It gets hot here in Vegas. With temperatures in the triple digits, staying cool is a priority. Here, four ways to stay cool in Las Vegas.
Cool water on a hot summer day and a kiss from a dolphin create a dream come true for Trainer For A Day participants at Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage. The program provides guests with the unforgettable experience of working alongside animal experts in the daily care and training of a family of bottlenose dolphins. Are you a feeding FIN-atic? If so, the Animal Encounters program at Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay will satisfy your need to feed. The experience takes guests behind the scenes to assist in feeding the attraction’s most-admired residents including stingrays, green sea turtles and zebra sharks.
Always in search of that next adrenaline rush? El Loco at The Adventuredome at Circus Circus is a gravity-defying coaster that leaves riders screaming for more with its unique negative G drops and over-the-edge twists and turns. This new thrill-a-second coaster is housed inside a five-acre theme park that stays a comfortable 72 degrees year round while the temp outside continues to rise. As soon as you catch your breath, head down The Strip to The Roller Coaster at New York-New York for another chance to throw your hands in the air and scream your lungs out. Guests experience exhilarating twists, loops and drops while reaching a maximum speed of 67 mph.
Step into a frozen wonderland in the desert at Minus5 Ice Bar at Mandalay Bay or Minus5 Ice Bar at Monte Carlo. Parkas, gloves and boots are mainstays in these interactive lounges made entirely of ice. Upon arrival guests are served ice glasses filled with exotic cocktails and are invited to relax on ice couches surrounded by intricately handcrafted ice sculptures, all in a cool minus five degrees Celsius environment.
Why cool down with an ice cube or two when you can touch an iceberg? Yes, an iceberg in the desert! Become a passenger and experience the story of the R.M.S. Titanic at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition inside Luxor Hotel and Casino where a real piece of ice stands as a replica of the iceberg that sent the ill-fated ship to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean. The exhibit also is home to authentic artifacts, dramatic room recreations and hands-on interactive experiences.
