Vegas is located in a desert. And when it’s summer in the desert, well, you do the math. So, yes, it’s hot out, but you’re smart because you’re reading this article and in about one minute, you’re going to know how to beat the heat at a dozen of Sin City’s coolest places, like a place where you can slide through a shark tank, or where to get a cocktail made with liquid nitrogen. We’re pretty sure you’ll be marking these experiences down as “unforgettable.” And to get started, follow these seven tips:

#1: Frozen cocktails: If you’re over 21 and need a quick way to cool down, hit up one of the many daiquiri bars you can find up and down the Las Vegas Strip. Two of the most popular names in the game include the Purple Zebra and Fat Tuesday, where you’ll find a large selection of frozen drinks in plenty of flavors.

#2 Frozen custard for celebrities. The tip here is Luv-It’s Frozen Custard; and you’ll be screaming for custard, not ice cream, when you get a taste of this icy treat. This downtown hangout is frequented by celebrities, locals and tourists alike. It’s found on Las Vegas Boulevard just north of Stratosphere.

#3: An ice bar: At Minus5 Ice Lounge, the bar, the chairs and the sculptures are made entirely of ice, perfect for days when the mercury’s on the rise. It’s named for the frosty Celsius temperature the bar is kept at, and everything inside is made from 100 percent pure Canadian ice.

#4: An ice spa: This is unlike any spa you’ve experienced. At Qua Baths & Spa’s Arctic ice room, guests enjoy the sensation of falling snow and crystal ice chips in this wet area of Caesars Palace’s spa; it’ll cool you down in a heartbeat.

#5: Swim-up blackjack tables: Got the hankering to gamble out-of-doors? Do it at the pool! Try Caesars Palace’s perfectly manicured Garden of the Gods.

#6: Waterslides with sharks. The Tank happens to be Las Vegas’ only downtown water slide, but it’s the sharks that are the real story here. As you curve your way through the slide, you’ll be passing through the center of a very sleek shark tank that’s at the center of a pool. We’re not sure how you beat this one, but we do know you’ll find this experience at the Golden Nugget.

#7: A big waterpark in the desert. Cowabunga Canyon, the largest water park in Nevada, sits on 41 acres and features more than 25 water slides and attractions. You’ll also find Cowabunga Bay on the other side of town in Henderson.
