 Circus Circus


Circus Circus is probably one of the most recognized names and kid-friendly casinos on the Strip today.  The famous clown marquee was erected in 1976 by Young Electric Sign Company

Make Reservations at Circus Circus


Circus Circus opened on October 18, 1968, featuring only a casino and no hotel.

Besides offering free circus acts to keep the little ones entertained, the 5-acre, pink-glass enclosed Adventuredome amusement park was opened in 1993 (originally named Grand Canyon Slam). In this photo, the Canyon Blaster roller coaster is crawling up a hill for a heart-pounding plunge! 


After over-eating in the Circus Buffet, why not take a ride on Chaos?!!  There are 25 rides and attractions inside the Adventure-dome.

This beautiful dragon-horse is one of the fine animals that can be ridden on the Circus carousel. 


The name of this ride is "Drifters"--a balloon-themed ferris wheel.
