Las Vegas is one of the world’s premier destinations for fun and entertainment. Whatever your budget or taste, Sin City offers an experience or activity that you will never forget.

Las Vegas has a unique adventure for everyone

Vacationers are never short of things to do when they take a trip to Las Vegas. This desert oasis is packed with experiences that range from budget-busting, adults-only glamour to budget-friendly activities that are fun for the whole family.

1. Indoor skydiving

This indoor-skydiving experience gives you an hour to float and fly in the safety of a padded room. The enormous fan creates 120-mile-per-hour (193-kilometer-per-hour), hurricane-force winds that cradle your human frame as you free-fall far, far away from the dangers and fright of the open sky. However, the company does not provide a media package to capture your session, so be sure to bring a camera.

2. Wreck Room


Located in the heart of Las Vegas’s thriving Chinatown, Wreck Room is the perfect place to let loose after loading up on a comforting bowl of pho or wonton soup. The idea is deceptively simple. Groups of five pick their implements of destruction (such as a golf club or baseball bat) and then wreak havoc on whatever’s in the room. Fans of Office Space will be especially excited to unleash their rage on printers and other defunct office equipment.

3. Grand Canyon skydive

The Grand Canyon is one of the most popular day trips from Las Vegas. Although there are several spots available for viewing its natural splendor, this experience offers one of the most unique perspectives. You and a professional skydiver will jump from 15,000 feet (4,572 meters) in the air for a soaring-like-an-eagle adventure. While the excursion is pricey, it includes all of the equipment needed and a certificate of achievement.

4. Escape Room


These days, it takes a lot to make an escape room stand out. This one, though, follows the Vegas maxim that more is better. The game, which requires groups to come together and solve clues in order to escape the room, is in a business district just off the Strip and features six immersive, pop-culture-inspired games that can host up to 42 players.

5. Party bus club crawl

Bar, Cocktails

Few cities outrank Vegas in terms of the sheer number of parties going on every evening. This party bus tour gives you the experience of a high-roller by offering the chance to skip the lines and cover charges at the best soirées on the Strip. Drink specials abound across the evening’s destinations, while the whole event is MC’d by a driver who will keep the laughs and good times going for the inter-club journeys.

6. Supercar and Baja truck experience

The supercar and Baja truck experience combines two of the best parts of Vegas adventures – fast cars and desert fun. You will be picked up from your hotel (and dropped off after the tour), and then you will get to choose a supercar to zoom around on a Formula One-styled track before heading on an off-road excursion in Baja trucks across the desert’s dunes. The exotic multicar escapade captures the incongruence of opulence and terrain that defines Vegas, making it a once-in-a-lifetime event.

7. Learn how to pole dance

Fitness Studio

Stripper 101 offers women the chance to learn how to pole dance. Conveniently situated in the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino by the Strip, the venue offers a 75-minute beginner-friendly pole-dancing course. The class, which has been featured in magazines and television programs across the US, is affordable, giving everyone a chance to take part.

8. Hot air balloon

Natural Feature

The Las Vegas skyline is one of the most iconic in the United States. A hot air balloon provides one of the best opportunities to enjoy the outline of Sin City, as well as the many other vistas of the Las Vegas Valley. This four-hour experience takes you hundreds of feet into the air, giving you an intimate view of Sin City and beyond. Great for small groups, friends or even a couple, the adventure includes a champagne toast and round-trip service from your hotel (not in the balloon, unfortunately).

9. Trapeze school

Anyone still dreaming of running off to the circus should be aware of this experience. The team at Trapeze Las Vegas offers 90-minute sessions that will teach you a few of the basic moves, such as the knee hang and the mid-air release-and-catch. It might not make you readily employable with Cirque du Soleil, but it will give you an insight into circus life in Las Vegas. Instructors can take students as young as three years old, making this an excellent activity for the family.

10. Wine yoga

Fitness Studio

This far-flung experience takes potential yogis to the Spring Valley neighborhood, one of the areas that Vegas visitors typically leave unexplored. The wine yoga class itself is pretty straightforward: a yoga instructor guides students towards relaxation while everyone enjoys a glass of fine wine served in a lidded glass that you are free to take home.
