Q: WHAT’S THE CLOSEST AIRPORT?
A: McCarren International Airport, about 15 minutes away from AREA15 and the Official SCHB Hotel.
Q: HOW DO I GET THERE?
A: Drive, or better yet, take a taxi,limo, Uber or Lyft. Traffic, parking, everything will be a nightmare on Halloween night in Las Vegas, and with the Sin City Halloween Ball being the biggest Halloween event in Vegas, the area around it will be a zoo. We strongly recommend leaving the driving up to someone else so that you can just concentrate on having fun.
Q: IT’S MY FIRST TIME, WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
A: The SCHB is a mandatory costume ball where attendees can display their wild side in a public setting without feeling bound by the rules of day-to-day life. It’s a chance to dress in sexy, seductive, and outrageously creative attire, however, it is not uncommon for people to attend dressed in modest outfits or gag costumes. Constant entertainment, and surprises around every corner make this event like no other. With attendees from all over the world, our events are an ideal way to explore your secret self, make some new friends, and see some things you don’t see every day. And remember “YOU ARE THE SHOW, SO DRESS TO THRILL”.
Q: WHAT TIME DOES THE SCHB BALL START AND END?
A: The SCHB starts at 9:00pm and ends at 3:00am.
Q: DO I NEED TO WEAR A COSTUME?
A: You need to adhere to our dress code which is roughly COSTUMES of any type, FANTASY / FETISH WEAR such as: uniforms, leather, lingerie, latex, rubber, p.v.c., lace, feathers, saran wrap, or anything else you might dream up. FORMAL WEAR meaning tuxes for men, gowns for ladies. Ladies may wear sheer fabrics, and revealing outfits, but no nudity is allowed. See DRESS CODE for complete information.
Q: WILL I BE ABLE TO ENTER THE BALL AT ANY TIME?
A: As long as you have a valid ticket in hand that has not been scanned you will be able to enter the event from the moment it opens until the time it ends.
Q: SHOULD I BUY GENERAL ADMISSION OR VIP TICKETS TO THE BALL?
A: The General Admission (GA) and VIP tickets both grant you access to the all out insanity which is the Sin City Halloween Ball…. VIP tickets allow you to roam any RESERVED VIP ONLY AREAS. VIP ticket purchasers can expect to be treated to everything included in General Admission as well as a VIP only entrance, private VIP areas to mix and mingle with talent, celebrities, and invited guests, and unlimited free drinks with ultra premium liquors throughout the event venue, with separate VIP bar locations.

Q: WILL THERE BE FOOD AND DRINK?
A: Yes. There will be many bars and many beverage choices, hard and soft.
Q: WHAT IS THE CODE OF CONDUCT?
A: Though sensual by nature, the event is not a swinger’s party. Everyone is respectful and appreciative of everyone else’s creativity and sensuality.

Q: WHERE CAN I FIND PERFORMANCE AND SET TIMES?
A: Set and performance times can be found under the ACTS tab on this website.
Q: ARE TICKET PRICES GOING TO INCREASE FROM WHERE THEY ARE NOW?
A: Tickets are cheapest during the holidays (November, December, January) and go up periodically from there.
Q: WHY THE TICKET SURCHARGES?
A: Ticket surcharges begin with credit card processing fees. These are added to ticket purchases in proportion to the price of the ticket. These go directly to credit card companies and are unavoidable. Clark County adds a 9% tax to tickets of all “Entertainment” providers which is called an LET charge (Las Vegas Entertainment Tax). LET is unavoidable, and is sometimes built into the price of your ticket, or camouflaged. The ticketing COMPANY then adds their own surcharge as well, to pay the employees that service your orders. How MUCH they charge is the “surprise”, but again, unavoidable.
Q: WILL TICKETS BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR?
A: Depending on the venue, some tickets may be available at the door, but mainly on years when Halloween falls in the middle of the week.
Q: IS THERE ANOTHER WAY TO BUY TICKETS OTHER THAN THE INTERNET?
A: Yes, but only on the day of the show at the door, if any tickets remain.
Q: IF I ORDER TICKETS NOW, HOW DO I GET THEM?
A: All tickets purchased through this website are provided electonically upon purchase or shortly thereafter.
Q: WILL TICKETS SELL OUT?
A: At this years 25th Anniversary Halloween Ball there will only be 2600 tickets total made available to the public, so there is almost a certainty that the event will sell out. We recommend purchasing early so that you can rest assured you will be able to attend. Some ticket types and/or price categories have smaller quantities and will sell out more quickly than others.
Q: CAN I UPGRADE MY GA TICKETS TO VIP TICKETS?
A: No. So be sure you are certain of which tickets you want before making your purchase.
Q: I DID NOT RECEIVE MY ORDER CONFIRMATION. I CHECKED MY SPAM FILTER, NOTHING WAS THERE, AND THE MONEY HAS BEEN TAKEN OUT OF MY ACCOUNT, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
A: Immediately contact us HERE
Q: ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL HOTEL DEALS?
A: We will have some special room deals at key properties around Las Vegas. Check the “DISCOUNT ROOMS” page on this website for more information.
Q: IS THERE PARKING AVAILABLE?
A: Yes, but very, very few spaces available. We strongly recommend taking a taxi, limousine, Uber or Lyft and leaving the driving up to someone else. That way you can just concentrate on having a good time.

A: We will post information as we learn of other activities that might be of interest.
