Sorry kids... gotta be 21 and they're VERY tight about that. They're allowed to walk through the casino (very quickly and only with an adult). 18 & 15 is a hard age for Vegas... too young to gamble, too old for the kiddie stuff. They'd probably like the IMAX theatre in Caesars Palace, see the volcano show at Treasure Island. Stay at the "Trop" (Tropicana) and they could spend all day in the lovely pools/jacuzzi. They give you lounge chairs and bring you drinks. Then they can walk across the walkway by themselves to the Excalibur and check out the shops on the second floor, or go down to the bottom floor and play the arcade games. Then they can take the little tram from the Trop across the street to the MGM Grand and spend all day at their indoor amusement park - roller coaster and everything!

Okay now for the real fun stuff! After you see all the hokey side shows! West of Vegas is a place called Buffalo Bills, it has the worlds tallest roller coaster and will scare the @#$%25 out of any veteran coaster rider. Hoover Dam and Lake Mead - We were there last week and rented a boat from Las Vegas Bay Marina, $20/hr, 5hrs, we had a blast. The lake is beautiful, clean & cool. Take lunch or BBQ grills are built on the boats (take charcoal). Tour the Dam, it is impressive. If you inline skate, take those too, ONLY if you are a good skater. The cabs will run you over in a heartbeat, but there are great places to skate. Mt. Charleston is fun, you can rent mt. bikes and hike there. Hope this helps!!

Just got back from out trip to Vegas, Grand Canyon, Colorado Springs. In Vegas, the Aladin has a wonderful dinner--steak and lobster for 7.99 (my 15 year old has always wanted lobster and at this price it was great) While in Vegas we took the tour of Hoover Dam. The weather was hot, but I am from Florida and the 105-107 in Nevada felt a LOT cooler than the 86 we have in Florida with the humidity!!! My son seemed to enjoy the dinner show at the Excalibur. It runs $30 a person, but it includes dinner and tip.
