LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas may be jokingly called Disneyland for adults, but there are plenty of spots along the Strip that can attract and entertain anyone regardless of age.

Here is a nonexhaustive list of family-friendly activities to do with the whole group on the Strip.

Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N.

11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily; Price: $44.95 for children ages 4-11, $54.95 for adults; Within Treasure Island, 3300 S Las Vegas Boulevard

In this interactive exhibit, guests can peruse an 80,000-square-foot space filled with authentic props and costumes from the Marvel Avengers movie franchise.

The Exhibition

11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily; $32 for general admission; Within Luxor, 3900 S. Las Vegas Boulevard

For the medically minded and morbidly curious group, check out the Bodies exhibit, showcasing 13 whole-body specimens and more than 260 organs. The exhibition gives an up-close look to different organ systems.

Noon to midnight daily; $8.50 for youth and $23.50 for adults between noon and 4:59 p.m., $17.50 for youth and $34.75 for adults between 7 p.m. and midnight; at the Linq Promenade, 3535 S. Las Vegas Boulevard

This center-Strip observation wheel is the largest in North America at 550 feet tall. It takes 30 minutes to complete one revolution, a great amount of time to take in 360-views of the Strip and Las Vegas Valley.

Midway and Adventuredome Theme Park

Midway hours 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays, 11 a.m. to midnight Fridays and Saturdays. Adventuredome hours change seasonally.

Allow children to play to the fullest with a Midway games spot and a separate five-acre theme park at the Adventuredome. Play arcade and midway games, ride roller coasters and enjoy movie and TV-themed dark rides familiar to the whole family.

Shark Reef Aquarium

10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Tickets start at $29; Mandalay Bay, 3950 S. Las Vegas Boulevard

Ocean lovers can enjoy marine life in this 105,000-square-foot aquarium, the only accredited facility in Nevada. It features a shark tunnel and guests can add on stingray and shark feeds for additional prices.

Pinball Hall of Fame

10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, open until 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays; Entrance is free, but bring quarters to play pinball; 4925 S. Las Vegas Boulevard

This warehouse is 25,000 square feet full of “pinball and nothing but pinball,” according to its website. A nonprofit organization runs the pinball museum, allowing visitors to play retro and modern versions of the classic arcade game.
