Eli Roth's Goretorium - Special Moments from the Opening Event!
Yesterday marked the official opening of Eli Roth's year-round Las Vegas haunt, The Goretorium, and there are dozens of pictures from the event and more all over the Internet. Sadly, we couldn't make it, but we have a look at some of the fun for you!
Roth is set to redefine the haunt industry with the opening of his Goretorium in Sin City, which promises to be one of the scariest haunt experiences ever and will also feature a 60's inspired lounge complete with caged zombie go-go girls, another horror-themed bar, a kick-ass gift shop, and a wedding chapel for all you ghouls out there who are looking to infuse your upcoming nuptials with a little horror flavor.
From the Press Release
It is slaughter on The Strip as Eli Roth’s GORETORIUM, the first year-round haunted experience to hit Las Vegas dares brave souls to enter its doors. An experience unlike any other, the 15,000-square-foot Goretorium, packed with state-of-the-art scares, bone-chilling special effects and a cast of hauntingly horrifying characters is now open 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,” says 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.”
Best known for creating the gruesome “Hostel” franchise, actor/director Eli Roth has coupled the latest technology with old-fashioned scares to bring his darkest nightmare to life as he invites hapless visitors to step inside the urban legend of the mythical Delmont Hotel. Guests start their frightening 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.
“We’ve been working for years to ensure that Goretorium will be the most terrifying, detailed haunt imaginable.” said Robert Frey, CEO of Goretorium. “Between special effects, the set and the live cast you’ll be able to go through a number of times and have completely unique and horrifying experiences.”
Goretorium also features an interactive webpage with a live-stream webcam inside the haunt allowing horror fans worldwide to see what happens to anyone who thinks they can make it through unscarred.
Conveniently located on The Strip across from The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the terrifying $10 million haunt is home to “Baby Dolls” a ‘60s themed outdoor lounge featuring a magnificent 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.
Goretorium is the perfect spot for edgy special events. In addition to private parties, especially brave couples can tie the knot inside the haunt’s working wedding chapel. Couples can choose their themed wedding package that includes special officiates such as a Zombie Slaying Minister, God of Gore Minister and Vampire Minister. Gore-wedding packages start at $1,000, with an array of gruesome add-ons to create an authentically disgusting memory for an additional cost.
Eli Roth’s GORETORIUM will be open seven days a week: Monday – Friday from 2 p.m. – 2 a.m. and Friday – Sunday from 2 p.m. – 4 a.m. Tickets are $40 for general admission; $35 for advanced online. A Death Row VIP package is available for $60 which includes a complimentary line pass, express private elevator entrance to the haunt and complementary entrance to “Baby Dolls” Lounge.
