February 18, 2018 Venice Greaves

Jean is a small commercial town in Clark County, Nevada, located approximately 12 mi (19 km) north of the Nevada-California state line along Interstate 15. Las Vegas is located about 30 mi (48 km) to the north. There are no residents of Jean, but many people in nearby communities like Primm and Sandy Valley have Jean listed in their mailing address because it is the location of the main post office for the 89019 ZIP code.

Seven Magic Mountains

Reviewed By BT993TT - Ipoh, Malaysia

Although it was interesting to see and just a short drive away from Las Vegas, it was a bit of a let down as I was expecting something more and larger in size. Nevertheless, it was nice as I was test driving a BMW M5 at the same time and enjoyed the drive there and back! It was a nice stop for some photo-taking. Ample parking but it is unpaved and the price is right .... free!

Sin City Skydiving

Reviewed By Plum378 - Hamburg, Germany

I'm not really sure why I agreed to go skydiving, seeing as I'm fairly scared of falling and flying, but something in me was determined to get over these fears and do it. I was a bit hesitant to use Sin City Skydiving based on their website but the positive reviews on here gave me hope. We got picked up from our hotel in a battered van and were immediately handed a waiver to sign our lives away, which was both funny and a bit serious at the same time...

At Jean Airport we were suited and harnessed up, and went up in a tiny plane to jump two at a time. My tandem instructor was Jace and I honestly wouldn't have gotten through this without him. I told him I was scared and he put me right at ease, talking to me in the plane, telling me I could do it, and generally reassuring me. When it was time to jump, he didn't give me time to back out - before I knew it we were flying through the air, doing somersaults, freefalling for what felt like an eternity before the parachute opened. It was AMAZING. I felt pretty sick after the freefall (I think a combo of fear, adrenaline and motion sickness) so Jace made the flight under parachute as smooth as possible for me (and handed me a sick bag, which thankfully I didn't need!!) It was really great fun and I can't wait to do another one (with motion sickness tablet this time, ha!) I recommend getting the jump filmed, especially if it's your first one. I have personally watched my video 100 times and if you want to see it for yourself it's at https://www.youtube.com/watch?edit=vd&v=BI1mj3eMGII

These guys clearly love what they do and although they aren't as shiny as their rivals next door, they were professional and safety-conscious. We all had so much fun with them that I would definitely jump with them again if I am ever in Nevada. Thanks Sin City Skydiving and especially Jace for this fantastic experience.

The Haunted Lockdown

You've seen it on TV… Now Experience it Yourself In August of 2013, the haunted 100 year old Pioneer Saloon was featured on the popular television show, "Ghost Adventures." The "GAC" team were locked down, with their equipment, in the saloon all night. During their intense stay they uncovered very strong and compelling evidence of ghostly existence in this historical Nevada landmark.

Reviewed By Jackbear - Los Angeles, CA

I did the Haunted Lockdown with a paranormal group. The staff wants to make this an interesting experience so you won't be disappointed. The lockdown is inside the historic Pioneer Saloon built in 1913. If there are ghosts, this would be a likely place to find them.

We toured a few sites outside the the saloon and then went to the Clark Gable-Carole Lombard Memorial Room. Lombard's plane crashed into a nearby mountain and it was here that Gable awaited word on the fate of his beloved and her mother. Sadly, there were no survivors and bits of the plane are still on the mountain.

Our group set up their ghost hunting equipment and we waited. Our host, Jill, explained the history of the saloon and the various sightings that have been experienced--a jukebox suddenly turning on and more. A cheating poker player was shot, a woman murdered, a bartender committed suicide in front of the customers and so on. There are bullet holes in the wall.

It was a fascinating experience. We all felt that we were not alone. I have a ghost meter that has never shown much activity in other locations yet on this night it went off madly and regularly.

It took a while for the saloon to clear out but after midnight, we had the place to ourselves.
If you dare, expect the experience of a lifetime.

The Star of the Desert Arena is a 6,500 seat arena known for concerts, rodeo and boxing action.

Reviewed By MoviemakerLasVegas - Las Vegas

There is NOTHING in Jean. Primm is a few miles farther from Las Vegas and on the Nevada/California border. It is an XLNT venue for what it is. Great sound and more than adequate lighting. Seating is plastic stackable chairs. Bar service is a short walk as is restrooms. They feature country and older acts. We have seen the following; Reba, twice, great show. Frankie Valli, great show. Gladys Knight, great show. Englebert, great show. Liza Minelli, good show where she was trying out new material. Neal Sedaka, good show for a well-worn pro, as was the show from Paul Anka. Beach Boys was a drag because after the opening number, they encourage the audience to stand. Since standing was not our desire, we spent the next hour LISTENING to the Beach Boys and watching a row of 60 year old wiggling and shaking tushes at much too close range. We gave that show a walking ovation.

