Eli Roth, the creative mind behind horror films “Hostel” and “Cabin Fever,” opened a haunted hotel and casino in Vegas late last month. The Goretorium is the first year-round horror attraction in the city and features a free-form floor plan, meaning guests can choose their own path.
Located on the Strip, the Goretorium’s fictional backstory goes like this: a family of cannibalistic serial killers own and operate a run-down hotel, named the Delmont, from which they select their victims.
Visitors to the Goretorium enter through the hotel’s lobby and begin a self-guided tour through the hotel, witnessing gruesome sights of past guests, mirrors that drip blood, and a human meat grinder. For those who can’t handle the horror, there will be opportunities to exit the experience before reaching the end.
Goretorium will also feature a 60s-inspired lounge, called Baby Dolls, with views of City Center, and, oh yeah, caged zombie dancers and live feedings. And in true Vegas style, there will also be a wedding chapel offering three unique packages — Til Death Do We Part Zombie Package, Bloody Love Gore Package, and the Immortal Love Vampire Package — that all run $1,000.
Tickets are available online ($35) and at the door ($40). Can’t make it to Vegas? Goretorium features a live webcam for those looking for a vicarious scare.
