    Hello

    We are a family with an 10 year old child. We are making a circulair tour trough West USA , and of course we will visiting Las Vegas for 3 night. I know Las Vegas and kids is a controverse thing, but we (paents), where there 10 yers ago, and we liked Vegas a lot, and we know our kid will like it to - we plan to visit a show, go shopping, buffetteating, go to main street, make NY Coaster ... and of course we like to go to the pool.

    We have a at the moment cancable reservation for the Flamingo (go luxury room) - but we are not shure how big the party level is. We saw a lot videos on youtube with big pool partys and very crowdy pool areas.

    We are there from 7 July to 10 July (TUE, WED, THU) , and the rates in bookingsystems for this dates are in most hotels superlow (so its schould be superlow season).

    What do you think - is the party at flamingo always on ? , How about before noon ? What times the partys start typically ?
    Or should we take an other hotel (maybe Elara , or mgm, or even a more upscale property like ceasars or Mandalay Bay)

    I might be inclined to check out the Orleans... much more 'kid friendly'... and probably quite reasonable, with a decent pool that doesn't draw the 'party crowd'.
     
    Finally have the room booked! Look for me Feb 21-23

    Hello, you will have a good time, but keep in mind Vegas in July is HOT temps are over 100 and it feels even hotter in direct sun, even by the pool you will spend more time in the pool than out just to keep cool. This will also affect your ability to just "walk around", when it feels like a hair dryer is blowing in your face when you walk out of the nice air conditioned casino you won't be wanting to go for a leisurely stroll down the boulevard. I would plan for a lot of activities indoors or by the pool. I agree with topcard that the Orleans is very kid friendly however the rooms are not as nice as Flamingo. I took my 16 year old niece there last weekend and she loved it and can't wait to go back. They have a huge bowling alley open 24hrs a day, a movie theater, a large arcade with ticket redemption style games and they even have a kids club where they will keep an eye on your child for a few hours so the adults can gamble. Circus Circus also has an indoor amusement park, the high roller ferris wheel is fun for the whole family. I believe there is also a new bowling alley by the Linq next door to the Flamingo but I haven't personally been there yet, it may be a 21 and over center, I'm not sure. As far as crowds go, you will be fine, most of the party crowd comes in on Friday and is gone by Monday.

    I typically stay at Flamingo during the dates you are there. There is an uptick of crowd during the weekend days, but the weekdays are not bad.

    The Flamingo pool is nice, but it will still be crowded as that is one of the main attractions of that hotel. Outside of the pool and the habitat area, there really isn't much for kids at the Flamingo. I might look into MGM, which has a big pool area, some stuff to do that might interest them, and is in an area where there are more things to do with a kid nearby (NYNY roller coaster, Excalibur's game room and the dinner show, and others). Also nearby just north of MGM is the complex where the Coca Cola store is and there are a few kid or family friendly things to do in there.

    I agree. Much more family friendly.
