Several resorts down Las Vegas Boulevard offer free entertainment to attract tourists. Their thoughts: if you stop for a moment to watch the free show you might appreciate it enough to decide to walk inside and enjoy everything else the resort has to offer.
One of the resorts offering free entertainment directly in front of their main entrance is the Mirage Hotel & Casino. As soon as the sun goes down you can witness a genuine volcano eruption multiple times every night. Even if you don’t plan on visiting the Mirage, walking over there to see the volcano eruption is absolutely worth your time. The Mirage Hotel & Casino offers a tropical/wildlife theme and the volcano eruption is just one part of the entire theme.
Other attractions at the Mirage, part of the tropical/wildlife theme are:
- The Aquarium behind the front desk. The 20,000-gallon saltwater tank with coral reef is home to approximately 450 fish from 80 different species
- Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. Come face to face with white lions, white tigers, panthers, leopards, and Bottlenose Dolphins
For those of you who are interested in watching the volcano eruption, here’s the eruption schedule:
Begins at 7:00 p.m. and runs every hour on the hour until 11:00 p.m. (nightly)
Take a few minutes if you like to look at the video. You’ll get an idea about the technology involved to make these eruptions possible.
