There is a rock climbing attraction inside the Adventure Dome at Circus Circus, and yes it gets very hot here in Las Vegas in the summer.

We don't have any water parks, but the hotel pools are usually pretty good for kids, depending upon which property you're staying at and at which time of the year you're coming to visit.

Those ages that you stated for your kids, are tough ones. They are too young to really understand a lot (and in some instances that's a good thing) and might become over-tired and bored at walking in and out of hotels all day.

If you can venture off the Strip at all, the Lied Children's Discovery Museum is wonderful, the Museum of Natural History (both of these on Las Vegas Blvd, North) there is a rock climbing place on West Charleston Blvd., mini-putt putt golf on So. Fort Apache Road/Patrick, the Las Vegas Mini Gran Prix to name a few things your kids would enjoy. Unfortunately, they are not located on the Las Vegas Strip and you'd need a car to get to any of these places I just mentioned in this paragraph.

Give me more time, I might think of a couple more incidental things kids that age would be interested in, on the Strip, but there ain't much.

In my opinion, (and it's only my opinion) is that the best thing to do is leave the kids at home with a caregiver and you and hubby take a wonderful Vegas vacation!

They pick you up from the strip.
If you haven't been to the Grand Canyon, you may try it.

and I agree. I definately do not want my kids to see/hear things that are inappropriate. so here is the problem:
I don't drive.
is tere a hotel near, say, red rock canyon? and is red rock canyon a walking distance from the childrens museum or the rock climbing...?
Just so you know, I was only referring to the Strip. This especially rings true as it gets later in the evening. Children do not belong on the strip at midnight IMO, however, I see it all the time.

The tour bus usually comes to the strip in the early morning (around 7 am)...then they will take care everything for you. You will probably return to Vegas around 9pm.
