Freakling Bros.’ Trilogy of Terror
2321 North Rainbow Boulevard
Las Vegas, NV
A pedophile priest has asked me to sign a waiver and a
fire-breathing clown has bitten my ear. ‘S’ & I are waiting to enter “Gates
of Hell,” the R-rated Freakling Bros. attraction and we can already tell that
this is going to be one hell of a good time.
Freakling Bros.’ Trilogy of Terror looks like a small carnival
in a shopping center parking lot. You’d never guess that a semi-circle of
trailer haunts would house such brilliant and horrifying immersive theatre. “Circus
of Horrors” and “Castle Vampyre” are thematically detailed, interactive and full
of creative startle scares. They are excellent one-of-a kind haunted houses,
but the R-rated “Gates of Hell” is where Freakling Bros. really shows off. The
excess and shock value of Vegas is channeled into an extreme haunt that can not
only touch you, but lift you right off your feet. “Gates of Hell” utilizes
intense physical contact, professional wrestlers and the legal amount of
electricity that can be used for entertainment purposes. It is deliciously
intense and well worth a trip across the country.
Is It Scary?
According to their Official Facebook Page: “We have the most
intense haunts in town!”
The Raven & Black Cat says: Freakling Bros. Trilogy of
Terror is the most intense and terrifying haunt in Las Vegas.
What We Loved
Freakling Bros. has mastered the art of theatrical illusion
and they pair it with over the top interactive concepts that are terrifying and
fun all at once. We loved struggling to escape the room filled with large
rubber balls, surviving the firing squad, and swinging on a rope over a very convincing
bottomless pit. The detail is impeccable. Each room contains an unsuspecting
surprise and they take great care to make you feel very safe right before they
pull the rug out from under you. Inside “Gates of Hell,” I watched a
camouflaged attacker appear out of nowhere, grab ‘S’ by the foot, then knock
her down and drag her away down a long hallway. Easily one of the most frightening
visuals I have ever experienced inside a haunted house.
What Could be Better
When we visited there was a flirty (ear biting)
fire-breathing clown entertaining guests waiting in line. (Scorch The Clown) The spacing in between
groups is near perfection, but it means that lines can be a bit lengthy. A
timed ticketing system would cut wait time significantly and open up potential for
additional entertainment like creepy games and performances.
Freakling Bros. has been terrifying Las Vegas for more than
30 years. The ‘Trilogy of Terror’ is a must-see for horror enthusiasts, adrenaline
junkies, and anyone who’s never before been scared by a haunted house.
