You've heard the whispers. Maybe felt the spirits. And, yes, we are here to confirm: HallOVeen is back this October!
LAS VEGAS – On October 8th, HallOVeen at the Magical Forest will make its highly anticipated return, welcoming boys and ghouls of all ages to a family-friendly Halloween experience benefitting Opportunity Village.
While the Forest sat dormant last year due to COVID-19, the haunted jungle ruins managed to take over the 2.5-acre theme park, beckoning spooky creatures of all shapes and sizes. For 2021, you'll meet many of them as you walk through a cemetery surrounded by hundreds of spooktacularly decorated trees and jack-o-lanterns. Friendly witches and ghosts excitedly await your arrival!
All the more fun in costume, Forest-goers can enjoy funtastic rides, nightly entertainment, trick-or-treat stations, and midway carnival games. There are also gifts, goodies and more available for purchase throughout the park. You can even sink your fangs into some delicious food from one of our on-site food vendors. This year, admission to HallOVeen at the Magical Forest includes ALL of the rides and access to two mini-escape rooms. Purchase tickets for the night of your choice online and in advance at HallOVeen.com for the best rates and to guarantee admission.

About Opportunity Village
Mission: Opportunity Village is a not-for-profit organization that serves people within the Southern Nevada community with significant intellectual disabilities, to enrich their lives and the lives of their families.
Seven families who were determined to give their children with disabilities the best lives possible founded Opportunity Village in 1954. Now, more than six decades later, Opportunity Village is one of the most recognized and respected organizations of its type in the United States.
Nevada’s largest employer of people with disabilities, Opportunity Village serves over 3,000 individuals annually, providing vocational training, employment, habilitation and social recreation programs and services that improve their lives.
Folks supported in Opportunity Village’s Prevocational Training Programs and in jobs provided by the organization throughout the community, have collectively earned wages amounting to more than $3.7 million in 2020. They are hardworking and diligent, proudly paying taxes and happily leading fulfilling lives.
Primarily a self-funded organization, Opportunity Village generates the majority of its operational funding through its employment contracts, multiple business lines, fundraising efforts such as the Magical Forest and Great Santa Run, and grants on the federal and state level, saving Nevada taxpayers more than $37 million annually.
