The Details

Eli Roth, the creator the “Hostel” move franchise, has just opened Goretorium, the first year-round haunted experience to hit Las Vegas. The 15,000-square-foot Goretorium is packed with state-of-the-art scares, bone-chilling special effects and a cast of hauntingly horrifying characters in the heart of Sin City.

"I can honestly say that with Goretorium, we have created the most intense live terror experience a person can have," said Roth. "This is really my nightmare brought terrifyingly to life. No matter which haunted houses you've been through, you have never been through anything quite like the Goretorium."

Roth has coupled the latest technology with old-fashioned scares to bring his nightmare to life as he invites hapless visitors to step inside the urban legend of the mythical Delmont Hotel. Guests start their journey inside the lobby and make their way through the "abandoned" resort where, according to legend, a serial-killing family preys upon every person who dares to enter.

Conveniently located on The Strip across from The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the $10 million haunt is home to Baby Dolls, a 1960’s themed outdoor lounge featuring a view of the Las Vegas Strip and complete with nightly zombie feedings as well as a one-of-a-kind horror retail shop with abandoned body parts as keepsakes to take home — if you make it out, of course.

The Goretorium can also be booked for special events — brave couples can even plan to tie the knot inside the haunt’s working wedding chapel.
