Vegas Uncovered a guide to the Las Vegas Strip

Excalibur, Las Vegas 24 hour bargain buffet pass $25

As well as offering some of the best value rooms in Las Vegas form as low as $24 per night, Excalibur have a new for a mere $25 only $7 more than a standard dinner buffet at Excalibur and less than the cost of a dinner buffet at say Mandalay Bay or Bellagio. This deal is open tyo everyone you do not have to be a guest at the Excalibur. If you play it cleverly you can get 4 meals out of your pass, if you have a late Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner when you purchase the pass and then have the same meal but at an earlier time the next day, for example on day one have breakfast at 10am, then lunch at say 3pm and dinner at 8pm and then breakfast the following day at 9am this will work out at $6.25 per meal on top of this you can of course pop in when you feel like it for a snack of soda !!!

Not only do you get up to 4 meals for $25 you also get a VIP line pass meaning that you will not be standing in line but eating. The all you can eat buffet pass can be purchased from the roundtable cashier.

The Excalibur Buffet does have a slightly bad press but in my experience this is unfair I have eaten there several times and whilst you are not getting the same level of food or service as you do at say Mandalay Bay or Mirage but the food is edible, there is a good choice and it’s always hot. Some people complain that you have to get your own drinks but this for me is actually better as you don’t have to wait for refills, the choice of drinks is very good and by serving myself I can make some interesting combinations. The buffet sometimes includes Tom Turkey and Prime Rib, the breakfast buffet at the roundtable is my favourite sitting as well as the normal American favourites it includes a good choice of Mexican breakfasts and has my wife’s all time favourite eggs Benedict.

All in all this is a very good deal and is the first step in being able to compile an accurate rate of costs before you go to Las Vegas well done Excalibur let us wait and see who follows. This is a true Las Vegas bargain and will I am sure in time be up there with the legendary Ellis Island Steak Special.

Circus Circus, Las Vegas My Review

2880 Las Vegas Boulevard South
Las Vegas
NV 89109
+1 (702) 734 0410
CircusCircus Las Vegas

Location Circus Circus is at the very North end of the Strip, a fair walk from the major new and more exciting casinos. Travelling by foot at night particularly if you go North, can feel uneasy.

Theme Well I guess you have already spotted this, nestling at the very North end of the Strip a 200 ft neon clown; yup it’s the Circus. The main casino structure is in the form of a giant big top and all the buildings have red and white stripes down them, you can see what they are getting at. The main casino continues this OTT theme with circus acts, swinging from trapezes or walking over tightropes 40 ft above you head. I am sure I saw a few clowns around both in and out of costume.

Attractions Circus Circus opened in 1968. It was the first casino aimed at the family market, so as you can imagine there are loads of attractions with many of them aimed at the little ones. Adventuredome including Grand Slam Canyon is now the only theme park available to the public on the Strip; MGM Grand has gone corporate hire only. This has rollercoaster’s, log flumes and all the usual thrill rides you would find elsewhere. All contained in a climate controlled massive glass dome. It represents great value at $16 for all rides all day. On the midway section (above the main casino floor) there is a state of the art video arcade as well as many fairground type stalls where you can win cuddly toys and the like. The centre stage gives free performances all day from 11am to midnight featuring animals, magicians, jugglers and the like, it’s free and there is never more than 30 minutes between performances. Hacket’s bungee jump also gives you the chance to jump from about 200 foot up with only an oversized rubber band to prevent you becoming pavement pizza.

Pool The pool is small and in a parking lot, it has horrible Circus Circus sun umbrellars and is full of screaming kids.

Shows and Entertainment Circus Circus is home to the largest permenant Circus in the world and they preform acts above the casino floor (see the James Bond film Diamonds are Forever), there is no actual showroom here and no shows ! There is the adventuredome but no proper shows, guess the kiddies would have to be cared for.

Dining Well the Circus Circus buffet is probably the most famous on the Strip, it is advertised everywhere as the cheapest on the strip and as feeding more mouths than any other. These are two facts that are most likely accurate, with dinner at just $11.99 lunch $10.99 and breakfast a mere $9.99 they are going to feed loads of people. The food is best described as boring and bland, I won’t go any further than that. Reviews I have read in several places made me decide to eat elsewhere. The food cannot be that bad though or it would not get the custom it does. The fact it has some of the longest dining queues in Vegas makes eating here is no quick deal. Circus Circus also houses a selection of fast food joints including McDonalds, Circus Pizzeria, a couple of Deli’s and a 24-hour coffee shop. Surprisingly Circus Circus also has two more up market restaurants Stivali (Italian) and The Steak House which is consistently voted the best in Vegas and friends that have eaten there feel its earn’t its accolade


Gaming Circus Circus actually has two casinos so far apart that a monorail joins them. In total there is 110,979 sq ft of gaming space, which has crammed in it nearly 3000 slot and video poker machines, about 70- tables and 7 roulette wheels. This is very much a low rollers joint and has stacks of nickel machines and table minimums of about $2, unlike other Strip casinos there are loads of these low stake tables. The skyrise casino is quite small but is quieter, less smoky and has less children in it than the main casino but no circus acts to watch as you wait for the change woman to get round to you. The service level you receive here is not as good as many other casinos on the Strip as it is aimed at low rollers and you get treated that way. The main casino is very smoky and this can not be good for the hoards of noisy, excited and badly behaved children that are everywhere. It has also been reported (though I haven’t seen it) that this casino is the chosen resort of the more unsavoury types who travel up from LA on US public holidays. Noticing that even the arcade has airport type metal detectors at the entrance there is probably some truth in this.


