Las Vegas is a place where people come to party, especially around Halloween. From costume parties, haunted houses, and live performances, here are 10 things you can do in Sin City during Halloween.

Fright Dome

Fright Dome intrigues horror fans and the brave at heart. The popular haunted house experience is returning to the Circus Circus Adventuredome for the 15th year in a row. Created by Jason Egan, Fright Dome is going all out to celebrate their milestone anniversary with six haunted houses, six scare zones, and live events. The haunted houses this year include Hex, a voodoo-inspired maze of terror, and the old favorite Chainsaw Massacre.

Attend the Fetish & Fantasy Ball

The ultimate costume party takes place every year at the Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa. Named one of the “Top Ten Events of the World” by the Travel Channel, the Fetish & Fantasy Ball allows its patrons to come as they wish, from modest angel to seductive kitten, without fear of shame or judgment. Tickets aren’t cheap, but every year promises a night that you will never forget.

Visit a Haunted House

No matter where you go in Las Vegas, you’re bound to run into at least one haunted house during October. Get your friends together and experience one of the many haunted houses that Freakling Bros. offers during the Halloween season, including the R-rated Gates of Hell. If that’s not enough of a scare for you, check out the Victim Experience, which takes its guests in and puts them in high-intensity, terrifying situations that they must find their way out of.

Explore the LINQ Promenade

If you’re traveling with kids, the LINQ is a great place to visit. With live performances, face painting, and events, the LINQ finds ways to celebrate Halloween unlike anywhere else on the Strip. Shops and restaurants in the promenade offer candy to trick-or-treaters, and the adults can participate in the annual costume contest. With a grand prize of $10,000 and events such as the Zombie Experience, the LINQ is a fun way to spend Halloween with friends and family.

Go to Sin City Halloween

Sin City Halloween has something for everyone. The weekend-long celebration returns to the El Cortez this year and includes a car show, costume party, fun run, and a block party. The fun will begin on Friday, October 27th with the “Hall of Horror,” a celebration of those who have made great contributions to the horror industry.

Fear the Walking Dead Experience

Fans of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead will love Fear the Walking Dead: Survival, the new escape room experience on Fremont Street. Located next to Slotzilla, the interactive escape room/survival game will thrill any adventure seeker and zombie fanatic. Those prone to motion sickness are cautioned ahead of time, as a part of the attraction involves a ride. The experience takes approximately 20 minutes to complete, but it is brimming with so much excitement that it will be over before you know it.

Escape “The Basement”

The ultimate escape room experience is perfect during October. Guests find themselves “trapped” in the basement of serial killer Edward Tandy and are given one hour to escape before becoming his next victim. Live actors interrupt your progress throughout the game, increasing the sense of urgency and serving as a distraction. This top-rated escape room is a great way to spend Halloween night for adults of all ages.

Go through Asylum and Hotel Fear

For a truly terrifying haunted house experience, check out the Asylum and Hotel Fear haunted houses by Las Vegas Haunts. Located in the parking lot of Meadows Mall, these haunts are more popular with locals rather than visitors. Each haunt tells a unique story, from the Meadview Health Sanctuary full of angry patients to the hotel full of things that go bump in the night. Entrance to both haunts start at $15.00, but if you’re brave enough to go through both, you can save money.
