Counts Kustoms Schedule
The Counts Kustoms facility is open every day of the year from 10 am until 4 pm. So, if you want to go sightseeing or take the free tour, it will suit you on any of the days you are visiting Las Vegas.
However, the tours do not have the same availability. The most popular tour, the one that takes you on a half-day tour of the main stages, is only available Monday through Friday on a single daily pass that starts at 9 am and lasts about 3 hours.
The night tour is only available one day a week, on Tuesdays, and also has a single daily pass that starts at 4 pm and lasts 4 hours, so by the time it ends, it will be dark and it will be time for dinner.
How to get to Counts Kustoms
The truth is that this iconic place is quite well located, halfway between the great attractions of the Strip Avenue and the Downtown area. Specifically, Counts Kustoms is located at 2714 S Highland Dr, near the Circus Circus casino.
To get there you have several options. If you have rented a car for your vacation in Las Vegas, the easiest way is to drive to the entrance of Presidio Street and park in the parking lot at the entrance.
If you move by public transport, it is best to get off at the bus stop199 No Bridge after Sammy Davis Jr and walk about 15 minutes.
However, if you don't want to take the walk just to get to the site, you should know that the two paid tours have included in the price the pick-up at the hotel or, if not, at a meeting point.
Can I go to Counts Kustoms with children?
Of course, if you come to Las Vegas with children they are invited to this kind of activity. Even Danny Koker himself says that this is a plan to do with the family and share with the little ones the love for the engine and all its history and antiques.
It is a safe and suitable activity for the whole family and that, in addition, the little ones will enjoy being able to get into such a special car and see real works of art of all shapes and colors. One of them even in the shape of a hot dog!
Perhaps the only activity that would not be highly recommended is if you choose the Tuesday night tour mode, as the activity ends in a bar and in the U.S. they are very strict with the law, so they will look askance at people under 21.
What level of English do I need to participate in Counts Kustoms activities?
It is true that in Las Vegas almost the only language you will hear is English, despite the strong Latino influence in the area. Consequently, the official tour will also be in English. However, this should not be an impediment.
All these types of activities are designed for tourists who come from abroad and, most of the time, do not speak the language.
This is why the tours are designed to be enjoyed without having to interact too much. The fun part of this experience is being able to get into one of the original cars and see the different exhibits and scenery. This, without a doubt, is a universal language.
However, it doesn't hurt to go to Las Vegas with some knowledge of the language. Not so much for Counts Kustoms, but to be able to enjoy the best shows in the city andmake the most of it in a more enriching way.
Is there an official souvenir store at Counts Kustoms?
If you are a real fan of the show "Locos por los coches" you can't go home without taking some souvenirs or gifts from the official store. Inside the facilities you can find a store with all kinds of Counts Kustoms merchandising for you to choose the one you like the most.
Also, if you participate in the tours, either the day or night tour, they will give you a discount voucher so you can buy a souvenir with a small discount. You can choose from t-shirts, caps, glasses, posters and much more.
Is it worth the experience?
Las Vegas is a city that leaves no one indifferent. It has hundreds of activities, all spectacular and eye-catching and, of course, is the scene of great TV shows like "Crazy about cars".
That is why, if you have come to spend 4 days or more in Las Vegas and you have always liked the show and the world of cars and repairs, you have plenty of time to enjoy this experience that will certainly be worth it.
The city has many faces and many ways to see it. You can make several tours of the city but none of them will be similar and, in this aspect, the tour proposed by Counts Kustoms is unique and designed especially for all fans to feel part for a few hours of the program that swept the History Channel years ago.
