Las Vegas is an ever-changing playground of spectacular shows, flashy casinos and overwhelming nightlife. From entertainers to luxury hotels and restaurants, Las Vegas is constantly adding new world-class attractions to ensure visitors have a unique and unforgettable experience.

This year will bring quite a few exciting additions to the City of Lights, including new museums, a massive entertainment venue and a year-round horror-themed experience by Universal Studios.

Here are six of the best new attractions coming to Vegas in 2023:

1. Punk Rock Museum

Las Vegas has its fair share of quirky museums, but one of the most anticipated openings this year is the Punk Rock Museum. The museum, which opens on March 10, will display items such as show flyers, photos and clothing from famous punk rockers.

Guests can even play instruments contributed by their favorite bands. Possibly the highlight of the whole experience are the guided tours (starting in April) of actual punk rock legends. General admission tickets to the museum are $30, but a guided tour carries a hefty price tag of $100.

2. Museum of Illusions

Another new museum joining the strip is the Museum of Illusions. With locations in over 30 cities around the world, this will be the largest yet at over 15,000 square meters. Visitors young and old can experience perspective-changing rooms, art installations and immersive illusions. Originally scheduled to open in November 2022, it has been delayed to early spring 2023, but a more specific date has yet to be announced.

Prices for the Vegas location are also unknown, but elsewhere worldwide range from $10 to $25. The Museum of Illusions franchise is growing rapidly, adding several new locations stateside and around the world. Some of the upcoming US locations include Denver, Houston and Boston.

3. MSG sphere

Despite standing up against some pretty iconic buildings, this massive entertainment venue is sure to stand out on The Strip. When completed, it will be the largest spherical structure on the planet and will have the capacity to accommodate over 17,000 people. MSG Sphere’s wraparound LED screen will provide a fully immersive experience for guests, and the venue will host both live performances and other multi-sensory media events.

If that’s not enough to impress, the exterior screen can also be customized so that all of Las Vegas can be seen. The Sphere’s construction has also been delayed, but visitors can expect a launch date this autumn, with the legendary U2 scheduled as the first act.

4. Atomic Golf

STRAT is another icon of the Las Vegas skyline. Formerly the “Stratosphere”, it is home to the tallest freestanding observation tower in the United States. The complex includes a hotel, casino, SkyPod, several restaurants, a resort-style pool, a roller coaster and, soon, the Atomic Golf Range.

This 4-story digital golf arcade will feature interactive golf games, eateries, restaurants and lounges, and even a meeting space. It is set to open in late 2023.

5. Universal immersive horror experience

Universal Parks and Resorts announced this brand new attraction in January as a result of the wildly popular Halloween Horror Nights. This will be the company’s first permanent horror experience and will be an expansion of the Area 15 entertainment complex – an expansion of 110,000 square meters.

The attraction, which has yet to be officially named, will feature seasonal and themed immersive horror experiences, as well as dining and bars.

6. Game of Thrones: Dragons

Another recent announcement is the Game of Thrones: Dragons attraction. Very little has been revealed about this upcoming attraction, leaving fans to speculate what the experience actually entails. It is implied that it is not a theatrical performance, but still a highly immersive experience.

The goal is to allow guests to “enter the world of Westeros,” according to the official website. While the site doesn’t provide much information, those interested in the mystical experience can sign up for updates.
