Adventuredome at Circus Circus
Las Vegas is known as an adult’s playground, but there’s no reason why kids can’t have fun too! One of the most popular attractions for families is the Adventuredome Theme Park, which is located at Circus Circus … and the good news is that this isn’t just for kids.
Spread across five indoor acres, the Adventuredome is climate controlled with a temperature of 72F, 365 days a year. Just like any other theme park, there are rides specifically for those less than 48 inches tall, those that are taller than 48 inches and a variety of attractions that appeal to everyone, regardless of height.
There are 18 rides in the Adventuredome. These range from the premium rides, which include roller coasters, 4D rides, water shoots, spinning rides and tower shoots, to more tame adventures (but no less fun) such as bumper cars, swinging ships and children’s rides. The wildest rides include the double loop, double corkscrew Canyon Blaster; the Rim Runner water ride with a 60-foot waterfall; the Inverter with 360 degrees of flipping and constant G Force; and the Sling Shot, which gets up to 4Gs of accelleration.
Other cool activities include a virtual reality game zone, rock climbing, bungee jumping, miniature golf and laser tag as well as an arcade and free circus shows.
The Adventuredome is open seven days a week (unless it is closed for maintenance). Hours vary throughout the year and are extended during holiday and peak seasons. Though you can pay per ride ($5.00-$8.00 each), if you plan on riding at least a few of them, you might want to consider purchasing an all-day ride pass, which costs $26.95 for those 48 inches and taller and $16.95 for those under 48 inches.
