The Trilogy of Terror is open from 7 p.m. to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays and from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday – Thursday. Dates of operation will be Sept. 28 – 30, Oct. 5 – 7 and Oct. 12 – 31.

Originally started in his home in 1976 by Duke Mollner, the experience grew over the years with the Mollner family making it the coolest haunted house in Las Vegas. In 2011, as innovators in haunted attractions, Duke and son JT Mollner introduced the first-ever R-rated attraction in “Gates of Hell” to the haunted experiences at The Trilogy of Terror.

Despite being worried about the risk and potential controversy, it became a massive success. Offering a high-octane alternative to other family-friendly haunts in Las Vegas, the “Gates of Hell” is available for guests 17 years or older and requires a waiver to enter.

“It’s been amazing to see this industry grow from a neighborhood event for kids to a multi-generational, billion dollar industry,” said Duke Mollner. “For us, it has always been about giving the public a show – whether it was from my house in the early days or our first stand-alone attraction.”

Earning top honors from website The Scare Zone (, the three Freakling Bros. haunts at The Trilogy of Terror were called the three craziest and scariest haunted attractions the site had ever experienced and, for the first time ever, earned a score of 6 on a scale of 0 – 5. The Trilogy of Terror was also named #1 in the Western United States.

Tickets are $12 for “Circus of Horrors” and “Castle Vampyre” and $14 for “Gates of Hell.” Line-pass t-shirts are available for $10 and are valid all month. Discounts are available for combining houses and multiple visits, including the $29 “Freak Pass” for all three haunts and the $35 “All You Can Scream” pass. Fans of terror must be 17 years of age or accompanied by an adult and must sign a consent form to enter “Gates of Hell.”
