Travel Weekly's Las Vegas E-letter: Sept. 18, 2007

DEMONS, MONSTERS AND GOBLINS are taking over the five-acre Adventuredome at Circus Circus from Oct. 5 to 31 and turning it into Fright Dome, the largest Halloween event in Nevada. Fright Dome will become an eerie, fog-shrouded landscape with more than 25 rides and attractions, including five haunted houses, haunted rides, four "scare zones" and more than 100 strolling "scare" actors. This year, watch out for additions like the "Drop Demons," creatures that drop down from the dome to frighten the unsuspecting. "Circus Circus has given us the go ahead to make it as scary as we absolutely can," says Fright Dome owner and operator Jason Egan. For more information, call (702) 794-3939 or visit

LONGTIME TELEVISION GAMESHOW HOSTS Bob Eubanks, Chuck Woolery and Jamie Farr come together starting Oct. 8 to bring the "$250,000 Ultimate Game Show" to the stage at the Las Vegas Hilton. The show promises more winners on stage (more than 50 per show, at nine shows per week) and to give away more money and prizes than any other live game show in recent history -- it plans to award more than $50,000 each week in cash and prizes. During each show, one contestant will have the opportunity to win $250,000; if they win, every audience member in the theater will take home $100. Eubanks, Woolery and Farr will take turns hosting.

BOASTING SOME OF THE BEST MEXICAN CUISINE on the Las Vegas Strip, the new Diablo's Cantina at the Monte Carlo Resort & Casino promises a "Spring Break-like party atmosphere year-round" and a menu that's a cross between "south-of-the-border" favorites and "traditional American classics." Signature dishes include Spiced Skirt Steak Nachos, Three Layer Club Quesadilla, Diablo Death Wings and, for dessert, Build Your Own Cupcake Tops. The bar menu includes specialty cocktails and more than 75 different types of tequila served by roaming "tequila vixens."

THE CITY OF LAS VEGAS recently unveiled the new $5.5 million Fremont East entertainment district. Designed to revitalize the downtown area, the three-block district adjacent to the Fremont Street Experience includes 40-foot-tall retro Las Vegas neon signs and classic cocktail bars. The project was begun in late January and took seven months to complete.
