The wildest part of Las Vegas isn't necessarily the nightlife.
Right on the Las Vegas Strip is an attraction that defines wild in Vegas in a whole new way. Welcome to Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage Hotel & Casino where white tigers and lions, leopards and dolphins enjoy the Vegas sun and a posh resort like the millions of human tourists who visit the city each year.
The facility, which opened in 1990, is the dream of legendary magicians Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn, better known to millions as Siegfried & Roy. For years the duo has worked to help save endangered animals, primarily white tigers and lions.
The Secret Garden
If you loved collecting those big, cuddly stuffed animals as a kid, then visiting the Secret Garden at the Mirage is a dream come true. Here you can see your furry friends come to life within the lush surroundings of the habitat.
The beautiful attraction displays six different showcases of white tigers and lions, as well as leopards. But the majority of these cats aren't like the typical wild animals you see.
"These are some of the most impressive cats I've ever seen," said Dave Blasko, director of animal care at The Secret Garden. "People come from all over the world to see them."
The Secret Garden stands out from other animal habitats because it features white striped tigers as well as snow white ones. With their distinctive fur color and crystal blue eyes, the cats almost seem unreal.
For more than 20 years, Siegfried and Roy dedicated their time in preserving these rare and exotic breeds. Not only does the Secret Garden preserve these animals from extinction, but visitors also have the opportunity to gain a better understanding and awareness about them.
As you meander through the habitat, you'll notice all the lush greenery, fun, jungle-themed music and even a towering lion figure made from plants. Some of the cats even have built-in waterfalls in their resting areas. You'll also discover fun facts about the animals written on plaques spread throughout the facility. For instance, female lions do most of the hunting while the male lion watches over the pride. Also, tigers actually enjoy swimming.
"Tigers are one of the few cats who like water," said Blasko.
If you want to take some of the wildlife back home with you, the gift shop at the Secret Garden offers souvenirs.
Together with its lush foliage and gorgeous waterfalls, the Secret Garden is the ideal place to visit any time of the year. With all its trees and tropical surroundings, you'll literally feel like you're in another country.
The Dolphin Habitat
Surrounded by palm trees, lush foliage and 2.1 million gallons of water, the Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage is truly an oasis on the Las Vegas Strip. Whether the bottlenose dolphins who call the habitat home are swimming, "tail walking" across water, catching fish or bonding with each other, you'll get an up-close and personal look at their fun, intriguing lifestyle.
While many people think of Sea World when they think of dolphins, many don't realize that they can see the creatures right in the midst of the Las Vegas desert. The Dolphin Habitat is a research facility and is also designed to educate people about these amazing animals. And while the dolphins don't perform on a regular schedule, visitors can still be surprised by their natural playfulness.
Exercising is also very vital to the dolphins' health. When the trainers aren't exercising or having fun with the dolphins, they conduct regular check-ups to ensure that they're healthy.
The Dolphin Habitat offers an underwater viewing area. But if you're trying to take a picture of the dolphins, it can get a little tricky. Since these dolphins are so swift and playful, you may find yourself running back and forth to capture the perfect photo.
The habitat also features shaded seating, a café and a gift shop filled with memorabilia including plush dolphin toys and even dolphin-shaped water guns.
Dolphin Habitat visitors who wish to get a little more involved with the animals can choose from a couple different programs. Painting With the Dolphins allows you to create a mammal masterpiece. Available from noon to 3:30 p.m. daily, you will get up close and personal with a dolphin as you collaborate on creating an original piece of art. Cost of $199 includes price of admission, your unique masterpiece, a certificate and a photograph of the experience.
The Trainer for a Day program, meanwhile, is an all-day activity allowing guests slip into a wetsuit and get up close to the dolphins. From 9:45 a.m. - 3:15 p.m. you will interact with and feed the dolphins while accompanied by habitat staff. A staff member will snap photos of your experience throughout this this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. At the end of the day, your photos will be put on a CD for you to take home as a one-of-a-kind souvenir. Price varies between $495 and $595 depending on the season, with a four person maximum.
Whether you come to see the dolphins or some of the rarest white tigers and lions in the world, The Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat may prove to be the wildest moment on your Vegas trip.
The Auto Collections is entertaining for car aficionados and even those who wouldn't typically give cars the time of day.
Located on the fifth level of The LINQ Resort & Casino self-parking facility, The Auto Collections showcases 300 classic cars including racing cars, muscle cars and much more. Since the exhibit is constantly changing, you'll never see the same set of cars twice.
You can buy a car here, but even if you don't have the thousands of dollars to spare, you can stand by these beauties and take as many pictures as you want. It's not every day you get to see rows and rows of Rolls Royce cars as well as old-school Ferraris, Corvettes, Impalas, Volkswagen Beetles, military vehicles and much more.