Drinks service
Forget it. We were there 3 hours and never got a drink. Don’t know I they are just stingy or are worried that a “minor” will steal it when you are not looking.

Overall Circus Circus is aimed at families and budget travellers and accordingly is exceptional value, you get a lot of facilities for the price. You do however pay for this by having to put up with hundreds of children and a very poor location. This is the entry level casino of the Circus Circus group which includes Mandalay Bay, Luxor and Excalibur. There are many far nicer places than this on the Strip, which will give you exactly the same odds.

Good points Um… very tricky. Guess it must be that there is a very large selection of nickel machines and that my sister hit a jackpot here. Rooms are also very cheap.

Bad points Equally hard. Either the terrible location or the clientele

Top Tip Pay and extra $5-$10 a night and stay at Excalibur, if you have to stay here make sure that you stay in a tower and not in the motor lodge rooms.

Las Vegas with 6 teens – Trip Review

Traciee Dee wrote this trip report after travelling to Vegas with 6 teenagers and very kindly gave me permission to post this on my Blog. I know that many people emailing about travelling to Vegas with minors and this will hopefully give you an insight from someone who has actually done it. What makes her report unique is that she actually writes it from a unbiased point of view being a frequent visitor to Vegas accompanied only by her husband this time she could see it very differently and writes without the biased often seen by people who take children to Vegas.

“I know there is much controversy about kids/teens in Vegas so I thought I would put in my 2 cents after our trip.

“My husband and I go to Vegas two or three times a year, quick 2 night trips and we always have a lot of fun and enjoy ourselves. We start early and usually are wiped out by 10:30pm as we maybe had our first Bloody Mary at 8am. We have never brought the kids before this trip.

Long story short, due to teen schedules and life getting in the way our original summer vacation plans had to be scrubbed and we had to coordinate a quick trip before school starts on Monday. Kids wanted to go to Vegas and just walk the strip and go inside all the casinos. My husband and I were traveling with 4 girls 15-17 and two boys 18-19. Three were mine, 3 were friends.

We spent one night in Laughlin then a day at Cottonwood Cove where we rented a boat which was a blast. Drove to Vegas and spent two nights at Circus Circus. We stayed in the West Tower which had been redone and the rooms were quite nice. We got a deal which included a $10 hotel credit, two for one buffet (did not use) and 2 for 1 Mexitalia which was quite good and coupons for Adventuredome. Kids enjoyed the Adventuredome and I did not think Circus Circus was near as bad as the reviews I had read. That being said I would not stay there unless I had kids. Tip to avoid doing the long check out lines is to call an hour ahead and do the express check in.

We did the roller coasters. Sahara $10 per person for 60 seconds, NYNY we had two for one coupons-ride is $15 per person and a few hours at Adventuredome which was $20 per person with the $4 coupon we had from the hotel. Had dinner at Toby Keiths one night and ESPN Zone the other. Kids enjoyed both. We walked the whole strip and in and out of most Hotels/Casinos. We also used that double decker bus thing which was a steal at $5 per person for 24 hours. Only downside to the bus was the adults who did not want to wait in line and almost caused riots trying to cut in front of the line. We stayed out and about till after 1am and noticed the freaky stuff starts about 11pm.

Day three we spent a couple of hours downtown on Freemont and then off to Buffalo Bills in Primm-which is a story in itself….

Bottom line kids had fun, but there was a lot they could have done with out. The freaky, creepy stuff which is of course all a part of Vegas.

For me it was a tough two days. Honestly, I hated it and would tell any parent (especially with female teens) to think twice about the trip. The kids had little freedom as I wasn’t about to let them step a foot outside the Adventuredome without me. My advice, if you do take your kids, stay with them 24/7. I love Vegas, but it’s not a place for kids or teens. I saw things though a whole new set of eyes walking around with my kids and it wasn’t pretty. Enjoy Vegas for what it is and take your kids someplace they can have a little freedom and enjoy exploring on their own.

Funny thing happened to us at Mandalay Bay. We walked downstairs to try and find the ‘beach’ one night. Out of an unmarked door walk two of the freakiest guys we had seen yet. Dressed in black leather, gobbs of make up, spikey hair, major tatt’s and surrounded by body guards the size of the Hulk. One of the kids is looking at a poster on the wall and says isn’t this the guy we just saw? Face to face with Motley Crew and did not even know it.”

