The Volcano

The Volcano is a spectacular attraction located just outside the Mirage Hotel-Casino on the iconic Las Vegas Strip.

This is a mind-blowing feature that includes two volcano systems, fire shooters, and a lagoon for good measure.

The combination of music with fire and excellent choreography is one of the reasons why this attraction stands out. Since it was first opened back in 1989, the volcano continues to attract millions throughout the year.

The volcano systems are incorporated together with fire shooters. The latter shoot flames on demand, and are well known to be able to shoot fire more than 12 feet into the air. This makes for a splendid display that indulges the senses like never before.

One of the exciting highlights of the Volcano is the accompanying music that sets the mood in what feels like a hypnotic adventure. This feat was pulled off by Zakir Hussain, a renowned Indian music composer and Mickey Hart, an iconic drummer from the ‘Grateful Dead,’ a popular American band. The result of the partnership is a musical masterpiece that includes the use of percussion instruments from different tribes across the world.

It is interesting to learn that the sounds of the volcano eruptions were sourced from actual volcanic activity. These sounds are further enhanced by the use of the volcano’s state-of-the-art sound system to provide visitors with an immersive experience as they feel the rumble and coordinated release of the fireballs.

To enjoy and get the most of The Mirage Volcano, take a stroll and get a vantage position right at the front of the hotel. Feel the heat of the flames as it envelopes your body and appreciate the soundtrack in the background. For an exciting aerial view, why not book your accommodation at the hotel itself.

The Volcano is operational every night of the week, at the top of every hour from 7pm to 11pm. Nothing beats watching the volcano come alive as dusk sets in. Entry is free for all, and reservations are not necessary.
