Valley of Fire
Valley of Fire is Nevada's oldest and largest state park. The valley derives its name from the red sandstone formations and the stark beauty of the Mojave Desert. Ancient trees and early man are represented throughout the park by areas of petrified wood and 3,000 year-old Indian petroglyph.
For years, this fun loving hotel has been a popular destination for families travelling to Las Vegas with children. The vibrant pink and white stripes reminiscent of a circus tent are accented throughout the public areas and offer a whimsical feel to the resort. As the largest space frame dome in the United States, the Adventuredome offers a unique indoor theme park experience.
