Amazing Johnathan–the internationally-known Las Vegas comic magician–has a stellar reputation for delighting in constructing his artistic renderings of sinister Halloween environments with which to horrify, and outright terrorize, his friends and family. Johnathan has, for the first time ever, decided to bring his renowned creations to life (so to speak) for Las Vegas visitors and/or residents. The SCREAMont Experiment opens to the public on October 6th.
Prior to this year, Johnathan’s event has always been an invitation only experience. Formerly the event took place in a warehouse near McCarran International Airport. The festivities have since been moved to a downtown location at the Las Vegas Club Hotel & Casino. A visit to Amazing Johnathan’s website hints at the possibility that the SCREAMont Experiment might even become a permanent fixture on Fremont Street.
Johnathan’s haunted hotel will be open every day. The hours of operation are from 7 p.m. until 2 a.m. Patrons under the age of 16 require parental (or legal guardian) accompaniment. Johnathan’s website also mentions the following caveat:
You must sign a waiver to get in and it’s at your own risk. If you’re afraid of the dark, getting wet, or being touched . . . then this isn’t for you.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Amazing Johnathan to reveal The SCREAMont Experiment haunted attraction in downtown Las Vegas.
Headliner’s first-ever Halloween event for the public debuts at the Las Vegas Club Hotel & Casino beginning Oct. 6.
Just in time for Halloween, the “Freddy Krueger of Comedy,” Amazing Johnathan has announced the launch of The Amazing Johnathan’s SCREAMont Experiment, a terrifying interactive walk-through attraction at The Las Vegas Club Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas. Formerly by invitation only, Amazing Johnathan’s annual haunted event at his private warehouse has been shocking and scaring guests for years.
“I have always enjoyed designing and creating my annual haunt for friends and family,” stated Amazing Johnathan. “This year, I am ready to share The Amazing Johnathan’s SCREAMont Experiment with the public and allow them to experience the warped, wicked theatrics that others have enjoyed for years.”
Amazing Johnathan’s eerie attraction is a multi-level haunted hotel, featuring 35,000 square feet of themed rooms, optical illusions, mind-blowing special effects and terrifying twists around every corner. Upon entering, guests are greeted by a ghostly bellman who tours them through the quarantined hotel, which has been taken over by previous guests who’ve mysteriously gone insane during their horrific stay. The attraction will also feature a gift shop, where guests who survive the attraction can purchase ghoulish gifts and macabre merchandise.
The Amazing Johnathan’s SCREAMont Experiment is scheduled to open Saturday, Oct. 6 and will operate tours nightly beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets are priced at $20 for general admission and $30 for front-of-the-line access and can be purchased online or at The Las Vegas Club Hotel & Casino, located at 18 Fremont Street, Las Vegas. Each Tuesday, The Amazing Johnathan’s SCREAMont Experiment will feature a Two-For-Tuesday offer, allowing Southern Nevada residents to purchase two tickets for the price of one.
