The Vegas Bucket List

Heading to the desert for your first visit?

Here are the things you simply have to do and see in Fabulous Las Vegas.

1. The Fountains of Bellagio

Bellagio Fountains Vegas

The most ambitious and complex water feature ever conceived. If you like a good water display, you simply cannot miss the Fountains of Bellagio.

Every 15 minutes, over 1,200 spritzers shoot the waters of an 8.5 acre lake some 450 feet in to the air. The music dances and syncs perfectly with classic tunes from the likes of Sinatra, Gene Kelly and more. A stunning sight.

2. Enjoy a Breakfast Buffet at the Wynn

Breakfast Buffet at the Wynn

Voted Best Buffet in Las Vegas by USA Today.

Enjoy flavors from all around the world in one sitting at this world-famous Breakfast Buffet. The Wynn is an attack on the senses, and particularly the taste buds. Sample food from 15 different live-action stations, and refuel for the day ahead.

The perfect tonic after a hard night on the strip.

3. Visit Sapphire: The World’s Largest Strip Club

Sapphire Las Vegas: World's Largest Strip Club

71,000 square feet packed to the rafters with ultra sexy dancers in every direction the eye cares to wander. Sapphire is the world’s largest strip club, and it has to be seen to be believed.

Check out our list of the best strip clubs in Vegas. This is one specialty where Sin City is sure to deliver the goods…

4. Enter the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay

Shark Reef Mandalay Bay

Mandalay Bay’s Shark Reef Aquarium has over 2,000 animals in 1.6 gallons of water. It is one of America’s finest exhibitions of the world’s most dangerous underwater predators.

Here you will find sharks, jellyfish, piranhas, sawfish, endangered green sea turtles and even the extremely rare golden crocodile. You wouldn’t expect to find these guys in a desert. But they’re here, and they’re definitely worth a visit. Adult admission is $18.

5. Lose your hangover at Adventuredome

Adventuredome Vegas

Adventuredome is a 5 acre indoor theme park attached to the Circus Circus Hotel. Rides include Canyon Blaster, the world’s largest indoor double-loop, double corkscrew rollercoaster and El Loco, a custom S&S coaster due to arrive in December 2013.

If you’ve spent too long festering in casinos and strip clubs, an adrenaline jolt at Adventuredome could be just what the doctor ordered. Or it could be the recipe for a heart attack, shaken and stirred. Your call.

6. Regain your hangover at Circus Circus Hotel Casino

Circus Circus Hotel

Not only does Circus Circus Hotel boast its own indoor theme park, it also has one of the most vibrant casinos in Sin City – and a fully-operational static circus that runs every day (and has been for 40 years).

If you like a taste of Hollywood, this hotel has played host to the A-list. It was featured in the 1971 Bond classic, Diamonds Are Forever. Austin Powers snuck in here during International Man of Mystery. It’s even referenced in GTA San Andreas.

7. Arouse your senses at Zumanity

Zumanity at Vegas

Zumanity is a Cirque du Soleil production that explores the raunchy side of human nature. You’ll find all the usual acrobatics and death-defying stunts, but with a seductive twist. The show is led by the ‘Mistress of Sensuality’, a drag queen with a very sharp tongue.

The 90 minute show runs from Friday through Tuesday, twice nightly, at 7:30pm and 10pm. Book tickets online then head over to the New York-New York Hotel and Casino for a great start to the night.

8. Dip in the Wet Republic Ultra Pool

Wet Republic Ultra Pool Vegas

Wet Republic is a 53,000 square feet ‘party zone’ tucked off the MGM Grand’s pool area. It is open through the spring and summer, and is host to a variety of wild activities that draw in the young, the rich and the sinful.

Cabanas, bungalows and VIP areas are available. This is one of the most vibrant areas of Vegas during the day. Over 21s only.
