Circus Circus, Las Vegas, 1977. This is not a horror movie still, but a scene designed to attract the business of actual families in 1970s Las Vegas. The clown is Blinko, hired by the resort as ambassador of goodwill, strolling the midway, greeting guests and inflating balloons for children. Blinko (Ernie Burch) retired from Circus Circus in 1990 and was honored by hotel officials and fellow performers.
INDOOR AMUSEMENT PARK Adventuredome at Circus Circus Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas NV Rapid motion and glass don’t mix—except in Vegas, where crazy ideas always seem to work out for the best. Case in point: this geodesic dome’s Canyon Blaster—the world’s only indoor double-corkscrew/double-loop roller coaster. Fearless visitors can also test their stomachs on the spinning Disk’O, a tower-drop ride called the Sling Shot, and an indoor bungee fall.
