I feel as though a very common idea is that Las Vegas is not for families. That may be true if you’re only coming to Las Vegas to gamble and drink; however, if you’re coming to have an actual family vacation than you can easily achieve just that. There are many places all over Las Vegas for families to go. This is just a list of my five favorites on the Las Vegas Strip for families. If you decide to have a dinner for just the adults I recommend Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen, which you can read about in this blog post.
1) Circus Circus
Adventuredome is an indoor theme park that is approximately 5 acres. All riders over 33 inches must have a ticket to get on the rides. You can buy per ticket, but my advice is to put an all day pass. For individuals over 48 inches tall its $32.95. For individuals under 48 inches its $18.95. You can purchase tickets here.
The Splash Zone has three water slides, two relaxing pools, and an interactive splash pad with water canons. For hours of operation click here.
Free Circus Acts
Circus Circus has free circus shows daily starting at 11:30 am. Click here for show schedules.
Tournament of Kings
Tournament of Kings is Las Vegas’s medieval times show about King Arthur’s round table. I have gone to this show three times already, and cannot wait for DJ & Brooklyn to be a little older to take them. You get served dinner while you watch the show. David and I love the tomato soup. Tickets are 55.95 + taxes for guests 3 and older. Guests 3 and under are free. Click here for show times and tickets.
The Fun Dungeon is an arcade at the Excalibur. Open from 10 am to 10 pm.
3) Shark Reef Aquarium
The Shark Reef Aquarium is located at the Mandalay Bay. I went here a couple of years back and loved it. We plan on taking the little ones this summer. There are about 4 or 5 different interactive things to do. For more information and tickets click here.
4) Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N
S.T.A.T.I.O.N. is an interactive Avengers exhibit. You use an app while there to become a S.T.A.T.I.O.N. agent. S.T.A.T.I.O.N. is located at Treasure Island. They’re open from 10 am to 10 pm.
