It's not every day we spot celebrities. And when we do happen to see them, it's challenging to whip our phones out to snap a decent picture. At Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, not only will you have enough time to take a picture with your favorite superstar (or superhero), but you'll be sure to fool your friends back home, too. The 100-plus wax replicas look so real that you'll find yourself taking a second glance.The best part of the two-floor, 30,000-square-foot museum is having the chance to get up-close and personal with each celebrity. Touching is highly encouraged. After all, you want your pictures to look as realistic as possible, right? Some replicas have fun little features included. For instance, if you touch Jennifer Lopez's backside, she blushes.Some guests get a bit carried away with the whole interactive element, especially after a few trips to the bar located inside the museum. Aside from the usual lipstick marks and scratches on the replicas, visitors in the past have even styled or braided hair. Can you picture Lindsay Lohan in pigtails? Overly eager guests have even shattered wax figures like Harrison Ford and Jenna Jameson to pieces. Fortunately, Madame Tussauds Las Vegas has a team of talented studio artists to repair such blunders. However, if it's beyond repair, the team has to send the figures back. Keep in mind while you're here that it's OK to touch -- just don't be that guy.Madame Tussauds Las Vegas features tons of your favorite celebrities, from musicians and movie stars to sports figures and superheroes. Though a partnership with Marvel Comics, Madame Tussauds has assembled some of The Avengers. A multi-sensory Marvel 4-D Theater allows film viewers to feel the action (and even get wet) as the superheroes save Las Vegas from destruction.In the Hollywood/A-list room, get face-to-face with stars such as Sandra Bullock, Matthew McConaughey, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Hugh Hefner and Jamie Foxx. If you're a big music fan, then you're in luck. Madame Tussauds features musicians from all genres, from Gwen Stefani and Britney Spears to Snoop Dogg and the late Tupac Shakur. Have fun singing karaoke-style as "American Idol" judge Simon Cowell watches on with a scowl.In the sports room, shoot hoops next to the towering Shaquille O'Neal figure or putt with Tiger Woods. The Vegas showroom showcases stars like Liberace, Wayne Newton, Frank Sinatra, Siegfried & Roy (complete with a white-striped tiger!) and Celine Dion.Some celebrities get directly involved in order to make their figure. R&B sensation Beyoncé worked closely with Madame Tussauds artists in London as they replicated her hair color, make-up, body type and complexion. Gwen Stefani teamed with in-house studio artists at the Las Vegas location to help achieve the style of her wax figure. Fergie from Black Eyed Peas even donated one of her dresses to the museum.The process of making a figure is lengthy -- it can take anywhere from four to six months. Once researchers conduct surveys on who should be included in the attraction, they find out as much as they can about the celebrity including how they pose in pictures, common facial expressions and their hairstyle and clothing preferences.If he or she is able, the celebrity comes in for a sitting. The stylists take more than 150 measurements and 200 photos. This is also an opportunity for artists to match the hair and eye shade perfectly.  For the face, the team uses oil-based paints and applies it in layers, creating a realistic skin complexion. Fun fact: The body is not only made of wax, but also steel and clay.To keep the attraction new and exciting, Madame Tussauds adds or rotates new figures frequently. There are dozens of locations throughout the world including Atlanta, New York, Shanghai, London and Amsterdam, to name a few.

