For kids, nothing beats the Circus Circus Adventuredome Theme Park on the Las Vegas strip. Ok, so maybe the rollercoaster at New York New York or the rides at the top of The Stratosphere may come close, but the Circus Circus Adventuredome is a full sized theme park.

Imagine being a kid and stepping out of your hotel room knowing that only a few short steps away lies a a complete theme park with roller-coaster, pirate ship, log flume, and loads of other attractions. Brings a tear to the eye!

OK, so I’m being a tad sentimental, and this being Circus Circus, you could be forgiven for thinking that the Adventuredome is just a gimmick. But it’s not – it’s a real, full sized theme park that really will keep the kids (and the adults!) amused.

Covering five acres of land directly connected to the main hotel, the Adventuredome is completely covered, so there are no weather problems to worry about. Mind you, unlike UK theme parks, Las Vegas is in the middle of a desert, so the weather tends not to be too much of a problem anyway! That said, it’s one less thing to worry about when planning the day’s activities.

Conclusion

If you’re staying at Circus Circus, you have to check out the Adventuredome. It’s free to go in, so you can see all the rides, only paying if you want to go on one (you can either pay for each ride individually, or pay an Adventuredome pass, giving you unrestricted access to all of the rides).

If you’re not staying at the hotel, but have kids, you owe it to them to take them. In fact, once they get wind of a full-sized theme park on the strip, they’ll never forgive you if you don’t!

To sum up the, the Circus Circus Adventuredome Theme park is good value, good fun, and well worth a visit.

    I’m not sure just what MGM had in mind when they purchased this dump, but they should implode it
