Circus Circus Las Vegas Hotel and Casino

Best Of IgoUgo

Hotel | "The big top."

Circus Circus Las Vegas Hotel and Casino Photo, Las Vegas, Nevada
Quote:
As the name suggests the theme for this hotel revolves around the circus theme with a big top circus tent and a megadrome full of fun rides. When the resort first opened in 1968 it was just a casino and circus acts however it was doomed to failure as it did not attract any high rollers. It was aimed more for families than adults alone. The other reason it was failing because it did not provide hotel facilities. It is a fairly isolated hotel away from the main strip although still on Las Vegas Boulevard. Currently there are no big hotels near it as they have been knocked down for future development. Quite a few holidays are offered to this hotel because it is quite cheap to stay here but to...Read More

The sirens show at TI.Outside the Treasure Island hotel there is an old pirate galleon sitting in water near the entrance to the casino. It is also along the sidewalk so there is not much room for pedestrians to walk past when one of the shows are on as many people stop and gawp at the show. There is a raised platform you can stand on to watch the show or if you are early enough and there is space alongside the metal barriers you can often get a fantastic view of the show.The show is noisy and interesting to watch there are lots of scantily dressed girls who storm the boat to overrun it and sort out the pirates on board. There is a lot of choreographed dancing and stomping of f...Read More

Freemont Street.Where is Freemont Street?Freemont Street is in downtown North Las Vegas and for the majority of people the area surrounding the place has become a mega place for violence, robbery and muggings. However it is probably prudent to take a taxi right to Freemont Street for your own safety. It was one of the most run down areas of Las Vegas and encouraged the criminal element however just recently there has been some developments down that end of Las Vegas with the opening of shopping malls art galleries and other interesting things which has now seen a decline in the crime wave in the area.So what is so special about Freemont Street?Freemont s...Read More

The volcano at The Mirage hotel.Right in front of the Mirage hotel is a beautiful rock and water display. During the day you can watch the water cascading down over the rocks which is quite a soothing sight to see.After dark this all changes and from 17:00 hours to 23:00 hours there is an hourly eruption from the volcano. The show starts with some music which builds up to a rumbling sound. During the rumbling sound you can just see some of the red fire just teetering at the top of the volcano until the drumming sounds reach a crescendo and the volcano comes alive with some large explosions.The explosions are accompanied by jets of fire shooting up and water. The wa...Read More

The fountains at Bellagio.The fountains at The Bellagio hotel are one of the most popular free activities in Las Vegas. Anyone who has been to Las Vegas will have probably seen them at some point during their visit. If they do not then they are very foolish and have missed an awesome sight. Surrounding the lake are some of the high end restaurants in the Bellagio hotel and it has been made to resemble Bellagio on Lake Como in Italy.The lake in front of the hotel is full of water covering an area of 8 Acres. It is vast and from 3pm every half an hour up to 8PM there is a choreographed fountain display. After 8PM the fountain show is every 15 minutes up to Midnight. T...Read More
