Top 10 Accessible Attractions in Las Vegas
By: Danielle Max | Oct 10 2017

As the well-known saying goes, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” But don’t worry, there are plenty of things to do that you just won’t be able to stop talking about when you get home. While the Strip has endless attractions, from shopping, eating and general gawking – and don’t forget the gambling – it’s worth taking some time away from the main drag to check out some of Las Vegas’ other attractions.

Everything in Vegas is bigger than anywhere else. While the strip is wheelchair accessible, if not always wheelchair friendly, the sheer distances, coupled with the heat and the heaving mass of people walking around, make taxis a great idea, especially as all taxi companies operating in the city have lift-equipped vans accommodating wheelchairs.

If you prefer to take public transport, the RTC is wheelchair accessible.  All of the buses are fully accessible with lifts, ramps or kneeling devices and are equipped with wheelchair securement areas.

Neon Museum | Brian Jones/Las Vegas News Bureau

When in Vegas, the offbeat seems totally normal, so take a visit to the Neon Museum, a museum dedicated to the big flashing signs that make Vegas stand out. The nearly two-acre campus includes an outdoor exhibition space, known as the Boneyard, which features more than 200 signs, seven of which are restored, a visitors' center housed inside the former La Concha Motel lobby and the Neon Boneyard North Gallery, all of which can be seen on the hour-long guided tour of the site.

The Neon Museum is wheelchair accessible. The Neon Boneyard has a fine gravel surface that both powered and unpowered wheeled devices can easily navigate. Service animals are allowed on tours.

The museum offers a limited number of free printed tour supplements available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Slotzilla Zip Line, Fremont Street Experience

One of Las Vegas’ latest, but most popular attractions, is SlotZilla, a giant slot-machine-inspired urban zip wire that takes riders shooting over the Fremont Street Experience. Riders can choose between the 77-foot-high zip wire or if they are even more daring, the 114-foot-high zoomwire. Both send riders zooming over the crowds at up to 40 miles an hour!

For anyone brave enough to try it out, the experience is wheelchair-accessible. A SlotZilla supervisor accompanies wheelchair users up to the take-off deck in a Freemont Street Experience wheelchair. They are put in the prone “superhero” position and sent hurtling down Freemont Street. If they survive the ride, they must be met at the other end of the ride with their own wheelchair.

Click here to find out more. 

Public Transportation: Deuce to 4th @ Fremont (1-minute walk) or the SDX to Casino Center @ Carson (5-minute walk).

Parking: Paid parking in the Fremont Street Experience parking structure on the corner of 4th Street and Carson Avenue.

Top Tip: Scream as loudly as you want, you’re flying overhead so fast no one will be able to hear you!

The LINQ Promenade, High Roller | Brian Jones/Las Vegas News Bureau

If you’ve a penchant for heights, why not take a ride in the 550-foot-tall High Roller, which is located at The LINQ's outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment promenade? Measuring 520 feet in diameter, the High Roller is bigger than both the London Eye and Singapore Flyer — of course, bigger is better in Vegas!

The wheel takes 30 minutes to complete a full revolution and features 28 glass-enclosed cabins that give a great view of the city of Las Vegas and the Strip. Each spherical cabin can hold up to 40 people. There are benches on either side of the cabin and plenty of floor space in between.

The High Roller is accessible and will stop momentarily to allow for a wheelchair to board.

Parking: Both self-parking and valet parking is available. Valet is located just a few steps away from the wheel entrance, and the self-parking lot is a quick walk behind the wheel. The lot is located off Flamingo and LINQ Lane, with another entrance off Koval and Winnick, east of Las Vegas Boulevard.

Public Transportation: Deuce to Las Vegas @ Harrah’s Hotel (4-minute walk) or the SDX to Las Vegas @ Paris (8-minute walk).
