Bonnie Springs Become Bonnie Screams for Halloween

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Visiting Bonnie Springs is like stepping back in time. The ranch was stopover for wagon trains in the 1800s. This Halloween season, it has been transformed into Bonnie Screams and features attractions such as Slender Man, Bloody Mary and Lizzy Borden.

Bonnie Springs, also called Old Nevada, will open its Halloween attraction on Oct. 10. The event is marking its fifth year and this year's promises to be extra spooky.

"Every year, we want to change it up a little bit, you know, make the haunts a little different especially for repeat customers who come back," said Kelley Bryant, Bonnie Screams producer.

She says visitors keep coming back because of the uniqueness of the Halloween attraction where an old ghost town serves as the backdrop. This year, there will be two indoor haunted houses and an outdoor haunted trail. Organizers say, there's a chance visitors may experience paranormal activities.

"There are definitely spirits moving around up here. I've seen it for myself," Byrant said.

Whether or not one believes in ghosts, the spirit of Halloween at Bonnie Screams has been going strong since it launched back in 2008. Organizers say Bonnie Screams is a two hour plus attraction.

"It's not a Disneyland trip where the cost is astronomical to get there," said Alan Levinson, the owner of Bonnie Springs Ranch. "It's pretty economical to do this out here."

The spooky fun begins nightly on Thursday, Oct. 10. All ages are welcome. Tickets start at $25. For more information on Bonnie Screams and other Halloween events, click here.
