Marvel Avengers Station

Las Vegas - Marvel Avengers Station My daughter and I are fans of everything Marvel. We both enjoyed the comics growing up and we watched every Marvel Universe movie that came out.

So we were thrilled to find out about Marvel Avengers Station located inside Treasure Island in Las Vegas.

The exhibit was touted as an interactive experience, so our expectations were high.

Battlefield Vegas

Battlefield Vegas - WeaponsI never touched a real firearm – or even came close to one – in my life. I don't think kids' toys count.

So I was intrigued when I heard about Battlefield Vegas. Here is a chance to try my hand on shooting a gun without committing to buying anything.

KA by Cirque Du Soleil

Cirque Du Soleil - KA - Forest Duet - Photo by Jerry MetellusKA by Cirque Du Soleil is probably the biggest theatrical production in the world with the latest audio/visual technology. 
The show is a clever mix of traditional circus acts with modern technology with a storyline. The story is not clearly defined because the actors use an invented language. But that doesn’t take away from the wonderful production and amazing feats performed in a fluid environment.

There is no traditional stage in this theater. Instead, several floating platforms move around the stage in all directions including straight up – allowing total impression into fantastical environments. In one scene I felt like I was immersed in the ocean trying to reach the surface.

“O” a Cirque Du Soleil Show

“O” a Cirque Du Soleil Show

This is not your average circus act. From the first opening moment of the show, I was enthralled with the man-made lake on the stage and the enchanted creatures that lurk in every corner. 

Like any circus act, it has its share of high-flying acrobats, contortionists, balancing acts, gravity-defying swings and clowns. But “O” manages to merge those traditional acts with the exotic element of aquatic magic to produce something totally new and awe-inspiring. 

Dig This Las Vegas

null I heard about this place from a friend and at first, I was reluctant to go. Do I really want to go play in the dirt again?

It turned out that I actually do. It was great fun to learn how to operate a huge excavator and proceed to dig a big hole in the ground.  

We started with instructions at the office. The staff were very friendly and informative. Once everyone learned the dos and don’ts we headed out to the big dirt field and mounted our excavators. Once we were in, we received additional hands-on instructions through radio headsets.
