LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 08/14/14 -- Fright Dome at Circus Circus, one of the nation's top-ranked haunted attractions, will team up with legendary horror director Tobe Hooper and writer Kim Henkel to feature one of the most terrifying horror films of all time. Beginning Friday, Oct. 3 Fright Dome takes over The Adventuredome at Circus Circus and will theme one of its six haunted houses around the grisly story of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary this Halloween season, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE is a theme that Fright Dome fans have been asking to see come to life for years. The themed haunted house will immerse guests in scenes from the iconic film, leaving them to fend off the attacks of one of the most notorious chainsaw-wielding killers ever created, Leatherface. No corner is safe as guests fight their way through in hopes of escaping the cannibals in pursuit. Will they survive... or become the next sliced and diced item on the dinner menu?
"We are happy to be working with Fright Dome to bring THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE haunted attraction to the fans for the film's 40th anniversary," said writer Kim Henkel.
Utilizing the THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE theme is yet another milestone in Fright Dome's long-standing history of frightening the masses. Over the years, the haunted attraction has worked with many industry greats including George A. Romero and Marcus Dunstan to utilize themes from popular franchises including HALLOWEEN, SAW, MY BLOODY VALENTINE, THE COLLECTOR and more.
"I am thrilled we are able to work with such a renowned brand this year," said Jason Egan, owner and creator of Fright Dome. "Being able to utilize a movie of this magnitude as a partner is quite an honor. For the past 12 years we have been extremely fortunate to work with some of the best in the horror industry, making Fright Dome one of the top haunted attractions in the nation year after year."
Alongside famed Hollywood FX guru Gary J. Tunnicliffe, Egan's team will create spot-on replicas of the props, masks and traps from the big screen inside Fright Dome. Over the years Tunnicliffe has been responsible for the makeup, props and special effects for more than 60 feature films including franchises such as HELLRAISER, HALLOWEEN, CANDYMAN, EXORCIST, BLADE, SCREAM and many more.
In addition to this groundbreaking theme, the sweeping 250,000-square-foot haunted theme park attraction will feature five additional new haunted houses including a solo haunted house, appropriately named "Isolation." Separated from friends and forced to enter alone, guests will forge their way through a labyrinth of industrial corridors filled with traps, crazed inhabitants and those that have ventured in before them but never escaped. Endless passages make each person prey in this shadowy haunted experience.
Dark and fog-filled, Fright Dome creates a chilling atmosphere with roaming characters, high-powered strobes, multi-colored lasers and five acres of horror made up of four all new extreme scare zones, rides, attractions and nightly live stage shows. Egan and his ghoulish cast make their entrance each event night in two fully-restored hearses; a 1968 Cadillac "Executioner" and a monster truck hearse from Discovery Channel's "Ultimate Car Builds."
To add to the excitement and thrill of Fright Dome this year, guests will be able to experience Adventuredome's newest attraction, El Loco, under the darkness of the haunted attraction. El Loco is the only indoor roller coaster of its kind in the United States and the second indoor El Loco coaster in the world. El Loco is an adrenaline-pumping adventure complete with G drops, gravity-defying turns and over-the-edge twists.
To celebrate the anniversary of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, MPI Media will release the original restored film for fans in an all-new 4K Blu-ray DVD featuring a dynamic new 7.1 surround sound mix and never-before-seen outtakes. The DVD will be released on September 16.
Fright Dome is open from 7 p.m. to midnight Oct. 3-31 on select nights. General admission tickets start at $34.95 and fast pass tickets are available for an additional $15 to $20 which allows express line entry for all six haunted houses. For more information, please visit frightdome.com.
