Circus Circus Hotel

Circus Circus is one of the older hotels on The Strip. You can tell that it's in the original Las Vegas style, when you see it's hundreds of tiny flashing lights out front. It's very pretty at night! Inside, it's fancy, and decorated with paintings of clowns and trapeze artists. I never saw any real clowns or trapeze artists while there- though, I did see a magician doing tricks outside one of the stores near the Adventuredome.
Circus Circus has the largest indoor theme park in the country! A rollercoaster winds around and through it, and cool rides like the Slingshot, give you a thrill. Arcade games are scattered throughout. There's a carousel, and a ferris wheel, all under the Adventuredone's pink translucent roof. My son loved the 4-D Virtual Reality ride that features SpongeBob.
You can buy an all-day pass for $17 for kids (under 48" tall) and you can squeeze a lot of fun out of it!
Just to let you know- the kids take ages to come out of the SpongeBob ride. Four of us parents were really worried about what had happened to our kids, and one buff-looking dad was even trying to break open the exit door to get inside! But don't worry, your kids do eventually emerge from the ride's exit area, with big smiles to boot.
Circus Circus is in the grungier part of The Strip, in the very north. It's not a very nice part to walk through, so I suggest driving there.
Drive down a block or so to the Wynn Resort, and check out their amazing forest-covered mountain and the dazzling waterfall behind it. See inside, the fairytale flowers and ceiling.
Or, drive down one more block and check out The Venetian, something you absolutely MUST see while in Vegas! The Venetian is out-of-this-world beautiful! Check out the incredible architecture all around the exterior, and amazing St Mark's Square and the canals inside.
