It’s David freakin’ Copperfield. Need we say more? We really don’t but since we love talking about this world-famous magician who just so happens to be our neighbor, we’ll go on and brag about him and his show anyway. The perfect combo of nostalgia, magic and showmanship, master illusionist David Copperfield continues to wow us time and again. Trust us, we’ve been about 17 times and still can’t figure out how he teleports. Seriously, how does he do that?!Anyway, moving on. This show is just mystifying enough to make you believe in the supernatural, while also making you feel like a crazy person for considering whether or not someone could actually separate their torso from their legs and live to tell the tale. We just aren’t sure how he pulls off his magic but we are more than O.K. with it.In fact, we hope the mystery continues to endure the test of time so that we can keep attending the show and increasing our chances of being picked for the audience participation. Let’s be real here. We are talking about the man who made Statue of Liberty disappear and who walked through the Great Wall of China. Clearly, anything is possible. Don’t believe us? See Copperfield perform for yourself and let us know just how many of his illusions and tricks you manage to figure out. And if you get pulled onstage, we’ll be insanely jealous.

Mind Blowing
PostedJuly 14, 2013
David Copperfield is a great act. Mind was blown a few times. DO NOT ARRIVE LATE OR LEAVE EARLY. He will stop the show and call you out. A lot of interaction with the audience. A must see!

Gerry McCambridge has one of the most unique acts on the Strip as well as one of the most unique job titles: Mentalist. As a "mentalist," McCambridge reads the minds of random audience members and predicts the outcome of random situations during the performance. The entire show is also laced with comedy and plenty of audience interaction, making each performance a different experience.For the past 20 years, celebrities have flown McCambridge, also known as the "Mentalist to the Stars," around the world to entertain at Hollywood parties. He has performed for such names as Donald Trump, Courteney Cox, Howard Stern, Lisa Kudrow, Tim Burton, Dennis Miller, David Spade, Carrie Fisher and many more.In 2004 McCambridge had his first one-hour network prime-time television special on NBC. Millions more around the world have seen the special in countries such as Canada, Africa, Australia, Korea, the Middle East, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.In the summer of 2004, McCambridge also took his one-man mind reading show to New York City. His off-Broadway show was a critically-praised hit.

Absolutely Mind Blowing
PostedJuly 14, 2013
What a great show. Absolutely mind blowing. I wouldn't recommend to families although there were some kids there (mild use of adult language). Gerry is absolutely mind blowing. My jaw hit the floor a few times and I was left scratching my head. Great experience!!

If you’re easily offended, an absolute bore, or just don’t like having fun, “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace is not the show for you. There’s a good chance the host, The Gazillionaire and his sidekick Joy Jenkins, are probably gonna publicly shame you if you leave early, but don’t worry; there’s no way you’ll get out of your seat once the show starts. It’s completely intoxicating.The ideal blend of variety, wild acrobatics, and lots of sexy people doing ultra sexy things, “Absinthe” is one show you’ll never forget. Just like the glowing green spirit that is the show’s namesake, consuming this experience will make you feel as though you were struck by something wonderful you can’t quite put your finger on.That’s called incredible entertainment, folks. And you don’t have to be under the influence to enjoy yourself. But word to the wise, you may not want to bring your dear Aunt Edna because this show is full of raunchy jokes, lingerie-clad acrobats, and you may even be pulled on stage for a lap dance. We’re not saying this wouldn’t make for excellent dinner conversation but it’s not what you want to be reminiscing upon when slicing into grandma’s meatloaf.  So go ahead and order a double (triple?) of whatever gets your feel-good flowing, and let this hilariously zany and outlandishly fun production whisk you away from reality.

BEST SHOW IN VEGAS!!!!!
PostedJuly 14, 2013
So glad we ended up booking this show. BEST IN VEGAS. Come with an open mind and don't buy premium seats if you can't take a ribbing or be a part of some jokes. Absolutely amazing show. I will go again every time I'm in town. If you can only book one show, this is it! What a great time!

It’s definitely getting hot in here and the performers are definitely taking off all their clothes. Exploring the very sexy and very un-family-friendly side of Cirque du Soleil, Zumanity whips - er - whisks audience members up for a deliciously wild ride to discover their sensual side. Oh la, la! Have we roused your, um, attention? If we haven’t, the two voluptuous Botero Sisters passing out plump strawberries at the beginning of the show will.Unlike other Cirque du Soleil productions, Zumanity has no storyline. Instead, this highly eroticized, cabaret-style spectacle offers a bunch of unique characters whose performances are each themed by different elements of sexuality. Oh, and there is no traditional Cirque gibberish either unless you count some moans and groans as such.You’ll learn very practical life lessons, like how to stash booze in your boobs and getting comfortable with hilariously taboo sex topics. Between the leather, chains, silks and well, some things we just can’t share, you can bet a little laughter is welcomed. With nearly nude aerial artists, contortionists, super limber dancers and the sassiest drag queen host of them all, forget being conservative. Let your hair down, loosen one extra button, and get your naughty on for some sexy entertainment that just may be a precursor for the remainder of your evening.

