According to the Wall Street Journal, Eli Roth's Goretorium didn't start out as a $10 million project. "I kept adding stuff," he said. Roth's Hostel and Cabin Fever movie franchises, among others, have earned him a spot in the notoriously gruesome "Splat Pack" of filmmakers. He meticulously designed each detail of the fictional Delmont Hotel—a rundown establishment rumored to be run by murderous proprietors—to keep visitors screaming 365 days a year, and he continues to add frightening new elements.
Actor-victims scream as they fall to a giant meat grinder and other atrocities, prompting guests to hasten their self-guided journey through winding, dungeon-like hallways lined with mangled body parts. From the film-worthy costumes and sound effects to the carefully chosen slot machines in the lobby's casino, the site is "a stew of horror tropes mixed with an eye for decade-crossing design," according to CNN. The place, says EW.com, "may just be the kind of gruesome, bloody year-round destination horror fans have been salivating for."
Visitors emerging from their frightful tour stumble toward the outdoor, '60s-themed Baby Dolls Lounge overlooking The Strip. There, they can soothe their nerves with spooky cocktails, be entertained by go-go dancers dressed like zombies, and possibly catch a glimpse of celebrities such as Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber or Marilyn Manson. Hardcore gore enthusiasts even get married on the premises by a vampire or zombie minister, conveniently satisfying the "something borrowed" requirements with a plate of fresh brains.

What sets your business apart from your competition?
We are the evolution of nightclub hopping. The Q Party Shuttle is Vegas' 1st LGBT party bus that shuttles partiers to select nightclubs without the need for a group. We do not put time constraints on our partiers' time like other club crawls. If one club is not to their liking they can re-board the shuttle and hop to the next venue. Our partiers can do this all night. The party bus comes stocked with drinks, party favors, light batons, and premium snacks and we have arranged drink specials at select venues for our riders.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
The LGBT club and bar scene is very active but each venue is a considerable distance from the next. We wanted more convenience, safety, and simplicity for our nights out without losing our buzz and the excitement of the moment. We found that having a party between the parties was the best way to fulfull this need.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are more than a typical party bus. We want to elevate our partiers' nightlife experience in Vegas and very soon we will have special guests from the Vegas social scene on board entertaining riders. We want to be seen as an alternative to drunk / buzzed driving or dealing with the hassle of parking and driving from club to club. In addition to offering this shuttle service on Friday and Saturdays we are also available for charter service to any reveler that wants a party bus pre-decked out in party favors.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
Being the conduit for not only the LGBT nightlife scene to the best spots in Vegas but also a conduit for introducing our future customers to places and people they may have never met otherwise.
It's a beautiful day at the fair: the sun isn't shining, the birds aren't singing, and the clowns are busy terrorizing people. The Sin City Scare Fair puts a twisted take on the trappings of a wholesome 4H-endorsed outing, with new frights lurking around every hay bale. Two linked haunted houses send guests directly from one to the other, beginning with Nightmares—a hall of horrors designed with input from fans. Next, bad childhood birthday parties spring to life in Coulrophobia, an immersive experience that plays off of every sensible person's fear of clowns. In The Last Ride, fairgoers climb into a used coffin that—through musty smells, eerie sounds, and lining made of ectoplasm—recreates what a trip to the grave might be like.
In an event inspired by The Amazing Race, teams of two contestants trek through various locations throughout their city, guided by 10 brainteasing clues that either direct participants to a new locale, or demand chasers perform a creative task. Each chase consists of 10–25 teams, who bolt from their starting location to scour city streets for one to four hours. The first team to dash across the finish line wins a trophy and free entry into a championship version of the Great Chase, whose winner takes home $10,000.
