Goretorium Skips Out On A Valentine, Vampire Weddings Still Ok

February 6, 2013 at 5:35 PM | by | ()

Missing from our list of 61 things to do this Valentine's Day, is number 62. Valentine's Day at Goretorium. Which is odd as creator Eli Roth told us himself it would be an important re-branding touchstone for the Strip's only horror-haunt attraction. Their last seasonal re-vamp was their Christmas theme built around an Evil Santa.

But, we've received no notice of any special V-Day events. Instead, they are pushing their year-round opportunity to get married in a zombie wedding. Or twisted fantasy of your choice. A handful of former matrimonial ceremonies are available for viewing on YouTube. So, if this video gets you in the mood, packages start at $666. You can even choose between a "scary" or "vampire" minister. All sorts of add-ons can also be added on. Including a symbolic bloodletting ceremony. If you go ahead with that on the 14th, do send us pictures.

The reason Goretorium popped into our minds was a recent Living Social discount coupon email offering us $17 tickets to tour the attraction. That's half-off. Whenever we see these dramatic local deals it's often an indication there's a serious problem with ticket sales. Nobody creates a 50%-off deal just to generate goodwill. So, if you've been on the fence about walking through the scares, now is a very nice time to see something very scary. Who knows if they'll make it to Valentine's Day 2014.

In trouble?

I have been wondering the same thing.  Groupon also has an offer for $17 with a limit of 25 tickets for purchase, good for 6 months.  And I bought one last month at the same price for my first visit.  It's worth noting that I was absolutely the only customer in line for the attraction, yet there had to have been more than a dozen actors performing in it.  As well-done as it was, that's not a good sign.

Crazy Discounting

Yes, I've been noticing offers all over the place, too. I think that they will make it, just barely, to the scare season again, but I have my doubts that they will stay open beyond another Halloween.
