taking my 7 year old son to vegas?

My wife has a conference at the Venetian. I want to go to and bring my 7 year old son. I,ve been to Vegas a couple times a few years ago. We are not going to gamble-I know kids are not allowed in the gambling area. We were thinking of some ideas to do with him. He will enjoy the pools (are they allowed in the pool areas at the Venetian?). He will be well behaved. Some other ideas we had were the Knight's show at the Excalibur, teh Volcano eruption at the Treasure Island, Circus Circus and the tiger exhibit at the Mirage. I think he would enjoy the roller coaster ay NY NY. Any other ideas on what a 7 year old might enjoy? Should I have any reservations about bringing him?

Thanks

Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay is really fun. In addition to being beautiful and interesting, there's a touch pool so he can touch a few of the fish.

Yes, children are allowed in the Venetian pool area.

Our girls were 7 and 9 when we went to Vegas with them. We stayed in Lake Las Vegas area. We went to the pool a couple days, to Hoover Dam and went sightseeing. We also saw 3 shows and went to dinner on the strip. This was 10 years ago. We had a great trip.

My grandson at that age loved the luxor. There is a KIng Tut Museum, IMAX, 3-D ride etc. He also like Mac King daytime Harrahs/comedy & magic.

Doubtful he's tall enough to do the roller coaster at NYNY. I know a 10 yr old that couldn't go on it because of that. The white tigers and dolphins at the Mirage are great, he'd love them.

A 7 year old will absolutely love Kids Tyme. You don't have to be a hotel guest to take your children, but you are required to stay on the property.
