No doubt they'd love to zipline, provided it reopens.

Neon boneyard & Mob museum. Plan ahead. They have discounts when purchasing both.

Fremont Street buskers can be entertaining in an absurd sort of way.

There is (was?) a place at Fashion Show mall that taught most casino table games. It’s fake gambling - no cash - so probably no minimum age. Don’t know the cost though.

Good list so far !

Absolutely positively add...

- MAC KING's afternoon show at HARRAH's to the list, assuming it is open when you visit.

and also perhaps:

- RED ROCK Canyon

- POOLS

- ALL DAY PASS for NYNY Coaster have been available on myVegas.

- Maybe one of the CHEAPIE SHOWS at Miracle Mile Shops

- LEGENDS ( now at Tropicana I think )

- MOVIES: some casinos have Theatres inside

- BEATLES LOVE if your wallet is thick enough

I’m going with my 3 kids next month and I’m excited to go to Area 15. I’m nervous that no one mentioned it. Hopefully there’s nothing wrong with it.

Why? What do you expect to see in Area 15 that is so exciting?

Will you also visit Devil's Tower in Wyoming with the expectation of having a close encounter of the third kind?

I have been a senior scientist in nuclear weapons programs and in U.S. intelligence agencies. I have never had direct knowledge of Area 15 specifically but I think its preposterous that any sober person could believe there is alien technology there. There must be 7 or 8 completely plausible military/governmental functions for a restricted-access area such as Area 15 without making up some earth-shattering adolescent fantasy about bug-eyed aliens from outer space.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

I think there may be some confusion between Area 15 and Area 51.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Area 15 is not Area 51.
I've taken the ride up to Rachael and I don't think it is worth the trip. The Alien Inn is a dump with bad food and expensive trinkets.
I've heard mostly good things about Area 15, but it apparently can get expensive very quickly.

I’m planning on it costing about the same as a day at Disneyland.
