Mac King

So far you might think that Harrah's doesn't offer a whole lot for kids to do, but when you discover the entertainment options, you will change your mind. Harrah's currently offers three long-running shows that the whole family will enjoy. At least one of them, the Mac King Comedy and Magic Show, is such a big hit with kids, it belongs on any family's Vegas vacation must do list, whether you are staying at Harrah's or not.

The one man Mac King Comedy and Magic Show has been performing to a packed house at Harrah's five times a week for what seems like an eternity. Even if you have seen this show before, it is so entertaining you won't mind seeing it again, and your kids will love it, too, as it is one of the few truly kid-friendly shows in Vegas. Show times are Tuesday through Saturday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Mac King is a very funny guy with an engaging personality that children take to readily. Your youngsters will be amazed when he pulls off stunts like making a live goldfish appear on someone's head, for example. Even if your kids are very young, you don't have to worry because the show is squeaky clean and yet thoroughly entertaining. The Dallas Morning News rated it "the best magic show in Vegas."

While the show is worth the $35.15 (plus taxes and fees) that the Harrah's website states as the cost, you don't have to pay that much. In fact, if you are a rated player, you can probably get at least two tickets for free. The hotel might also offer a coupon booklet to registered guests with free or discounted tickets. Or use the coupons in Las Vegas magazines or online or stop by Tix4Tonite where the cost is a little over half price.
