3 Fun Places in Las Vegas for Children
People say Disneyland is the “Happiest Place on Earth.” However, Las Vegas is trying to change all that. After all, Sin City isn’t doesn’t function purely because of its glitzy and glamorous hotels and casinos – it is slowly transforming itself from a Decepticon to Autobot, if you get where we are going with this. However, if you didn’t get that Transformers reference, it means Las Vegas is changing itself image to a more wholesome one, where families can have enjoyable vacations.
This 5-acre indoor park is a great place for kids and adults to enjoy a multitude of rides and games. Apart from the traditional roller coasters and bumper cars, there are arcades, miniature golf courses, and a 4-D movie adventure. Entrance to Adventure Canyon is free, with parents only needing to pay for the rides and arcade games.
Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay
Kids are generally fearless, so viewing some of the most dangerous predators that inhabit the sea, is like water off a duck’s back. If you want to take your kid to an aquarium that stands out, take them to Shark Reef Aquarium. It has 14 exhibits featuring over 100 deadly sharks, piranhas, crocodiles, and even sting rays. The “Touch Pool” and the 1.3 million gallon shark exhibit with a walk through tunnel are the main highlights at Shark Reef Aquarium.
Are you afraid of the possibility that your children at some point in their lives will want to skydive? Compromise and take them to this indoor skydiving place instead. Vegas Indoor Skydiving simulates the actual experience of the sport by letting guests get the adrenaline rush of a free-fall experience in a vertical wind tunnel that churns out 120 mph winds. It is a pretty nice place to experience skydiving without the fear of having an accident while freefalling.
There are lots of other attractions in Las Vegas for children and families to enjoy but these three are enough if you and your family have a limited time visiting Sin City. The diverse variety of Las Vegas’ attractions is something that is being expanded continuously by many of the big integrated resorts on the Strip.
While families are unlikely to be huddled around a gaming table in Las Vegas, there’s a good chance you’ll stay in one due to the sheer amount of casino resorts in the city. Take the Mandalay for instance, once known to rely solely on its slots, table games and bingo rooms. But with attractions such as the Shark Reef Aquarium it has been able to offset the revenues it has lost to leading portals that offer players features such as live bingo callers, and 24-hour gaming options. Thus, the Mandalay and co. have marketed themselves to a whole new market, with their appeal reaching families and beyond while on vacation in Nevada.
