Vegas is all about Go Big or Go Home, which makes it an excellent choice for milestone birthdays.
Whether you are planning your own birthday extravaganza, or cooking up an epic night for someone special, Vegas is the perfect backdrop to make your wildest birthday dreams come true. Check out these five unique ideas below that go far beyond stereotypical booze buses and slot machines.
BLACKOUT—Dining in the Dark
For the culinary adventurous, Las Vegas offers a truly unique experience—dining in total darkness. The premise of BLACKOUT is to immerse its patrons in a total sensory foodie experience.
Choose from either a 6-course dinner menu ($79.95) or a 4-course lunch menu ($59.95), and prepare to be wowed with a dining experience you’ll always remember!
Vegas is known the world over for its Broadway-quality shows and entertainment. If you have a group that likes to laugh and who would be open to a more naughty experience, the Naked Magicians are a nationally-recognized group that features “magic, mirth and more than a touch of mayhem…”
Axe-throwing is an ancient spot that’s trending right now, and for good reason—turns out letting off steam by throwing sharp things at a target is a sport many people can get right into.
A perfect spot to start a night off in, Axehole offers the use of hatchets, knives, spears, and even provides access to something called the ‘Rage Room,’ (which may come in handy if the birthday girl or boy has had their fill of Over The Hill jokes).
There’s more ways to get crazy in Vegas than partying ‘til dawn, especially if you are planning an all-out weekend of birthday celebrating. Why not throw something unexpected into the mix?
Las Vegas has plenty of YOLO experiences to choose from: whether that’s peering thousands of feet down from a hot air balloon basket, jumping out of a plane over the Strip, revving a Lamborghini around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, or bungeeing off the Stratosphere, if you can dream it—in Vegas—you can do it!
Fight the Apocalypse
If celebrating a birthday makes you want to take on the world, this may be just the experience you’re seeking. Dress like a Special Ops agent and immerse yourself in an interactive combat simulation designed to save the world. Definitely something for a specialized-interest crowd, and only something you can find…in Vegas.
If these ideas aren’t quite your speed, remember that the folks in Las Vegas are trained hospitality specialists! From the concierge at your hotel, to hosts-for-hire, you really can design the most unique birthday of a lifetime in this magical destination.
Don’t forget all that nature has to offer outside the glitz and glam too—from white-water rafting, to hiking, to helicopter rides through the Grand Canyon, the desert offers a bounty of incredible opportunities for celebration in its own right.
