If you'd like to get a little taste of what went on during the grand opening of Eli Roth's Goretorium, we have photos and a video from the launch party:
LAS VEGAS– 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.

ABOUT ELI ROTH’S GORETORIUM: The multi-level maze of frights is the brainchild of director/actor Eli Roth, best known as the creator of the “Hostel” and “Cabin Fever” franchises, and for his role in front of the camera as Donny "The Bear Jew" Donowitz in Quentin Tarantino's “Inglourious Basterds” for which he won SAG Best Ensemble and BFCA Critic's Choice Award for Best Acting Ensemble. Eli Roth’s GORETORIUM immerses visitors into the tale of Sin City’s most deadly mythical hotel and casino, The Delmont. The self-guided horror experience begins in the lobby of the Delmont and unveils gruesome and ghastly sights of past hotel guest victims and the serial-killing family behind the deeds at every turn. Employing high-tech Vegas showmanship with old-fashioned scares, the terrifying labyrinth of live actors, animatronic frights and stunning special effects is contained in a vintage hotel setting that rivals Hollywood’s best movie sets.
Eli Roth’s GORETORIUM also includes a freaky, 60’s inspired lounge called “Baby Dolls.” Featuring a magnificent view of the Las Vegas Strip, the bar will entertain guests with caged zombie dancers and live “feedings.” GORETORIUM also features a one-of-a-kind horror retail shop and a to-go bar called “Bloody Mary’s,” specializing in gruesomely themed cocktails.
