If you haven’t heard, Imaginarium, an all-ages pop-up immersive outdoor 3D light festival boasting five million colorful lights across five acres of interactive experiences has made its way! We were graciously hosted by Imaginarium Las Vegas, however, all opinions below are our own – so without further ado, here’s our review of the experience.
Imaginarium Las Vegas
Wind your way through our dreamlike garden with 35,000 roses abloom with LED lights. Make your way through our illuminated forest mazes. Enter a world of fantastical creatures, enveloped in light with more than 25 larger-than-life storybook creatures poised to amaze.
Imaginarium is returning to Las Vegas with more than five million lights, ensuring this will be the most immersive light event you’ve ever experienced.
Westgate Las Vegas 3000 Paradise Rd. Las Vegas, NV 89109
Imaginarium Las Vegas is located in the North Parking Lot at Westgate. It can be a little confusing driving there and parking if you haven’t been before, so here’s what to do:
Once you arrive at Westgate, you are going to drive through the valet area under “THRU” traffic and keep going until the STOP sign that says “North Lot Parking Garage”.
Turn right at the STOP sign.
Then swing left into the North Lot Parking Garage. It is a tight turn, but you can do it!
When parking, you are going to want to park as close to the front entrance elevators as possible (this is right where you pulled in when driving). NOT the back elevators as you will be stuck walking around and through the lot again.
Take the elevators down to the main floor and use the walkway from there around to the parking lot.
Children under 3 are FREE and any individual ages 2 and older requires a ticket for admission.
Use discount code VIP1 for $4 off the ticket price as an exclusive promotion for Nevada Moms readers.
Pros and Cons
Here are some things we liked and didn’t like about our experience.
Two main areas depending on the ages in your group. First half is a lot of roses, fairytale, and photo ops. Second half is a lot of creatures, creature roars, venus flytraps, etc.
Lots of photo opportunities and Instagram-able moments with their mirrors and pop-up themed “rooms”.
There is a lot of walking at this experience. You can bring strollers and wheelchairs, but it is a bit annoying to navigate with them.
There are lots of cords to be aware of when you are walking around, especially if you have children.
If you have younger children who tend to get scared a bit easily, we recommend avoiding the second half where there are more creatures that are making roaring, loud, dinosaur-like sounds.
Can be sensory overload for those sensitive.
I didn’t really notice the maze portion that they noted in their advertisements, however there was one area that did have a small maze.
Tips for Your Visit
Wear Comfy Shoes
There is a lot of walking, especially if you are planning on going through the entire experience. So wear comfy shoes! There are some cords and bumps, so you don’t want to trip.
This experience is babywearing-friendly. I wouldn’t say that it is stroller and wheelchair friendly. While you can bring them, there are lots of bumps and cords that it isn’t the best experience.
Plan for at Least 1 Hour
By the time you arrive, you’ll want to plan for an hour visit depending on how quickly you want to walk through. There are several areas for photo opportunities and per their team, they will have food trucks on-site to enjoy as well.
Use the Discount Code
Highly recommend if you are attending to use the discount code VIP1 for $4 off each ticket purchased. This is an exclusive promotion for our readers, so don’t miss out. Additionally, you can enter your zip code if you are local to check out local rates.
