Mirage Tips (10)

Lions and tigers and dolphins

Favorite thing The Mirage has several visit worthy live animal attractions. In addition to the white tigers and the secret garden of Seigfried and Roy, the Mirage also has the dolphin habitat. The dolphins are kept in a large (2.5 million gallon/9.5 million liter) saltwater tank. Like the Secret Garden, the attraction charges a fee.

See the Mirage. Completed in...

Favorite thing See the Mirage. Completed in 1989, the Mirage was the first new hotel built on the Strip since 1973. The owner decided against neon in favor of plating the entire front with 24-carat gold stripes. The construction cost of $620 million was a risky gamble even by Las Vegas standards. In order to pay its way, the Mirage would need to make a clear $1 million profit DAILY from its gaming tables. The fact that it succeeded transformed the city. The Mirage has a tropical theme, complete with an erupting volcano out front. It erupts with cascades of water and flame every 15 minutes at night until midnight. When you walk into this hotel, you enter into a luxurious domed atrium with lush gardens. A massive thatched roof shelters the hotel's registration area. There's also a huge fish tank with small sharks and stingrays. The hotel is also famous for the Siegfried and Roy Show. These illusionists have white tigers which you can see for free behind a glassed-in environment when they aren't performing. The Siegfried and Roy Magic Show is one of the most popular in town. Tickets are around $90. (702)792-7777. This photo-postcard was sent to me by a friend and she labeled the room where she had stayed in. :-) To the right side of the pic is part of the volcano

Siegfried & Roy Statue

Favorite thing Legendary magicians Siegfried & Roy, masters of impossible, who proved that magic does work in Las Vegas.

Their shows featured spectacular illusions involving wild animals, including their signature white tigers, and ushered in an era of family-friendly entertainment in Las Vegas .

Fondest memory They had performed more than 5,700 times in Las Vegas.

Opened in 1997, the Secret Garden & Dolphin's Habitat at the Mirage gives tourists a glimpse in the amazing world of the Siegfried & Roy animal family.

bring your walking shoes

Favorite thing These hotel casinos are HUGE and while they are located adjacent to one another you will be walking much longer than you expected. Be sure to Use the free Monorail between the Mirage and Treasure Island

Home of the white tigers

Favorite thing Visit the Mirage. In the lobby you can see the white tigers of Sigfried and Roy behind huge glas windows. In a pool they have dolphins. But the biggest attraction is the artificial volcano in front of the hotel directly at the strip. At night every 15 minutes this mountain erupts. This photo on the left was taken with the volcano in the background on New Year´s Eve.

Pampering yourself

Favorite thing When I last visited Las Vegas, I stayed at the Mirage. It´s service and staff were just wonderful. Don´t forget the animals they offer you to visit.
I also watched the Siegfried and Roy show, but I am not sure if it´s still available after the accident....

Fondest memory I won the total expenses for this trip in one of the casinos:-) this is what I miss most!
So anyone travelling to Las Vegas, don´t forget to try your luck.

Statue of Siegfried and Roy

Favorite thing The statue of Siegfried, Roy and one of their famous white tigers outside the Mirage Hotel, stands in honor of the famous performers and the popular long running show which had been performed at the Mirage. I was told that the statue predates the unfortunate injury to Roy Horn who was mauled by a white tiger before a live audience. Miraculously, he survived, but the show was permanently closed. But the statue's presence seems to have a more somber significance after that tragic accident.

Check out all the casinoes. ...

Favorite thing Check out all the casinoes. It's not enough to cruise the streets. Each casino is different and if you don't checkout the interior, you're apt to miss some things.

Fondest memory Seeing the dolphins in Mirage's Dolphin Sanctuary. There are baby dolphins as well as adults.
