Another Halloween season has descended upon Las Vegas. If there’s one place that I always HAVE to go. it’s Freakling Bros. The Trilogy of Terror. They are back again with their haunted houses Gates of Hell, Castle Vampyre, and Coven of 13.
All the haunted houses are pretty cool, but my favorite one has to be Gates of Hell. I always do it first. Yeah, I’m one of those kinds of people. Why is it my favorite one you ask? Well, first off, in order to even go in, you have to sign a waiver. Why? Because the monsters can touch you. If you’re bothered by that, you may not want to do Gates of Hell, and just stick with the other two. But, if you’re interested in a more “interactive” experience when you visit a haunted house, go get in line and sign that waiver.
Each haunted house has its own unique thing about it. Not just because they are themed differently, around the devil, vampires, or witches. It’s that they each have a special thing that goes on in each of them that you don’t find in other haunted houses. I think that’s where the Freakling Bros. hit it out of the park each year.
You might just find yourself asking the following:
Did my friend just disappear?
Why am I on my hands and knees?
Am I getting shocked?
Do all three of those things actually happen? YES! It all depends on which haunted house you go into. Guess you’ll have to try all three to find out what happens in each one. Muaahahahaha
I look forward to going back again next year. Who wants to go with me and be the Freakling Bros. next victim? Happy Halloween Everyone!
