Legendary Las Vegas haunted attraction Fright Dome celebrates its 15th anniversary
Created from the mind of hauntrepreneur Jason Egan, Fright Dome at Circus Circus Las Vegas has been horrifying the masses since 2003.
Beginning Friday, Sept. 29, Fright Dome will take over all five acres of The Adventuredome theme park at Circus Circus Las Vegas, transforming it into an immersive and terrifying attraction featuring six haunted houses, multiple scare zones, thrill rides in the dark and more.
“What an honor it has been for Fright Dome to call Las Vegas home for 15 years,” said Jason Egan, owner and creator of Fright Dome. “What started as a local event has grown into something that attracts visitors from all over the world”.
New for this season, Egan is treating fans to the largest haunted house in the event’s tenure, appropriately named Zombie City. In 2012, Fright Dome celebrated it’s 10th anniversary by teaming up with beloved zombie mastermind, the late George A. Romero, and now just a mere five years later, Egan and his team will honor the teachings of their idol with more than 15,000 square feet of zombie metropolis. Guests will be hunted as they make their way through the virus-filled city of the dead.
Known for its dark-twist on Christmas and all things Krampus-lore in years past, the 2017 season also will see Fright Dome take on a variety of festive holidays in its innovative new Happy Hell-idays house.The darker side of notable dates such as Valentine’s Day and St Patrick’s Day will be explored in this creepy new world.
Equally as exciting, and available exclusively to guests upgrading to Fast Pass or a VIP tour this season, is the new isolation-style haunted house Lights Out. Upon entering the attraction, guests will immediately be divided from their group and be handed an old flashlight to aid them as they wander through the darkness alone. Separated from everything and everyone, guests will have to rely on their flashlight to illuminate the dreadful inhabitants lurking around every corner.
Making a return this year are fan-favorite houses Chainsaw Massacre and Killer Clowns in 4D. Lastly, another original creation from Egan’s all-star team, HEX, will make its debut for the 2017 event.
In addition to the aforementioned, Fright Dome guests can experience all of the thrill rides and games that the Adventuredome theme park has to offer in the darkness and fog, including two roller coasters.
Fright Dome is open select nights from 7pm to midnight Sept. 29 – Oct. 31. General admission tickets are $37.95, with additional fastpass+ upgrades starting at $20 allowing express line entry for all six haunted houses. Updates on Fright Dome are available online.
