Questions and comments
3 of us are traveling to Las Vegas in August, is it cheaper to buy show tickets online or when there?
The basic rule is buying online before you get to Vegas is mostly the best option for getting discounted show tickets but there are no guarantees. Simple reason for this is because, like the airlines, Vegas shows need to fill a good portion of each night's performances as quickly as possible to at least reach a break-even point, and feel financially secure. This is where the Vegas show tickets discounters come, reduce the ticket prices and sell as much as possible and this is generally done online on websites such as Vegas.com (who we sell show tickets with). After break-even is reached, show ticket prices begin to rise which means if you want until you arrive in Vegas to buy a ticket you'll likely pay more. Our advice, buy your show tickets now.
We're a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 kids who are all under 8. Las Vegas show tickets can be costly for a large family. What's the best way to get cheap las vegas show tickets
I feel your pain but fortunately you've got some good options. If your travel schedule is flexible take your Las Vegas vacation during the off peak season which is most dates in late April, early May, September, November and December. Going any other time will likely mean higher show ticket prices as there a more visitors demanding a fixed number of show seats.
Steer clear of most Cirque du Soleil shows, the exception being Mystere, which is pretty much always very competitively priced.
Some great Las Vegas family shows normally under $60 per ticket are Mystere, Popovich Comedy Pet Theater, Blue Man Group, Ka by Cirque du Soleil, Mac King, Nathan Burton and Adam London (both under $20 per ticket), Jeff Civillico, V-Ultimate Variety Show, and Murray The Magician (under $30).
