Fodor's Review

This erupting volcano, a 54-foot mountain-fountain surrounded by a lake of miniature fire spouts, is a must-see free attraction on the Strip. Several times an hour the whole area erupts in flames, smoke, and eerily backlit water that looks like lava. The thundering island percussion sound track was created by Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart. The best vantage point is near the main drive entrance, or on the east side of Las Vegas Boulevard in front of Casino Royale.

Volcano at Mirage Review

It's OK, but not very dramatic, high tech or realistic. A younger child would probably think it is neat, otherwise I wouldn't go out of my way or wait to see it.

Impressive if corny

One of the big outdoor attractions along The Strip, impressive in its way if kind of corny and kitchy. At least it's free.

Valcanoe Experience

This is an attraction that fades in the neon lights of the strip. It is very aww inspiring to watch the vast pyrotechnics. However - You must know that like the Sirens of Treasure Island show, they will cancel the Volcanoe shows if the weather poses a safety threat.. this would include high winds! Nice to visit... but you won't linger long!