Aside from all the classic luxury cars, The Auto Collections also features military-related vehicles. The 1963 Chevrolet Nova Memorial Racecar on display is dedicated to all the fallen and living United States Marines of the Iraq war. While this car isn't for sale, a picture is priceless. Another military vehicle on display is the flat grey 1941 Willy's military jeep. Used in the military during the beginning of World War II, the jeep was restored in 1959.
If you're into racing and have $350,000 to spare, the 1986 Ford R5200 Evolution from Europe would be a fun investment. This speedster was actually banned from a rally competition in the late '80s for being too fast and dangerous. Exactly how fast are we talking about? This sleeper is capable of reaching 60 mph in a whopping 2.1 seconds.
Here you'll also find the iconic Volkswagen Beetle (better known as the "Bug"). For $45,000, you can own an award-winning (41 different awards, to be exact) red 1957 VW Beetle Ragtop. Another popular Volkswagen model on display is the baby blue 1961 Microbus Double Door Camper. Ideal for camping, this fully restored camper has maple wood interior, giving it a luxurious touch. While it's a fun road trip type vehicle, it doesn't come cheap. The fancy camper is $85,000.
If you're really ready to splurge and a Rolls Royce is the only way to go, why not go with the 1967 Rolls Royce Phantom V PV23 (James Young Limousine) for $400,000? One car, such as the 1930 Duesenberg J Murphy Town Car, is so expensive that customers would have to inquire about the price. This award-winning Town Car is only one of four that exist in the world.
Jimmy Velvet, singer and longtime friend of Elvis Presley, signs autographs and books at the Auto Collections on certain days of the week. Visitors can also watch old car commercials as well as a Johnny Carson clip in which he talks about his own classic car collection. Seating areas are available so you can rest your feet.
Before you leave, make sure to check out the gift shop. You'll find books on foreign, race, hot rod and American cars, old-school rotary phones, toy model cars, Elvis memorabilia, customized name plates and parking signs, board games and fun random trinkets.
Are you ready for a two-story Las Vegas Strip sugar rush? Hershey's Chocolate World is sure to do the trick.
The 13,000-square-foot West Coast flagship store is packed with more than 800 types of Hershey's brand products such as Hershey's chocolate bars, jumbo-sized Hershey's chocolate and strawberry syrup bottles, Reese's peanut butter cups and pieces, Ice Breakers, Jolly Ranchers and Twizzlers. Downstairs there's a colorful wall of Hershey's Kisses dispensers for your bag-filling pleasure while upstairs are different flavors of Jolly Ranchers.
Hershey's Chocolate World sells plenty of momentos and gifts, including clothing, coffee mugs and other fun items, and even has a bakery counter offering delicious freshly made treats.
While you're shopping, you'll also come across several interactive experiences. Touch screens allow you to send your friends a virtual Hershey's Kiss, view a timeline of Hershey's history, design a candy bar wrapper or discover your ideal Reese's combination of chocolate and peanut butter.
Sweet photo opportunities include an 800-pound replica of the Statue of Liberty carved from Hershey's Milk Chocolate or a replica of the Empire State Building made from 1,800 Hershey's Milk Chocolate bars.
Buckle up, hold on tight and get ready for a thrilling adventure at the motion ride in theAdventuredome. Fasten your seat belts for a wild 4-D movie ride featuring fun computerized graphics and a whole lot of shakes and bumps. This isn't your average kiddie ride, folks.
Movies change throughout the year, but visitors can currently enjoy "Happy Feet - Mumble's Wild Ride 4-D." Race down the frozen cliffs of Antarctica with Mumble and his penguin pals. Mumble's fun turns into a suspenseful chase when he comes face-to-face with his leopard seal nemesis. Still doesn’t sound like fun to you? Here’s a little secret, there’s always alcohol nearby.
Brooklyn Bowl at The LINQ Promenade isn't in the same league as other bowling alleys. One might even say this Las Vegas Strip venue throws the typical bowling alley for a curve.
It's a bowling alley. It's a concert venue. It's a restaurant. That's just how they roll.
The bowling alley features 32 Brunswick state-of-the-art lanes including huge high-def projection screens above the pins. Located adjacent to a standing-room-only concert venue, each lane accommodates up to eight bowlers at a time. Bowlers enjoy restaurant-style service at the lanes and an elevated bowlers' lounge with comfy chesterfield sofas. If you're bowling during a concert, you'll also experience live entertainment by some of the hottest bands around (show tickets must be purchased to bowl during a concert).
Brooklyn Bowl is great for families (prior to 8 p.m.), serious bowlers and the party crowd. Shoe rental is available for the tiniest of feet all the way up to size 15.
So grab your balls (get your minds out of the gutter) and come give Brooklyn Bowl a spin.
