Fright Dome at Circus Circus Las Vegas

Fright Dome

Fright Dome occurs every year during the Halloween season at Adventuredome inside Circus Circus Resort Las Vegas. The all ages event is a favorite among visitors but can be a bit on the scary side for younger visitors. This is a Las Vegas version of a Halloween haunted house set in a theme park so expect elaborate costumes mixed in with some sexiness. I would not suggest it for my own children below 14 but all kids are different.

What To Expect at Fright Dome Las Vegas:

Haunted Houses are key to the experience as these themed mazes of fright will construct a fear in your imagination that augments your reality in a bad way. Clowns should not freak you out by they do and great makeup and props will somehow convince you to scream. You pass through some fright zones where the object is to startle you and there will be a few live performances of the macabre. Most of the rides are functioning so you also get a theme park experience and great views of the horror from high above while on the rollercoaster.

A good tip is to consider a front of the line pass or a VIP pass as the lines get long . Early in October the crowds are thinner but closer to Halloween you will feel a bit cramped. 

This year Fright Dome will scare you with themes from Horror Film Producer George Romero who is best known for his films such as Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, etc..You should find a number of zombie themed haunted houses at Fright Dome as well as roaming zombies in the entire attraction and some extreme scare zones. You'll be exposed to high powered strobes, fog-filled rooms as well as all the attractions and rides.

Yes, I know it's fake but it creeps me out just thinking about some of the disturbing images that make Fright Dome one of the top five scariest haunted attractions in the country. It is a night of fun and bewilderment.

A few highlights of this years Fright Dome:
Fright Dome will feature four additional all-new haunted houses including “The Infected,” a zombie quarantine area; “Camp Massacre,” a twisted, chainsaw-ridden summer camp; “Fright Dome’s Urban Legends,” playing on classic fears; and the “The Anniversary” which will combine fan favorites from over the past 10 years of terror at the event.
