Get ready to feel the heat. And we don't mean from the sun. There's a lot of hot stuff going on at The Mirage.The resort's iconic attraction (and really one of the more popular attractions on the Las Vegas Strip) is a volcano. It sits right in front of the property in a tranquil lagoon...at least this lagoon is tranquil until the volcano erupts, which happens several times a night. Steam rises. Water shoots up. Lava spews. And flames dance. Seriously, they do. Choreographed to a soundtrack created by Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart and tabla player Zakir Hussain, these little fireballs have some smokin' moves.The volcano isn't the only attraction at The Mirage. Everyone who enters usually stops to snap a photo in the tropical atrium. Under a towering dome just inside the resort's front doors, it's teeming with exotic flowers. And then over behind the front desk, you'll become engrossed with a huge aquarium that houses more than 450 fish.Speaking of where the wild things are, you can't leave the resort without visiting Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. Built for education and preservation, these two habitats offer you the rare chance to view leopards, white tigers and white lions (say hello to the adorable white lion cubs -- Madiba, Timba-Masai and Freedom for us when you go) as well as bottlenose dolphins. Bet you didn't think you'd see all those animals in Vegas?And then there's the entertainment at The Mirage. The Beatles "LOVE" by Cirque du Soleil, Terry Fator, Boyz II Men: each one is a truly remarkable show. So what should you do about them? See all three!"LOVE" takes place in a circular, custom-built theater. Not only will the music wow you (it comes from The Beatles' original recordings), but the imaginative props and costumes will transport you to another time. Fator, a singing ventriloquist, and his collection of puppets (characters like Winston the Impersonating Turtle and country singer Walter T. Airdale) will have you in stitches. And ladies will swoon in the aisles at the "Mowtownphilly" melodies of Boyz II Men -- those smooth-as-silk singers!Plus, thanks to the ongoing Aces of Comedy series, comedians like Jay Leno, Ray Romano, Tim Allen, Kathy Griffin and Daniel Tosh swing by the resort on select weekends to crack audiences up with their antics.Dining at The Mirage is another pleasure. In just a short walk, you'll pass by Stack Restaurant & Bar by chef Brian Massie; Japonais, where East meets West in a wonderful way; and Portofino, which features Italian classics with a modern twist. At Tom Colicchio's Heritage Steak, all kinds of meats are prepared over open flames in either wood-burning ovens or on charcoal grills. Go ahead...try and choose...all of these restaurants are delicious!More eateries are tucked into other corners of The Mirage. Open to the casino, the smells coming from Samba, a Brazilian steakhouse that serves rodizio-style meals, will make your mouth water. The Chinese restaurant Fin showcases live seafood -- steamed, baked or wok-fried. For a sandwich stuffed beyond belief, head to the Carnegie Deli.  And then there's the resort's buffet, Cravings, where you'll feel like you're strolling down a street crammed with international cuisine.Actually, if you want to spend time on a famous street, check out Rhumbar. This cool lounge has an outdoor patio where you'll have a fabulous view of the Strip. Kick back here with either a refreshing mojito or a cigar and just take it everything in.Looking for a place to party? Then go to 1 OAK Las Vegas, a nightclub imported from New York City. Divided into two separate rooms with their own bars and music formats, you never know who you might see. Maybe hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis? Or one of the Kardashians? The list of celebrities who have passed through 1 OAK's doors is endless.When The Mirage opened in 1989, it was one of the first true megaresorts on the Las Vegas Strip. A hottie of a property way back then, today it continues to fan those flames.

disappointed in hotel
PostedFebruary 23, 2013
They placed us in last room at end of hall. For 2 days we had no wash cloths and were short a towel. The shower handle broke, it was fixed. There is not high speed internet..it was slower than dial up. The main pool was closed.

Truth is, there’s a Cirque du Soleil production for just about every personality, mood and interest out there. And “KA,” is for the action-loving, adventure-seeking show goers that can appreciate an age-old story of good versus evil. The storyline illustrates the journey of a brother and sister twin duo that becomes separated during a siege of their Far Eastern palace by evil warriors. Yep, this is a royal battle, y’all and they’ve pulled out all the stops.The entire theater is designed to fit the theme so no matter where your gaze takes you, you’ll be looking at the set. But you’re really gonna love this: the stage is made up of two massive moving platforms that not only float, but turn completely vertical. Did you hear that? That was the sound of our minds being blown. And just wait until you see the suspended fight scenes.Also, while it’s insanely cool, not all the stunts are done in the air. The Wheel of Death, for example (ohmagah can you believe they have a Wheel of Death?), is positioned firmly on the ground while the daredevil performer flings himself into dangerous heights, where one misstep could lead to his demise. A story of intense battle, and a question of triumph or defeat to the very end, KA is entertainment on an entirely new level. Forreal.

the best show ever seen
PostedFebruary 23, 2013
My spouse and I were so impressed with this show! The stage moves and keeps you totally on the edge of your seat with the best preformance we have ever seen. We were in the 10th roll center and you could feel the heat from the intermittant flame, however there was no smoke that came out into the audience. We totally satisfied and as my husband said to me "it was worth every penny we spent".
