Fun Activities for Kids in Las Vegas

By Edited Nov 20, 2016 0 6

Las Vegas has been called an adult amusement park; that’s true, but there are plenty of things for children to do as well.  Here are a few suggestions:

SkyZone Indoor Trampoline Park

SkyZone Indoor Trampoline Park

This is the newest attraction for kids in the valley.  Located on the east side of the valley off Tropicana near Boulder Highway, it’s a large warehouse-sized building with wall-to-wall trampolines and more trampolines set at an angle along the walls.  You can jump from one trampoline to another and travel across the whole room as well as bounce off the walls.  In addition to open jumping, dodge ball and SkyRobics fitness classes are offered.  Tickets for 60, 90, or 120 minutes can be purchased.  There is open jumping time as well as special times just for certain age groups.  An accident waiver must be signed and special shoes must be rented before entering.

Pole Position Raceway

Pole Position is an indoor go-kart raceway.  There are two locations, one at Arville and Flamingo, and on the west side near Tenaya and Smoke Ranch.  Kids must be at least 48” tall to race.  There are different karts and race tracks for adults and kids.  Helmets are provided.  After each race, drivers receive results sheets with lap times and race results.  Also offered are Youth Racing Camps during summer months, parties and group events.

Las Vegas Mini Gran Prix

This is an outdoor go-kart raceway located at Rainbow and Vegas Drive.  This venue has four tracks to accommodate four types of go karts.  There are 2-seater go karts so small children can ride with adults, also karts just for adults and some just for children.  The venue also features amusement park rides, arcade games, a pizza restaurant and party room for rent.

Adventuredome at Circus Circus

The 5.5 acre pink dome behind the Circus Circus resort on the strip houses an indoor amusement park.  Rides inside the dome include 4-D theater adventures, a double-loop double-corkscrew roller coaster, and dozens of other amusement park rides for kids and adults.  Also found inside the air conditioned dome are a miniature golf course, indoor rock climbing, bungee jumping, food and entertainment.  All-day ride passes can be purchased or you can pay individually by ride.

Additionally, all the local’s casinos have supervised kids play areas like “Kids Quest” at the Stations casinos.  They offer supervised play areas, arcade games, quiet places for rest and arts and crafts.

I think I might take the kids to Adventuredome and go to the trampoline park myself. That looks like a lot of fun. :) Great article...congrats on first page!

Thanks! It's great to be featured. And I want to try the SkyZone too, I wish it was around when I was a kid. I'll probably add it to the article, but as an afterthought if you have a child over 6 you might want to check out my article on horseback riding in LV as well: http://www.infobarrel.com/Horseback_Riding_in_Las_Vegas

Congratulations on the feature. I never realized LV had so many activities for "the kids." I have heard it is one of the best places to live in the USA with excellent schools and job opportunities.

Actually LV is a great place to live with lots of family friendly places, although we do need to work on improving our schools. But once you move here you tend to stay away from "the Strip". That's the only place I wouldn't advise you to take your children, but many people do anyway.

The roller coasters at Stratosphere and New York New York are awesome too.

This is great, we have been to Vegas a couple of times with the kids and I'm always scrambling for ideas to keep them occupied. I want to try the trampolines too, that sounds so much fun!
