Las Vegas Haunts

The scary story goes that an escaped mental patient bloodied up the Hotel Feoray with a murderous rampage. Some people don’t have any class. Thrill seekers can tour both the Asylum and Hotel Fear at the Texas Station Hotel and Casino during the month of October.

Terror Behind the Walls

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

During the 1800s, Philadelphia’s Eastern State Penitentiary was the last place on earth its prisoners – like Al Capone – wanted to be.

While Terror Behind the Walls is a seasonal event, tours of the prison are offered year-round.
