If you love gore and wished that Halloween was more than once a year, then you’re in for a gruesome treat.
Opening to the public on Sept. 27, Eli Roth’s Goretorium will be located on the Las Vegas Strip, directly across CityCenter and The Cosmopolitan above the Walgreen’s. Since this attraction is open year-round, it’s like having the spirit of Halloween every day. You don’t have to wait until October for a good scare.
“The Goretorium will be a destination for both horror fans and tourists from around the world,” said Eli Roth, the creator of “Hostel” and “Cabin Fever” franchises. “We are creating the most intense live terror experience a person can have, incorporating the latest technology with old-fashioned scares.”
The Goretorium features a multi-level maze within a fictitious hotel and casino — The Delmont. The self-guided tour starts at the hotel lobby, revealing gruesome sights of past hotel guests and the serial-killing family behind these murders. The experience includes live actors, animatronic frights and special effects in a spooky hotel setting.
Eli Roth’s Goretorium will also feature a ’60s-inspired lounge, “Baby Dolls.” Offering a view of CityCenter, the bar includes caged “zombie” dancers and “live feedings.” If you want to take the experience home with you, the Goretorium will also have a retail shop as well as Bloody Mary’s, a to-go bar.
In addition to Roth’s “Hostel” and “Cabin Fever” franchises, you might remember Roth for his role as Donny “The Bear Jew” Donowitz in Quentin Tarantino’s film, “Inglourious Basterds.” In addition, Roth’s film label, “Eli Roth Presents” produced the successful hit, “The Last Exorcism.” Roth has an impressive background in Hollywood and gore, so expectactions for the Goretorium are high.
“I’ve spent years planning this and all my nightmares are finally coming true,” Roth said.
Tickets are $35 in advance or $40 at the door. For $60, visitors can purchase a VIP Fast Pass which includes front-of-the-line admission and free entrance to Baby Dolls Lounge.
