Circus Circus Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Unless you are in Las Vegas or follow the history of the town closely, you may not have realized that Circus Circus just recently celebrated its 50th anniversary last week. Called by some today as a cash cow, the resort is for families on a budget. It is one of the most affordable options for someone staying on the Las Vegas Strip.

Today, one of the big appeals of Circus Circus is the Adventuredome. It’s an indoor amusement park that includes over 20 rides. In the past, this month, the name of the amusement park would be changed in the month of October to Fright Dome. The original name before it was called the Adventuredome was the Grand Slam Canyon.

For people who want to go back to the past on the food side, arguably the biggest food draw of Circus Circus is The Steakhouse. It has been a longstanding steak restaurant on the Vegas Strip for over 30 years.
