Attractions, shows, arcades, museums – kid-friendly activity in Las Vegas 

Amusement parks, coasters, attractions

Las Vegas Apple Roller Coaster

The roller coaster is one of the most famous rides in the world. Sure, it’s no longer the biggest roller coaster of its day, the Cyclone from Luna Park, but the Las Vegas Roller Coaster at NYNY Hotel – now called The Big Apple Coaster & Arcade – is not just entertainment, it’s an unforgettable ride. The roller coaster is located near, or rather above, the Casino Hotel New York New York. It partially goes right over the building itself and makes everyone who rides it feel like a fighter pilot. The Las Vegas roller coaster ranks third among all its American counterparts. Their speed sometimes reaches 130 kilometers per hour.

Guests must be at least 54″ to ride. And the Height of the roller coaster is Height 203 ft (62 m).

Note: This is one VERY serious roller coaster! Make sure you put EVERYTHING in your locker, before the ride. Absolutely NO cellphones. If you are afraid of heights, beware.

Stratosphere Thrill Rides

For thrill-seekers there are unique rides called Stratosphere Thrill Rides.

The peculiarity of this entertainment complex lies in its very location. Stratosphere Park is located on the highest observation tower in the United States – Stratosphere Tower, which together with the spire reaches a height of 350 meters.

One of the most popular attractions of this complex is a crazy jump from the height of a 108-storey building, which is equal to 260 meters. Another attraction, called “Big Shot” is no less extreme and is a catapult, located at a height of 329 meters, which “shoots” passengers into the sky an additional 50 meters at a speed of 90 km / h. Another undoubtedly worthy of attention is the X-Scream, which is a giant swing located 264 meters above the edge of the tower.  And then there’s Insanity the Ride, on the level of a 110-story skyscraper. So the usual spinning in a circle, given the height of the ride, and the lack of footrests, turns into a mega-exciting ride at 65 km/h.

 

 

ADVENTUREDOME

Adventuredome differs from other similar theme parks by its pink glass dome that houses 25 rides ranging from children’s merry-go-rounds to extreme rollercoasters. Adrenaline-seekers will definitely love the Canyon Blaster double dead loop slide. This is the highest roller coaster in the world, located in an enclosed space.

The unpredictable Chaos roller coaster that goes in three directions will make even the most seasoned rider jittery. Another popular thrill ride is called “Inverter”; for the ride it is better to have a not weak gut, because the moving cab constantly changes the strength of acceleration and repeatedly makes unexpected sharp turns. And the latest addition to the Adventuredome is the water ride “Rim Runner”. Its creators offer guests of the complex to cool down a little and make an unforgettable jump on a waterfall 18 meters high.

Las Vegas Indoor Skydiving

Try skydiving indoors in a one-of-a-kind vertical wind tunnel with wind speeds up to 120 miles per hour! No planes or parachutes are used in this adventure. It’s just you and the wind. You’ll be trained by an expert – no previous experience required.  The trainers are super enthusiastic, supportive and helpful, giving you constant personalized feedback to help you hone our skills.

After a short training session, you’ll be ready to experience the freefall aspect of skydiving in a safe room. The adventure will last a full hour.

Gondola Ride at The Venetian

One of the most popular places in Las Vegas is the Hotel Casino Venice, which recreates the atmosphere and architecture of the northern Italian city standing on water. There is Piazza San Marco, the Rialto Bridge, and, of course, the canals can be sailed on gondolas.

What do tourists usually do in Italian Venice? Of course they ride gondolas with a gondolier, colorfully dressed in costume from the time of the Venetian Republic. Likewise, in American Venice in the middle of Las Vegas, you can take a gondola ride down the canals along the houses and listen to Italian serenade songs.

The gondola ride is about 12 minutes and seats four people and departs  from St. Mark’s Square

  • Address: 3355 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109, United States

Fly LINQ Zipline Las Vegas

Experience a unique sensation – fly 12 stories in the air over Las Vegas for an exhilarating ziplane experience. Fly over the LINQ boardwalk on the only ziplane in the Las Vegas Strip. The ride operates day or night, so be prepared for an over-the-top, adrenaline-filled experience. The Linq zipline is 1,121 feet long and the highest zipline in Vegas.

Note: children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

High Roller Observation Wheel

The High Roller is still the tallest Ferris wheel in the world. It is 550-foot tall.

It takes 30 minutes to complete a full turn, during which time more than a thousand people can gaze at Las Vegas surroundings. What do visitors feel? Fear? Oh yes! Daze? Yes, indeed. Ecstasy? Indescribable!

The Ferris wheel in Las Vegas works seven days a week, but sometimes it is rented for all sorts of events – corporate parties, weddings, etc., so do not be surprised, it suddenly will not be allowed to ride. You just have to stop by in a couple of hours or the next day.

