Las Vegas Vacations: The Family Friendly Circus Circus Adventure Dome

If you are going to Las Vegas and you have a family, then there is one destination that you cannot pass up. That place is the Adventure Dome at Circus Circus Hotel / Casino. The Adventure Dome is a 5 acre indoor amusement park. It features more than 23 rides and attractions. While Las Vegas heats up during the spring, summer and fall, the climate controlled Adventure Dome is kept cool year round. Aside from being the largest indoor amusement park in America, the Adventure Dome is a place that you will never grow tired of. Read on to find out why?

With wild rides such as the Canyon Blaster, Inverter, Rim Runner, Sling Shot, and Chaos, the Adventure Dome has more than enough attractions to keep you busy all day long. The Canyon Blaster is a double looping roller coaster that runs around the entire amusement park. While you are on the ride you can see many points around the Las Vegas Blvd, if you aren’t too busy screaming like a mad man. The Rim Runner is a heart pumping water ride that twist and turn down a river while ending in a gigantic 60 foot drop from a waterfall. If you are a spectator, try not to get too close to all the action. If you are watching the ride through plexiglass on the adjacent overpass you might get splashed. The Sling Shot is a ride that catapults you into the air with the force equivalent to 4Gs. Then the ride slings you right back down. The Inverter is a tall ride to say the least. It takes you more than 100 feet into the air and flips you in all different directions. Then there is Chaos. With a name like that who needs a description. Imagine being spun, twisted, and flipped in 3 different directions all at the same time. Chaos sound a lot like disaster. But don’t worry, it’s just a ride. If you want to enjoy some of the rides and other attractions, an unlimited ride pass is only $22 for adults and $15 for children.

If thrill rides are not your cup of tea the Adventure Dome still has a lot to offer. After all, the Adventure Dome is free to enter. It’s fun in itself just to take in the atmosphere. Circus clowns perform free live acts on a stage near the parks entrance every hour. There is a rock climbing area, miniature golf, arcade games, midway games, bumper cars, laser tag and a host of other rides and activities to enjoy. The Adventure Dome even has a section dedicated to small children’s rides. If you love to play video games, some of the latest and most challenging arcade games are spread through out the amusement park. Most of them cost no more than 50 cents. The miniature golf course always provides a little fun. The Adventure Dome even has a 3-D interactive ride that is so realistic; it will have you believing you are flying around at high speeds if you are not too careful. If you love to play paintball then visit the Laser tag arena. After every game you can check you score on the leader board. If you have an unlimited pass you can visit nearly all these attractions as many times as you wish. Anyway you cut it the Adventure Dome is more than a cheap thrill and a place you will never forget once you have paid it a visit.
