During Halloween week, people fly to Vegas with only one thing in mind and that is to party hearty in Sin City till they can party no more! Las Vegas certainly does have the reputation of being the number one Halloween party destination in the world and all it takes to agree is one look at the citywide Halloween event venue. One great Halloween event after another takes place during the entire month of October!
Many Halloween partiers literally wear only their costume on the flight to Las Vegas and they pack no baggage. These same folks go from one Halloween event to the next for several days, then board the plane wearing the same costume on the fight back home.
Many agree that the "fly in costume with no bags" travel method is the best way to get the most out of doing Halloween in Sin City, but the straight laced fellow passengers on the plane may disagree. The aroma of a costume soaked with several days of sweat, burger stains and spilled drinks combined with green face paint is enough to horrify fellow passengers in adjacent seats, especially when the green face turns out to be real and the barf bags that are supposed to be in the airliner seat pockets were not restocked. "Oh the horror ... the horror of it all!"
Fortunately, not everybody that travels to Vegas for Halloween has a "party till they puke" agenda, especially those who have intentions of winning a costume contest. Honestly, there is a lot of money at stake, because the cumulative prize money for every Vegas Halloween costume contest that takes place in the valley is nearly enough to wipe out the national debt. Prizes range from complimentary bar tabs, brand new cars, all expense paid vacations, hundreds of thousands of dollars and of course monumental fame!
Imagine flying back home to Tulsa, Oklahoma and being able to brag about being the 1st prize costume contest winner at the Fetish & Fantasy Ball. Now that is a prize worth bragging about, especially when the entire costume can fit into an empty box of breath mints! Yes, there is a sexy side to Halloween in Vegas and many uninhibited bombshells cherish the thought of letting it all hang out on stage once a year.
This city offers many Halloween theme exhibits that can be experienced for a reasonable price or for free. Madame Tussauds Wax Museum at the Venetian Casino Resort is always a great place to start. The Fremont Street Experience definitely is Halloween party zone central, with live bands rockin' the night away under the canopy. The multi million dollar Halloween exhibit at the Bellagio Casino Resort Conservatory Atrium offers visions of everything from scarecrows to talking trees.
Las Vegas Halloween haunted house attractions are frightening beyond belief and the haunted house tour is the only thing that keeps many visitors returning year after year. Venturing off of the Las Vegas Strip to experience the diverse variety of scary haunted house attractions is a good way to get the best bang for the buck during Halloween week.
Some of the local people have a favorite haunted house that they return to year after year. The haunted houses production companies realize that customer loyalty is a key to their success, so they continually improve their horror filled offerings. There really is no such thing as the same old haunted house, because something new is added or an entirely new theme is adopted for Halloween each year.
The Asylum of Terror and Hotel Fear are run by the same haunted house production company. Both of these fright destinations receive extraordinary reviews year after year. Another one of the greatest horror production companies on earth is the Freakling Brothers. The Freakling Brothers operate the world's only "R" Rated house of horrors and the entrance fee is a bit pricy. As the old saying goes, "you get what you pay for" and if getting scared to death is what you desire, then you certainly will not live long enough to be disappointed.
One haunted attraction that never changes location is the Fright Dome at the Circus Circus Casino on the Vegas Strip. Okay, just forget about this place if you are scared of clowns, because you will never make it past the front door. Circus Circus is clown city, baby! By far, the Fright Dome is over and above the most hardcore scary Halloween experience in the city and quite possibly the entire universe. Just be sure to pack some clean underwear to change into after the show!
"But where can the real Las Vegas ghost be found?" The local paranormal investigators have the answer to this question! There are paranormal tour companies in Las Vegas that specialize in this area of expertise. There also is the Bonnie Springs Ranch Ghost Adventure. The Bonnie Springs paranormal venture actually involves stirring up ghosts of the old west.Each year the specialized haunted house attractions do change location, because these macabre realms of terror are actually temporary portable buildings that vanish like ghosts after Halloween is over. As far as finding the many Halloween haunted house attractions goes, all I can say is try typing the key words "Las Vegas-Halloween-Haunted House" in a search engine and wait for the results. Soon, many websites will appear that list the haunted house destinations.
No matter whether you celebrate Halloween to party, win a sexy costume contest or just to plain old get scared out of your wits, Sin City is the place to be in October. Every bar, tavern, casino and nightclub in Las Vegas offers plenty of fun filled Halloween parties all night long!
