LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Freakling Bros., the company behind some of the most popular haunted houses in Las Vegas, says it will not have horror shows this year due to safety concerns amid the pandemic.
According to its website, the company says it cannot guarantee a way to protect customers, employees and volunteers properly.
Freakling Bros. says it will do its best to return in 2021 by returning "more vicious and intense than ever."

DEAR FRIENDS, FANS, AND HALLOWEEN AFICIONADOS,
We have been serving the Las Vegas community for longer than any other haunted attraction - nearly 3 decades. Our primary motivator has always been love and respect for our community, our fans, and an unparalleled passion for Halloween. Even during tough economic times we’ve always been committed to opening, regardless of the financial risk. It is with profound sadness that we must announce we will be taking a pause in 2020 for the first time ever.
Current regulations will not allow us to present our horror shows with the intensity that we are famous for, nor can we guarantee a way to protect our patrons or our valued employees and volunteers properly during this pandemic. After months of deliberation and careful assessment, we’ve regretfully had to acknowledge that the only responsible way to handle this is to put safety first, and close for the 2020 season.
We know this will disappoint our diehard fans from around the world, and we promise, on Freakling Honor, that we will do our absolute best to make it up to all of you in 2021, by returning more vicious and intense than ever.
With sincere appreciation,
The Mollner Family
