On a recent visit to Reno we took our 13 and 15 year olds over to Circus Circus to check out their midway as something to do. My assessment would be this, if you don't mind throwing a good chunk of change out for you kids to play midway games with about the same odds of winning as the adult games downstairs, then this place is for you. Obviously, the prizes can be won, because there were a ton of people walking around with garbage bags filled with mini stuffed animals they had won, but we just kept asking ourselves "Who really needs a garbage bag full of mini stuffed animals?" Oh, and the midway circus shows, don't get your hopes up too high about them. Although the talent is good, each show lasts between five to eight minutes long with thirty to fifty minutes in-between the shows. It's a long wait for such a short show. If you are planning on staying there all day you could see all of them, but we would wonder how you could stay there all day. I guess it's the same mentality as the people that pull those slot machine arms for hours on end. Overall, if you just want to bring the kids to play a few games, this will fit the bill.