Big Vegas Offers , MGM, Mirage, Excalibur, Luxor Mandalay Bay, as of July 19

Summers coming and it hotting up in Las Vegas, the hotels have loads of great offers and it seems that Excalibur probably has the best offer at the moment with a free upgrade to a renovated Widescreen Room for free, Mirage as its Summer special with rooms for $77 and MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay are giving great fly back promotions. All of the codes belwo are direct with the hotel this means that unless its a non refundable offer you pay only the first nights deposit, if your plans change you can get a full refund or change your booking up to 48 hour’s before checking in and if the rate drops after you book if you contact the hotel they will drop yours.

Many of the offers on some of my older posts are out of date so I have decided to replace all of them with in date offers listed below, all of these offers are available for everyone they are booked directly with the hotel’s giving you not only cast iron security but also the best possible rate as the middleman is cut out, unless stated on the booking page all are 100% changeable and refundable with no penalty and you only pay the first night as a deposit upfront. These are all the very best deals that can be found anywhere on the internet. All updated offers are also posted here and this is regually updated

Have fun – Simon

Excalibur, Las Vegas, NV – My Review

ExcaliburExcalibur

3850 Las Vegas Boulevard Sth,
at W Tropicana Ave,NV 89109
+1 (702) 597 7777
+1 (702) 731 7110
Excalibur Las Vegas

Location favored South End of the Strip sharing the busiest Intersection in the US with bridges to Tropicana and NY NY and an indoor walkway to the Luxor its good. This is a great location not only for the rest of the Strip but also for the Airport, I15 and Las Vegas factory shops.

Theme King Arthur and the Knights of the round table – a medieval castle affair. This is the biggest castle I have ever seen, supposedly based on one of German fairytale fame. You enter over one of many drawbridges guarded by statues of knights, some on horseback; a fanfare announces your arrival at the actual casino entrance (several hundred feet from the Strip) on the medieval travelator. As you enter the casino you will see court jesters and supposedly a fire breathing dragon, and although we have searched for it on many occasions we have never actually had the luck to see it.

Rooms The rooms are fair sized and clean and the basic rooms are dressed with “medieval” tapestries, there are showers and no tubs and they can seem a little dark. There are nicer remodeled room with 42″ plasma TV’s these are called widescreen rooms and reports say that they are very nice.

Attractions The magic motion machine is a 48 seat simulator showing various “simulations”. There is a large arcade, in the basement I like to think of it as the dungeon where all the Children are sent 😉 There is the court jester’s stage upstairs giving a variety of free acts throughout the day.

Pool The pool was always small and horrible and full of kids, its been updated I have not seen it since but the area is not that large so I am guessing that its still small and still full of kids. If you are looking for a good pool scene its not here.

Shows and Entertainment Excalibur does surprisingly well here they have the tournament of kings which is Medieval knights jousting for your pleasure whilst you eat your dinner with only your hands. Thunder from Downunder an Australian Chippendale type revue for the ladies, Louie Anderson a “larger than life” comedian as well as guest headliners.

Dining A cheap and very busy buffet there are reports of it being very poor, I have only eaten breakfast hereExcalibur Buffet and I thought it was good. It’s cheap, so you aren’t going to get lobster but on the other hand it always has massive queues so it can’t be that bad. (B $10.99, L $12.99 D $15.99 and Champagne Sunday lunch $14.99). There is the obligatory 24-hr coffee shop, a very good ice cream parlor and few snack bars as well as more expensive restaurants that I have not eaten in. They also have the WWF Nitro grill for wrestling fans and Wild Bills Saloon and Steakhouse, which has had good reviews. There is also now a Dicks Last Resort which is not for me but perfect for hen or stag nights.

Gaming A huge 123,944 sq ft of medieval fun including nearly 2,500 slots, 60 plus card tables and 7 roulette wheels. Many of the slots here seem to be of a medieval theme involving knights, dragons, fair maidens and the like. There is a very large selection of nickel slots here; well suitable for low rollers like me. Blackjack at $5 per hand, which is low for the strip and, a wonderful electronic roulette machine at 25c a go. The casino is a little dark keeping in with the old school casino but not too cramped although at weekends, probably because of the very low room rates, it did seem to get very crowded.

Drinks service, The drink service here was not bad but not good; we got served a lot quicker once we switched from nickels to quarters. I did get served very quickly when I was playing craps but seemed to be ignored whilst on video roulette.

Overall Excalibur is good value, has a good location and most of all is great fun. If you chose to stay here, and you could do much worse for your dollar, pay the extra $10 a night for a room view. The cheapest rooms face inwards giving you only a view of other rooms which some may like but most will hate.

Good points Great value for money, lots of low limit tables and fun atmosphere

Bad points You do get far more families here than other resorts, there are too many timeshare hawks!
