Las Vegas isn’t just for adults anymore. Nowadays, this glittering city in the Nevada desert offers plenty of cool things for kids to do, too. Some of them are laugh-out-loud fun, while others are deeply educational and thought-provoking. All are worth seeing. If you’re planning an upcoming family trip to Las Vegas, then you’ll want to put these three kid-friendly activities on your list of things to do and see.
Adventuredome Kid-friendly Theme Park
Adventuredome adventure park, which is located in the grounds below Circus Circus. This carnival-themed attraction sits under a big pink dome and is five acres of carnival and gaming fun. There are rides and games and even a 4D movie adventure waiting to be experienced by you and yours. Best of all, there is no entry fee; your only cost will be for the rides and the games. It’s definitely one of the best places to be in Las Vegas if you’re a kid or even just a kid at heart.
And here’s a bonus. When you’re done playing below Circus Circus, be sure to check out the free circus acts that play all day in the hotel and casino above ground.
The Fall of Atlantis
The legend of Atlantis is a story that has sparked imaginations for centuries. This version of the tale takes advantage of all the glitz and glamour that is Las Vegas. It features an animatronic show, where the story of Atlantis is played out against the beauty of Caesars Palace. This stunning display of special effects, water fountains and fireballs, plus the 50,000-gallon aquarium, will keep your kids enthralled from start to finish. It’s a free show. Just head over to Caesar’s.
CSI: The Experience
The world of forensic science is a fascinating one, and this exhibit capitalizes on the popularity of the CSI TV show to draw visitors into this amazing world. Throughout their tour, kids are given the opportunity to learn about the tools and tricks used by forensic scientists as they solve crimes.
This exhibit gives your kids an opportunity to learn more about police sketch artists, DNA evidence, fingerprinting, blood splatter analysis and information technology. The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History as well as the National Science Foundation contributed to and developed this exhibit. As far as Las Vegas attractions for kids go, this one is one of the most educational.
