10 AdventureDome Tips

1. Same money with All Day Passes

With over 17 rides AdventureDome will keep your kids busy most of the day, but paying per-ride adds up. For example, indivdual Coaster Rides are $12 each, these include Canyon Blaster (48" minimum) and El Loco (also 48" minimum). Premium Rides are $8 each and no doubt you and the kids will ride at least a couple of the seven available.

Save money buying an All Day Ride Pass rather than paying per ride. An All Day Regular Pass is $29.95 (48 inches tall or taller) and an All Day Junior Pass is $17.95 (Under 48 inches tall). Note that all riders 33" and over must have a ride ticket. AdventureDome hours vary but it normally opens at 10 am and closes at midnight. Mini Golf is also offered at AdventureDome for $6 per child, it's not included in the All Day Pass.

If you're a Nevada resident, from anywhere within the Silver State, just break out your state issued identification card and receive $2 off any AdventureDome All Day Pass. Save, rejoice and ride rollercoasters!


2. Plan on lines

Summer's busy at the AdventureDome. Those visiting during that season should plan on alloting extra time queuing up for rides, especially for premium rides and the uber popular rollercoasters. It's not such a bad idea to stash a few snacks in your pockets/handbags to munch on while waiting.

3. Bungee and rock wall climbing

If you're not into rides, or have had your fill of them, try the $10 combo for a bungee and rock wall climbing...and when you're bored of climbing walls head over to the arcade for some Street Fighter or Tekken.

4. Prepare for the leaky dome

We're not advocating that you bring a rain coat to the AdventureDome but do be prepared for a drip of rainwater or two leaking from the dome on a rainy day. Luckly however, it rarely rains at the desert city of Las Vegas so we think you'll be safe on this...

5. Arty type in the family?

Not everyone likes rides or arcades or or or. If you're not a rollercoaster person Try face painting at the Midway level, or learn to make balloon animals.

6. Help for family sherpas

What's in your bag? Loads of stuff? If you've been assigned the role of family sherpa then a $1 locker may just be music to your ears. Unload anything that's not valuable and be free...!

7. Fun for tots

The big rides aren't appropriate for your little ones, not to mention they'll probably not meet the minumum height requirement. Little tots will enjoy the SpongeBob 4D movie and Frog Hopper are highly rated

8. AdventureDome has a reputation for being a bit outdated

The AdventureDome isn't located in one of the newer fancy Vegas resorts, it's within the Circus-Circus hotel which was built in 1968, though AdventureDome is a much newer addition. This said, both the hotel and AdventureDome could use a touch up and they both have a reputation for being a bit outdated. But don't let this deter you, AdventureDome is a fun attraction for the family.

9. Keep an eye on the little ones

AdventureDome can get packed with children and it's easy to loose track of your own. Keep an eye out and always start the day with a meeting point within the dome in case someone gets lost.

10. Getting hungry? Don't eat inside the dome

You're sure to work up an appetite after a long day at AdventureDome. Food inside the dome is the typical theme park fare. It's not highly rated and it's expensive. Plan on stepping into the casino area for a meal, it's cheaper.
