Over 300 weddings take place in Las Vegas every day, making it one of the most popular U.S. destinations to tie the knot. But did you know that Sin City is also home to plenty of attractions that make it perfect for the ultimate bachelor party?
Vegas offers endless ways for you and your wedding guests to celebrate your last day (or night) of singledom, from the tame to the adventurous. Here are just a few ideas for a bachelor party in Vegas that you and your guests will never forget!
Experience Downtown Like Never Before
The best way to describe the downtown area’s entertainment district known as the Fremont Street Experience is that it’s like one giant playground—mostly for adults.
You can soar like a superhero on the SlotZilla zipline, have your picture taken with a million bucks at Binion’s, place sports bets at Circa, and even see a piece of the Berlin Wall in the men’s restroom at Main Street Station. In fact, there’s so much to see and do within the five-block area that you simply won’t get to do it all in one day, so choose wisely. That’s why it’s considered one of the best Las Vegas attractions.
Don’t forget to run the Happy Buddha’s belly at The California Hotel and Casino for some luck before hitting the slots.
Let Off Some Pre-Wedding Steam at The Firing Range
If you and your buddies get your kicks from packing a little heat, then a visit to The Gun Store may be in order. The first gun range to open in Vegas offers more than 60 types of firearms from handguns to full automatic machine guns. You can pretend you’re battling everyone from terrorists to zombies as your target.
Best of all, bachelors and bachelorettes get to shoot for free. While walk-ins are welcome, The Gun Store offers several packages for groups that include VIP touches such as a luxury sofa to relax on in between rounds and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages. Safety is the top priority and the friendly staff is available to answer any questions.
Just Chill at an Ice Bar
Whether you need to refresh yourself after a day in the hot Vegas sun or you’re just looking for a literally cool bachelor party experience, the Minus5 Icebar should be on your list.
Everywhere you look you’ll see something beautifully sculpted of ice, including the walls, seating, and even the drink glasses. In fact, 90 tons of ice have gone into creating each of our three Vegas locations, making for some social media-worthy shots.
There’s no need to pack your bulky winter gear if you’re planning on hitting Minus5 during a Vegas trip. Each guest is given gloves and a faux fur coat or parka to wear during their visit. Since there’s no wind inside the bar, there’s no wind chill factor to worry about.
There’s no better way to beat the Vegas desert heat while giving your bachelor party guests one of the coolest experiences in town.
Get Your Adrenaline Fix in the Sky
If you’ve always secretly longed to be Tom Cruise in Top Gun, Sky Combat Ace can make that dream come true for you and give you an adrenaline rush as no amusement park thrill ride can. Those with nerves of steel can get the full fighter pilot experience with the Top Gun package, where an instructor will help you pull off maneuvers such as tailspins, torque rolls, and even the hammerhead stall. Needless to say, a bachelor party experience such as this one isn’t for the faint of heart.
Want more heart-stopping excitement? The flight adventure company also offers several combat packages at various levels that give you the ultimate aerial dogfighting experience.
Rev Your Engines
If you prefer to get your kicks on the ground rather than in the air, then Exotics Racing is literally more your speed. Now is your chance to get behind the wheel of a Lamborghini, Aston Martin, or other exotic supercar and let your inner Mario Andretti take over.
Riding with an instructor, you’ll learn how to put the racecar of your choice through its paces as you master accelerating, turning, and braking along a racetrack at speeds reaching 140 mph. Everyone from Jay Leno to Jamie Foxx has visited the custom-designed racetrack and best of all, it’s just a 15-minute ride from the strip.
Savor Some Suds With a Brewery Tour
You drink and leave the driving up to Sin City Brew Tours when you book a brewery tour with them. The tour company has partnered with the best local breweries the city has to offer and will surprise guests with a visit to three of them. There’s no need to worry about drinking and driving, as Sin City Brew Tours will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel, and they also provide complimentary snacks and bottled water.
Tours are customizable, so if you have some breweries in mind you can request them when you book your event.
Master a Mechanical Bull
A visit to Vegas wouldn’t be complete without a turn on a mechanical bull—or the opportunity to watch others try to hold on as long as possible. There are several bars that feature the robotic beasts, but Gilley’s saloon—with its old west theme—may be the most entertaining to visit. A bonus is that bikini-clad contestants have been known to ride the bull here, making it the perfect outing for a bachelor and his crew.
Become a Poker King
Whether you’re new to the game or a high roller, you’ll feel like James Bond when you visit the Bellagio’s luxurious poker lounge. Open 24 hours/day and serving complimentary cocktails, it’s one of the best places in Vegas to get in on some poker action starting at $4/8 limit.
Or if you’re really willing to risk it all, Bobby’s Room is where the serious players go. Be forewarned that the minimum here usually costs as much as a year of college tuition.
Plan the Best Bachelor Party in Vegas
As you can see, Vegas has something for everyone when it comes to planning bachelor parties. You and your guests definitely won’t be bored with any of these ideas.
