Halloween at The Stanley Hotel

3 NIGHTS OF FRIGHT

The Historic Stanley Hotel has had a long running tradition of throwing some of the most sought after Halloween parties in the country and has officially announced their “3 Nights of Fright” Halloween events for 2015.

Celebrating the literary and ghostly character of the Stanley Hotel, “3 Nights of Fright” kicks off with the deliciously suspenseful Murder Mystery Dinner on Friday October 23, 2015. The event will feature a top theater act and an elegant 4-course meal in the magnificent and notoriously haunted MacGregor Ballroom. The horrific fun continues on Saturday, October 24th, with the hotel’s flagship event “The Shining Ball”. This can’t miss “see and be seen” event has become famous for the partygoers’ incredibly detailed and inspired costumes ranging from Shining-themed custom garb to other-worldly, nightmarish creations. This amazing night of music, food, drink, horror and dancing is Estes Park’s most coveted costume party. Rounding out the week on Saturday October 31st, The Stanley Hotel will be hosting the Halloween Masquerade Party, which is Northern Colorado’s wildest Halloween costume party bringing in guests from across the country to experience the haunted debauchery that only Halloween night at the Stanley can define.

The Stanley Hotel has traditionally sold out these events within days of releasing tickets, so this year to compensate the growing attendance and demand, The Stanley Hotel is making Halloween at the Stanley bigger than ever before. The flagship event “The Shining Ball” and the popular “Halloween Masquerade Party” will be taking place in the most paranormally active site in the Stanley Hotel, the Historic Concert Hall. The Historic Concert Hall will provide an opportunity for an additional 100 guests to join the best Halloween party in the country. "Every year our goal is to exceed our guests’ expectation, and this year by holding these legendary events in the Concert Hall and partnering with a professional design team we are planning a truly immersive haunted party experience that will set the bar for years to come,” said General Manager, David Ciani.

Tickets for all events go on sale September 1st, 2015