Waterparks

Wet’n’Wild Las Vegas

Wet’nWild Waterpark in Vegas offers all kinds of rides for every taste – from the breathtaking descent on Canyon Cliffs, to a pair of near-vertical slides, to a leisurely ride on Colorado Cooler, to a lazy river looping around the multi-level Paradise Falls playground.

And thanks to the Q-Band system, visitors can purchase premium status to cut down on their time standing in line under the hot desert sun.

The water park also offers plenty of opportunities for a relaxing break, offering visitors the chance to escape the scorching sun under one of the many organic glass umbrellas or to take a break from the action in one of the more than 30 cabanas located around the Red Rock Bay wave pool and Splash Island kids’ area.

Cowabunga Bay

What makes the water park different is that it has the world’s first Surf Safari slide, developed by Polin exclusively for Cowabunga Bay. The giant slide is designed to take a 4-person raft down. The journey begins with a long, swift descent in the dark, followed by a breathtaking drop into the world’s largest 55-foot artificial parabolic “wave.” Riders will then continue down the unexpected curves of the course, accelerating and resulting in a “shot” through the crest of the wave into the funnel. The glide will end with a fall into the lower pool.

Shops

HERSHEY’S CHOCOLATE WORLD

Hershey’s is a popular tasty American chocolate bar. In the store you can buy chocolate products for every taste, as well as symbolic items. If in regular stores you will be offered two, or even only one kind, then  there are several kinds of Halloween and New Year’s Eve candies with cherries, caramel, nuts, and different kinds of chocolate (milk and dark). The candies are in huge tubes and can be poured by weight or bought in packages. At the entrance there is the Statue of Liberty made of chocolate. Everyone is given “samples” of the products to try.

Address: 3790 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109, United States

Price: no entrance fee

M&M’s World

A great place to stay with kids, if your doctor lets you have chocolate in at least microscopic quantities. The store is located in the New York, New York hotel. It’s a huge four-level store for sweet tooth. However, only one floor sells candy; the rest are occupied by T-shirts, mugs, and toys. There’s a huge wall of 120 high pipes filled to the top with candy for every taste. It’s free to try.

A free presentation tour on the mini “how chocolate is made” train with a free bag of jelly beans at the end. You get the idea, you can ride many times and collect at least a case of chocolate! A small fee, but a worthwhile “How to Taste Chocolate” workshop. But most importantly – a store with nice and very high quality souvenirs.

Las Vegas kid-friendly shows

Excalibur’s Tournament of Kings

The spectator “hall” is divided into zones: Russia, Dragons, Spain, France, Ireland, and others. You get your seat, and sit at a long table, facing the arena.

All the actors in the show work with the audience, teaching you to react and cheering up the crowd, and carrying food during the show (which you eat with your hands for extra medieval credibility, which is very funny, but don’t worry, they will bring more wet and dry wipes). During the show, each section of the hall has its own “favorite,” so visitors actively shout, tap their feet, and slam the table as they’ve been taught.It’s especially fun for kids to eat with their hands, banging on the table for your king of the land (Knight) horses, jousting and the story of the bad knight (Dragon King). . The costumes, choreography and battles were amazing.

Cirque du Soleil

Cirque de Soleil is the most beautiful circus in the world, where time flies by in the same breath…

The costumes are absolutely insane and at the same time unrealistically beautiful, the incredible work of the directors, the artists.

Cirque de Soleil presents shows at several locations in Las Vegas: The Beatles LOVE at The Mirage Hotel and Casino, Michael Jackson ONE at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Mystère at Treasure Island, “O” at Bellagio Hotel & Casino, KÀ at MGM Grand. Each show contains stunning acrobatic elements (power, aerial), the show demonstrates how great human capabilities are. Colorful costumes, great music, light and sound effects. Must see.

Mat Franco

Matt Franco is a fantastic magician and his likable character turns the show into a real laugh riot. His magic will have you scratching your head for days wondering ‘how did he do that? Not only is his magic brilliant, but he is charming, witty and very approachable. The theater is not large, which makes it suitable for him to perform many card tricks. He keeps the audience engaged and involved, and his final magical illusion or focus changes every night to surprise the audience.

  • Address: 3535 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109, United States
  • Price: from 49.99$

David Copperfield

David Copperfield’s show is an amazing sight to see him create on stage at the age of 63! Such profound direction, breathtaking numbers and escalating numbers you won’t see anywhere else! David does not stop and each time creates more and more incredible things on his stage. Several numbers take place right in the audience, next to the tables.

Everything is spectacular, clear, bright, incredible. The show is beautifully and somewhat sentimentally constructed, with David sharing his memories from his childhood and the numbers built into that canvas. The audience is actively involved – sometimes the choice of assistants is random (for example, by throwing balls around the hall), at other times the maestro invites the audience to the stage personally.

Criss Angel Mindfreak Live

Criss Angel performs what you see on TV, but it’s different when you see it live in person because he makes you a part of it. A really great showman! His shows on Planet Hollywood are constantly changing and getting better.

There’s no profanity, but it’s fun for all ages. It’s really entertaining.