Had a chance to see some stars of Vegas....outer space stars that is. A very cool experience learning about the constellations and star formations. Chuck was a highly informative guide and quite frankly...knew his stuff about the stars and astronomy. A highly recommended experience and includes a meal. Shuttle bus is also available if you need one. Just call ahead to make sure it's available.

Primm Valley Golf Club

Reviewed By mauiwolf - Las Vegas, Nevada

I've always liked the two courses here and they were always in great condition. But this visit gave me a course that looked like they've fired their superintendent and no one knows what to do. There were weeds everywhere. The fairways looked like there were ten different kinds of grass growing. The greens had some spotty areas. The bunkers were lacking sand and the plastic liner was poking out all over the place. It was disappointing.

I like the layout. It's a fun round. But the conditioning needs to improve. Even the bathrooms in the clubhouse look like no one cares.

Primm Center

Reviewed By Bonnie C - Corona, California

It is next door to the Primm Resort so you can stay inside to walk over. The hours are 10a-8p; 7 days/week. So convenient in that regard. They also have a food court, so if you can't find anything 'healthy' at Primm walk on over. La Salsa has good fish tacos!!!
You won't find 'deals' that you think you might. I did find a few items at Wms/Sonoma and Nike is not a deal place. Same prices as what you would pay in the stores, a few discounts.
If you are a serious shopper, then you have lots to choose.

Primm Valley Golf Club - Desert Course

This 18-hole golf course, part of the Primm Resorts, changes elevation frequently and offers magnificent views of the surrounding area of mountains and desert.

Reviewed By Chris M - Elk Grove Village, Illinois

Been coming to Vegas for several years now with 12 to 16 friends. Golf comes first! We always include the Primm Desert Course for one of our stops for the week we are here. Beautifully kept up, fantastic views of the mountains and a truly fair track to play for all skill levels. It really helps if you have a slight draw off the tee! The ball rolls for miles! Like they say "Nothing rolls like a ball! " is quite true here. Staff from pro shop to grounds crew were helpful, friendly and willing to go the extra mile to serve. We will keep this destination on our list for as long as we keep this tradition going. There are a lot of options for golf in Vegas, make sure you make Primm Desert one of them!

Gold Strike Hotel & Gambling Hall

Reviewed By gpa194646 - Barstow, California

My fiancé and I stayed overnight on June 25th. We were playing at the bar on the Keno machine. My fiancés machine went hay-wire and went into Auto-Pilot and would not stop. She lost all her money cause machine could not be stopped. Called for service but to no avail. An idiot finally arrived and was rude, unconcerned, argumentative and just plain NASTY. He obviously was some sort of floor-manager. He was well dressed with a suit, thin, with a shaved head. He instantly accused me of trying to get something out of that ordeal. I was obviously INSULTED and FURIOUS. I will never ever patronize your establishment due to that incident. I do not appreciate being called a LIAR. I won't even stop at your establishment to spit on your grounds. This occurred on the 25th of June and still very angry with that individual and establishment. You have forever lost a good customer and when asked by friends I will tell them of my NIGHTMARE at your establishment.

The Soaring Center

Reviewed By dtoliphant7 - Las Vegas, Nevada

My experience with this company seems to be a reiteration of what others have already said in their reviews. My wife purchased a gift certificate in order for me to have lessons ultimately leading to certification with their instructor, Michael. Multiple visits to the airfield yielded little in the way of meaningful ground lessons and/or flights. Several times I found myself simply waiting for literally hours at the airfield for someone to show up to operate either the winch, or the tow plane in order to get up in the air. The tow plane seemed to constantly be under maintenance, or pilots weren't available, and the winch typically took three attempts to get airborne due to broken tow cables. In all of my visits, all of which were during appropriate weather conditions, I experienced only three flights that never lasted more than ten minutes. While Michael may be a nice guy, he's certainly not organized and doesn't meet the definition of a professional, and the people he would hastily arrange to operate the winch was either his wife on break from her actual job, or another student which made the entire experience seem awkward due to the lengthy wait times, excessive excuses, and lack of real professionalism. Realizing that the substantial amount of money my wife paid towards the certificate was not going to be placed to good use, I politely requested a partial refund that both parties could agree to and find fair. After multiple emails, Michael's wife replied that we would work something out, but after multiple emails and phone calls afterwards I haven't heard anything since. As per the consistent history provided by these reviews, this company takes your money and runs with it, producing mediocre services, if any at all are even given. If you're like me and would like to learn to be a sailplane pilot, I highly encourage you to seek lessons and training elsewhere although it may be a lengthy drive, but at least you'll be getting credible, reliable training in exchange for your funds instead of wasting your time and money. Soaring Nevada in Minden, NV is an excellent alternative, but there are also the Southern California Soaring Academy outside LA, and Arizona Soaring outside of Phoenix.
