Fall of Atlantis Show

The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is a world class shopping mall with its own separate entrance from the Strip and a major Las Vegas attraction in its own right. More about that later, but one part of the mall which is a must-see for your children, even if you don't have time to cover all of it, is the Fall of Atlantis Show.

After passing store after store with haute couture fashions or other exquisite but exorbitantly priced merchandise, it will be a pleasant surprise indeed to find something at the Fashion Show mall that is absolutely free! That something is the Fall of Atlantis Show! It's easy to get lost in the mall because it is so big, so use the map or ask for directions. Then look for the Cheesecake Factory and, in all probability, a big crowd gathered directly in front. They are waiting for the next enactment of the show which takes place there multiple times daily, an incredible 11-minute animatronic and pyrotechnics spectacle depicting the Fall of Atlantis!

Obviously, this trip way back in time steps away from world class shops and restaurants and a big, bustling casino makes no sense at all. At least no more sense than the statues in the show that suddenly come to life and start walking and talking, but your kids won't care. They will love the show.

Show times are Sunday through Thursday every hour on the hour from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday every hour on the hour from 11 am.to midnight. Try to arrive at least a few minutes early to secure a good viewing spot. After the show, don't leave the area without first stopping by the 50,000 gallon aquarium and, of course, the Cheesecake Factory, where the whole family can indulge in anything from a delicious dessert to a full meal. Gap Kids and H&M are also nearby in case you would like to take your kids shopping for new outfits.
