Even after experiencing some setbacks from COVID-19, Las Vegas continues to be a top destination for those looking for some extra spice in their lives. Vegas always has the classics: the shows, the nightlife, the gambling, and the food. But, every year, Sin City changes and brings something new for its visitors. In this list, we break down the seven new exciting attractions coming (or just arrived) to Las Vegas that you should know about before planning your next visit!
1. Allegiant Stadium
Allegiant Stadium is the first in Nevada to host an NFL team. The Las Vegas Raiders had their first game at Allegiant Stadium on September 21, but fans are limited at the moment which is why we’re still keeping it on our list – the full experience at Allegiant Stadium is yet to be had! The Stadium is an impressive work of architecture with retractable doors that show views of the Strip and a translucent roof. Sports fans have a lot to look forward to at this Stadium, including the Las Vegas Bowl, the Pac-12 Championship Game, and UNLV Football games. The Stadium will also be used to host concerts and other entertainment shows, so keep an eye out for the schedule when booking your next Las Vegas holiday.
2. KAMU Ultra Karaoke
KAMU Ultra Karaoke bar was originally set to open in early 2020 and temporarily shut down due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, once it opened up again, it quickly became a Strip favorite. This is the first high-end luxury karaoke club on the Las Vegas Strip. In total, it includes 40 private soundproof suites. And, each room has its own unique, outrageous decorations. You can book a suite ranging from groups of 6-40 people. KAMU Ultra Karaoke also serves food and offers bottle services, so rest assured you can spend the whole night away at this venue.
3. FlyOver Las Vegas
Want a view of the Las Vegas Strip like you’ve never seen? FlyOver Las Vegas is set to open in 2021, offering people the opportunity to hand suspended before a 52.5 feet spherical screen. This gives people the sensation of flying over Vegas – without the danger. To make this experience as realistic as possible, some of the special effects include wind, mist, scents, and motion during the “flight.”
One of the unique offerings of Vegas is the line-up of amazing artists that take up residency in Sin City for months of shows. R&B legend Usher is starting his residency in Vegas in 2021, with the first show being July 16. Usher will be performing at the Caesar’s Palace in a 4,300 seat venue.
5. Circa Resort & Casino
Circa Resort & Casino has already had a soft opening in late 2020 but will be taking room bookings as of December 28, 2020 and into 2021. This new downtown Las Vegas hotel spans over a million square feet. Circa is the first hotel in Las Vegas to be adults-only, requiring guests to be at least 21 years old. It’s also entirely modern, offering some exciting features such as the world’s largest three-story screen, a fantastic rooftop pool deck (open year-round), as well as restaurants and gambling options.
6. The Boring Company
Elon Musk’s The Boring Company is bringing an innovative experience to Las Vegas that you can’t find anywhere else. The Las Vegas Convention Centre, set to open in 2021, contracted The Boring Company for its transportation hub. This project, dubbed ‘The People Mover,’ will use underground passenger stations of autonomous Tesla vehicles to connect the massive 1.4 million-square-foot facility. People will be able to use these stations to get across a 200-acre space in just one-minute versus the 15 minutes it would usually take to walk this distance. The Tesla vehicles will travel at 35-40 miles per hour in a twin tunnel loop system and will allow passengers to sit or stand.
There’s no doubt that once this facility opens, crowds will swarm to test out this experience!
7. Area 15
It’s hard to describe exactly what Area 15 is … possibly because this is a unique attraction, unlike anything else. The slogan for Area 15 seems to embrace this: “Enter curious. Leave different.”
Described as “the world’s first experiential entertainment complex,” Area 15 has a wide range of attractions and experiences to offer visitors, all at one facility. This is a family-friendly facility that includes:
- A bamboo volcano
- Flight stimulator
- A psychedelic art house
- And more
This venue truly offers a day of never-ending fun for everyone. Currently, Area 15 has some attractions open but plans to have a full opening in 2021.
Whether you’re traveling to Vegas for the first time or returning as a seasoned visitor, make sure to include one of these new exciting attractions on your trip!
