If you are travelling to Las Vegas with children, be sure to pay a visit to the Adventuredome Theme Park, a five-acre indoor entertainment centre with fun for all ages. It is home to the largest indoor rollercoaster in the world. And if ’coasters’ are your thing, don’t miss the Desperado, which includes a 70m drop down a 55-degree incline. It can be found at Buffalo Bill’s Hotel, around 40 minutes from Las Vegas, in the outlying district of Primm.
Las Vegas is synonymous with Bonnie and Clyde, two of America’s most notorious outlaws. Also in Primm you can see the bullet-riddled car in which they made their final getaway. For a taste of the Old West, head to Bonnie Springs, monument to the frontier days of gunfights and gold-mining. It even offers the opportunity to test your gun-slinging skills, by taking part in a mock Old West shootout.
Las Vegas is overflowing with museums and art galleries. Car enthusiasts will relish a trip to the Auto Collections at the LINQ, while those with an interest in fine art should make their way to the Bellagio Gallery. Even children can get involved, with a visit to the Discovery Children’s Museum, which is packed with interactive attractions and exhibits.
