For those seeking a saucy, sumptuous and all around awe-inspiring evening of entertainment, look no further than Le Rêve at Wynn Las Vegas. You’ll never know how sexy it can be to kick water in someone’s face until you see this show (kinda makes us want to slosh through every puddle we see).An escape from reality, Le Rêve, French for “The Dream,” takes you through passion and heartbreak in a storyline that is about as steamy as it gets…and we’re not talking about the red-hot fire and water action either.The show has so many incredible elements, starting with the theater itself. It’s not small, but it’s very intimate, a lot like the shape of a funnel – so there’s really no bad seat in the house. Delicate fabric flowers flutter down from the ceiling, hiding the most exquisite aerial acrobats that plunge deep into the 27-foot-deep circular pool below. It’s equipped with a mobile platform, which rises and falls for the different scenes.The water elements perfectly accentuate the performers’ chiseled figures, making the already slinky costumes cling in all the right places, if you know what we mean. The fire and fog create intensity and mystery to an already unbelievable submerging set. There’s dancing, acrobatics, synchronized swimmers, divers and so much more.  This is one show you can’t miss, just trust us on this one…you’ll forget about all those meetings and to-do lists when you melt into the colorful aquatic wonderland that is Le Rêve.

Very nice show. Always entertaining and with perfection. Sat in the splash zone. If you are in the first 2 rows ... you will get splashed. If you are in the 3rd and 4th rows ... you may or may not get the effects of being splashed. Nothing horrible ... if you like chlorine water all over your face. However, my nephew thought this was a blast and we laugh about it all the time. Great production.

The High Roller in Las Vegas isn't your average Ferris wheel. There's nothing average about it. And it's not really a Ferris wheel; it's an observation wheel -- the biggest in the world at a staggering 550-feet-tall.Yes, you read that right: 550 feet. That's nine feet taller than the Singapore Flyer and 107 feet taller than the London Eye. It currently holds the Guinness World Record for largest observation wheel.Located at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, the High Roller is the focal point of the $550 million open-air shopping, dining and entertainment district, The LINQ Promenade. It's a sight that can't be missed. Literally, you can't miss it.The High Roller is comprised of 28 enclosed and air-conditioned transparent pods holding 40 passengers each. The pods are roomy with a couple benches and the ride is smooth, not typically bothering those with a minor fear of heights.From boarding to exit, the entire experience is about 30 minutes long (be sure to hit the bathroom before you board). Along the way, you enjoy in-cabin video and music shows while witnessing a truly unparalleled 360-degree view of Las Vegas both day and night. With panoramic views of the Strip, the valley and the mountains, there’s something to see from every angle. But the southwest corner (your immediate right when you enter the pod) offers the best Strip views at the highest point. If you happen to nab this sweet spot, be courteous to other riders. There may be up to 39 other people riding with you in your pod. They want photos too.The High Roller is accessible from The LINQ via multiple entrances, including a back porte cochère off of LINQ Lane (formerly Audrie Lane). The Las Vegas Monorail, meanwhile, cruises right in front of the High Roller with convenient stops at both the Flamingo and The Quad.To board the High Roller, guests pass through a building, which includes interactive elements, bathrooms and a bar and lounge. The building also has a hospitality area with outdoor patios, which can be reserved for catered private parties of up to 500 people.Just as the High Roller has transformed the Las Vegas skyline, a ride inside it may transform you. After a spin on this wheel, your view of Vegas will likely never be the same.

Wonderful Time
PostedAugust 13, 2014
At first we were not sure how we would feel about the High Roller. It was a very nice ride. Smooth, safe, and interesting. Once you get to 550 feet in the air (on the very top), you begin to realize the impact this ride has. I took my nephew on this ride and we were the only ones in the capsule. Air conditioned. I will do this ride again with my husband, who is afraid of heights, in the evening.

The power of the mind takes center stage as international mentalist Frederic Da Silva returns for his second stint in Las Vegas, Paranormal at Bally's Las Vegas.The magic, mind-reading, hypnosis and a mystery of this show isn't just in your head. Da Silva has been honored with numerous awards for his powerful abilities. He's the 2011 winner of the FISM European Championship of Magic. In 2010, he was awarded the Nostradamus d' Or as best mentalist in Europe and was also a prize winner in the FFAP French Championship of Magic. Many fans may also know him as a contestant on "France's Got Talent."Da Silva's afternoon show will leave you guessing as to what is reality and what is illusion. He will get inside your head and make predictions that seem unbelievable. He may even know the name of the person you've been obsessing about or predict what you have in your pocket. Prepare to have your mind blown ... and in some cases, read.

Terry Fator may just be the greatest illusionist on the Las Vegas Strip, but you'll never see him perform any magic tricks. He amazes audiences by singing like famous entertainers from Elvis to Cher without moving his lips, and that's not all. Along with being a singer and a celebrity impressionist, Fator is a puppeteer. His face may not move much during his show, but his hands are always in action, bringing to life his cast of lovable puppet co-stars.The puppets each have their own comical personalities and music style, which makes Fator's show feel like both a concert and a stand-up comedy routine. There's Winston, the impersonating turtle; Walter T. Airdale; Maynard Thompkins, the World's Greatest Elvis Impersonator; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor; Julius, the soul singer; Monty Carlo, the lounge singer; Hyphen, the delusional British rocker; Vikki, the cougar; Barry Fabulous, a flamboyant hip-hop diva; and Wrex, the safety expert. When the puppets aren't singing, they're sharing their comedic wit with Fator and the audience.All the while, if you really pay attention, you get the chance to hear something remarkable. Fator's vocal range extends from Etta James' "At Last," to Garth Brooks' "Friends In Low Places." The appreciation for his talent runs even deeper when he performs both parts of two duets. He does Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe," and "What A Wonderful World," as Kermit the Frog (with Winston) and Louis Armstrong.Combine that range of musical samplings and add in that Fator never opens his mouth more than half an inch during the songs unless he's taking a breath or, on the rare occasion, singing a song as himself.To call Terry Fator a master of puppets would be an under appreciation for his show and talents. But to call him the best singer on the Strip, who doesn't open his mouth more than half an inch, while using puppets and providing endless comedy might be more accurate. Unfortunately, that's really hard to fit on a billboard.A multitalented performer, Fator got his big break when he won NBC's "America's Got Talent" in 2007. Fator won $1 million and a gig to perform on the Strip. He started out as a headliner at the Las Vegas Hilton, which is now LVH - Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, and later moved to The Mirage. Since 2008 hundreds of thousands of tourists have seen Fator's show. Aside from Vegas, Fator has been featured on "The Today Show," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Late Show with David Letterman."-- Staff Report

Second Time Around
PostedMay 29, 2013
This is the 2nd time my husband and I have seen Terry Fator. His shows evolve over time and personally, add a special touch of character with each performance. The theatre in the Mirage is very nice. We had seats close to the front and was able to view the video screens with "crisp" clarity. My only suggestion, thou' a tall order to fill, would be to change the mask on the Dolly Parton character. I know its difficult to create a mask - but the image gave me nightmares. My sister and brother-in-law were part of this act in Minnesota. Different costume, etc. They enjoyed the fun. Otherwise, we loved the show.

I saw Terry Fator in Sept 2012. I'm coming to Vegas 2/2013, does Terry perform a different show from the 2012 show?

We have seen his show 2x. The shows were different (but similar in some ways) ... when he is on the road versus in the theatre. Its worth the money to see him again in the theatre.

can you bring small 35mm cameras into vegas shows ie C,Dion

You can bring a camera - but - in some cases, they are not allowed during the performance due to copyright issues.
