Circus Circus Hotel & Casino
Circus Circus is a hotel and casino that combines a live circus show with the fun and flavor of Sin City. Featuring the Adventuredome indoor amusement park with rides, midway games, and standard Vegas casino games, Circus Circus (part of MGM Resorts International blends affordable family-friendly fun with adult gaming entertainment.
True to its name, Circus Circus boasts live big-top acts in its casino, with trapeze artists and acrobats performing above the crowd. Plus, there’s the Adventuredome attraction with its laser tag, roller coasters, and 3D thrill rides.
Visitors will also find the world's largest permanent circus with aerial artists, jugglers, wacky clowns, and more, located on stage at the Carnival Midway, which also includes games with prizes and an arcade. Since Circus Circus isn’t near some of the popular Vegas attractions, book a hop-on hop-off tour of the Strip to get around easier.
Things to know before you go
- Thanks to the circus atmosphere and carnival games, this hotel is geared toward families, not necessarily for couples or travelers looking for a quiet, romantic spot.
- Pets are not allowed except for service animals for people with disabilities.
- There is a round-trip shuttle service from the airport, available for a fee.
How to get there
Circus Circus is located in the northern part of the Las Vegas Strip, away from the action found in the center and southern end of the boulevard. For example, it’s about a 40-minute walk or about a 11-minute drive to the Paris hotel and its Eiffel Tower. Ridesharing services and taxis are readily available through the city.
When to get there
As the hotel is geared toward families, some of its restaurants close earlier on weekdays, as compared to other Vegas hotels, so late-night dining options may be limited. The Adventuredome closing times vary depending on the time of year; check the hours of operation on the casino website.
Located close to Circus Circus, the Stratosphere Tower at the Stratosphere Hotel stands 1,149 feet (350 meters) above the Strip, offering 360-degree views of Sin City from its observation deck, plus thrill rides like Big Shot, Insanity, X-Scream, and SkyJump. There’s also the Top of the World restaurant, which rotates 360 degrees over the course of an hour, giving diners unique city views.
