    Hello all,

    Long time lurker and Vegas fan, but first time poster. I will be going to Vegas in early October for some preseason hockey action at the new T-Mobile Arena. I'm taking my partner with me and it will be her first time in Vegas. We'll stay one night on the strip to give her the idea of the place and then head downtown for the rest of the trip like the low rollers we are. My partner is a huge, huge, huge Halloween fan. Anything and everything involving Halloween is her favorite thing ever. My question to you all more experienced Vegas lovers is: is there any cool Halloween-themed stuff to see or do early on in the month of October? I figured they would mostly be closer to the actual Halloween date but I figured I would ask as she would be ecstatic. Thanks !

    Vegas does very little for Halloween. They do decorate in Fall colors around the town but very little Halloween specific stuff. On the weekend of Halloween you can see a lot more characters dressed up Downtown but the casinos themselves do very little.

    I second the above post. Go downtown and see Frank and the Steins. They are dressed as Halloween monsters, and play great music too. We've gone out for several years to see them. Free show, two or three times a night (I think they're off Tuesdays). Monster Mash, Time Warp, and other Halloween favorites. Great times.

    I have not been, but I've read mostly negative critiques of Frightdome. Too expense, too busy, you'll never see all the haunted mazes without upgrading to VIP, too overrun with youngsters.

    From experience I would recommend either Freakling Bros. Trilogy of Terror or Las Vegas Haunts. You'll need a rental vehicle or Uber to get to and from, but they're good. Freakling Bros. is definitely more intense, but both put on a good show.

    Well, on the Strip, not much. I have done the frightdome twice in the past and it is ok. For the Strip, its really about it. There used to be a year round haunted house next to the Twin Peaks at Harmon Corner, but it is gone

    Found this on the ACG site today, sounds like a "blast":

    Fremont Street Experience: “999Dead” – Zombie Apocalypse Shooting Gallery. Guests can partake nightly in an interactive undead experience not for the faint of heart, testing their skills required to survive a zombie infestation, located at the 3rd Street North intersection. Every shooter receives a prize. The Zombie Shooting Gallery will be open daily at 11 a.m. until long after the strike of midnight, now through Nov 1. Cost is $8 per game.

    The Linq street is decorated with all sorts of monsters, goblins, and zombies. From the strip back to the high roller. Pretty cool. Just saw it today so they might expand it. Or might not.

    Not the strip, but Gold Spike is having 6 nights of fright for Halloween.
