The CombatCon Experience

The CombatCon Experience

With our first year at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino comes more space and thrills! This year we are extremely excited to announce the new CombatCon Experience, which will be located on the convention center lower level, at the bottom of the escalators off the main promenade. As you stroll through this free, open-access, all-ages hall of wonders, you’ll find:


    • A multitude of interactive thematic activities hosted (with accompanying decor) by various combat-enthused groups, giving you the chance to:
      • handle historical replicas of swords and try on armor that would have been worn by actual knights of a bygone age
      • listen to music and try your hand at a game of jugger in the Wasteland Weekend area
      • take part in a Highlander Game in the LARP area
      • swing a lightsaber with the 501st
      • more still to come!!


    • A central Showcase area for live demonstrations: watch apocalypse survivors in full regalia pitching a jugger match or Jedi and Sith facing off for the fate of a galaxy, hear the crack of expertly-wielded whips and the sizzle of electrifying “shock knives,” and more!


    • A marketplace where guests and public alike can peruse and purchase the wares of our amazing vendors


Oh, did we mention this is

FREE, ALL-AGES, and OPEN to the public?!

We’ve never had an experience like this before, so whether you’re a fighter, a fan, or just want a day of free fun for the kids, we’re looking forward to seeing you!
