The 10 Best Family Shows in Las Vegas

These Vegas shows will spark the imaginations of kids and adults alike

Maybe it’s the whole Sin City thing, but Las Vegas doesn’t exactly scream “wholesome family destination.” So are you crazy to bring your kids, in-laws, and aunts and uncles along on your next vacation? Absolutely not! A visit to Las Vegas doesn’t have to mean nightclubs and gambling (though you should definitely sneak away for a little bit of those things if they’re of interest to you). There are plenty of kid-friendly activities and attractions in town, including many of Sin City’s famous productions. From the best Cirque du Soleil show for families to all-ages comedy, magic shows, and more, start by booking one of these family-friendly shows:

WOW - The Vegas Spectacular
Head to the Rio with your whole family for WOW - The Vegas Spectacular. This aquatic show is not only super affordable, it’s super entertaining for audiences of all ages. The show features more than 30 performers in a water-filled set that defies dancing and acrobats. 

Blue Man Group
The Blue Man Group is a classic Las Vegas show, so if you’re looking for a real crowd-pleaser that’s got something for everyone in your group, this is it. Located at the Luxor, the Blue Man Group features a wordless team of eponymous blue men, plus drum beats, lights, paint, smoke, and music. It is funny, strange, and entertaining—just like Vegas.

Think of Celestia as a kind of PG alternative to the notoriously raunchy Absinthe show (come back for that one when you’re not with your family). Celestia at The Strat is a big-top show with acrobats, illusions, and circus fun.

Tournament of Kings Dinner & Show
Tournament of Kings is the ultimate version of dinner and a show. Grab a ticket to this live medieval performance that allows you to cheer for your favorite knights while you feast on Cornish hen, potatoes, and beer.

If there’s a Beatles fan in your family, you’ve got to see Beatleshow. Over an hour and 15 minutes, talented Beatles impersonators will play all of your favorite songs, including “Hey Jude,” “Yesterday,” and “I Want to Hold Your Hand.”

Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream
Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream is a family-friendly magic/dance show at Bally’s. Experience this fantastical adventure featuring a former Cirque du Soleil performer and leave with a sense of amazement.

Popovich Comedy Pet Theater
Missing your furbabies while visiting Las Vegas? Come see dogs and cats perform incredible feats at Popovich Comedy Pet Theater. The show features more than 30 rescue animals including dogs, cats, birds, and a Shetland pony doing tricks such as juggling and tight-rope.

Potted Potter
Whether you’re a family of Gryffindors or Slytherins, you will love Potted Potter, the amazing Harry Potter show that tells the entire story (yes, all seven books) in just over an hour.

Legends in Concert
Legends in Concert allows you to see several iconic Las Vegas performers in one show. Featuring impersonators of everyone from Elvis to Joan Rivers, Legends is an all-ages show with plenty of Las Vegas sparkle.

KA by Cirque du Soleil 
Looking for a family friendly Cirque du Soleil show? Skip Zumanity and see Ka. This wildly entertaining show features a rotating stage, trapeze artists, juggling, and even a ship that sails across the stage.
