Add an elegant touch to your casino-themed party by serving classic cocktails and high-end appetizers such as bruschetta and crab artichoke dip. Also prepare shrimp cocktails (2) in martini glasses as well as diced cheese balls (3) decorated with olive dots on top.
A basic buffet will do if your budget is tight. Choose fried foods such as French fries, tater tots and chicken fingers before topping it off with gold-themed treats like chocolate-covered strawberries and Red Vines for an unforgettable celebration.
Buffalo Bill’s is one of the more unique casino-themed rides and attractions around, boasting both Western-themed rides as well as theme park-style ones – such as its interactive Adventure Canyon Log Flume ride where guests can shoot water at targets!
William Frederick Cody, more popularly known by his nickname Buffalo Bill, was an iconic American figure known for dramatizing the realities of Wild West with his colorful show that later became known as the Congress of Rough Riders of the World and became one of its biggest hits – making him one of the earliest global celebrities.
At this hotel, visitors can experience casino-themed rides and attractions such as the Desperado roller coaster. This hypercoaster provides thrills to both children and adults. There are also family-oriented attractions like a motion simulator and Adventure Canyon Log Flume to offer more thrilling fun for visitors staying here.
The Eiffel Tower
Gustave Eiffel’s civil engineering firm designed this iconic symbol of France for the 1889 Paris World’s Fair and constructed it using 7,300 tons of wrought iron riveted together using 2.5 million rivets – something they also did for Statue of Liberty!
Las Vegas’ Eiffel Tower provides visitors with numerous experiences, ranging from daytime visits and evening ascents under twinkling lights, to French-themed dinner and shows hosted within it. Timed tickets may even be purchased prior to your visit online to bypass ticket lines and gain priority elevator security lanes for faster ascent.
The Tower features three levels: Esplanade, Second Floor and Summit – offering restaurant offerings, champagne bar service, museum exhibits and souvenir shops, along with a recreation of Gustave Eiffel’s office on its summit. A view of Las Vegas can also be enjoyed from here; unfortunately safety mesh prevents a panoramic look at Sin City from reaching you directly.
The High Roller
A ride on The High Roller at LINQ goes beyond simply providing thrills; this colossal observation wheel containing 28 ball-shaped cabins takes passengers 550 feet above ground – offering unparalleled views of Sin City from above! From here you’ll be able to spot sunbathers tanning at Flamingo pool looking like ants during the day, or nighttime when the Bellagio fountain illuminates with brilliant color at nighttime.
Adults aged 21 and over can upgrade to Happy Half Hour for only $60 and enjoy an in-cabin bar experience during one rotation of the wheel. You’ll gain access to an exclusive cabin featuring an open bar during this round. Guests often prefer right-side cabins as these provide stunning 360-degree views of The Strip and LINQ Promenade below; though all pods offer amazing 360-degree vistas. Buying tickets in advance online can save money; evening tickets cost slightly more.
The Desperado roller coaster in Primm, Nevada stands out as a stand-out attraction on both sides of the California/Nevada border. Conceived and first operating since 1994, this ride stands among one of the tallest and fastest roller coasters worldwide with its 209-foot peak and high speeds through a tunnel at high G forces up to four. Riders experience G-forces of close to four that can truly shake their bodies!
Although the coaster lacks inversions, its thrilling speed and G-forces provide riders with plenty of excitement – much like what astronauts experience when training for space exploration missions.
This ride is open Friday through Sunday for anyone over 48 inches tall, making it a must for any roller coaster enthusiast. I first rode it when visiting Buffalo Bill’s Casino a few years ago – though since then the casino seems abandoned and Adventure Canyon Log Flume no longer features guns for its shootout ambience.
