Eli Roth’s Goretorium Files for Bankruptcy


goretorium_slaughterLast September Eli Roth opened up his year round haunted attraction on the Las Vegas Strip called The Goretorium. It really sounded like an awesome thing for horror fans to check out when they out to Vegas. They had a bar and even would perform weddings in true Vegas fashion. Unfortunately though, it seems as though that ride is coming to an end.

According to the Las Vegas Sun Haunted Desert LLC, which owns the year-round haunted house on the Strip, filed for Chapter 11 reorganization in Las Vegas, listing assets between $1 million to $10 million against liabilities of that same range. Under Chapter 11, companies continue operating while developing a plan of reorganization for creditors to approve or deny.

In the filing they do not give a reason, but it could be assumed that a haunted house that is open all year long is not always a good idea. Horror fans would surely enjoy it, but the general public seems to be only interested in these things around October. As soon as we know what will eventually happen with the Goretorium we will let you know.

        Doesn’t surprise me… Everything Eli is involved with lately seems to crumble

        I was there a year ago and was psyched for it but if I recall it was like $40 to get in and from a few hotel folks I talked to they said it was definitely not worth it. Needless to say I didn’t bother going.

        Going to Vegas on Aug 5th, was hoping to stop by and visit this attraction. However 40 $ seems expensive so I’ll check various sites for discounts. I’m guessing their first year was also hard as they didn’t have anything to complement it such has their lounge that opened a few months back. Hope this gets resolved & I’m able to visit it!!

        Was there for my birthday in July and went. It’s pricey (most things are in Vegas) and honestly, wasn’t worth the cost. At $20/25 it would have been a blast, but for $40, I was a little let down. It was fun and cool, but it was pretty dead (no pun) there. Had a drink at the bar after and me and my friend were the only ones that did. Everyone else came out (it exits into the bar) and left looking let down. Great idea, but 365 is too much. I heard they were doing renos to keep it going, but I guess not. Sad.
        At least Evil Dead The Musical is still going strong, and 10,000% worth the money. If you’re in Vegas, SEE IT!!
