It’s a fact— Las Vegas gets hot. In the summers, it is common to see temperatures reach triple digits for multiple days in a row, which makes being outside quite challenging. But not to fear, Vegas is perfectly equipped to handle the hot days, with amazing indoor activities in Las Vegas to keep you cool and free from sun-stroke. We’ve put together our list of the twelve best indoor activities to escape the desert heat.
The Wreck Room
Let’s be honest, the stifling summer heat in Vegas is probably making you go crazy! Take out your frustrations in The Wreck Room, where you can swing out your aggression in an air-conditioned room while destroying bottles, VHS tapes and other breakable items. You’ll be able to cool off both mentally and physically!
Step inside an air-conditioned bulldozer in a giant sandbox for adults! You’ll enjoy cooling off while learning how to use these construction machines from a trained professional and challenging yourself with various digging tasks. You’ll be having so much fun you’ll forget about the sweltering day outside. Book Now >>
Nothing is cooler than enjoying an Afternoon tea with your best friends. There are multiple restaurants that not only provide comfortable indoor temperatures but also a luxurious foodie experience. Top picks include the Tea Lounge Waldorf Astoria, Petrossian Bar at Bellagio and Café Lola in Summerlin. Pinkies up!
Cool Off with an Adult Beverage
There’s no better way to quench your thirst from the Vegas heat than with an ice-cold cocktail. While there are plenty of bars to choose from, why not go for a more unique option, such as the tropical Golden Tiki or a trendy Speakeasy like Laundry Room!
If you’re in need of some intense cooling off, go straight for indoor skydiving! You won’t be sweating from the nerves of jumping out of a plane. Instead, you’ll float off the ground from the intense (and cold) wind from the floor beneath you.
Speed Around in a Luxury Car
Nothing quite cools you off like a state-of-the-art air conditioning unit inside of a luxury car. Sign up for the Richard Petty Driving Experience, where you can test drive a Ferrari or Lamborghini while enjoying the cool interiors of these world-class vehicles.
Check Out Some Art
One of the best parts about art galleries (aside from the actual art) is that they are notoriously cold! The hotels and casinos on the Strip invest a lot of money into having world class art galleries and offer the perfect place to escape the heat. We recommend the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art or The Gallery at Aria—but make sure to bring a sweater, because it won’t take long before you’re feeling chilly again.
Go Underwater at an Aquarium
Mandalay Bay is home to the Shark Reef Aquarium, where you can walk amongst piranhas, sharks and a shipwreck. There’s also a touch pool for a chance to meet stingrays and crabs. Sticking with its predator theme, there are even some additional rooms to come face to face with a Komodo Dragon and a Burmese Python!
Have a CSI Experience
Help solve a staged murder mystery at CSI: The Experience. You and your group will be tasked with solving a murder on a time limit and get to work in air-conditioned lab stations to match DNA, examine bullet casings and put those forensic science skills to the test.
Get Zen With Dolphin Yoga
Escape the heat and channel your inner yogi in the Mirage’s underwater viewing area. There you can participate in a relaxing vinyasa yoga class with your dolphin friends right beside you.
Watch Real-Life Mermaids
In Vegas, casinos go big. So is the case with the Silverton Casino Hotel, who not only have a massive indoor aquarium in the centre of the casino floor, but also have mermaids swimming inside with the tropical fish. This 117,000-gallon aquarium will most definitely help you cool off!
Learn Something New
Sign yourself up for a class and be trained by a master in Vegas. You can learn to make paella or tapas at a cooking class at Jaleo, located in the Cosmopolitan, become a mixologist at The Wynn or channel your inner acrobat at the Cirque SPARK session run by Cirque du Soleil performers.
With plenty of indoor activities to choose from, there never is a bad time of year to come to Vegas. Book now and start planning your next trip to Las Vegas!
