5 Reasons Why You Should See The Mirage Volcano

The Mirage Volcano is a unique free attraction that you shouldn’t miss out on in Las Vegas. Fireballs, water, and fog are all utilized in the performance.

There are five reasons why you shouldn’t miss the Mirage Volcano experience!

1. It’s Free

The best part about this show is that it is free!

You don’t need tickets. Arrive a little early to get a good spot on the railing. The sidewalk gets crowded, especially on holidays and weekends. If you want to avoid some of the crowds, grab a spot across the street at Casino Royale.

A bonus if you’re at Casino Royale is that they have $3 beers at the bar inside. Ask for a to-go cup and enjoy an ice-cold beer during the fiery display.

2. You Can Feel The Heat

The Mirage Volcano erupts in a fiery show of power as if it’s bubbling from underneath. It is an incredible sight! But when you get up close, you will feel the heat from the fireballs!

The huge eruption at Mirage Volcano will amaze audiences of all ages.  The fireballs and water fountains seem to dance before your eyes.

The show will amaze you as it takes place against the backdrop of one of the most beautiful hotels on The Strip.

3. It’s A Great Spot For Photos And Videos

The Mirage is a picturesque spot, but it’s the perfect place to capture great photos and videos to share on your social media with the free Volcano show.

After all, what happens in Vegas ends up Instagram, right?

The show lasts about 5 minutes with a spectacular grand finale. Make sure to snap your photos quickly!

4. It’s Truly Spectacular

There are several free things to do in Las Vegas, but one thing is for certain: nothing is like seeing the Mirage Volcano erupt!

The fireballs and water, the rhythm of the soundtrack by The Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart and Indian tabla sensation Zakir Hussain, dazzles audiences every night.

5. See It From Your Room

You can book a Volcano View Room at The Mirage and watch each show from the comfort of your room. Sure, you’ll miss out on feeling the heat, but you’ll also skip out on the crowds.
