Anyone know of any haunted areas of Vegas...

Here is one from this website..Haunted sites in las vegas

Apparently the TIKI MASK at the TROPICANA...

"One of the most popular corners of the Strip is home to the Tropicana Resort and Casino. In fact, when you want to experience the ultimate in Las Vegas entertainment, the legendary “Folies Bergere” at the Tropicana is where tourists go to see the most beautiful show girls perform. When one first enters the Tropicana, the first thing that can be seen is the large Tiki mask located in the front lobby. It is this mask that some guests and employees feel is the source and site of the paranormal activity. Those who have made the mistake of touching the Tiki mask report contracting a large purplish rash on the part of their body that touched the mask. Others who have taken photos in front of the mask report that a large shapeless purple mass seems to hover unexplainably in the developed photos. While nobody is sure why this occurs, not many seem to question it."

Anyone seen that or heard of it....any others to add?

yes...it's also been reported that local residents who touch the Tiki mask end up with foreclosed homes within 60 days of touching it!

I don't know about haunted Tiki masks, but I've caught wind of a very cool looking authentic ghost town somewhat near here that we plan to visit in the near future.

Most residents in Las Vegas are NOT in foreclosure jfk...so go ahead folks, touch the mask and get the rash!

Actually, Rhyolite (near Beatty) and Goldfield (Esmeralda County) are actual "ghost towns." The Ghost Hunters Show did a segment at the infamous Goldfield Hotel a couple years ago, and they did in fact, capture an "apparition" on film.

Other places in Las Vegas that are supposedly haunted are the Liberace Museum, Bally's, and when it was there, the old Golden Nugget Showroom. There might be other places around LV that are supposedly haunted, but those are the ones I've heard most about over the years.

I also heard that there is a Haunted Las Vegas Tour...but also heard it's not really worth the money.

I've been to Rhyolite on my way from LV to Reno...not much to sneeze about. There is a house made out of bottles. You'll breeze right through the place, unless you plan to do some photography there. If so, try to hit it at sunset...right before the ghosts supposedly come out.

I've also seen some striking photos...however, I was quite disappointed in it in real life. I was there at around 1pm...so nothing haunted about it at that time of day. The website is actually a more accurate reflection of the place than the artistic photos I've seen.

This website pretty much reflects it properly: http://www.ghosttowns.com/states/nv/rhyolite.html

Supposedly, Redd Foxx visits his old house on South Eastern, which is now a real estate agency and haunts the place...

I have also heard that about the Liberace Museum being haunted and the adjoining Carluccio's being haunted as well, which was opened by Liberace...

Rhyolite is cool, it has a strange vibe. Spent the night there before taking pictures through My telescope. Nice. Another strange place to spend some time at is the "Race Track" in Death Valley. (I know it's Cali) but the deep desert rocks at night.
