After settling into your hotel room, how do you know which Las Vegas attraction to try first? Let’s see which activities may be the best fit for your personality. For each zodiac sign, here’s something special to try on your Vegas venture.
Known as the boldest one of the zodiac, Aries will love an adrenaline pumping experience as they leap off the tallest tower in Las Vegas for SkyJump at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod. Try this controlled bungee jump at night to get a one-of-a-kind view of Sin City’s glittering lights. If that’s not enough to get your heart racing, get tickets for The Big Shot or X-Scream, two amusement rides near the top of the 1,149 feet tall tower. Interested in making a reservation? Buy tickets on their website.
This earthy sign tends to retreat in nature to relieve stress, which means that a Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour would be a great fit. Try the Wind Dancer Tour, an option that includes Champagne, beverages and snacks “served 300 feet above the mighty Colorado River,” says Maverick Helicopters. On your ride to this world wonder, you’ll also get a look at the iconic Hoover Dam, Fortification Hill, a defunct volcano, among many more mesmerizing views. Book your tour here.
As the ever-evolving social butterfly of the zodiac, Geminis enjoy stimulating conversations and sweet sips from the bar. Gossip over drinks with a group of friends at the Electra Cocktail Club inside The Venetian Las Vegas has Gemini written all over it. In fact, they offer a special drink menu themed after astrology, Zodiac Cocktails. Mix Mezcal, Yellow Chartreuse, agave, lemon, whole egg, lemon zest and club soda to summon The Gemini cocktail. Reserve seats for you and your squad here. Cheers!
Many Cancers are homebodies, but they are also usually animal lovers. Get in touch with your water element at Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage. Seeing the dolphins will give you all the warm and fuzzy feels. Discover how this animal conservation cares for their Bottlenose Dolphins, Leopards, White Lions and White Tigers, Oh, My! Prior to COVID-19, they also offered meet and greet packages allowing guests to feed and pet these friendly mammals. When it’s safe to do so, you’ll have to come back for one-on-one time with these charming aquatic creatures. Learn more here.
Front and center stage is where Leos shine like the sun. Full of life and talent, these cool cats are natural performers. KAMU Ultra Karaoke, a chic karaoke spot with luxury suites, bottle service and decadent snacks, is located at The Grand Canal Shoppes inside The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. This high-end lounge is a vibe. Leos will arrive in style wearing future fashion trends before they are dubbed “cool” and ready to rock on the mic. Sing your heart out and nibble on Parmesan-Truffle French fries between jam sessions.
To unwind from their everyday grind, it’s not uncommon for a down to earth Virgo to want to play video games and have a cold one. Near the Strip, Emporium inside AREA15 is both an arcade and a bar. Feel the sweet nostalgia playing classic arcade games while drinking craft beer like Return of the Citra Rye, a draft beer by Astronomy Aleworks made in Henderson, Nevada. Did I mention there’s no entrance fee for Emporium? Yes, that’s right. That means more coins for games and drinks. No one under 21 years old is permitted to enter.

As summer approaches, Libras will love to mingle and sip on “Tropic Like It’s Hot” cocktails at Stadium Swim inside Circa Las Vegas. Wearing the latest swimwear fashion, these air signs will love soaking up the sun on a daybed and relaxing in a private cabana. Playful and charming, they are sure to make friends by the pool or while waiting for their second cocktail at the bar. Watching a major sporting event on the venue’s gigantic 14 Million pixel screen will always be a win! I can’t see why they wouldn’t want to chill at this new summer haven.
To exercise their sharp minds and strategic skills, Scorpios will appreciate the Mind Twist Escape Experience, a virtual escape room located inside Fashion Show Mall. They have an intriguing collection of games, but Beyond Medusa’s Gate has this water sign’s name written all over it. Beyond Medusa’s Gate is an escape game that takes place in the fantasy game world of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Mind Twist says that the game transports players back to 445 BC Ancient Greece on a team of two or four people. Another game to consider is the SteamPunk Train. Watch a sneak peek of the adventure below.
The Sagittarius symbol is an archer so it only seems right to suggest these fiery intellectuals explore The Hunger Games Exhibition, based on the bestselling book series, found inside the MGM Grand. In this exhibit, the website says guests can participate in Beetee’s Archery Training, an immersive experience of bow and arrow training in the likeness of the films and books; Capitol TV Trivia, a test based on the knowledge of the Panem universe and more. Ready to volunteer as tribute? Visit here.
As the ultimate boss of the zodiac, Capricorns will love loosening up with a drink at a modern speakeasy while enriching their minds in an historical attraction like The Mob Museum. Although this activity isn’t on the Strip, it’s not a far trip by car. From The Underground’s Speakeasy, their old timey bar, to their fascinating Crime Lab exhibit, The Mob Museum is a fun way to learn about another side of Sin City.
Known as “the aliens” of the zodiac, Aquarians will enjoy Omega Mart by Meow Wolf inside AREA15. Meow Wolf crafted a unique alternate reality lurking beneath a cartoonish grocery store. From the glitches in the convenient store to the otherworldly immersive art inside the fridge, Aquarians love creative and interesting attractions that help them escape from their everyday routine. These zodiac aliens will feel right at home in this surreal scene.
As the most artistic sign in the zodiac, Pisces tend to enjoy music, art and creative outlets. For this dynamic sign, attending a Cirque Du Soleil show on the Strip like Michael Jackson One at Mandalay Bay or Beatles Love at The Mirage would give these water signs a rush of inspiration. Both shows tell vivid stories through the discographies of music legends, hypnotic dance moves, jaw dropping stunts and stunning special effects. Pisces can enjoy getting lost in one of these mind-blowing productions while sipping on a juicy cocktail from the bar. Expect a ton of vibrant photos of their experience to fill up your Instagram feeds because they love sharing their joy with others.
