Our friends over at Extended Queue Podcast were able to go behind-the-scenes at Fright Dome at Circus Circus Hotel and Casino. They also got a chance to interview Jason Egan, Head Designer at Fright Dome in Las Vegas, to get some insight on to this year’s event.
“We teamed up with ‘Friday the 13th’ in our thirteenth year because it just made sense,” said Egan. “It’s an amazing experience in the 4D theater. It’s got blood blasts, ankle ticklers and when Jason Voorhees stabs you in the back, you’ll be able to feel it in your seat. Not actually stabbing you, of course, but all kinds of fun stuff.”
All of the haunted houses have been updated for Halloween 2015. The solo maze has been updated this year to make it interactive. The museum-like qualities of the houses in year’s past have been improved greatly. For example, this year you could find yourself locked in a padded room and you’ll be forced to find your way out. Or your quest may be to find a morgue table slab and slide it into the cooler. The unique quality of the improvements is a big step up, as Egan hasn’t heard of another haunted house in the country that’s doing what they are.
“The Slaughter House and The Doll House are both new this year,” continued Egan. “We also had the guys from the hit TV show ‘Monster Makers’ come out and do a scare zone for us this year. I am always guilty of going over budget every year, but I always feel it’s worth it to get a few extra scares in.”
