The arrival of October gets many of us thinking about Halloween and some of the top casinos in Las Vegas are finding their own ways to celebrate the spooky season.
Vegas stalwarts MGM Grand have just announced that their Halloween contribution will be based around their Hunger Games: The Exhibition attraction.
They are inviting residents in the wider Vegas community and out-of-state visitors to attend their Halloween special, which runs from Friday October 18 to Sunday November 3. Out-of-state visitors will pay a rate of $20 for adults and $15 for children, but Nevada residents who can show a Nevada ID will get in for a discounted fee of $10.
The Exhibition, which is based at the MGM Grand site, includes a host of Hunger Games-related activities, displays and interactive attractions, including set recreations from the blockbuster Hunger Games films, genuine Hunger Games props and costumes. Visitors to the Exhibition can also explore a range of themed galleries, including the Hall of Justice, President Snow’s Office, District 13 and a huge interactive training centre, which gives visitors the chance to test their archery skills.
According to MGM, the Hunger Games outfits on display at the Exhibition could offer inspiration for Halloween costumes for visitors of all ages, although it isn’t clear whether visitors will be encouraged to arrive in fancy dress, as is the case at Treasure Island’s Marvel Halloween event.
The MGM Grand is one of the Las Vegas Strip’s most high-profile casino resorts and features one of the city’s biggest gaming floors. Owners MGM Resorts opened a new conference centre on the site in January this year, and there are plans to redevelop the resort’s entrances on Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue over the next few years.
