October 18, 1968 - Circus Circus opened with 700 rooms. The Circus Circus now has 2,800 affordable rooms and suites. It is the first hotel on the Strip to actively seek family trade and still one of the best family resorts in Las Vegas. Circus Circus started as a circus in 1968 and continues with that heritage today. Before it was a casino and a resort, it was a permanent big top. The circus theme is carried throughout. With a carnival atmosphere, there are still live circus acts. Free circus acts happen periodically above the main casino. The kids will enjoy the Grand Slam Canyon theme park which opened in 1993. It is the world's largest Permanent Circus covering an area of 120,000 sq. ft capped by a 90 foot high tent shaped roof. Fully enclosed (which means that it is climate controlled) amusement park, five acres inside a giant pink dome complete with a double loop, double corkscrew roller coaster, the Rim Runner - a water log flume ride, water slide, virtual reality games, Hot Shots - laser tag and animated prehistoric dinosaurs. There are snack bars and food carts. Also for the kids, is the largest carnival midway in Las Vegas. It is located near the main entrance on the second floor above the main casino. Circus Circus is located on the west side of the Strip south of Sahara Avenue and across from the Riviera Hotel and Casino.
