It’s a fairly short show, just over five minutes and is free to watch but if you want a good view it’s advisable to get to the Mirage Casino in Las Vegas 15-20 minutes before showtime as it gets packed!
The cost of visiting all the great attractions Las Vegas has to offer can really add to the cost of your trip. To help keep costs down we usually get a Las Vegas Power Pass
With it you’ll have access to over 20 attractions, tours, rides etc. The Power Pass is worth more than $500 in admissions and discounts.
The last time we saw the show we chanced upon it on our way back to
Caesars Hotel Las Vegas,
where we were staying, we weren’t that close but still had a good view as you can see in our video below:
What's the volcano like?
The Volcano mimics a real volcanic cone spewing lava which flows down into the lagoon. And it shoots out fireballs in time to a powerful soundtrack. If you’re close enough you can feel the heat emanating from it.
Who wrote the soundtrack?
The gripping soundtrack created by Grateful Dead drummer, Mickey Hart and Indian composer Zakir Hussain, really adds to the dramatic atmosphere.
A lot of care has been taken to ensure the gripping music and spectacular sound effects don’t get lost in the outdoors. There are no less than 60 Meyer Sound cabinets dotted around the lagoon. This is the same audio system used in the theatre at the Mirage.
