Mirage Volcano

Mirage Volcano, Las Vegas


The Volcano Show at the Mirage hotel in Las Vegas erupts with fire and smoke, 100 feet into the air every 30 minutes. Several times the flames have caught the nearby palm trees on fire creating a much more exciting show than currently is on display. This attraction underwent a renovation in 2006 to make it even more volcanic.

One of the best places to watch the free show while catching a meal is from the Casino Royale restaurant across the street on the second floor.
