Another great choice? The Blue Man Group! This lively show is filled with loud music, funny moments, and eye-catching visuals that are sure to impress even the littlest guests.
Experience the Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N.
If you’re a Marvel fan, you won’t want to miss a trip to the Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. attraction, where you and the rest of your family can immerse yourselves in the world of Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow, and other well-loved heroes. You’ll get the chance to check out some of the Avengers’ costumes and props up close, learn about the magic behind the movies, and embrace your own inner superhero.

Fly High on a Zipline.
If your kids are a little bit older, or you’re just a bunch of adrenaline junkies, you won’t want to miss the chance to soar through Las Vegas on the city’s urban zipline. Book tickets to SlotZilla and experience Las Vegas as you whiz through the sky above Fremont Street.
You can opt for the traditional Zipline experience, which sends you flying in a seated position seven stories over the cities for two blocks, or upgrade to the Zoomline experience, which lets you fly belly-down across five Las Vegas blocks from a stomach-dropping eleven stories up. This is one attraction you and your crew won’t soon forget!
These ideas are only a few of the ways you can have a great time with kids in Las Vegas. With a bit of research, you’ll find plenty of kid-friendly restaurants, family-friendly hotels, and other ideas to help you and your loved ones enjoy your stay.
