LAS VEGAS -- Anyone who thinks they have experienced Las Vegas really should look at giving it another try. After the American Idol finalists faced the spotlight in Sin City, FOX31 Denver wanted to track down the latest and greatest Vegas activities and experiences that you can't find anywhere else.

Below is what reporter Mark Meredith and photographer Joshua Montoya profiled in their 24 hour attempt to showcase all that Vegas had to offer.

Ever feel like you need to let off some stress? How about let off some stress with the same guns Stallone and Schwarzenegger made famous in action movies.
In Vegas, not only can you experience a shooting range, you can experience a shooting range that let's you try out at AK-47 and the same guns James Bond use.

With packages starting in the $30 range, visitors will get expert guidance on shooting techniques, safety, and abilities of over two dozen guns. The experience is not aimed only at gun-lovers, but those who have never fired a weapon are encouraged to check it out.

The 12-lane indoor shooting range called Guns & Ammo Garage is open 7 days a week.

For more information or reservations, you can visit their website or call: 702-440-GUNS

Those who are into Yoga need to see how Vegas takes yoga to a whole new level.

In a program only being offered at the Mirage Hotel, guests and the public can experience a yoga class with the famous Vegas dolphins. The one hour session is open to both beginners and experts and is easily one of the most unique experiences you can find in Vegas.

The program is currently offered on weekends. Click here for more information. Classes are limited and reservations are suggested.

Anyone who has been to Vegas or has seen Soderbergh's "Oceans Eleven" knows no trip to Vegas would be complete without a trip to the famous fountain show.

Now a new bar/club experience is giving guests the chance to see the fountains the way they were meant to be seen. Inside "Hyde," the sibling of an LA nightclub, guests are treated with great views and unique cocktails. Their signature "nitrogen infused" cocktail is becoming a staple of happy hour in Vegas.

The strip offers more and more things to do with every waking hour. However, for a truly unique flying experience, zip-lining across downtown Las Vegas easily becomes something the whole family can enjoy.

For roughly $20, guests between 60-250 pounds can fly over hundreds of people all from the comfort of a safety harness. The attraction has become a hit for downtown and the lines are beginning to show just how popular the experience is.

There are some liability waivers required before each flight, but after soaring several hundred feet in the air at high speeds...somethings can be worth the risk.

To make reservations or to get more information you can call: 702.410.7999

Denver knows cold better than most cities, but Vegas certainly takes the "ice" experience to a whole new level.

Inside "Minus 5" bar in the Monte Carlo, a typical drink is far from a typical night out. Before even going inside, guests will put on fur coats, gloves, even hats.

Colorado knows what ice is like but it's rare to find a bar in the state that will serve drinks into cups made of ice itself.

The costs can vary depending on the experience each visitor wants to go for. If you're interested in chilling out, Minus 5 is the best way to get that Denver feeling right in the desert. It's open 7 days a week but you'll want to hear more about It before you go.
Call 702-643-7800 for hours and how you can customize your experience.
