Volcano of the Mirage Hotel
The Mirage Hotel surprises its guests with a decorative volcano, which becomes active in the evenings – it spews real smoke and even fire to the height of about 100 feet. This extraordinary show begins at 7pm and is accompanied by a special musical composition. Some people say that this highlight of the hotel was created in order to outdo the other attraction of Las Vegas – the show of dancing fountains at the Bellagio Hotel.
Fascinating dancing fountains located in front of the famous Bellagio Hotel is today one of the most popular attractions in Las Vegas. Every day, on weekdays, from 3pm, and on weekends from noon until midnight, an amazing show takes place in front of the audience, created by giant jets of water, streams of light and music.
