Circus Circus Expands Pool Complex, Including 50-Foot Waterslide

Circus Circus has begun an expansion of its pool complex, including the addition of what professionals in the waterpark industry call a “big-ass waterslide.”

Do not let your kids see this or they will badger you about it for the rest of your life.

The towering, 50-foot waterslide will give guests three distinct experiences. There’s a “speed slide,” an “aqua tube” and a four-lane “mat racer.”

Here’s a closer look at the slide and its various parts.

1. Aqua tube. 2. Mat racer. 3. Speed slide. Take care to not hit your head on the numbers on the way down.

The slide is just the beginning of the Circus Circus pool expansion, however.

There will also be a “Splash Pad” area, including water features like water cannons, “splash falls” and “tilting buckets,” whatever those might actually be.

The expansion will also have shade structures, lounge chairs, cabanas and personalized lockers.

The pool will also have its own food truck. With food. Please try and keep up.

The pool expansion abuts the current pool area at Circus Circus. Again, don’t let your child learn the word “abuts” or expect to hear it approximately 47 million times.

The pool’s existing snack bar will be refurbished, and new showers and restrooms will be added to the pool complex.

Restrooms, lockers, showers. Who knows? We are a blog, not a building psychic.

A highlight of the Circus Circus pool expansion will be an area reserved for guests 18 and older. Because hallelujah.

A news release about the pool expansion said the project will be completed in the second quarter of 2017. In terms human beings use, that’s June 2017.

Despite the lack of diving boards, the pool complex at Circus Circus is surprisingly well-maintained and welcoming. Thanks a lot, lawyers.

There’s one caveat about the expanded pool at Circus Circus. It will be available only to hotel guests.

We’ve enjoyed our stays at this underrated Las Vegas resort, and there’s a lot to love about Circus Circus, including the fact parking remains free.

Here are a photo gallery of the new waterslide at Circus Circus, mainly because it’s much too late in the game for us to get a life at this point.
