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 www.frightdome.com.
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. For more information,
call (702) 732-5755 or visit www.lvhilton.com.
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.
