Three times a day, the Mirage's volcano rumbles into life, spewing flames and doing a nice, friendly impersonation of a real volcano. Crowds gather early to get a glimpse of this iconic curb-side attraction--when it first appeared on the Strip, it was the first Vegas exterior entertainment of its kind. The entire lagoon area in front of the Mirage comes to life when the volcano is erupting. If you've ever seen real lava, you're in no danger of mistaking the special effects at the Mirage for the real thing--but it is a Hollywood-worthy spectacle, and plenty of fun to watch. An exclusive soundtrack for the eruption was created by Mickey Hart of the The Grateful Dead's and Indian musician Zakir Hussain.
- Daily 8pm, 9pm, 10pm
- Free Things to Do: "The Mirage Volcano's eruptions are full of fire balls and explosions, and depending on where you're standing, you can feel heat from the effects. Small children might be frightened, so if you have kids, be sure to keep an eye on them."
- Best for Free Things to Do Because: For a volcanic eruption you can enjoy fearlessly (and for free), watch one of the Mirage Volcano's regularly scheduled shows.
