“Visitors step aboard spherical glass-enclosed cabins that slowly rotate at one foot per second to give them a leisurely 30 minute ride to admire the 360-degree views of the city.” There is plenty of room in each cabin to move around and that includes a place to sit if you need — and those views … it’s Vegas at its best.
“The Mob Museum offers a bold and authentic view of organized crime from vintage Las Vegas to the back alleys of American cities and — increasingly — across the borders and networks of the entire world.” It’s interactive, informative and fun! (And visit the “The Underground” after your visit — https://themobmuseum.org/underground/.)
