The Strip, breathtaking light shows and glowing billboards – the many casinos and exciting nightlife have Las Vegas nicknamed “Sin City.” But this reputation is not always true, because the city in Nevada also has a quieter side. When in Las Vegas, South Point Hotel is the perfect place to stay with your family. Discover the family-friendly Las Vegas on your next visit to the desert city.
Wet ‘n’ game
In the heat of the desert, a cool down is always welcome. Jump into the wet in Wet ‘n’ Wild, Nevada’s largest water park. The park is in southwest Las Vegas, not far from Red Rock Canyon. Adventurers expect 25 slides with tight bends and fast descents. If you prefer to take it easy, you can relax in the wave pool, for example. The little ones can let off steam in the pool area “Splash Island” to their heart’s content.
Marvel Avengers STATION
Dive into the world of Marvel Comic Heroes. Marvel Avengers STATION is an interactive experience that takes you on the trail of Captain America, Hulk, Thor and Iron Man. Discover scientific experiments, top-secret files and much more. The interactive exhibition also offers numerous mini-games, and, in the end, visitors have the chance to get their ID cards and become part of the Avenger team when they have to save the world once again.
Real Bodies at Bally’s
Curiosity and attention are needed if you want to visit the “Real Bodies” exhibition in the hotel and casino complex Bally’s. 20 human bodies, perfectly preserved, give visitors a deeper insight into life and our bodies. The exhibition tells us the story of human evolution in a unique way. Since the exhibits are real bodies, “Real Bodies” is not for very young children or people with delicate minds.
The Las Vegas Strip has more to offer than just casinos. Directly connected to the Circus Circus Hotel, you will also find the AdventureDome – an indoor theme park under a pink-colored dome made of insulating glass. Pure thrill offers a ride on the Canyon Blaster with its double loop and double screwdriver. What a freefall feels like you can experience in the roller coaster El Loco or during a bungee jump in the Xtreme Zone. Of course, there are also rides for the whole family such as the “Circus Carousel”. For the smaller ones, there are so-called Junior Rides like the “Frog Hopper” and “Miner Mike”.
Las Vegas is known as a city of brilliant lights. As the sun sets, it sparkles and glitters on every street corner and every wall of the house. But what happens to all the lights that will be replaced at some point? The Las Vegas Neon Museum is the final resting place for lights and illuminated signs that have become obsolete. Many of the neon signs are real works of art, such as the giant oil lamp from the Aladdin Hotel. The Neon Museum retains part of old Las Vegas.
Las Vegas, the desert city, also has a lot to offer families. To easily reach the various attractions, rent a car at Las Vegas Airport.
