Chaos at Las Vegas Circus Circus hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip in Winchester, Nevada (USA).
Circus Circus hotel casino is located on the Las Vegas strip. It belongs to MGM Resorts International. It offers 3,770 newly refreshed rooms, 9,290m² (100,000 square feet) of gaming, entertainment (Adventuredrome, Chuck Jones Experience, and free world class circus acts), swimming pools, and a wedding chapel.
Las Vegas Circus Circus is the only Las Vegas hotel starring the world's largest permanent circus and America's largest indoor theme park, the Adventuredome. The latter offers more than 20 rides and attractions, such as Chaos, Canyon Blaster, and (as from December 2013) El Loco coaster.
Canyon Blaster is the world's only indoor double-loop, double-corkscrew roller coaster speeding through the Adventuredome at 88.5 km/h (55 mph). Chaos twirls riders counterclockwise, backward and upside-down. The variation of speed and motion makes each ride unpredictable and assures that no two rides will be the same. El Loco roller coaster features negative G drops and gravity-defying turns and over-the-edge twist.
Other attractions in the Adventuredome include Disk'O, FX Theatre, Canyon Cars, Sand Pirates, Frog Hopper, Thunderbirds, Miner Mike, Xtreme Zone, Xtreme Zone, Arcade, free Clown Shows, and many more.
The Chuck Jones Experience introduces folks to the legendary artist behind such favorite characters as the Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, and many more. It has creative art projects encouraged and guided by teachers.
Circus Circus has the only RV park on the Strip providing additional accommodations.
Gondola Rides at The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino on the east side of the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada (USA).
The Venetian Resort is a luxury Venice-themed hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip. This 36-story hotel is one of the largest resorts in the Las Vegas Valley. It is owned by Las Vegas Sands Corporation (Sheldon Adelson) which opened The Palazzo Resort adjacent to The Venetian in 2008. With more than 7,000 rooms and suites, both hotels form one of the largest hotel complexes in the world.
The TAO nightclub at The Venetian boasts a 40-foot-long outside terrace with stunning views of the Las Vegas Strip, gorgeous go-go dancers, state-of-the-art audio and lighting systems, and two main rooms, each featuring varying music formats.
The 50-story Palazzo is one of the tallest buildings in Nevada. It offers the largest standard accommodations on the Las Vegas Strip with 67 m² (720 square feet) suites. The Lavo nightlife at The Palazzo is the new hot spot frequented by celebrities.
The Grand Canal Shoppes is the 46,000 m² (500,000 square ft) luxury shopping mall inside The Venetian and The Palazzo. The mall has indoor canals, where gondolas take people around the mall.
Listening to an Italian serenade while floating in a gondola through the Venetian's Grand Canal Shoppes is a relaxing and entertaining experience. Following the popular Italian tradition, couples can kiss under each bridge for good luck.
Guests have the choice to ride through the indoor canal or around the 2 900 m² (31,235 square ft) outdoor lagoon. The outdoor ride is known for its fabulous views of the Strip and The Venetian. The 15-minute indoor ride is a bit longer. It goes under bridges and along the canal that weaves its way past stores and shops that look like if you were on a real Venetian canal. Rides are known to sellout almost daily. Before the rides open in the morning, the gondola singers perform a song together to get the day started off right.
Gondolas here are motorized so that the gondolier can focus on steering the boat, and entertaining their guests. The fleet of Gondolas includes a decorated white and gold boat designed especially for weddings.
Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada (USA).
Paris Las Vegas is a hotel and casino centrally located on the Las Vegas Strip. It is owned by Caesars Entertainment Corp. It offers 2,915 rooms, 7,900 m² (85,000 square ft) of gaming areas, many restaurants bars and nightclubs, a 1,200-seat theatre known as Le Théâtre des Arts, an 8,093 m² (two-acre) rooftop pool, a spa center, and two shopping promenades. The Paris Las Vegas is linked via a promenade to its sister property, Bally's Las Vegas, through which it is accessible by the monorail.
The theme of the resort is the city of Paris. Paris Las Vegas captures all the intricate details of the real Paris. It includes half-scale replicas of the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. Other landmarks such as the Louvre, the Paris Opera House and the Hotel de Ville of Paris have been also duplicated at Paris Las Vegas.
The replica of the Eiffel Tower is 165 m (541-ft) tall. You may ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower and enjoy 360-degree panoramic views of the city. On the 11th floor, the world-class Eiffel Tower Restaurant offers the fine French cuisine of Chef J. Joho with an extensive wine list, a hint of romance and another incredible view. The Eiffel Tower experience is open all day but it is far more romantic at night.
Fountains of Bellagio on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada (USA).
Several attractions in Las Vegas won't cost you a penny. Popular free attractions visible from the Strip include the water Fountains at Bellagio, the Sirens of TI, the Volcano at The Mirage, and the Fall of Atlantis at Caesars Palace.
The Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas are probably the Las Vegas Strip's most famous free attraction. They deliver spectacular performances. Using a dramatic combination of music, water and light, the performances take place in a 3.2 ha (8-acre) manmade lake located in front of the Bellagio hotel. The lake is illuminated at night by about 5,000 lights. The fountains are visible from numerous points on the Strip.
The style changes every 30 minutes (every 15 minutes after 7 p.m.). There are more than 30 different songs that play on rotation including Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On," Frank Sinatra's "Fly Me to the Moon," Elvis Presley's "Viva Las Vegas" and Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman's "Con Te Partiro" among others.
The water in the Bellagio lake could fill 2,000 swimming pools. The fountain shooters can shoot higher than a 24-story building. Two vacuums on a barge suck up coins tossed in the lake for luck. They're donated to Habitat for Humanity, an international, non-governmental organization.
Since its opening in 1989, the Volcano at The Mirage has been one of most popular free attractions on the Strip. The show that combines fire with music and choreography was redesigned in 1996 and 2008. Choreographed fire effects send massive fireballs more than twelve feet into the air with eruptions of fiery lava that flows down the mountain in a series of lively flames surrounding the lagoon. The Volcano plays nightly every hour on the hour from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. just outside The Mirage along the Las Vegas Strip.
The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace has marvelous fountains: inside The Forum Shops, just near the Cheesecake Factory, a fountain show uses animatronic statues while incorporating an awesome fire and water show. It is based on the Fall of Atlantis, the legend of the lost city from Greek Mythology. This free show occurs every hour. The saltwater aquarium behind the Fall of Atlantis features more than 300 fishes.
