- Lions at the MGM

- Flamingos/Exotic Birds at Tropicana

- Tigers at Mirage/Volcano at Mirage

- Show outside at Treasure Island

- Free Circus Acts in Circus Circus

- Freemount Street Experience Downtown

- Shark tanks at Mandelay Bay

- Water show at Belagio

- Gardens in Belagio

What about free pulls? Anyone ever win with these:

1. Re: Free stuff to do in Vegas?

just because it is free I would not do the following - all personal choice, pick what interests you

fremont st - I hate downtown

vircus circus - hate it as much as downtown

sharks are not free

you might add forum shop at caesars has a little show - check, i think every hr? also HRH for the rock memoriabilia

2000 each evening the dealertainers at IP enter-a fun 15 min

there are a lot more, others will have ideas I'm sure

The outside show at Treasure Island ( Called Sirens) is pretty much panned by everyone who sees it- even though you see big crowds of first timers gathered there, so I wouldn't go out of the way to see it if I were you

. People are also pretty much divided about the quality Mandalay Shark Reef, which as the previous poster said is not free at all- I believe costs about $20 or so.

There is a very pretty FREE aquarium in the Mirage in the hotel registration area- we always walk through to take a look- not spectacular , but pretty .

You can also add walking through the Venetian and watching thegondoliers and the various free singers in costumes that are around and about.

To me the best free attraction is people watching anywhere and everywhere in Vegas. I especially like watching the roulette tables or the craps tables where large sums of money are frequently won and lost with lots of cheering and moaning.

Here are some suggestions:


The volcano now goes off once an hour-not every 15 minutes. I would definitely skip the free circus acts at CC and the Siren Show at the TI.

Imperial Palace has a very nice Auto Exhibit that is free if you use the coupons found in almost all the free magazines -like What's On.

I did try the free pull at the Riviera the first year I spent in Vegas. I did it about 90 times before I won anything- a free Riviera Tee Shirt (they didn't have my size). At that time they did give you a free deck of cards with each pull. I used them in my classroom.

The Tropicana also has a free pull machine outside of the casino.

King Tut's tomb is not free. It is cheap but it is not worth the money. I would skip it.

I'm not so sure about the Tigers at Mirage being free, I heard it costs about $15 to go in and see them.

the Fountains at the Bellagio, grab a tall drink and grab a spot, check schedule on the website, stay for 2 or 3, great people watching in between shows.

the Aladdin has a once a day free slot pull also, stops at 10 pm, dash over after fountains, sign up for a card. I won a t-shirt.

When you sign up for a card at the hard Rock, they give you $10 or $20 in free slot play.
