How to Plan a Las Vegas Family Reunion

Staying in contact with family can be tough in the busy lives we cultivate for ourselves, that’s why reunions are so wonderful. Whether it’s the family you grew up with, your military friends that became family, or class reunions—organizing an event for a big group of people that mean the most to you can be tough. At The Venetian Resort we’ve put together a list of family reunion ideas that can appeal to everyone.

Room Blocks

Families come in small and big packages. If you’ll be needing more than a couple suites for your Las Vegas family reunion, our Celebrations Team can help coordinate room blocks so that everyone in your close-knit bunch is just steps away from each other. We can even customize gift baskets that can be delivered to them during their stay.

Event Space

Depending on the size of your Vegas family reunion, you can reserve one of our hospitality suites or space in The Prestige at The Palazzo. Each venue can be configured in a number of ways to suit different types of events. If you need access to televisions for fun family video memories or photographs, we can help accommodate that as well.

The VOID

Virtual reality on a grand scale—that’s The VOID and it’s one of the best group activities in Las Vegas. Instead of sitting in one place with a headset, you can physically interact with your environment. Your group of four is outfitted with special mobile computers and helmets that comes with a microphone so you can communicate with your team. Then you’re sent into a physical environment that allows you to interact with the virtual world you’ve traveled to for a whole-body immersive experience. They’re always working on new ways of storytelling so check out what universes you can explore today.

minus5° Ice Experience

Looking for unique family reunion ideas? Chill out with your family surrounded by 90 tons of ice at minus5°. This one-of-a-kind ice experience is perfect for family reunions of all ages. Choose a package and you’ll be outfitted with gloves and a warm parka or faux fur coat, then you’ll be transported to an interactive winter wonderland. As you explore the ice architecture you can enjoy beverages in glasses completely made of ice.

Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds is known around the world for its incredible wax figures and it’s one of the best family reunion ideas. You can interact with the wax figures of celebrities and historical people throughout the venue. It’s a great opportunity to capture fun photos with your family. Madame Tussauds has expanded into the VR world and has just launched a new experience called Virtual Room. In a team of 2-4 people you become time-travelers who are tasked with saving the world.

Art and Architecture

Throughout The Venetian Resort you’ll find gorgeous artwork. Take your family on a tour and explore the hand-painted frescos, the Armillary Sphere, and so much more. For a more interactive twist to this family reunion idea—organize a scavenger hunt. Instruct your family members to take creative selfies of themselves with the art, give everyone a time limit, and choose a restaurant as a meeting place when the time’s up. As you’re enjoying your meal, invite everyone to share all the fun pictures they took along the way.

Gaming

It is Las Vegas and for the family members that are old enough to enjoy the action on the casino floor, there are plenty of options for them to choose from. If they’re new to table games, The Venetian Resort offers complimentary gaming lessons. Take a class to learn the ins and outs of craps, blackjack, roulette, and poker. It’s one of the best family reunion ideas to take advantage of while you’re in Las Vegas.

Many of our restaurants have private dining rooms to accommodate groups, which is perfect because a well-fed Las Vegas family reunion, is a happy reunion.
