An absolute favorite classic Vegas property, The Circus Circus. Opened on October 18, 1968. Various attractions throughout its' history have included:
Live circus acts, The Midway games, "Tanya" a live elephant, Slots O' Fun, The Adventuredome, and many more.
The hotel's famous midway was featured in the 1971 James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever. One scene included the owner Jay Sarno himself as a sideshow barker.
MGM resorts recently sold the property to Phil Ruffin, the owner of "TI" or "Treasure Island", as I still call it. Fingers crossed that the property doesn't change too much with this transfer of ownership. If you ask me, it's perfect just as it is.
Pin measures 2.5" across 1.75" tall.
