We were told that we were crazy for planning to take the family to Vegas as part of our USA Road Trip. We lost count of the amount of people telling us there aren’t many things to do in Vegas with kids, and that it was pretty much a form of child abuse tot take them there anyway.
I can only assume these people have never been to Vegas, or don’t have kids – or both!
I know there is so much to see in America – our list ranges from a ski holiday to remember in one of the many amazing Colorado vacation rentals to taking a RV coast-to-coast. America really is a favourite of ours, and I’m so glad Vegas with kids didn’t disappoint.
Vegas With Kids
Vegas is a playground for all ages. Come night time its a grown-ups Disneyland, but during daylight hours (and up until about 10pm really) there are plenty of things to do in Vegas with Kids as well
Things To Do In Vegas With Kids – Bumper List
If entering the shop though a giant glass coke bottle wasn’t enough of an attraction then the ‘Around the World’ taste test may be just what you need!
Essentially wine tasting for kids, this $8 experience of 16 different Coca-Cola products around the world isn’t found anywhere else except here.
For some reason a visit to the M&M shop is the highly of the day for my girls. Wherever we are anywhere, from London to NYC, they have always added a trip to the M&M shop to their list. The one is Vegas is smaller than some of the others I’ve been dragged round, but is still just as much fun.
With half-hourly circus acts, and an indoor theme park, a visit to Circus Ciscus is a MUST!
While Circus Circus provides a fun-filled Las Vegas experience for all ages, the hallmark of this iconic Las Vegas hotel is The Adventuredome, one of America’s largest indoor theme parks.
The recently added Splash Zone, an expansion of the existing hotel pool complex, includes water slides, water features, private cabanas and a mobile food truck.
- 50-foot slide tower features three, colorful water slides – Four-lane Mat Racer, Aqua Tube and Speed Slide; height restrictions apply
- Splash Pad – Water playground with interactive components including water cannons, spill buckets, waterfalls and water jets
- Various shade structures to accommodate couples or families
- New lounge chairs along with umbrellas for individuals or families

Freemont St Zip Line
Part of the Fremont Street Experience is SlotZilla, a 12-story, slot machine-inspired zip line attraction – and this is, without doubt, one of the best things to do in Vegas with kids.
SlotZilla offers two ways to fly, the lower “Zipline” and upper “Zoomline.” Prices start from $25 for the Zipline, and you can save $5 by flying before 6:00 p.m.
The spectacular Volcano at The Mirage includes two volcano systems, a lagoon and fire shooters that shoot flame on demand, more than 12 feet into the air, and is a staple on all ‘things to do in Vegas with kids’ lists.
Since its opening outside the Mirage hotel-casino in 1989 the volcano has been one of most popular attractions on the Strip.
Again, another staple of things to do in Vegas with kids is going to see the iconic Bellagio Fountains.
Monday – Friday3:00 PM – 8:00 PM show every 1/2 hour, 8:00 PM – 12:00 AM show every 15 minutes
Saturdays, Sundays & Holidays12:00 PM – 8:00 PM show every 1/2 hour, 8:00 PM – 12:00 AM show every 15 minutes
New York New York
After spending time watching the buskers dancing on the ‘Brooklyn Bridge’ head inside with the kids to find a whole floor of non-gambling amusements, perfect for a few hours of family fun. Word of warning though – the Starbucks in this hotel is the MOST EXPENSIVE I’ve ever seen!
Las Vegas Outlets North
Some great bargain to be had here – and totally worth a visit with the kids for the Disney store alone!
From the replicas of the Rialto Bridge and the Campanile di San Marco tower outside, to the re-make of St Mark’s Square and gondola rides when you head inside – The Venetian is a treat for all the senses!
Keep little ones amused with the outdoor wading pool and free entertainment at St. Mark’s Square inside the mall.
Tournament of the Kings
Located within the Excalibur hotel, the Tournament of Kings is Las Vegas’ very best family-friendly dinner and a show experience. Adapted from the tale of King Arthur, this live-action production takes place in a 900-seat theater-in-the-round arena and immerses the audience in a tale of valor and treachery.
Dinner is served with no cutlery as eating in the medieval fashion is strongly encouraged- what kids wouldn’t love that!
Top Golf Las Vegas, the largest Topgolf yet, is pretty much the hottest family friendly attraction on the Las Vegas Strip. Located right behind the MGM Grand you’ll find 108 hitting bays on four levels. Hourly prices for a hitting bay for up to six players range from $30 to $90 depending on the day and time.
If you are thinking of visiting Vegas with your family then please dont be put off by people saying it isn’t suitable. There are so many fantastic things to do in Vegas with kids that you’ll probably end up finding that your family vacay isn’t nearly long enough!
