Our Circus Circus Las Vegas Review:
The name says it all. Circus Circus Hotel Las Vegas is truly a whirlwind of kaleidoscopic activity, almost to the point of excess. Where else can you play blackjack with a clown while gymnasts fling themselves above you on a trapeze? This wonderful fantasyland is one of the last holdouts in a Vegas where urban chic is slowly conquering whimsy.
Parents with their kids in tow love Circus Circus. It’s a bit like Disney World but with plenty for adults to do as well. There’s no attempt to hide the gambling tables here. In fact, the slots and blackjack tables seamlessly merge with a mezzanine loaded with arcade games, face painting booths and a McDonald’s. Kids can play their games while looking down on dad shooting craps and vice versa.
This popular resort casino knows its clientele and rarely has trouble keeping its thousands of rooms filled. It helps that the room rates here are among the lowest on the Strip, but as with everything in Sin City, you get what you pay for. Standard rooms are tidy and clean but contain average furnishings and the bare minimum of amenities.
Of course, the kids don’t notice these details because they’re clamoring to get back out on the floor and have fun. Circus Circus is home to the largest permanent circus group in the world. Every day, they perform multiple shows featuring trapeze artists, high-wire walkers, jugglers, magicians and other amazing feats. The shows are free and held in a special performance arena that can easily be viewed from the mezzanine.
The midway level of the casino is home to a host of popular carnival games and a massive arcade with more than 300 video games and pinball machines. Clowns roam the hotel and casino in numbers equal to the cocktail waitresses, handing out balloon animals and keeping the atmosphere light.
Circus Circus also has a couple of large swimming pools, with one in each section of the hotel complex. This entire property is so huge, in fact, that minibuses and a cool aerial shuttle ferry guests around its many sections for free. Seven restaurants and a clutch of fast-food joints keep hotel guests fed and watered, but fine dining it is not. The bubbly Pink Pony is open 24 hours, offering affordable meals, while the Steakhouse serves up, you guessed it, meat. Naturally, there’s a massive buffet restaurant as well for unlimited gorging.
The only things really lacking at Circus Circus are upscale pampering facilities like a spa, a fitness centre or chic bars to sip cocktails in. But the Wynn Las Vegas and Encore are just across the street for as much expensive pampering and partying as you need. Circus Circus also suffers from a rather distant location from the centre of the Strip. Treasure Island and the Venetian aren’t far away, but with kids in tow the walk into the nexus of the Strip and its major attractions like the dancing fountains of the Bellagio could be rather taxing.Been here?
