Mirage Volcano Show
Volcano — FREE
Largest Fire Attraction in the World
Don't miss this FUN and exciting Vegas attraction. The
4 1/2 minute spectacle of water and fire is one of the best shows
on the Strip — and
you sure can't beat the price! It's new
look, new sound and spectacular new effects is FUN
for kids and "big kids" too!
The Mirage teamed up with legendary Grateful
Dead drummer Mickey Hart, Indian tabla sensation Zakir
Fountains of Bellagio design firm WET (they
created the original Mirage volcano in 1989) to create an all-NEW
Volcanic eruption — and
what an eruption it is!
Translating fire images into sound, the talented team created
a powerful piece that's all percussion, using drums from around
world. At night,
the peaceful 54-ft-tall waterfall outside The Mirage turns into
Volcano" as fire elements rise up from
the lagoon below — there are about 150 different fire
shooters located in and around the volcano.
Bright red and orange flames
shoot 120 feet into the
sky — a
breathtaking sight as "streams of molten lava" cascade
down the waterfall and flow down the sides of the volcano
— all choreographed to an amazing earthshaking soundtrack.
Feel the Heat and Ground Shaking
You can actually feel the heat (temperatures reach over 900°) and the ground rumbling beneath you as the
volcano erupts into the night air. If you liked the original
volcano show before, you're gonna love this new one!
Just when you think the show is over, it starts up again and builds
to a crescendo, so don't budge from your viewing spot until the
show is finished.
Best Viewing Locations
For best viewing locations,
stand directly in front of the Volcano
(facing The Mirage) on the
Las Vegas Strip, or
across the street.
If you're staying at the Mirage and your
room overlooks the Volcano, just look down — and open
your window for sound. Mirage guests can also stand at the railing,
located at the hotel's main entrance — it overlooks
the volcano and lagoon area.
Volcano eruptions are nightly,
every hour on the hour, after Sunset (weather permitting).
If it's too windy, the volcano
eruptions do not take place. A flashing red beacon on the top
of the volcano means that the volcano show has been cancelled
for that hour.
