Paradise Falls, a converted shopping mall found in Fallout 3, is a hub for nearly all slaver activity in the Capital Wasteland and a constant source of fear for all its denizens. Led by Eulogy Jones, who regulates the purchase and selling of slaves, Paradise Falls is populated mainly by battle-grizzled, fearless slavers who have absolutely no qualms with the profitable business of slavery. Paradise Falls is infamous for its unabated incursions into Big Town, and into Little Lamplight on rare occasions.

It is implied during The Pitt that all the slaves are taken to The Pitt. Paradise Falls is heavily guarded by its Slaver inhabitants, all of whom are armed with weapons and are not reluctant to use them. Paradise Falls is also often featured on the Herbert Dashwood program on Galaxy News Radio.

Paradise Falls can be located by traveling nearly directly north from Vault 101 or Vault 106. It is north of Arefu and west of Minefield, and is recognizable from quite a distance by its most prominent landmark: a gigantic statue of a Big Boy-esque mascot holding an ice cream cone.


Gaining entrance

  • The player can gain free entrance through conversation, provided Karma is low (Evil or Very Evil).
  • With a Speech check, the player can convince the guard to accept a bribe of 500 caps in return for entry.
  • Accept the Strictly Business quest and capture at least one slave.
  • Complete the Head of State quest in favor of the slavers.
  • If all else fails, the player can simply fight your way in; this will, however, turn the entire town (except for the slaves and the Brahmin) hostile.




Notable loot


According to Herbert Dashwood's computer, former slaver leaders include Penelope Chase and Harmon Jurley. Harmon Jurley was leader around 2250.


  • Slaves to whom the player has reverse-pickpocketed weapons and armor will use them. (Players having difficulty freeing Penny's friend Rory (Rescue from Paradise quest) may find this information particularly valuable). Slaves will also pick up weapons from dead slavers.
    • Armed slaves are much better once the ammo of all their adversaries have been pickpocketed.
    • The same technique works with the whole adult slave pen except Breadbox (the old man with dementia).
    • Anyone the player brings in as a slave can also be armed and set free, though the VIPs will never talk to the player again once they get home. (Eulogy Jones and the survivors will all talk to the player as happily as they ever did.)
  • Occasionally when the player takes the slave collars off the slaves, they will frenzy and attack each other and the Brahmin in the area.
  • You cannot fast travel out of Paradise Falls once inside. You must manually exit.
  • Killing any of the named Slavers (e.g. Eulogy Jones) will award positive karma, as will freeing the adult slaves.
  • Clover will attack a player with positive karma who kills Eulogy Jones; to players with negative karma, she remains communicable.
  • If a player shoots somebody in Paradise Falls, everyone will turn hostile; unlike with most towns in the game, however, they will stay that way no matter how much time passes. Furthermore, the denizens will turn hostile even if you kill someone in a shop with no witnesses in the area. The Mister Sandman perk can be used to kill sleeping slavers without turning the town hostile.
  • If a player's karma is low (evil) enough a Slaver will occasionally approach with a gift, similar to when a player is in Megaton with high (good) karma.
  • If the player kills all the Slavers, Three Dog will occasionally mention it.
  • A player with evil karma will be treated with respect by the unnamed slavers, who will say things like, "Let's grab a drink," or "You're some pretty slick shit." A player with neutral or positive karma receives comments like "You don't look like you belong here," and will be threatened with a trip to the Pen. The named slavers will treat the player the same regardless of Karma value.
  • One of very few restored traffic lights can be found inside the Slaver Barracks.
  • The items inside the Slaver Barracks, Eulogy's Pad, and Lock and Load are tagged as stolen if the player picks them up, but if the player steals them, they will not lose karma.
  • There is one of very few Party Hats inside Lock and Load on a skeleton's head in a cage, however, the player cannot pick it up.
  • A heart shaped bed (congruent to the one you can buy for your Megaton House), along with movie theater seating, and a working projector can be found in Eulogy Jones' pad.
  • The architecture of the location is a tell tale Googie look of the 50's and 60's.
  • If you kill all slavers in Paradise Falls, when buying the slaves during Into the Pitt the slavers will call you a bastard and start shooting you.

Behind the scenes

  • The Vault 77 jumpsuit is a reference to the Penny Arcade comic commissioned by Bethesda Studios and on display at their website.
  • The "Ice Cream Boy" statue may be designed after the Big Boy statue.
  • On the pool table in the Paradise Falls Barracks, the glasses are set up to play beer pong, a popular drinking game.
  • Crimson and Clover, the two slave girls, get their names from the song "Crimson and Clover" by the Tommy James and the Shondells.


  • It is possible for all of the town's Slavers to go hostile for no apparent reason (none had been killed, etc.). This problem may occur if you entered Paradise Falls using your speech skill or negative karma when talking to Grouse, instead of doing the quest "Strictly Business". If you enslave just 1 of the 4 targets Grouse gives you, this issue should then be fixed. (confirmed on PC, Xbox 360)
  • Like the bug above, an Enclave soldier may spawn near the gate to Paradise Falls. (Confirmed, PC)
  • Sometimes when the player kills Eulogy Jones and removes all his items, his body will not be labeled as empty. (Confirmed, Xbox 360)
  • If a player's karma is low enough a Slaver will occasionally approach with a gift. You can get unlimited amount of aid items, caps and ammo from the Slaver by talking to him repeatedly.(confirmed Xbox 360)
  • Confirmed on all tested consoles, when you enter Paradise Falls for the first time the skulls on the powerlines will fall to the ground. you only see it happen once.
