    This is a beautiful place. So different from what I’m used to. A nice scenic 1 way drive with lots of pullouts and wide enough you can let others pass. It looks like a perfect hiking area bit at 43+ temps was far too hot for us to hike. We did do a brief walk to the petroglyphs and enjoyed a quick walk. We rented a car from the Flamingo hotel on Vegas strip and drove out. Perfect morning activity to do. Highly recommend.

    Celebrate Grandson's 21st Birthday. Enjoyed Las Vegas and celebrated with the family. The family enjoyed all the entertainment which was available to us.

    Don't miss the Hoover Dam on your road trip to or from the Grand Canyon. This awe-inspiring structure is a testament to human engineering. A great place to stop for a good view is the Mike O'Callagan Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge Plaza. Lots of parking spaces here, though there's a separate toll to enter the area. Stretch your legs on the short 10min walk to the middle of the viewing bridge overlooking the Dam, snap some photos, and soak up the birds eye views before continuing your adventure. The bridge is even accessible with a huge ramp up to the top, just be prepared that it may be too much for those unsteady on their feet or for those afriad of heights. But we think it's a perfect stop on your journey!

    Great way to see the entire strip and the surrounding LV area. Would recommend going day or night to take it all in. All 'rides' were closed during our visit so definitely looking forward to going back!

    The staff were all super friendly and patient. My wife and I were able to operate an excavator! Like anything, there is a bit of a learning curve. By the end of the session, I felt pretty good about our new skill and my wife was able to cross another thing off her bucket list. My only word of advice would be to double-check the address before going, as Uber may want to take you to their old location.

    Great experience in general. The museum, guides, gift store, and artifacts are amazing. The tour guides and staff were super awesome. But my main complaint is about the amount of fog in the actual museum made by the fog machine - which does makes it difficult to breathe, and it also made my eyes super itchy.

    So I can understand why people faint at the museum - it’s probably a mixture of anxiety and choking on the fog. The artifacts and different rooms are super cool, we booked our tour in advance for a 6pm RIP Access Tour and there was no line at all when we went on a Saturday.

    I did ask some questions about some of the random objects that I thought were really cool at the museum, and the tour guide didn’t know anything about which was a little disappointing. But these were not technically artifacts so it makes sense that they didn’t know about them.

    I could’ve spent the entire day reading all the plaques and information, definitely a fun experience!

    Amazing 3 day NHRA event! It is important to bring sun screen, 64oz insulated water bottle, hat, and jacket because the wind picks up, and it cools down quickly as the shade sets in later in the day. At 66 degrees, you will get a sunburn. The reserved seating area has easy access to rest rooms as well as food and beverage options. There are plenty of golf carts available to take those with mobility issues from the gate to the stands.

    When trail reports said it is a hard hike I didn't believe it.
    It was definitely a challenging hike. You cannot get down and up without using ropes.
    We did scrape ourselves up a bit on the rock so I would recommend wearing gloves, long sleeves and pants for the ropes. Hot springs were awesome.

    I’m extremely difficult to impress but went to the show for my husband since he likes magic shows. I was absolutely floored, impressed is an understatement we were thoroughly entertained. Presentation and entertainment was extraordinary.
    Thank you can’t wait to see your show again!

    Terrific hike offering beautiful desert scenery and the vivid colors of Red Rock Canyon. This hike takes effort, but the rewards are great. Moderately strenuous with some rock scrambling in parts. You need good hiking shoes and make sure to have a hat and water. The trail is not easy to follow at time and you would benefit from having a downloaded map on an App like AllTrails. I would also avoid hiking here after it has rained as the rocks would be slippery and treacherous. At the end of the trail before turning around, you will find a panoramic view of the valley and Vegas in the distance. However, it is tricky to reach this viewpoint as the trail really disappears and you need to negotiate some narrow paths with a drop off. Not for the faint hearted.

    Piff and his team were absolutely brilliant, funny, entertaining and the magic was out of this world. Thoroughly enjoyed the show and although it was an hour and a half long, it went by so quickly. I would not hesitate to book this show, the team and Mr Piffles the chihuahua even came out for free photos after the show. Well worth a visit.

    Absolutely brilliant experience, highly recommend. My husband and I were looking for a shooting experience for our Vegas trip & we're sooo glad that we chose this one.

    It was really easy to book from the UK & the live chat answers any questions you may have.

    If you choose a package that's $100 or more you get a free Uber to and from the location which is great especially when you're not familiar with Vegas.

    After our Uber we completed the required security & then met Chris. He was fab, professional, calm, friendly. Everything you want when dealing with live ammunition.

    You get to choose your weapons. We did the hat trick package so had a hand gun, machine gun & sniper, very cool.

    Safety was paramount throughout but my partner was encouraged to take photos and videos which are great memories. We also got to to take home the shooting a target.

    Before booking this I saw others that take the full day but time I precious in Vegas so this was perfect. Couldn't recommend more, a highlight of our holiday.

    Place was a absolute blast. Corey (the owner, I believe) was fun and inviting in getting us geared up and then letting us rage in the room. Wasn't sure what to expect - thought maybe it would be anti-climatic after a minute or two. I was wrong. Was fun and tiring.

    We attended Machine Guns Vegas on Friday March 29th. Initially we chose to go to this Gun Range based on a recommendation from a friend but I would also add that my enquiries which were taken by Amanda Hill were handled quickly and in a very helpful and accomodating manner. I am a Licenced Shooter in Australia so I had plenty of experience with this environment but the 4 others who were with me had limited or no experience and I have to say the manner in which the Team at MGV looked after us, including Amanda and our Range Officer was exceptional. Everything about MGV speaks of professionalism. There is a massive selection of firearms to experience. Everything is exceptionally clean and tidy and the manner with which our Range Officer worked with us was superb. This was a very memorable and fabulous experience and as you can imagine, I would have no hesitation in recommending MGV as a must do when in Vegas. Thank you to Amanda and also our Range Officer (whose name I do not recall). Lifelong Memories - Still buzzing about that 50 Cal :)
