There’s more to the Las Vegas entertainment scene than just shows and nightclubs. The city is home to plenty of awesome attractions, like these new experiences guests will want to enjoy time and time again.
CHOCOLATE TASTINGS ON BOARD THE HIGH ROLLER
One of Las Vegas’ sweetest experiences, the High Roller’s in-cabin chocolate tastings with Ethel M Chocolates lets guests sample five types of chocolate and learn from a chocolatier ambassador on board about the origin of the popular candy. Bottles of water are provided to help cleanse participants’ palates between each piece so they can properly identify the different flavor notes. Guests also learn some fun facts about the world’s tallest observation wheel as they take in the sights from 550 feet above the city. Available Thursdays from 5 to 8:30 p.m. (final tasting starts at 8 p.m.), the 30-minute experience includes a free drink voucher that guests can redeem at the bar before boarding.

In Venice it can take years to become a gondolier, but in Las Vegas all you need is 90 minutes thanks to The Venetian’s Gondola University. Sessions are available daily between 8 and 10 a.m. and give participants the chance to row an authentic Venetian gondola. Before boarding the vessel, guests watch a short video on the history of gondoliers and are taken to the underground facility where the gondolas are maintained. Then, one of The Venetian’s experienced gondoliers teaches each visitor how to pilot a gondola under their watchful eye. The experience concludes with an official sash and scarf ceremony, modeled after the ritual used by the resort when new gondoliers complete their training, where each participant receives a souvenir diploma and photograph. Guests also receive a keepsake gondola hat and T-shirt to wear while on board the vessel. Find more info on Gondola University here.
MARVEL AVENGERS S.T.A.T.I.O.N.
A must for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this immersive attraction at Treasure Island takes guests inside the Avengers Scientific Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network (S.T.A.T.I.O.N.) as they train to become an agent. Visitors learn about The Avengers as they walk through the exhibit, watching slideshows on an interactive app and reading classified files. Guests also see authentic costumes and props from the films and compare their skill sets to certain members of The Avengers. The experience culminates with recruits teaming up to defeat the villainous Ultron, who has infiltrated the building. Learn more about the attraction here.
