When the moon gets low, and the darkness descends, you may find yourself looking for a haunted house in Las Vegas, Nevada. There are several spooky sites to explore, and the De Castroverde team invites you to explore these best-haunted houses of Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Haunts

For a dose of chilling fear, visit Las Vegas Haunts . This haunting attraction has the haunted Hotel Fear, with scary residents to give you a proper fright. The Asylum is a creepy mental hospital that’s gone into disuse with only the most terrifying of patients and doctors left. You can visit one or both when Las Vegas Haunts opens in October. Find Las Vegas Haunts at 4300 Meadows Lane, at Meadows Mall. Hours vary, so check out the website before heading over.

Freakling Brothers

For the attraction voted #1 scariest by U.S.A. Today, go to one of the Freakling Bros Horror Shows . You can explore Castle Vampyre, the Coven of 13, and the Gates of Hell, Nevada’s only R-rated haunted house. You’ll know genuine fear at Castle Vampyre as you face Dracula and Nosferatu. The Coven of 13 is staffed by scary witches, warlocks, and all sorts of purveyors of black magic. The Gates of Hell is a sensory overload experience of pure terror. It’s sure to be a terrifying time, as they invite you to join them. Freakling Brothers is located at 6555 S. Riley Street and is open every October, with hours available on their website.

31 Freak Street

Do you dare to face places of a past tragedy that are now haunted or the grave dangers of a derelict asylum? If so, make your way to 31 Freak Street . There are two attractions at 31 Freak Street for you to enjoy. The Crimson Manor was once a busy, populated estate that many people made their home, but now it’s only home to the spirits of victims that befell unspeakable harm on the property. In another part of 31 Freak Street, Mayhem, the asylum is a haunt filled with terrifying psychos. Face your fears at 1300 W. Sunset Road Henderson, open for the season every October.