Good but not Spectacular
PostedJuly 14, 2013
Please come to the show with an open mind. Beware of nudity, great comedy, and broadway show type show. We had a good time, but definitely not one of our favorites. Some acts were breathtaking and others wouldn't end fast enough. Some of the segways into different acts were boring. I would reccommend to couples and only if you're needing to find a show to fill for another night

Watch the swinging pocket watch. You are getting sleepy, very sleepy. Sure that might be what a hypnotist connotes, but Anthony Cools- The Uncensored Hypnotist is anything but a typical hypnotist show. There is definitely hypnotism, but the unthinkable and hilarious acts that he persuades people to do on stage result in a night of "good, clean, dirty fun.""You will be a star tonight," warns the screen hanging on both sides of the stage, letting everyone in attendance know that the real performers in this show are the people who are brave enough to be hypnotized.Before the show starts, Natalie, the hostess and DJ for the night, appears to go over some ground rules. This show is "loud, raw, uncensored and extremely adult in nature," she explains, before the lights dim, the music gets louder and Cools appears on stage."Where the party people sitting?" exclaims Cools. His explosive energy and uninhibited personality let everyone know they are in for a crazy evening of fun. After greeting the audience, Cools does a "test of susceptibility," which involves some playful and funny interaction with the crowd. Although the end result is a lot of laughs, the test is actually done to determine if you are a good candidate for hypnotism.Cools also explains three other restrictions for good candidates. You cannot be really drunk, high or in opposition to wanting to be hypnotized. So you can basically nix the idea of using liquid courage as an instigator to get yourself on stage. However, he encourages those who are not going to be hypnotized to indulge in a night of intoxicating fun."Raise your glasses and get ready to party!" shouts Cools. Then he asks everyone who wants to be a part of the show to come up on stage. During this time everyone has an opportunity to volunteer by walking up to one of the empty chairs on stage. Once all of the seats are taken, the real show begins."I have no magical mystical powers," explains Cools to his eclectic group of volunteers. "You people have to do this to yourself." He assures everyone that although they will be in a state of hypnosis, they will still be aware of everything that is going on around them.After the volunteers have all been briefed, Cools initiates an "induction" period where he asks everyone in the theater to remain 100 percent silent in order for his volunteers to reach a complete state of hypnosis. During this time he does several different relaxation techniques until all of his volunteers are sitting with their heads slumped over as if they are sleeping. Cool gently taps those who do not appear to be in a hypnotic state and has them to return to their seats in the audience.When he is satisfied that all the remaining volunteers are hypnotized he asks them to open their eyes and play instruments as though they were performing in a huge orchestra. In seconds they are awake and vivaciously playing non-existing instruments to a familiar classical symphony playing over the loudspeaker. Just imagine a really exaggerated version of air guitar but with an entire orchestra of instruments.Laughter erupts from the audience as one female volunteer appears to be almost out of breath from her passionate performance on a cello. The volunteers sitting next to her give equally amusing performances as they "play" a violin and piano.As the music fades, Cools asks everyone on stage to once again fall into a deep sleep."From this point on, the more noise you make the dirtier I get," says Cools to the audience, and everyone eagerly cheers for more.Then he walks up to individuals on stage and asks them to perform certain commands in accordance with a song that might play or a word he might say.He tells one guy that he will experience an extreme burning sensation in an unthinkable part of his body when he hears the Johnny Cash song "Ring of Fire." Then Cools assigns a female participant a talking body part that she will hear speak to her whenever he says her name.It is hilarious to see the people on stage act out these absurd scenarios with complete conviction as if everything happening were real. Along with the song and word commands, Cools also hypnotizes the people to think they are in ridiculous situations.One of the most outrageous of these scenes is when he asks everyone to again fall into a deep sleep, and then tells them that when they awake they are going to be naked and at an audition for a role that they really want in a pornographic film. He sets a chair in the middle of the stage and explains that it is going to be their partner for them to demonstrate their most "creative lovemaking techniques."Words cannot begin to describe the ludicrous and lewd acts that occur on stage when the volunteers awake. Uproarious laughter spills over from everyone in the audience as each person does their audition.Regardless of whether or not you chose to be a spectator or experience everything first hand on stage, this show is one mesmerizing night of hypnotic comedy that you will not want to miss."It was excellent. I had a great time," said Chris West from Austin, Texas. "I wouldn't spend my time anywhere else unless there was a female involved."

Beware if you volunteer
PostedJuly 14, 2013
I volunteered for this show and was the main attraction. I had a great time. Watched the DVD and laughed the entire time. My wife thought this was one of the highlights of the trip.

 Skywalk Direct
Skywalk Direct
Fly to the edge of the Grand Canyon's West Rim and walk across a pathway of transparent glass with breathtaking aerial views from the world-renowned Skywalk bridge. Upon pickup at your hotel, you will depart from the Henderson Executive Airport on an express airplane flight to Grand Canyon West. Sit back and take in an unforgettable bird's-eye view of Lake Mead, Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon.Once you arrive at the West Rim, you will board VIP ground transportation to the Grand Canyon Skywalk and enjoy front-of-the-line access to the bridge. At 4,000 feet above the Colorado River, the Skywalk is an engineering wonder, jutting out 70 feet from land in a "U" shape. As you stroll across the glass walkway there's nothing but four inches of glass between you and thin air.Commemorate your Grand Canyon adventure with a personal Skywalk photograph and souvenir bag.

Best Value of Time
PostedJuly 14, 2013
We opted for this tour over a bus tour because of the time. We didn't want to sit on the bus for hours and hours. We were called the day before and notified that the plane was in maintenance and asked if another day would work for us. Since we were booked for the remainder of our stay, we told them that this would simply not work. They upgraded us (free of charge) to a helicopter skywalk direct tour. We originally wanted this tour, but was afraid my wife would get sick on the helicopter. We are so glad we ended up getting this. The ride was smooth and she did not get sick. The vans that shuttle you from the airfield to the skywalk could have been nicer...better A/C especially with it in the summer! The tour guides were very knowledgable and very helpful. Great experience! Would recommend for families and/or couples

Seat location?

Where ecactly will my seats be located (what section?, which tier?), when I make an online reservation?
How many tiers will there be between our seats and the stage?
Are there different categories of seats at different rates and why is there only one category offered?
I recall there being 3 different tiers. We sat in the middle and were very happy. There is a lot of audience interaction and has cameras all over the place. Not a bad seat in the house
