Trust Goretorium to do something different for Valentine's Day. We recently puzzled over the lack of V Day theming at the year-round horror haunt. Other than the ability to get married by a vampire, or dressed as a zombie. You know, the usual stuff. But, we received word that they will be celebrating today with a couple of additions to the Goretorium experience.
Tonight will be the first night of a new, bi-monthly DJ event called Stereo Love. Held in the Baby Dolls Lounge, the bar with the million dollar view of the Vegas Strip, the twist is all the tune spinners will be female. And, out in force. For tonight's Valentine reveal, DJ Miss Joy, DJ Miyuki, DUWOPRose The Vinylist and DJ Crykit will kick off the series. You still have time to make plans. It runs from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. Tickets are $5 and free for locals. And, they will announce future dates in the series soon.
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.
Just imagine the possibilities for your holiday photo cards. When we spoke with film director and Goretorium mastermind Eli Roth back in August, he promised the year-round haunt at Harmon Corner would conjure up seasonal updates. “Just to keep it fresh,” he said.
Keeping their word, the Santa scares arrived on schedule. From December 14th though the 28th, the thrill attraction's new killer concept revolves around Santa’s evil-twin, Sick Nick. If you've been naughty, Sick Nick will be handing out punishment. And, he has some back-up help from killer elves.

Has it only been five months since we introduced the world to the Goretorium, Eli Roth's year-round haunted attraction? Back in April, a non-Halloween, gothic, gory, horror maze opening above a McDonald's and Walgreens was an unknown quantity. Would anyone care, regardless of the credentials of the creators?
Well, opening night was a bit of mob scene. The line of rabid fans snaked around the building. And, the invited guests crushed into the space. We survived the melee and we survived our walk through the Vegas-themed maze set in a creepy hotel called the Delmont. It would be unfair to review given the unusual circumstances, but blood and guts are plentiful. We'll say we were surprised by how many human participants are part of the scares. It's all people. Mostly dead and dying people, but mechanical spooks are kept to a minimum.
Guests who want to pledge their undying love to one another will be able to choose from three pre-set wedding packages, all priced at $1,000. The Til Death Do We Zombie package will, obviously, include a zombie minister, music, a witness (if needed), Goretorium bride and groom tees, appropriate makeup for the undead couple, a zombie gown for her (you'll have to give it back), a silk brains bouquet (that, too), a "special haunt surprise" during the ceremony, an 8x10 photo, and more.
If you don't like spoilers and are planning to go into the Goretorium without a clue as to what to expect besides a dreadful good time, look away. Now. Really, just click the back button and pick another story from our front page.
If you're still reading, you've been warned.
Vegas visitors will be f#@ked starting this Thursday when the Goretorium makes its Strip debut and kicks off a non-stop, year-round scarefest. But, before it does, CNN is
ruining it for us all giving us an advance heads up about the frights in store for guests. (Ok, seriously. This is your last chance to hit the previous page button.)

We know you're already making your Halloween list and checking it twice, and you've been using our handy guide to help you make your way through a month of thrills and chills. Here's a quickie update to help you get further in the mood.
First out the gore-gate will be the Goretorium which opens to the general public on the 28th. They recently added a nifty sign to the outside of the Harmon Corner complex and pointed out that you can see saw-blade decorative motifs on the balcony of their Baby Dolls Lounge. Very Martha Stewart.

Looking for a little less gore with your scares this October? We've a ghoulish option at the Stratosphere to share with you. And, another located downtown, that will be anything but bloodless.
In our ongoing cataloging of all things icky, creepy and bumpy in the night, we're gearing up for two months of chills and thrills. We're been chomping at the bit for Goretorium's to open later this month. Circus Circus is close to unleashing Fright Dome upon us and they've just announced that the now and forever Mistress of the Dark, Elvira, will be appearing live in person on their first two nights, September 29th and 30th. (Dead in person may be an option for their other scary participants.) Full details are yet to come.

When most of us head to Vegas, we go anywhere we want and do anything we want. The only thing holding us back being, probably, money. However, what if you're headed to Sin City when you're not a girl, not yet a woman (or, not a boy, not yet a man)? That's the quandary facing VegasChatter reader Veronica M.:
Hiiii! I'm going to Vegas in one month but i'm 18. I would like to know what can i do there to have a really good time at night. Could you help me? Thank you sooo much! xoxo
First, Veronica, we'd be remiss not to point you to transl8it! if you need it.
Now, 18 in Vegas is tough. The fun is soo close but so, so far away. As you've probably guessed, shows will be your friends. Spice it up a little, though, by skipping Tournament of Kings (totes, for babies. What? What about this? Never mind that.) and going for a more, ahem, adult production like Fantasy, Zumanity, or Crazy Horse Paris. All welcome voyeurs 18 and older. Forget about shows like Thunder From Down Under, though. They want ticketholders between the ages of 18 and 20 to come with an "adult." Whatev.

“I want it to be the gold standard. The scariest, top of the line, most intense haunted house in the world.”
Film director Eli Roth is enthusing, tour-guiding and trying not to lean against the wet plaster of his under-construction, sixties-themed Baby Dolls Lounge. The third floor libation room sits on the balcony of the Harmon Corner complex, across the bridge from CityCenter and The Cosmopolitan.
Lounge go-go dancers will be caged, including zombie groovers available for live feedings. This scene will play out as your view includes the Prada and Tom Ford boutiques across the street at Crystals. For Roth, a lounge was a must-have for this horror mini-theme park. Usually, after you wind your way through this kind of scare experience, it's all over. But here, Roth explains, “you can congregate, meet and interact.”

Celebrating its 10th year on The Strip, Fright Dome has announced that zombie "godfather" George A. Romero (think Night of the Living Dead and the other of the Dead flicks) will scare up some unexpected thrills of his own under the bright pink glow of The Adventuredome. (Eli Roth is behind such horror movies as Hostel and Cabin Fever.)
If the kids were excited about scaring up some gore-y new fun on The Strip this year and skipping the fright (dome) of Circus Circus, don't think you'll just be able to drop them off at the (read in your creepiest voice) Goretorium.
No, youngsters will need to be 13 and up to slink into The Strip's De
lmon t Hotel... alone. If they're younger than that, they'll need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. That means the Goretorium's web cam is about to become that much more interesting and could give Jimmy Kimmel a run for his money this Halloween when it comes to freaking out kids.
