As lovers of gore and horror, my husband and I expected this new attraction to be cheesy, and it was! This was unexpectedly fun...while walking through Planet Hollywood we saw the entrance to the attraction and decided to be adventurous. If you are into haunted houses, you will not be disappointed, just go in here with an open mind and you will enjoy yourself!!

“So bummed!!!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I am a huge horror fan and love Eli Roth's love of gore, so, I had high hopes for this place. I heard about the opening back a few months ago and made a mental note to not miss it on my next visit to Vegas...which was last week.

We walked over shortly after arriving to our hotel just to check it out and make sure we knew where it was...we wouldn't be coming back for the attraction for a couple of days. I have to say I was a wee bit bummed right from the start. Many of the props in the main area are very generic...the kind of junk anyone can buy online at Halloween. I throw a big Halloween party every year so I know that props are very important to setting the mood. Many of these had seams...someone could have taken a pair of scissors or a blade to them to cut the seam down to make them look more realistic. Also, the Bloody Mary bar was less than impressive...like an after thought. The only thing that kept me excited as I walked around was the mean and vulgar Evil Santa. She was scary in a hysterical, schizo kinda way. We were given 2 $5 off coupons as we walked out.

So, the day comes when I finally get to experience The Goretorium. I am super pumped and slightly terrified. We pay our money...which is expensive, but if you are in Vegas you probably shouldn't be counting your every dollar...and are told to proceed up the stairs. At the top of the stairs there is a rope stopping us from proceeding...we wait...and wait....and wait....and wait. It felt like a good 5 minutes before my husBAND got irritated and walked back down, but as he turned someone came to greet us. Weird start, but whatevs.

I really thought this was going to be like walking through a giant haunted hotel with elaborate sets, etc. An attraction that you could, at times, take your time through to marvel at the fantastic gore. It wasn't. It was several rooms set up with various themes. Rooms that you are rushed through at a ridiculous speed. People are writing that they were in there for 15 minutes...I am positive that I was out in 7 minutes once first greeted at the top of the stairs. Again, the props inside were mostly kinda meh.

However, the actors are amazingly terrifying!!! I wish they had not rushed us through so quickly, but I absolutely loved the interactions with them. They are so mean and twisted and don't hold back with the insults. LOVE IT!!! A gazillion stars for these guys and gals!!!

At the end of the attraction you stumble upon the Baby Doll bar. Eh? It looked like a temporary bar set up in a tiki hut with some fake blood splashed everywhere. We didn't even stop for a drink.

Overall, my impression was that the attraction ran out of money while in the midst of building. I can see where big dreams started, but then in the end it all appeared kind of thrown together. A huge let down for something I expected to be the haunted house to end all haunted houses. The actors are amazing, though...they really get your heart pumping!!!

I would probably advise friends to skip it, but I would probably return if they were to add to the attraction and make it longer and slightly more scary.
