It should come as no surprise that a town like Las Vegas does Halloween right. From safe trick-or-treats to full-on Sin City spectacles, there is something for all to enjoy in the month of All Hallows’ Eve.
In this post, we’ll explore what Halloween-themed spooktacular activities 2022 has to offer, including the best places to celebrate Halloween in Las Vegas for adults, as well as our favorite family-friendly Halloween activities in Las Vegas for spooky season merrymakers visiting with kids.
Let’s get spooky!
Halloween in Las Vegas for Adults
From escape rooms to haunted houses, to one of the best-known costume parties in the country, if you’re in search of a more sinful or scary Halloween experience, Las Vegas has something for you. Here are 3 of the best Las Vegas Halloween parties to add to your itinerary:
1. Fetish and Fantasy Halloween Ball
Looking for the ultimate Las Vegas Halloween party? Billed as Sin City’s “wildest Halloween Party” and “one of 5 events to attend before you die” by Maxim Magazine, the Fetish and Fantasy Halloween Ball has been going strong for 26 years. This year the ball is actually three nightly events back to back—Thriller on October 28, Sin City Halloween Ball on the 29th, and AfterLife: Nightclub of the Living Dead on October 30. This days-long party offers a variety of musical and erotic performers, and typically sees over 5,000 people in attendance.
You must be 21 years of age or older to attend. See the website for dress code requirements.
2. Freakling Bros. Trilogy of Terror
Immerse yourself in the terrifying interactive shows and haunted houses of the Freakling Bros. Trilogy of Terror. Join a coven in Coven of 13, brave the only R-rated haunted house in the state in Gates of Hell, or explore Castle Vampyre.
Be warned: Some of the houses are so scary they are 17+ (or 13+ with parental supervision required) and require you to sign a waiver and learn a safe word.
3. Official Saw Escape Room & Escape Blair Witch
Enter the world of not one but two of your favorite horror movies: “Filled with live actors, immersive sets, and plenty of scares, the Official Saw Escape Room & Escape Blair Witch prides itself on bringing the frights for a full hour of mystery solving.” You can choose to do one or—if you’re feeling brave—both rooms.
