Super Bowl 2024: Placer.ai’s Postgame Foot Traffic Analysis

Super Bowl LVIII was a memorable event on and off the field. Rising-star quarterback Brock Purdy of the San Francisco 49ers led a valiant effort – though ultimately fell short – against the Kansas City Chiefs and their veteran starter Patrick Mahomes. The game made history as the first-ever Super Bowl hosted in Las Vegas; plenty of cause for celebration – if the city needed any. And because Vegas is packed with world-class entertainment venues just steps away from the stadium, Super Bowl 2024 was poised to be a bash from the get-go. We used the latest location analytics to take a closer look at the Vegas hotspots where fans and celebrities celebrated (or drowned their sorrows) after the game. 

Hotels & Casinos Hit the Jackpot

Alongside the excitement of the game inside Las Vegas’s Allegiant Stadium, the party atmosphere of The Entertainment Capital of the World did not disappoint. Compared to the two previous Super Bowls, this year’s contest had the highest percentage of postgame hotel & casino visits – a whopping 38.4% of stadium visitors on Super Bowl Sunday visited a hotel or casino immediately after the game. 

These venues have numerous attractions – restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and hotel rooms – so it’s difficult to know what specifically drove elevated foot traffic. However, it’s fair to say that postgame parties were a significant factor.

The Top Party Spots

Diving deeper into the data revealed which Vegas venues drove the most postgame traffic from stadium visitors. Caesars Palace came out on top, welcoming 6.3% of postgame foot traffic. Notably, the hotel’s Omnia nightclub was the location of the 49ers' postgame gathering where Lil Wayne attempted to alleviate the heartbreak of the losing squad. 

Las Vegas’ Harry Reid Int’l Airport – where some fans and staff likely made a quick exit after the game – took second place, and Wynn Las Vegas was the third most-visited postgame location and cemented itself as a Super Bowl party destination – having hosted the champs last year as well. This time around, big stars in Chiefs Kingdom –  including Patrick and Brittany Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Taylor Swift – showed up for an after-party at Wynn Las Vegas’ XS Nightclub to celebrate the victory to the music of Marshmello and Jelly Roll. The hotel’s Encore Beach Club put on an additional after-party honoring Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, and Usher – who performed the Super Bowl halftime show. Ludacris, who also appeared on stage at halftime, was among the big names in attendance. 

Wynn Las Vegas, with 3.7% of postgame traffic, was the fourth most-visited postgame venue. The hotel’s Zouk Nightclub hosted the Chiefs’ official after-party celebration, with Travis Kelce, Taylor Swift, Megan Fox, and Machine Gun Kelly in attendance. 

The Party Doesn’t Stop

The Super Bowl LVIII celebrations didn’t end on the Las Vegas Strip. Per tradition, at the end of the game, Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes and his family declared “We’re going to Disneyland!” The following day, the Mahomes family was at a sold-out Disneyland Resort to celebrate the win and take part in the iconic victory parade.

The parade – scheduled for 2 pm – proved popular among Disneyland guests. Location intelligence showed that hourly visits to Disneyland climbed during the lead-up to the parade and peaked at the parade’s start time.

This One’s in the Books

Las Vegas provided a super-sized entertainment backdrop for sports’ biggest stage and one of the most thrilling Super Bowls to date. Location intelligence from the 2024 Super Bowl suggests that fans who make the trip look beyond the in-stadium action for ways to keep the celebrations going after the final whistle.
