AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The Mirage volcano has been spitting fire and thunder since the opening of the Mirage in 1989, an event that launched the advent of the “new” Las Vegas where flashing marquees and golden porte cocheres no longer sufficed. But those riveting eruptions, once the very icon for the desert resort, began to pale in the shadow of pyrotechnic pirate battles, dizzying displays of fountain pageantry and ever more glamorous architecture along the ever burgeoning Las Vegas Strip.

Enter Volcano II—the new explosion. The $25 million volcanic redo launched December 2008 is bigger, broader, higher and hotter than ever with turbo-charged fire shooters and steam throwers sending water columns 12 feet in the air. Massive, individually choreographed fireballs ignite fiery lava that flows down the faux mountain’s fissures and enflames the entire tropical lagoon to within feet of sidewalk spectators.

MGM Mirage brought in two giants of the music industry: Mickey Hart, legendary drummer for the Grateful Dead, and Zakir Hussain, world maestro of tabla percussions, to make it magical. The result? Free gripping entertainment. The volcano displays are definitely some of the best things to do in Las Vegas.
