Circus Circus

Circus Circus

Circus Circus is a must-see stop for film buffs in Vegas, since it’s one of the most recognizable locations in Vegas. In Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Hunter S. Thompson wrote, “The Circus Circus is what the whole hep world would be doing Saturday night if the Nazis had won the war…The place is about four stories high, in the style of a circus tent, and all manner of strange Polish Carnival madness is going on up in this space.” And though the fictional “Bazooko Circus” was a stand-in for the resort in the 1998 film, it’s the flavor of the place that film lovers want to experience. You’ll recognize the midway from Diamonds are Forever, and its exterior from Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
