  • Mac King Comedy Magic Show

    All ages


    VIP Seat Upgrade: Free Drink & 2-for-1 Buffet Voucher

    Mac and his goldfish (don't worry, we won't spoil the surprise for you) have been renowned fixtures of the Las Vegas show circuit for over a decade and it's easy to see why. At first glance, his retro style may be off-putting, but don't be deterred by the plaid suit and bad haircut – retro doesn't mean old-fashioned, and in this case it certainly doesn’t mean boring!

  • Mystere Discount Tickets

    All ages


    Mystere is the longest running Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas and was Voted Best Family Show in Las Vegas by LasVegasKids in 2018. Mystere features breathtaking acrobatics in a show room where every seat is offers outsanding views. There are plenty of shows in Las Vegas, many are family-friendly, but few offer the quality of Mystere. We think Mystere is the best family show in Las Vegas. And for those who've never attended a Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil production, Mystere is the perfect show to begin with.
