Fun and Unique Activities
in Las Vegas
Las Vegas, often dubbed as the “Entertainment Capital of the World,” is a city that never fails to amaze visitors with its boundless entertainment options. While the famous Las Vegas Strip is known for its vast amount of shows, casinos, and extravagant nightlife; the city is also host to a plethora of uncommon activities that are as unique as they are exceptional. Beyond the city’s more conventional experiences lies a treasure trove of unique and offbeat activities that cater to a diverse range of interests. In this blog, we will detail a few of the many quirky adventures you can engage in while in the city.
Venture away from the Strip to the old school downtown area and discover the Neon Boneyard Museum. This fascinating outdoor exhibition pays homage to Las Vegas’ iconic neon signs. The premises consist of a 2-acre graveyard that features retired neon signs showcases. Guided tours are provided that will lead visitors through a maze of neon wonders, each with its own story and connection to the city’s past. This one of a kind museum is not only a great photo opportunity but also a way to transport yourself into Las Vegas’s good old glory days.
If you’ve ever dreamed of operating heavy machinery, Dig This will turn your fantasies into reality. Situated just minutes away from the Strip, this unique attraction allows visitors to operate bulldozers, excavators, and other heavy construction equipment. With expert guidance, you can navigate through fun real world construction tasks along with different games and challenges. A few scenarios of obstacles you may encounter include (but are not limited to): digging, scooping, playing excavator basketball, and pushing gigantic tires. Luckily you do not need any prior experience with heavy equipment and the vast amount of activities allows for the enjoyment of all different personality types. Dig This is an adrenaline-pumping experience that appeals to adventure seekers and those seeking a novel way to release some stress.
For gaming enthusiasts and retro aficionados, the Pinball Hall of Fame is an absolute must-visit. This museum is home to one of the largest collections of pinball machines in the world. Once you take a step into the vastly large arcade, you are greeted with an exciting atmosphere filled with all the lights, sounds, and comradery created by the rows and rows of diverse arcade machines. These machines range from vintage classics to modern gems. The best part? All the machines are playable and well maintained by a knowledgeable staff who are more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Last but not least, all the money you spend goes to various charities, making it an all around feel-good experience.
Escape rooms are a fantastic option for visiting Las Vegas because they offer an immersive and interactive experience that complements the city’s reputation for entertainment and excitement. The experience of an escape room is the perfect getaway from the casinos and clubs that Vegas is usually known for. You and your friends and/or family will get the chance to experience working together as a team in a unique and exciting scenario. The whole escape room experience is great for spending valuable time with others as you are proactively involved with mind bending interactive features which keep everyone actively engaged in the game. Whether you’re a seasoned escape room enthusiast or a first-timer, Las Vegas boasts a diverse selection of themed escape rooms, each with its own set of challenges and surprises. Luckily, for those still wanting to experience a little of the Las Vegas fun, there are a few escape rooms in town that have themes based around the city such as casino rooms or mafia rooms. At Escapeability we offer a team vs team room “The Casino Takeover” that is both 1940’s mafia themed as well as casino themed.
