The Mirage's volcano rumbles into life at the top of the hour every evening from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., spewing flames and doing a nice, friendly impersonation of the real thing. Crowds gather early to get a glimpse of this iconic curb-side attraction, which brings the entire lagoon area in front of the Mirage to life when it erupts. When it first appeared on the Strip, the Mirage's volcano was the first Vegas exterior entertainment of its kind, and it's still wowing audiences. 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 and Indian musician Zakir Hussain.

- Best for Free Things to Do Because: With plenty of fire and pizzaz, the Mirage Volcano erupts spectacularly several times each evening.
