Top 10 Scary Las Vegas Urban Legends

Top 10 Scary Las Vegas Urban Legends

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?

10 – The Ghosts of Ballys Casino and the MGM
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
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
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….
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
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
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.
5 – La Palazza Mansion Demonic Hauntings
La Palazza Mansion is located at 1700 Bannie
Avenue in Las Vegas, just up from the main
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
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?

So Joshua Warren, a Paranormal Investigator
claims that there is a time warp outside of
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
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.
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

  1. I loved Las Vegas I would love to go back as I didn't have time to see all the hotels. I stayed in the mgm grand it was amazing! Plus I won $1400!

  2. Hell yeah I went to Vegas 13 years ago I came in a casino and took 2 grand and came out with 57 grand. Man luck is sweet

  3. My mom, her friend and her friend's nephew were at the Jason Alden concert. My dad ( they are divorced) heard something was going on and drove down to find her. She made it , her friend made it but the nephew did not. Sitting at work unable to reach her almost made me lose my sanity.

  4. The 'bodies in the dam' can be easily dismissed. Almost any large concrete structure built before the mid-twentieth century has such a legend. The bodies would decompose, leaving air pockets, and the structure would inevitably fail.

  5. I live in Michigan and we got a lot of creepy legends lol can u do a video of that ? Love love your videos!!! Keep up the amazing content ❤❤❤❤❤

  14. Okay, I am 68 and my grandfather worked on the Hoover Dam during the construction. He always swore that the story about the men being buried in the Dam were true. He said he knew of six personally and heard of many more on different shifts.
