few to consider as you plan the perfect list of things to do on Halloween this year:
- Zac Bagan’s Haunted Museum - owned by the widely known paranormal investigator and host of Ghost Adventures, Zach Bagan’s museum is home to a treasure trove of haunted artifacts that you can’t see anywhere else, including a pair of Charles Manson’s false teeth!
- Mob Museum - with so much of the city’s history being rooted in shadowy mob culture, it’s only fitting to celebrate Halloween in Vegas by learning some haunted history at the Mob Museum, strolling past mob enforcer Tony Spilotro’s La Palazza mansion, or peeking at Bugsy Seigel’s guest suite in the Flamingo.
- Westgate Hotel & Casino - it’s rumored that you can catch a glimpse of the King, Elvis Presley, whose ghost haunts the location where he played over 600 live shows.
If you get hungry while touring haunted attractions and enjoying Halloween in Vegas, stop for a delicious bite to eat and a comfortable place to rest, relax or pick up a souvenir at Miracle Mile Shops. Home to over 1.2 miles of storefronts, 150+ shops and multiple performance venues located just off of the Las Vegas Strip, Miracle Mile Shops is a favorite destination for tourists and locals alike!
