Good morning lovelies!
How is everybody’s October going so far? Hopefully it is as exciting and incredible as mine! October is seriously one of the best months of the year. There is so much to do! Then, after an entire month of awesome-ness, you get to celebrate the most fun-filled holiday of the year!
I started this spooky season out right, and attended The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Regency Tropicana Theaters. This event happens the first Saturday of every month, but the October showing is especially worthwhile. Everyone dresses up in their Halloween costumes or as one of the characters. Then a contest proceeds, of course! The entire evening is loud, raunchy, and fun. I believe everyone should experience the live show at least once!
Looking for something a little more outdoorsy? Then you should try Gilcrease Orchard! Yes, an actual orchard in Las Vegas. Weird, right? There are sixty acres of fruit and veggies for you to choose from! You pick and pay as you go, and let me tell you it’s TOTALLY worth it! Right now, there are sweet potatoes, zucchini, apples, squash, radishes, eggplants, okra, and cucumbers just waiting to be picked! Plus, the pumpkin patch just opened up. Who doesn’t love those?
Calling all zombie lovers. Hi Scores Bar-Arcade in Henderson is the place to be! Every Sunday they (along with the fabulous L33t Ladies) host The Walking Dead viewing party! There is a zombie costume contest, a trivia competition, a drinking game, and a raffle! The cast of Evil Dead the Musical 4D was there for the premiere this past Sunday. After the showing, a Left 4 Dead 2 and Resident Evil 6 tournament takes place. It was a blast! I can hardly wait for next week!
If you are in Las Vegas anytime during October, then there is one place that you MUST go to get your scare on. Fright Dome at Circus Circus. It is ranked one of the top 5 scariest haunted attractions in the nation! Basically, they turn the Adventure Dome into one giant haunted house, and trust me it is SCARY. I have yet to go this year, but it’s definitely on my list! The entire dome is blacked out, and then filled with fog, strobe lights, eerie sound effects, and lasers. There are a total of five haunted houses, four ‘scare zones’, and ten rides to choose from. Plus, there are random scare actors roaming around to scare you when you least expect it. Yeah, once you’re in, there is no escape! Grab your group of friends (trust me, you will want as many people as possible to cling to) and head down there….if you dare.
Another spooky treat at Circus Circus is the 13th Floor Experience. You board a haunted elevator that takes you to the 13th floor of the hotel, where you are taken on a guided tour through 13 different rooms. Each room has a different story, and a different scare tactic. It is nowhere near as intense as the Fright Dome, but it’s still a good time!
This month is already flying by, so take some time and try to enjoy it!
