The Hotel Fear and the Asylum is one of the scariest haunted houses in Las Vegas.

Hotel Fear

Award-winning Independent filmmaker Joe Luan actually used the ASYLUM & HOTEL FEAR as the sets and location of his latest thriller RUST. As Joe stated,” The scenes and props in these haunted houses are Hollywood quality. I couldn’t have created better sets myself!” Joe wrote the script to take advantage of the haunts. “The haunts are almost a character in my film!”

Admission is $15 for Hotel Fear and $15 for the Asylum. Both tickets can be purchased for $25, that will get you into both Haunted Houses.

They are open Thursdays through Sundays from October 4th, 2018 to October 21, 2018 and every day from October 25 through the 31st.  The Hotel Fear and the Asylum is located in the parking lot of the Meadows Mall at 4300 Meadows Lane Las Vegas, NV 89107
