Mirage Volcano Show

View of erupting volcano at The Mirage, Las Vegas

Mirage Erupting 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 Hussain and 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 the world. At night, the peaceful 54-ft-tall waterfall outside The Mirage turns into an "Erupting 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 Hours
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.
