World Resorts Changes Opening, Theme.

World Resorts released new images and a revised theme which pulls back on the intended “Forbidden City” Chinese imagery and assumes a more generic look and feel. It was also announced the result will open in early 2021 rather than the previously announced late 2020 range.

Several other major projects continue towards openings in the next two years however there also appears to be a cooling in the pace of new projects. Visitation to Las Vegas has been flat recently, many observers point to a decline in “night clubs” in recent years and ample affordable options for rooms near and on the Strip. Indeed, World Resorts choose to conserve a portion of the property for “future growth” rather than to build as intended.

Regardless the list of superlatives World Resorts will add promise to challenge all of the major property owners to up their game. This especially after Ceasars was bought earlier this year.

Some of the highlights include:

  • 110,000-square-foot casino
  • 5,000-seat theater
  • 70,000-square-feet of retail space
  • 350,000-square-feet of meeting and banquet space
  • 200,000-square-feet of restaurants and bars
  • 27,000-square-foot world-class spa
  • 14,000-square-foot race and sports book and live entertainment venue
  • 10,000-square-foot marquee
  • 50-foot diameter video globe


Sin City Freezes Over: Snow on the Strip!

The infernal regions did not freeze over but snow did accumulate on the Las Vegas strip! 

One Instagram users video looking out from the Cosmopolitan.

Believe it or not, this actually happens albeit rarely.  There have only been a dozen or so incidents of snow accumulating in Las Vegas proper during the past fifty years, the most being three inches in 2008.

Bally's Las Vegas Reviewed

Bally's Vegas

Recently Travelers Dominion ventured to Sin City for the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest.  Geekery of the reason aside, it presented the chance to stay at Bally's Las Vegas. 

Opening in 1973 to the sounds of Dean Martin as the MGM Grand the hotel was a landmark many credit with marking the start of the mega-resorts which now dominate the Las Vegas strip.  Overcoming the to the tragedy of the 1980 fire which killed 87 guests to reopen only eight months later with an additional tower, the property is now owned by Caesars and run as an integrated operation to its sister resort Paris Las Vegas.  Not the newest hotel on the strip, Bally's still has teeth as an attractive option for those looking for a prime location and great value.
