Bluegreen Club 36, situated near the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, can serve as a home base from which your family can enjoy a wealth of vacation activities. Stay with Bluegreen Resorts and take in a little of the city’s legendary nightlife at one of its glittering casinos, or get back to nature with a day-trip to Red Rock Canyon, Death Valley, the Hoover Dam, or the Grand Canyon. Las Vegas has recently earned a new reputation as a family-friendly destination, which means that there will be plenty of fun activities for everyone in your party.
Try out Adventuredome at Circus Circus, which offers roller coasters and other exciting rides, as well as games, food, and entertainment, all in an enclosed, air-conditioned space. Older kids will especially like the computer graphics-rich 4-D Motion Ride, which will immerse them in a world of thrills, bumps, and jolts based on popular movies such as Happy Feet.
Move through another multi-dimensional experience when you enter the 4-D Special FX Theatre and meet up with favorite cartoon personalities like SpongeBob SquarePants. But be careful: You might end up part of the action yourself, when your vibrating seat gets splashed with water, air, or bubbles. And don’t forget to try out the barrel roll and negative G-forces on the newly opened El Loco roller coaster.
The 200-foot-high, glass-encased pink dome adjacent to Circus Circus on Las Vegas Boulevard offers these and more than 20 other attractions. Since its debut in the early 1990s, Adventuredome has provided families with plenty of alternative ways to have fun. Billing itself as the largest indoor theme park in the nation, it features bumper cars and other carnival rides, along with laser tag, a pirate ship, a rock-climbing wall, and a miniature golf course.
And if you’re lucky enough to be in town during the month of October, you’ll find the place transformed into the Frightdome, complete with a series of custom-designed haunted houses and lots of other ghoulish fun.
