The iconic Circus Circus! My parents went, what seems like one hundred years ago (in the 1980s)....When we were there I dear say not much had changed! The building is looking quite tired and although I'm pleased I saw it (but that is purely to say I went) and visited. Don't rush, there are a lot nicer casinos further down... More

I limited myself to $20 at the casino which I abruptly lost, so I moved to the Midway. There I let myself be a kid again for an additional $20 that lasted nearly four times as long as the first. And instead of leaving bust, I earned enough tickets to redeem for a few small prizes for my young grand... More

If you're looking for a kid friendly place, this is the place to be. However, it is a little far away from main strip, still easily accessible to all amenities via a cab or bus

It's downmarket and although technically on the strip it is quite far from what most people describe as the strip.

This is a really fun thing to do with kids. The place is really old and not the cleanest, but the prices for games are half the price of the games at Excalibur. My kids always have a fun time and walk away with a prize or two.

Wow! What to do with your kids in Vegas? Well, unlike a mere few years ago, to my pleasant surprise Vegas is now very kid friendly! As I drove down the strip on our family vacation I realized that I was about to pass the one casino that might entice my children to want to make a stop. I must... More

MGM needs to fix this place up. Kids love it. It looks the same as when I visited as a kid many moons ago. Many. Fix it up. It is great for kids. We just walked through to see if anything changed since 1976. Nope!

I'm sure the acts are okay (plus, they are free to watch), and the performers are talented, but it's really dirty and smells like an old roller rink. I liked watching the performance I watched but the seating was very limited and I just felt dirty being there.

Walked from the Encore with family (kids 6 &10)...don't do it The smell of 40+ years of smoke and vegas stench await you as you enter the front doors. The midway was literally out of Rod Serling world. I felt as if I had stepped back in time and not in a good ole nostalgic way. We then went to... More

I’ve always been partial to Circus Circus because it’s a place where a grown man can act Iike a kid without being under the influence. I’m 39 and the games still offer me some fun and a break from gambling. My nephew was having a blast and I was having a great time watching him have fun. The circus clown... More
