Apocalypse Vegas Presents “Dead City Vegas” – The Only Interactive Haunted House Where You Can Fight Back






Tickets now on sale for the exclusive haunted house that will debut Oct. 4 with dates throughout the month: www.apocalypsevegas.com/dead-city-vegas



This October, special ops attraction Apocalypse Vegas will debut their interactive Halloween haunted experience “Dead City Vegas” four nights a week offering guests 20 minutes of adrenaline packed adventure as the only haunted house in Las Vegas where you can fight back. The attraction is sure to frighten any willing to enter.


“We wanted to give Vegas a Halloween experience unlike any other,” said Travis Krauss, owner and creator of Dead City Vegas, as well as Apocalypse Vegas. “This is not your average haunted house. Our guests will actually have the opportunity to find weapons and fight back against the zombies, rather than just walking through, making the experience truly interactive as the guests themselves become part of the scene and part of the story.”


The 38,000 square-foot indoor maze will take guests through an up-close and personal terror in a dark and ominous apocalyptic scene. Skilled special ops personnel will guide thrill-seekers through 13 haunted houses featuring a gauntlet of sound effects and spooky deserted neighborhoods. Guests will dodge live zombies wreaking havoc, look for weapons and fight back with those weapons as they work their way through the haunted houses and streets filled with the undead.


Dead City Vegas will debut to the public on Oct. 4 and run through Oct. 28. The attraction will operate every Thursday and Sunday evening from 7 to 10 p.m. and every Friday and Saturday evening from 7 p.m. to midnight.


General admission is priced at $29.99 per person and includes entrance into the haunted experience. VIP admission must be booked with a minimum of six people and maximum of ten people and is priced at $39.99 per person and includes fast pass entry into the haunted house and a digital group photo. Taxes and fees are applicable. Guests will be required to fill out a waiver before entering Dead City Vegas.

About Apocalypse Vegas
With the survival of humankind on the line, how brave will you be? That’s the question posed at Apocalypse Vegas, the Special Ops Experience, where an apocalyptic combat situation tests your mettle and your aim. Upon arriving at the 38,000-square-foot indoor facility, you’ll suit up in tactical gear and receive training on basic tactical concepts. A former military special operator then leads you into a dystopian zombie-filled world that feels realistic down to the sights, sounds, smells, and other effects. Your job? Survive through the chaos from behind the trigger of an airsoft gun and complete sub tasks, such as intelligence gathering and hostage rescues. All these extras make the mission even more realistic, as zombies lie in wait ready to attack anyone who lets their guard down or tried to have a nice conversation.
