Zombie Reign of Terror Begins at The LINQ Promenade on
Saturday, Oct. 8
Special Events Include 3-Day Halloween Weekend Celebration, Annual “TRIQ
or Treat” Experience for Kids and Costume Contest
Zombies will search for their next victims at The Linq Las Vegas beginning Saturday, Oct. 8 with the launch of The Zombie Escape. This exhilarating, all-new attraction marks the site of a zombie apocalypse, where the fiendish undead revel in horrifying anyone who dares cross their threshold.
The Zombie Escape will loom behind the High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel, located off Koval Lane. Designed by a Hollywood studio, this nightmarish realm compels visitors to battle an infestation of the undead, replete with blood-curdling sights, spine-tingling screams and zombies ready to attack around every corner. Guests who make it through The Zombie Escape save the world; those who fail are doomed to join the horde of the undead. The attraction will be so terrifying, it’ll leave everyone dying for more.
The Zombie Escape will be open Saturday, Oct. 8 and Sunday, Oct. 9, then every Wednesday through Sunday night in October, including Halloween night, Monday, Oct. 31. Doors open at 7 p.m. Prices per person start at $20 for general admission; guests can purchase an RIP Pass (fast pass) for $28 (an $8 upgrade) or the High Roller plus Zombie Escape ticket combo for $45. Locals, military and Total Rewards members receive $5 off the general admission price. Tickets can be purchased at TheLINQ.com or at the Zombie Escape or Center Strip Box Office.
For those who survive, The LINQ Promenade will host the Halloween celebration on Thursday, Oct. 27 and Friday, Oct. 28. Starting at 6 p.m., the festivities will include Halloween-themed décor throughout The LINQ Promenade and the High Roller, live music with family-friendly DJ Miguel, face painters, zombie stilt-walkers and a zombie LED drumline that will perform at the top of every hour. The popular “TRIQ or Treat” experience also returns this year, providing a safe environment for kids as The LINQ Promenade tenants hand out candy to all the little monsters.
In addition, on Saturday, Oct. 29, The LINQ Promenade will host a costume contest with $10,000 in prizes for participants 21 and over. That same evening, there will be live music, a zombie-themed LED drum line and even more zombies wandering throughout the Promenade and taking over the High Roller’s wheelhouse. Casting a spirited glow over the entire spectacle, the High Roller Observation Wheel will be lit in Halloween colors!
