Memorial Day Weekend With Kids in Las Vegas

By: Jamie Baker

Memorial Day Weekend is fast approaching. If you're planning to unwind with your kids, you may want to have a Las Vegas family vacation.

Contrary to popular belief, Las Vegas is not only for gambling, adult entertainment and wild parties. It is rapidly becoming one of the favourite family destinations in the US. Last year more than five million families with kids had a Las Vegas family vacation.

One of the top Las Vegas kids' attractions, especially if you are planning to stay on the Strip, is the Amusement Parks.

On top of the list is Adventuredome Theme Park located at Circus Circus Hotel and Casino. This is a wild ride that will bring out the adventurous spirit in kids and kids at heart. Don't miss the rides such as Canyon Blaster, Rim Runner, Sling Shot, Chaos, Inverter, Lazer Blast, and SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D Ride. There is also a free clown in case you want to just relax and go for laughs. Thrill Rides at the Stratosphere is another stop that you should include in your Las Vegas family vacation. Your children will simply shout out for more when they experience Big Shot, X-Scream and Insanity, the Ride. Imagine being propelled 27 feet over the edge of the tower. The experience wouldn't be forgotten for a long time. You can also take family photos at the Tower Shops where Paris, Hong Kong and New York themed streets are found in one place. And if sightseeing is what you want, the Observation Deck is the best place to be. It is the tallest free-standing observation tower in the US that kids in Las Vegas should experience and see.

Las Vegas family vacation means non-stop fun. It would be a great idea to visit Gameworks if absolute fun is what you want. This is a place for technological entertainment (a haven for gamers as the name suggests), and fabulous food as well. If you want to play arcade games with your kids in Las Vegas and have a full stomach, your choices are almost endless.

No Las Vegas family vacation will be complete without visiting the arcades. New York-New York Hotel & Casino, reminiscent of New York City, should be on your top list. The Coney Island Emporium boasts more than 200 coin-operated arcade games and midway-style carnival games - a fantastic way to bond with your kids and at the same time, let out the kid in you. Sounds fun? If these arcade games seem not enough for parents and kids quality time, visit The Roller Coaster nearby. The roller coaster cars are designed as NYC cabs. But what makes them special more than the usual NYC cab ride is that, only these cars can go as high as 203 feet.

There are many more attractions to see in this enchanted place. One long weekend is simply not enough to enjoy time with your kids in Las Vegas. When you experience the fun here, taking another Las Vegas family vacation will be inevitable. Now look for other long weekend holiday, mark your calendar and plan your next visit with your kids in Las Vegas.
