Looking for a cocktail to steel your nerves before entering Fright Dome? Rock & Rita’s, also at Circus Circus, is offering the Thriller, a mix of vodka, red vermouth, blood-orange marmalade, orange bitters and champagne. And since it’s impossible to mention the Michael Jackson song without thinking of the dance, the bartenders are getting in on the action with special performances throughout October. Guests who dine at Rock & Rita’s also receive two-for-one tickets to the Fright Dome’s new attraction: a 13-minute tour of 13 rooms on the hotel’s 13th floor. Gulp. Can we get another Thriller over here?
1.5 ounce vodka
.5 ounce Red Vermouth
1 teaspoon Blood Orange Marmalade
2 dashes Angostura Orange Bitter
Combine ingredients, shake, double strain and pour into a cocktail glass. Top with champagne.
The hallmark of the 3,767-room Circus Circus Hotel, Casino and Theme Park in Las Vegas lies under the Big Top, where circus acts perform on the Midway Stage as part of the world's largest permanent circus.
The Adventuredome, America’s largest indoor theme park, offers five acres of climate-controlled fun for all ages.
Guests of Circus Circus may dine in a variety of restaurants including THE Steak House, rated the best steakhouse by Zagat and recognized a record 20 times in Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas” awards, and Rock & Rita’s, where flair bartenders and live music enliven the scene.
Circus Circus also offers a casino, wedding chapel, meeting and convention space and a 30-acre RV park.
