Circus Circus Vs Excalibur – Which is Better for You?

If you are planning on going to Vegas and looking for a place that may be family-friendly (where there are children), you will probably be thinking of booking a Circus or Excalibur, hoping that your kids will win. I don't hate you forever because you are dragged them to an adult-oriented place. This page will also discuss the pros and cons of these 2 Vegas resorts for adult-only visitors.

First, I have to emphasize that Las Vegas (and in particular all major resorts and casinos) is not the place I would take my kids (for reasons ranging from heavy smoke everywhere, to high levels of alcohol, i.e. related & bad behavior). However, if you really need to take your children there, then you will probably want to offer them something they will also enjoy. Therefore, of course, the budget resorts Circus Circus and Excalibur will be on the list. But … What is best for your family?

With respect to & # 39; things have to do with & # 39; for kids, Circus Circus has the best setting, thanks to its huge Adventuredome: here you have a wide range of walks that cater to all ages, from young children to teens; more complex rides are a lot of fun for adults too, and I have to admit, I would have been there all day if it wasn't for my partner who literally had to drag me. Even if you decide not to stay at Circus Circus, if you have children, you will probably want to bring them there for a fun day: they will thank you for that.

However: their pool is small and certainly does not offer a range of rides that would be ideal for children; the rooms are very clean, although I couldn't describe them as comfortable & # 39; (the mattresses were too hard); casino is depressing & # 39; in my opinion, though, to be fair, since Circus Circus is aimed at families, they may have decided that casino would not be a key factor.

Despite the Disneyesque, the appearance of Excalibur is not really suitable for children. Yes, they have a basement where children and families can find games to play together, but they certainly can't even match the great Circus Circus Adventuredome. I view Excalibur as a mediocre compromise for those looking for budget accommodation with something for children in a slightly better place than Circus & # 39; Circus. The downside, however, is their huge pool area, with a large enough section for children, with children's water slides (which can be used by adults, of course).

The rooms and corridors in Escalibur can hardly be described & # 39;: everyone smokes (well, there are non-smoker floors on the floors, mostly drunk, and wherever you go, you can smell and smoke as much as you smoke and try not to). If you do not mind your children breathing smoke, then Excalibur is worth considering by families. However, keep in mind that it is extremely noisy, with half naked girls dancing at several tables in a casino with extremely loud music and filled with drunken middle-aged men who are cheap; we were surrounded by them on the non-smoking floor & # 39; (filled with smoke).

The main positive, however, is that the Excalibur casino is undoubtedly much more fun than the Circus Circus; children are not allowed on the casino floors, but if you manage to pick up a babysitter while you want to play nearby, this casino will provide better entertainment.
