Las Vegas's Most Popular Casinos

No. 20 Circus Circus Hotel & Casino
A longtime favorite of families and travelers on a budget, Circus Circus got a recent boost from a series of renovations, including 2012’s new rooms. Kids love the five-acre Adventuredome theme park for rides like a double-loop, double-corkscrew roller coaster. The animated Chuck Jones Experience shows more than 250 drawings and paintings by the Looney Tunes animator; reality film rides are broadcast in the FX Theatre; and you can try your luck at four casinos. Most gamers here are parents who want to get a half-hour of play in while their kids are on a ride. In other words, if you’re looking for cheap games, this casino is for you.
The Buzz: Circus Circus contains some of the most overlooked but delightful features of the Strip, including the carnival-like Midway, where you can win prizes at one of more than 200 games, and a snack bar that rotates above the casino floor.