The Eiffel Tower light show

Paris Hotel is modeled after the world famous Hotel de Ville in Paris, France and is one of the few Las Vegas casino properties that still retains that theme. The Las Vegas version of the hotel features 2,916 rooms, a rooftop pool and a casino with a painted ceiling inspired by the Parisian sky.

Caesars Entertainment recently underwent a $1.7 million renovation. It installed 300 color wash lights and 800 strobe lights on the exterior of a 1/2 scale model of the Eiffel Tower and put on a free light show on the Las Vegas strip. The new show, unveiled in February 2018, depicts the colors of the French flag – blue, red and white.

The show was inspired by the light show on the Eiffel Tower in Paris and was created in collaboration with Vision Signs.

Today, the Eiffel Tower light show takes place every half hour from sunset to midnight, every day of the year, 365 days a year. The best way to see the tower’s light show in Paris is from the sidewalk in front of the Bellagio fountain opposite.

Jabbawockeez

How can a dance group that doesn’t speak or have any facial expression make entertaining 1. 5 hour show? Watch this and you’ll find out how. The dancing was top notch, but most of all like the interaction with the audience. They really get everyone in a groove, and they take facial expressions to a new hysterical level!

If you only want to see a dance show, this may be disappointing. If you want a variety show with dancing, humor, storytelling, audience interaction and just a good time, Jabbawockeez is a fantastic show!

Terry Fator Show

It is a fun and very interesting experience. Fator is a triple threat…. Singer, ventriloquist and comedian, he excels in all categories. Compared to Dunham, Fator is perhaps a little more family-friendly. The show is short, about 70 minutes, but it will keep you laughing all the way through and won’t bore you.

The show opens with a version of ‘We Are the World’, with him singing all the vocals and not saying until the end that it sounds like all the original performers. Incredible! That’s a big wow as an opener.

DISCOVERY CHILDREN’S MUSEUM

If you want to bring true joy to your child, this is the right place! Entertainment from toddlers to older children. Believe us, your child will spend a whole day there, and it will go unnoticed. The place was very clean and well organized. The gift shop was cool too.

 There are 3 floors of non-stop interactive and educational exhibits at this museum. Physics, science, anatomy, history, etc. etc. can be found on the screens. You can start on the lower floor and go through the jungle gym with all kinds of interactive fun stuff for kids and adults.

The Water World section, where you can play with boats in the pools is amazing. They have plastic parks for kids to run and play with water displays. The water fountain that shoots plastic balls into the roller skating lane is a great social media moment.

Ethel M Chocolate Factory

Here you can see how chocolate is made and taste the unique chocolate absolutely free, and walk around the unique cactus botanical garden located nearby.

The founder of the chocolate factory – Forrest Mars – named it after his mother, according to whose recipes the candies and chocolates have been made for many years (since 1981). This is where everyone’s favorite Snickers and Milky Way are made.

Great scenery! Friendly people, delicious chocolate, and an inside view of the candy making process.  The tour ends at the gift store. You get free candy! It is close to from the botanical garden and a must visit.

Madame Tussauds

The Madame Tussauds Museum in Las Vegas, like other similar museums around the world, is a collection of wax figures of actors, sports stars, superheroes, and other celebrities.

The museum in Las Vegas opened in 1999. The museum covers more than 2,700 square meters, which allows it to hold a huge collection of figures, in which probably everyone can find their favorite actor or athlete. The figures are allowed to touch, hug and even kiss.

The sculptures look so much like the real thing, that probably many people can fool their friends as if they really took a picture with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, or Jennifer Lopez.

Neon Museum

This museum is part of the history of the development of Vegas. You can see all the signs that used to be in the city here. A lot of old-school signs, great atmosphere, and a great tour. Unfortunately, the museum area is very small.

The Neon Museum is not something you can just visit – you have to buy a ticket in advance and take a guided tour.  There are different rates by time, cheaper for children, seniors and Las Vegas residents.

The tour guide talks in detail about where this or that sign used to be, how it was created, a little bit of Las Vegas history. Don’t expect all the signs to be working. Most of them are just illuminated. Some are restored and work. But most of the signs are still in the process of restoration.

There is a small souvenir store at the museum.

FUN DUNGEON

This arcade is like a carnival, with ring toss, skeleton ball, and horse races where participants throw a ball. Besides the usual points awarded for prize cards at the special prize tables, a number of attractions offer stuffed animals as prizes. There is also a special area for the little ones with mini field hockey and carousels. But don’t worry, there are also old-fashioned arcade games. The atmosphere is friendly and most rides are in good order.

It is the world’s largest collection of pinball tables.  They have many machines to choose from and many new ones in addition to an extensive collection of older machines. Most of the machines give you five balls a game, which is a lot more fun than the usual three you get at most places. For the most part, the machines are in good working condition.

Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat

Children will be delighted, and adults too, you can go down to the level below and see the life of dolphins under water.
