  • ✪ Top 10 Scary Las Vegas Urban Legends
  • ✪ New York City and Los Angeles Compared


Hello and welcome back to the Most Amazing Top 10 Channel on the Internet! I am your host Rebecca Felgate and today I am talking all about the Top 10 Scary Las Vegas Urban Legends. I just went to Vegas in December and it is a pretty intense place to be! I got drunk in Paris then found myself sitting among flamingos, then hopped down the road to find myself in a medieval castle…. Only in Vegas! Have you ever been to Las Vegas? Like – Share 10 - The Ghosts of Ballys Casino and the MGM Fire What is now Bally’s Las Vegas used to be the MGM Grand when fire tore through the building in November 1980. The incident today is the second worst disaster in Nevada History and the third worst hotel fire in modern US history. During the time of the fire, there were 5,000 people in the hotel and no sprinklers in place across a large part of the building. The fire started in the Deli restaurant and tore through the second floor. 85 people died, the majority from smoke inhalation, and 588 civilians, 25 employees and 14 firefighters were injured. The hotel was bought by Caesars Entertainment Corporation and turned into Bally’s in 1986. People that stay at the hotel are convinced that they hear screaming or ghostly apparitions walking through walls. Some employees have reported seeing a group of ghosts who hang around together…which is kind of sweet. 9 - Stephen Paddock Was in a Cult Or so local rumour has it. We can all agree that Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas Shooter, was a disturbed man, but was he part of a satanic cult. On October 1st 2017, Stephen Paddock broke a window in his 32nd floor room at the Mandalay Bay hotel and fired on a crowd enjoying the route 91 Harvest music festival. Using semi automatic riffels, he fired 1,100 rounds, killing 58 people and injuring a further 851. According to a number of news publications, including the National Enquirer, Paddock was a prime target for a cult which encouraged him to carry out the murder spree. Dr George Simon, a psychologist and author said that Paddock’s flaws, including his drinking and his gambling, made him easy pickings for a cult leader who was able to encourage him to do his bidding. 8 - The Rotting Corpse Under Bed Oh, this is a very popular urban legend, appropriated to many many many hotels in local folklores all over the country…and actually, at times, all over the world. It seems that the original story can be traced back to Sin City, though! Basically, the story goes that a person checks into a hotel…a budget hotel, you know…so they can save their cash for gambling! They check in, pop their bags down and have a rest. They notice a faint smell, but think nothing of it. They go out for dinner, come back ready for bed and the smell is a bit worse. They’re really tired and there is no one at the front desk so they suck it up and go to bed. They wake up in the night and the stench is bad. Really bad. They turn the lights on and check to find the source of the stink. They look everywhere, especially around the bed as that is where it seems the strongest. Eventually they decided to lift up the bed…and loh and behold…there is a festering corpse under there. That is round about the time the knocking at their door starts…. Freaked out, they climb out of their bedroom window, get in their car leaving their stuff behind and they hot foot it out of there. 7 - The Ghosts of Circus Circus I just went to Vegas over Christmas and I went into Circus Circus because of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas… you know that scene where they get the fear and can’t get off the carousel. It’s a classic. Well apparently that moving bar on the merry go round isn’t there anymore, which is sad. Also not there anymore is room 123. Well… the room still exists, it just has a different number, making it impossible to tell which room this homicide happened in. Oh, yeah…. Homicide. A woman shot her two children and her sons. Before the room was renovated, people would see the faint words, help me, written on the bathroom mirror. Cries for help can still be heard in the poker rooms, which are rumoured to have been nearby. Some also claim rooms 230 and 576 are haunted. 6 - 4th Grader Ghost at Edwards Elementary School Can you even imagine being brought up in Vegas? Insane Edwards Elementary School is located to the east of the city and has one student who has been in attendance for nearly 30 years. Students in Grade Four and Teachers of the fourth grade have reported seeing a young girl dressed in white. She is often spotted in the computer room and room 26, her old class room. It seems that the young girl is a deceased student who once attended the school, but died in 1990 when she was in the fourth grade. This is seemingly why only fourth grade students and teachers can see the girl, but no other years can. Another Vegas School Haunting, this time in a Middle school, at number ** we have the Janitor of Dell H Robinson. This is a very strange tale indeed and seems to effect only students who have moved to the school from outside of Nevada. Again, just east of the City is Dell H. Robinson Junior High…it isn’t too far from Edwards Elementary…kids could in theory hit both schools if they were unlucky…or just loved ghosts. The ghost at Dell H is nothing like the benevolent child at Edwards, though! The ghost here is of a janitor who is seen walking the halls with bloody hands. Again, seemingly only kids from out of state experience this ghostly apparition! How weird! Some new arrivals also report seeing him in their dreams after enrolling at the school. Stranger still, according to local legend, he disappears from sight and mind as soon as the pupil starts going to church. Riiiiight. Sure. Okay. 