Where to Hop Onto a Mechanical Bull In Las Vegas

Not surprisingly, groups commonly seek out mechanical bulls in Las Vegas. After all, what makes for a better girls’ weekend, guys’ trip, bachelor, or bachelorette party in Las Vegas than bonding over your own bull-riding incompetence? Nothing.

While mechanized bulls are few and far between, there are options on both the Strip and Fremont Street, however, I’d advise reading up on the Fremont Street “bull” before visiting… just to make sure it’s your cup of tea :).

Mechanical Bulls On The Strip

Gilley’s at TI: The western-themed BBQ restaurant on the north end of the Strip has a mechanical bull that challenges riders to stay on for a full 8 seconds. In addition to bull riding, Gilley’s offers a dance floor and free live music on Friday and Saturday nights.

Chayo Mexicano at LINQ: Found in the Linq Promenade, Chayo Mexicano offers a mechanical bull in addition to Mexican food, tequila, and a unique selection of beers for indoor or outdoor dining. The cost to ride Chayo’s bull is $10.

Mechanical “Bulls” on Fremont Street

The Nerd at Neonopolis: A bar focused on all things “nerdy” (think video games and cosplay), The Nerd can be found in Neonopolis right on Fremont Street.

Note that instead of a mechanical bull, The Nerd’s ride resembles male genitalia and costs $5 to ride.

While some may prefer that setup, others may want to opt for another bull-riding bar. In addition to the mechanical ride, The Nerd offers bowling lanes and arcade games.

Away From The Strip

Stoney’s Rockin’ Country Bar: Just south of resorts on the Las Vegas Strip, Stoney’s is a short Uber/Lyft ride from the main tourist corridor. A “rockin’ country” bar, Stoney’s has a mechanical bull in addition to frequent live music (see Stoney’s live entertainment calendar). Better yet, riding the bull is completely free.

Hopefully, I was able to help you find a bull to ride and create some memories around – Have a blast, and good luck!
