Las Payasadas is a town located in northern Bone County, San Andreas, a few miles away from Las Venturas. It is featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Road signage indicates that the town has a population of 211 in 1992. The town sits on a cliff, with Verdant Meadows visible in the valley below. The town's most prominent feature is a large model chicken with a constantly bobbing head. When entering the town from the either side (east or west), a sign is visible, reading: "Las Payasadas, home of "The Big Pecker", The World's Largest Cock".

The name Las Payasadas translates roughly from Spanish to horseplay, clowning around, or antics, a possible reference to the lack of seriousness afforded to this town owing to its giant chicken.

This town is loosely based on Kingman, Arizona.
