If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of events and activities to choose from, you’re not alone. 

Many residents find themselves in a dilemma, wanting to make the most of the season but unsure where to start. 

Allow our guide – offering a curated list of the top Halloween happenings in the city – to help you plan…

Las Vegas Haunts

For a quarter of a century, Las Vegas Haunts has been the epicenter of spine-chilling experiences in the city. 

Recognized nationally, these haunted attractions stand out not just for their scares but for their interconnected storylines. 

It’s no wonder that their intricate details have caught the eye of filmmakers, leading to them being used as sets for movies and videos. 

With constant upgrades every year, there’s always something new to discover. Last year saw the unveiling of a revamped Asylum, and this year, Hotel Fear has upped the ante with fresh rooms, scares, and effects. 

Situated conveniently in the Meadows Mall, it’s a must-visit this Halloween season.


The Asylum, originally known as The Meadview Health Sanctuary, was once a beacon of health in the early 1900s. 

However, after Dr. Vander and his family tragically met their end at the hands of a resident, the facility fell into disrepair. 

Dr. Vander’s nephew Roland later reopened it with the backing of a mysterious government agency. 

While it now operates under the pretense of a mental health facility, rumors of unorthodox experiments and activities persist. 

Visitors are welcome, but beware of unexpected electrical issues – and hope that everything remains contained.

Hotel Fear

Jonathon Feoray, with his European innkeeping experience, saw an opportunity in the town’s proximity to the Meadview Asylum and established a hotel. 

The Feoray and Vander (yes, the Vanders of the Asylum) families became intertwined, both in business and tragedy. 

After being declared “cured” by Dr. Adrian Vander, Mortimer Feoray returned to the hotel, only to commit a horrifying massacre. 

Now, with the Asylum’s resurgence under a shadowy agency, the hotel thrives on its visitors, but the haunting memories of the past linger, giving it the chilling name – Hotel Fear.
