Established in 1976, Freakling Bros., creators of Las Vegas' premier haunted attractions, unveiled the city’s first free-standing haunted attractions in 1992, later introducing the industry’s first six-trailer, self-contained mobile attraction, paving the way for a new concept in haunted houses that would sweep the country. In 2011, 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. An experiment in serious, uncompromising, interactive horror, Gates of Hell helped The Trilogy of Terror earn top honors from The Scare Zone, earning a score of 6 on a scale of 0 – 5. The Trilogy of Terror was also named #1 in the Western United States. In 2015, Freakling Bros. announced the Circus of Horrors would be retired and replaced by the groundbreaking COVEN of 13, a horrifying journey through witches, warlocks and black magic.

This journey is not for the faint of heart, as each victim will descend through three new, forbidding haunts that wind throughout the darkened town.
With multiple haunted houses and a zombie paintball bus ride, there's plenty to choose from!
