    • July 10, 2015 10:40 Mirage Volcano to Drastically Cut Hours: The famous free spectacle at the Mirage, which received a major upgrade back in 2009, is to cut its nightly performances way back commencing July 13. Currently, the volcano erupts nightly every half hour, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.; once the new schedule comes into effect on Monday, you'll only be able to catch the show twice a night Sunday through Thursday, at 8 and 9 p.m., with an extra 10 p.m. eruption on Fridays and Saturdays.

    I'm shocked they waited this long. I saw so many fights between drunk/stupid/conceited idiots trying to get a better view...

    Hmmm... hope this is not a harbinger of bad economic things to come for Mirage.

    I hope they don't pull a Treasure Island and put a shopping complex in the volcano area

    What a total bummer. Wonder what their reasoning is for this? Also curious what Steve Wynn thinks of it.

    A sound financial decision.

    Wow.....that's too bad, loved the volcano's frequent show. We stay there fairly often, enjoyed it both from the room and down on the ground.

    I found that posting up in the porte-cochere by the valet was a great place, nice sight lines, good sound, and hardly any people really. At least not in late fall.

    I don't think I have seen it from the road side in quite a while, I didn't know there were people being stupid, that's too bad.

    Sad news....
    I suppose it is to save money....but I can only assume the crowds will be bigger (and ruder) for the few remaining daily shows.
