Spring has officially sprung in Las Vegas, and if you’re looking for something fun to do with the family during a springtime trip to Sin City, look no further than the city’s lineup of family-friendly shows. From magic to percussion and even medieval jousting, there’s something to suit every family’s tastes. Here are 5 shows we recommend seeing with the family this spring in Las Vegas.
Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream
An epicenter of the most mind-blowing magic shows to date, Las Vegas welcomes another incredible act to its phenomenal lineup – Xavier Mortimer. Except Mortimer isn’t new to the Las Vegas stage. Some of you may have seen him starring in the highly acclaimed Cirque du Soleil production, Michael Jackson ONE, or in Season 10 of America’s Got Talent. But now he’s the one and only Cirque performer with a headlining residency show set to astonish guests once again from beginning to end. Get transported into a world you never knew – one of unconventional characters and magical talents that blends the wonder of Mary Poppins with the theatrics of Charlie Chaplin.
More than 14 enchanting acts transcend all expectations of what you thought you knew about magic shows. Xavier Mortimer's Magical Dream greets guests of all ages with wonder, awe and unmistakable talent that leave you thoroughly entertained and opens a door to a hidden world you've never imagined.
Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream is located at Ballys. The show is best for children 5 and older.
Blue Man Group
There is a reason why Blue Man Group has been so wildly successful over its 25+ year history: Their show is simply downright entertaining. Between the vivid light show, the world-class percussionists and the subtle interjections of spot-on humor, all these elements combine for a jaw-dropping performance. And on top of all of that, this show has been recently enhanced to wow audiences even more. There’s more music, theatrics, audience participation and sensory overload than ever before waiting for you inside the Luxor.
As one of the lucky members of a Blue Man Group audience, you will embark on a journey of discovery and excitement throughout the entire show. The incredible music, comedy and multimedia theatrics make this an unforgettable performance you don’t want to miss.
Blue Man Group is located at the Luxor. This show is appropriate for children ages 3 and older.
Tournament of Kings
King Arthur welcomes several different kings from around Europe, representing different sections of the arena. With the audience cheering them on, the knights of these regions joust and sword fight for an experience that’s second to none in Sin City. Enjoy these exciting battles, spectacular pyrotechnics, and dancing maidens while dining on a sumptuous three-course meal at this fun dinner show. There simply isn’t another show in Vegas that delivers this kind of kid-friendly excitement. This production is pure fantasy the entire family will love. Your whole family will be on the edge of their seats as they watch the knights joust their way to the top. The excitement peaks when a mighty wizard arrives, so sit back and enjoy a full night of Medieval fun complete with dancing maidens, amazing effects and epic battles. This show also provides a fantastic value, as kids under 3 can sit on your lap and eat for free.
Tournament of Kings is located at the Excalibur. This dinner show is appropriate for everyone.
The multi-talented Terry Fator exploded onto the scene when he won America’s Got Talent in 2007. Fator’s show can best be described as part concert, part comedy and always entertaining. With his trusty sidekicks of puppets like Winston the Impersonating Turtle, Duggie Scott Walker and Julius, he delights with his ventriloquism and spot-on renditions of some of the best songs ever made.
Fator won NBC's America's Got Talent, and it's easy to see why. Fator's impressions, humor, ventriloquism skills and singing ability are unmatched. Even better is the fact that this is one of most family-friendly shows on the Vegas Strip. It's a production that has taken Vegas by storm and is still going strong since debuting in 2009. One reason why Fator keeps drawing sold-out audiences is his talent for coming up with original puppet characters. He’s always working on something new, so you can keep coming back to this show again and again. His newest characters include superstars like Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney to President Donald Trump.
Terry Fator is located at the Mirage. This show is best for children age 5 and older.
Mystère is classic Cirque du Soleil, with all the excitement and wonder you want to see at a circus, plus unique sets, bright and intricate costumes, live music, comedy and audience participation. The blend of music, storytelling and high-energy thrills make Mystère a Las Vegas show not to be missed. There’s a reason why this is the longest-running Cirque du Soleil show in Sin City.
If you are lucky, you might be called to help during the acts of Mystère. The clown, Brian Le Petit, is a mischievous character that interacts with the audience. Troublesome and loud, his hilarious street style theatrics always seem to win people over. The side acts lighten the stage with some comedic breaks and engage the audience members for an experience to remember.
Mystère is located at Treasure Island. This show is best for children ages 5 and older.
