Halloween in Las Vegas at The LINQ Promenade

Grab your little ghosts and ghouls for safe street Triq-or-Treating on The LINQ Promenade Oct. 27 and 28 from 6 to 10 p.m. Children can go to each retail and restaurant location to get treats, plus zombie stilt walkers will roam the promenade handing out candy. There will be free face painting and performances by a zombie LED drumline and family-friendly DJ Miguel at the fountain stage. Kids 12 and under can also ride the High Roller for free.

Restaurants and bars will be featuring Halloween themed drinks. Judging of the costume contest begins at 9 p.m.

THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE IS CENTER STRIP

Zombie Escape at The LINQ Promenade Halloween in Las Vegas

There’s no Rick and team to save you when you enter the Hollywood studio-designed Zombie Escape. Located in the parking lot behind The LINQ Promenade and High Roller observation wheel, guests race through a maze to escape the zombie horde lurking behind every corner. Win and you save humanity, lose and you join the undead.

The Zombie Escape opens at 7 p.m. every Wednesday through Sunday in October, plus Monday, Oct. 31. Prices start at $20 per person. You can also buy an RIP Pass (fast pass) for $28 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.

On Saturday, increase your zombie quotient to epidemic levels when the undead take over the High Roller during the evening rides.

Dance, dance, dance with the undead

There won’t be any opera music playing when the Phantom rises at OMNIA Nightclub in Caesars Palace this Halloween weekend. Instead electronic dance music will reign on the main stage when Calvin Harris performs on Friday Oct. 28 and Martin Garrix takes the booth on Saturday Oct. 29. Halloween night features DJ Dash.

(Oct. 31).

About The Author

I'm one of a rare breed of folks, a native Las Vegan. Being born in Las Vegas has endowed me with crazy Sin City skills - must be all the exposure to neon. I'm a human casino GPS, celebrity locator (You never know who you'll meet in a casino elevator, right Richard Branson?) and insider tip encyclopedia. I learned probability and statistics with casino dice. When I walk through a hotel, tourists think I work there. Maybe it's my smile, my purposeful walk or my friendly answers. Maybe it's just the black suit. But whatever the reason, I get the chance to exercise my Vegas super powers every day. Now if I could just predict when Megabucks would hit...