The wildest part of Las Vegas isn't necessarily the nightlife.Right on the Las Vegas Strip is an attraction that defines wild in Vegas in a whole new way. Welcome to Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage Hotel & Casino where white tigers and lions, leopards and dolphins enjoy the Vegas sun and a posh resort like the millions of human tourists who visit the city each year.The facility, which opened in 1990, is the dream of legendary magicians Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn, better known to millions as Siegfried & Roy. For years the duo has worked to help save endangered animals, primarily white tigers and lions.The Secret GardenIf you loved collecting those big, cuddly stuffed animals as a kid, then visiting the Secret Garden at the Mirage is a dream come true. Here you can see your furry friends come to life within the lush surroundings of the habitat.The beautiful attraction displays six different showcases of white tigers and lions, as well as leopards. But the majority of these cats aren't like the typical wild animals you see."These are some of the most impressive cats I've ever seen," said Dave Blasko, director of animal care at The Secret Garden. "People come from all over the world to see them."The Secret Garden stands out from other animal habitats because it features white striped tigers as well as snow white ones. With their distinctive fur color and crystal blue eyes, the cats almost seem unreal.For more than 20 years, Siegfried and Roy dedicated their time in preserving these rare and exotic breeds. Not only does the Secret Garden preserve these animals from extinction, but visitors also have the opportunity to gain a better understanding and awareness about them.As you meander through the habitat, you'll notice all the lush greenery, fun, jungle-themed music and even a towering lion figure made from plants. Some of the cats even have built-in waterfalls in their resting areas. You'll also discover fun facts about the animals written on plaques spread throughout the facility. For instance, female lions do most of the hunting while the male lion watches over the pride. Also, tigers actually enjoy swimming."Tigers are one of the few cats who like water," said Blasko.If you want to take some of the wildlife back home with you, the gift shop at the Secret Garden offers souvenirs.Together with its lush foliage and gorgeous waterfalls, the Secret Garden is the ideal place to visit any time of the year. With all its trees and tropical surroundings, you'll literally feel like you're in another country.Four tiger cubs were born at the facility on August 5, 2015. They are on display in the nursery each day from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. (time subject to change without notice) and are now permanent residents on the Las Vegas Strip. The Dolphin HabitatSurrounded by palm trees, lush foliage and 2.1 million gallons of water, the Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage is truly an oasis on the Las Vegas Strip. Whether the bottlenose dolphins who call the habitat home are swimming, "tail walking" across water, catching fish or bonding with each other, you'll get an up-close and personal look at their fun, intriguing lifestyle.While many people think of Sea World when they think of dolphins, many don't realize that they can see the creatures right in the midst of the Las Vegas desert. The Dolphin Habitat is a research facility and is also designed to educate people about these amazing animals. And while the dolphins don't perform on a regular schedule, visitors can still be surprised by their natural playfulness.Exercising is also very vital to the dolphins' health. When the trainers aren't exercising or having fun with the dolphins, they conduct regular check-ups to ensure that they're healthy.The Dolphin Habitat offers an underwater viewing area. But if you're trying to take a picture of the dolphins, it can get a little tricky. Since these dolphins are so swift and playful, you may find yourself running back and forth to capture the perfect photo.The habitat also features shaded seating, a café and a gift shop filled with memorabilia including plush dolphin toys and even dolphin-shaped water guns.Dolphin Habitat visitors who wish to get a little more involved with the animals can choose from a couple different programs. Painting With the Dolphins allows you to create a mammal masterpiece. Available from noon to 3:30 p.m. daily, you will get up close and personal with a dolphin as you collaborate on creating an original piece of art. Cost of $199 includes price of admission, your unique masterpiece, a certificate and a photograph of the experience.The Trainer for a Day program, meanwhile, is an all-day activity allowing guests slip into a wetsuit and get up close to the dolphins. From 9:45 a.m. - 3:15 p.m. you will interact with and feed the dolphins while accompanied by habitat staff. A staff member will snap photos of your experience throughout this this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. At the end of the day, your photos will be put on a CD for you to take home as a one-of-a-kind souvenir. Price varies between $495 and $595 depending on the season, with a four person maximum. Call (702) 792-7889 for more information or to make reservations.Whether you come to see the dolphins or some of the rarest white tigers and lions in the world, The Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat may prove to be the wildest moment on your Vegas trip.

For those seeking a saucy, sumptuous and all around awe-inspiring evening of entertainment, look no further than Le Rêve at Wynn Las Vegas. You’ll never know how sexy it can be to kick water in someone’s face until you see this show (kinda makes us want to slosh through every puddle we see).An escape from reality, Le Rêve, French for “The Dream,” takes you through passion and heartbreak in a storyline that is about as steamy as it gets…and we’re not talking about the red-hot fire and water action either.The show's water elements perfectly accentuate the performers’ chiseled figures, making the already slinky costumes cling in all the right places, if you know what we mean. The fire and fog create intensity and mystery to an already unbelievable submerging set. There’s dancing, acrobatics, synchronized swimmers, divers and so much more.  This is one show you can’t miss, just trust us on this one…you’ll forget about all those meetings and to-do lists when you melt into the colorful aquatic wonderland that is Le Rêve.

Get ready to experience the ultimate sensory overload when our favorite blue bros take the stage and crank up the volume. An audiovisual encounter unlike anything else on the Strip, Blue Man Group is fun for the whole family and just doesn’t get old no matter how many times you see it.  The narrators of the Blue Man Group show profess to know a lot about human nature and social evolution, but the three bald and blue stars are oddly oblivious. Through music, movement and only a little bit of verbal communication, you become a part of this production and swim in the sights and sounds that douse the theater. The show is good clean fun with a variety of acts and quick-change illusions, but the core of its appeal is the company's signature music, played on far-out, makeshift instruments.Seriously fun and unconventionally educational, you’ll have had a lot of laughs, and have maybe even shaken your caboose. Go ahead and let your jaw drop open, after all, being consumed by entertainment produced by three blue men is a perfectly acceptable reaction.

We’re about as indecisive as anyone else on this planet. Like come on, how can you make a decision on which show to see when there are a bazillion of them in Las Vegas? We ask ourselves every time, are we feeling lovey dovey or do we want to go to that rock metal concert down the street? Luckily, we found the solution to all our indecisive problems. V – The Ultimate Variety show gives you every entertainment element packed into one, like a buffet of talent, if you will.And in the true spirit of variety, the production swaps out different performers each night. So who knows if you’ll get street dancer, Turf if you go on a Tuesday? You might end up with Merlin the Magician instead. Talking about the mystery of it all gives us that feeling of truly living on the edge. But if you’re more of a person that needs to be in the know, we’ll give you the deets.There’s the Skating Aratas, a husband and wife duo that pull out the death-defying stunts to get your blood pumping. And then there’s a former rhythmic gymnastics Olympian, Yeroffyeva which will have you in awe with the beauty of her moves. Next up, you might find your way to the streets with Turf, the street dancer who will get the crowd up and moving with his music. Or maybe The Crazy Gauchos will come out with a drum routine you’ll fall in love with.It doesn’t matter which acts come out from behind the curtain, all of them have great talent you can’t help but get googly eyed over all of them. Problem solved indecisive people, this is the Las Vegas show you need to see.
