I've visited twice. In 2009 the Mrs. and I brought our then-4-year-old and his auntie. We mostly played midway games, though I did get in some slots time and enjoyed their rotating "carousel" of slot machines. Do they still have that?

In 2012, the Mrs. and I stayed at the Wynn, but walked over for some low-limit poker. We arrived at the opening of the poker room, and I won a $75 high-hand bonus with only queens full of deuces during the first hour.

I'll answer my own question. According to their website:

Play the Carousel
Las Vegas' only Circus Carousel, that actually spins while you play your favorite penny slot and watch the Circus Acts.

1st hotel I ever stayed at in Vegas
About 20 years ago
I did visit the place a few years ago since I was staying next door at Hilton Grand Vacations
I made sure to catch a free circus act. It was pretty good

First hotel I stayed at as a kid. My parents took me when I was 11.

I hadnít been back till earlier this year. I walked through and thought it was extremely depressing. And it smelled like sh**. Literally. Like there was a sewage leak or something. I left after 5 mins.

I clicked on this thread to say something similar to what you said about Circus Circus. On a Gambling website, Circus Circus "Won," as Worst Casino You Have Visited?" It was voted as Worst Casino by a landslide. If this were The Razzies, it would have "won" for "Worst Picture,"

I can't say I've stayed there but I did stay Luxor and walked down to Excalibur to play craps with friends and thought that was possibly the worst hotel/casino I'd walked into on the strip.

While I've always thought "theme" hotels were fun (i.e. Excalibur and Circus Circus) as I've gotten older they've lost their mystique on me. That and the overbearing smell of cigarette smoke makes me gag.

Everybody needs to do a bit of expectation management before going to Circus Circus. I love it there. I am so glad that they didn't tear that place down. The only problem is that it's pretty far from the Strip. If Circus Circus was on the other side of the strip (South of Mandalay Bay or Tropicana), I think it'd get more business.