5 - La Palazza Mansion Demonic Hauntings La Palazza Mansion is located at 1700 Bannie Avenue in Las Vegas, just up from the main strip. Despite being prime real estate, the house has laid empty for a number of years. The property was purportedly formally owned by Mobsters . These days the mansion is said to be not just a little haunted, but very haunted. The previous owner thought he had brought his dream home but was freaked out when bad things started happening there. In the end, he decided to challenge the poltergeist – demanding it leave. This didn’t go down well, the man was then nearly chocked to death as an invisible entity grabbed him by the neck. His friends managed to pull him away. It seems the mobster former tenants had left some unfinished business in the house. The house was featured om Ghost Adventures in 2010. Also, I found a website where members of the public can leave comments and a number of people living in the area said that they had visited the house as a potential buyer or a trespasser who heard the urban legends. All agree that the house felt very cold despite the 100 degree heat outside. 4 - Area 51 We couldn’t do a Vegas list without talking about the nearby Area 51. Sure, the mysterious military location is not actually in Vegas, but it is tantalisingly close by. Area 51 is a highly classified United States Air Force facility that was once dubbed Paradise Ranch as a code name for the restricted base. The mysterious location has frequently been linked to UFO conspiracy theories, including the Roswell incident of 1947. In the 1980s, Rob Lazar told a Vegas Tv station that he worked at the centre to reverse engineer crashed flying saucers. As recently as March 2018, a couple spotted mysterious lights in the sky near the area. While aliens are the most popular urban legend here, some people say this is where filming of the moon landing actually took place. Whatever the test centre is used for, the fact that it strictly does not allow public visitors, along with its vigilant security control suggests that there is more than meets the eye at this facility. Could UFOs be bopping on over from Area 51 to the outskirts of vegas? Find out more at number 3 So Joshua Warren, a Paranormal Investigator claims that there is a time warp outside of Vegas. Warren said the warp occurs between the I-15 and Route 93. He measured this with a Differential time rate meter, a device used by UFO researchers that detects bends in the space time continuum, and the laws of physics we know our earth usually observes. The discrepancy in time measurement has led to paranormalists suggesting that there is a wormhole or black hole in the area….so ….you know…watch out. 2 - Bodies in the Hoover Dam Cement Arhh…I visited the Hoover Dam on my way in to Vegas over Christmas. The Hoover Dam sits on the Colorado River and divides Arizona with Nevada. Crossing this river is pretty much the gateway to Vegas and the water from the dam provides millions of Americans with clean water, especially those living in Vegas. None the less, the Dam has a dark history, and is often referred to as the Hoover Damned or the tomb of the damned. Built in Depression era USA, the official number of people who died while building the dam is 96, although many more were thought to have perished. That is the fact, the urban legend says that the majority of these people are encased in the concrete walls of the dam. Supposedly, the mixer couldn’t stop pouring concrete as it would mean a structural issue with the end result, so the bodies were just covered over and make up part of the vast wall today. This is probably just an urban legend, but a lot of people did sacrifice their lives for this structure. Some even say their lost souls can be seen walking across the bridge between states at night. 1 - Egyptian Curse on the Luxor Never mess with ancient Egyptians! The Luxor hotel is an Egyptian themed hotel on the Vegas strip, but it seems like the old Gods aren’t that on board with it. The Luxor has had a very consistently high death rate over the years since it opened in 1993 as well as a string of misfortune that has followed it. Some say 7 people died while building the vast hotel, and some of them were seen in the boats on the replica river Nile that meandered through the lobby. In 1996 a woman jumped from the 26th floor of the building and now haunts the floor. Another man died when he drunkenly fell from the 10th floor into the lobby. A hand bomb went off in the parking garage in 2007, killing an employee, in 2010 a UNLV football player dropped dead following a fight and in 2012, a Casino employee was murdered by her boyfriend in the Lobby. 2012 was also a bad year for the hotels rep as three guests caught legionaires disease – with further cases reported in 2017. One of the guests even died as a result. All in all, it is rumoured that the hotel is cursed. Why? Well, they didn’t appease the Old Gods when building the site, especially in the placement of the Sphinx, which is facing East rather than West and in the building of the Pyramid, which doesn’t have the required eye at the top. So that was the Top 10 Scary last Vegas Urban Legends! Which of these terrifies you the most? Let me know in the comments section down below. Comments from my recent video, The top 10 scary Slenderman Urban Legends Part 2 Jake Nicholson Said: Everyone needs to back off on Slinderman. I think he is just misunderstood. Has anyone ever just asked Slinderman how he is doing or if he just needs a hug. Everyone is to quick to judge.? Nooo… no, we’re talking about SLENDER man, not Slinder man….slinder man is a great guy. Slender man…. Total killer! Person on the Internet Said: Slenderman the man with no face the man with no soul the man taller than me? Mate – everyone on this earth is taller than me!
