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's 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.

Outstanding
PostedFebruary 3, 2014
I have seen 8 different Circe shows over the years. Le Reve is definitely one of their best! If you can only see one, I recommend Mystere (especially if you are bringing kids), but if you can see two, then definitely include Le Reve.

Truth is, there’s a Cirque du Soleil production for just about every personality, mood and interest out there. And “KA,” is for the action-loving, adventure-seeking show goers that can appreciate an age-old story of good versus evil. The storyline illustrates the journey of a brother and sister twin duo that becomes separated during a siege of their Far Eastern palace by evil warriors. Yep, this is a royal battle, y’all and they’ve pulled out all the stops.The entire theater is designed to fit the theme so no matter where your gaze takes you, you’ll be looking at the set. But you’re really gonna love this: the stage is made up of two massive moving platforms that not only float, but turn completely vertical. Did you hear that? That was the sound of our minds being blown. And just wait until you see the suspended fight scenes.Also, while it’s insanely cool, not all the stunts are done in the air. The Wheel of Death, for example (ohmagah can you believe they have a Wheel of Death?), is positioned firmly on the ground while the daredevil performer flings himself into dangerous heights, where one misstep could lead to his demise. A story of intense battle, and a question of triumph or defeat to the very end, KA is entertainment on an entirely new level. Forreal.

Good, but there are better options
PostedFebruary 3, 2014
I have now seen Ka, Le Reve, Mystere, O, Zumanity, as well as the Circ performances at Disney World, Sea World and in Vancouver.
The stage and theater were stunning. The show itself was more play than circus, and the play was only mediocre. If you are looking for a story with your circus, Le Reve is a much better option. In fact, of all the Circ shows I have seen, Ka would be second to last in my list (the Vancouver show being the worst).
My kids did enjoy Ka, so I gave it 3 stars.

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.

Not worth it
PostedFebruary 3, 2014
David Copperfield is coasting on his name. He was dressed like a slob, his "magic" was predictable and easily deciphered (by my 11 year old), and one of his tricks didn't even work.
Penn and Teller provide a much better show. For that matter, the afternoon show that only costs the price of a single drink put on by Mac King at Harrahs was a better show.
If you are easily amused, technically challenged, and very gullible, you will enjoy this show. It would also help if you don't mind paying top dollar for mediocrity.
If, on the other hand, you expect quality entertainment for your $100, then David Copperfield isn't for you.

Las Vegas may be a playground for adults but there is one place that's all about the kids.Head toward the north end of the Strip and you really can't miss the giant neon clown sign and massive pink and white circus tent-shaped building that is Circus Circus Hotel, Casino & Theme Park, a classic Las Vegas hotel since 1968.The hotel is so iconic you've seen it in movies like "Diamonds Are Forever" and "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery." It was also mentioned in Hunter S. Thompson's famous book, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas."  In fact, we think he described it perfectly: "The place is about four stories high, in the style of a circus tent, and all manner of strange county fair/Polish carnival madness is going on up in this space." That madness is exactly what makes Circus Circus Hotel, Casino & Theme Park such a great place for families. The accommodations are affordable and you'll find an absolutely endless supply of entertainment for people of all ages.True to its theme, the hotel boasts the world's largest permanent circus under a big top inside. Just follow the sounds of guests oohing and aahing and you'll find acts like aerialists, jugglers, acrobats and trapeze artists flying through the air with the greatest of ease. The best part? The performances are totally free.Sharpen your ring tossing skills and head to the midway, which offers more than 200 classic carnival games. Didn't win at the tables? You can at least win yourself a giant stuffed animal here. There's also an arcade with classic and current video games.Go back to your room and take a quick power nap because, even though it doesn't seem possible, the fun doesn't stop there. The biggest attraction at Circus Circus is The Adventuredome, America's largest indoor theme park. It doesn’t matter if it's the hottest summer day or a chilly winter afternoon, the dome is a comfortable 72 degrees and ready for action year-round.The five-acre park has a dizzying (literally) array of rides to choose from. The brave at heart can hop on the Canyon Blaster, a double-loop, double-corkscrew roller coaster. The younger set will enjoy Miner Mike, a runaway coal train, or the Thunderbirds, a squadron of not-so-high-flying 1920s-style airplanes. The Adventuredome's newest thrill is the El Loco roller coaster. If you're loco enough to ride it, you'll experience a 90-foot ascent, negative G drops, gravity-defying turns and over-the-edge twists.Parents might need a bit of adult time after all that sensory overload and luckily Circus Circus has plenty for the 21 and older crowd too. The resort has a full casino, a race and sports book and there's the adjacent Slots A Fun casino where you can play the slots, shoot some darts or watch sports on big screen TVs.Adults will also appreciate the hotel's gourmet dining room, THE Steak House, which has earned acclaim in Las Vegas for more than 30 years for its perfectly prepared prime cuts of meat and old school service. If you're still standing at the end of a fun-filled day with the kids at Circus Circus, you deserve a shot, so head to rock 'n' roll legend Vince Neil's Tatuado Eat-Drink-Party! and Party Bus Bar, which features flair bartenders and party girls offering up creative cocktails.

Excellent Value
PostedFebruary 2, 2014
Circus Circus proved to be excellent value. If you are like me and would rather spend your money on shows and entertainment then this is an excellent choice for a hotel on the strip. The beds were very comfortable and the amenities were adequate.
If opulence is what you seek, then it is just down the street, and it all can be accessed after you wake up from a good nights sleep.
If, on the other hand, you like spending ten time the price for a similar bed, but nicer linen, then perhaps Circus Circus isn't for you.

Will David Copperfield be performing in march 2014

Don't go! He is not worth it.
Pick Penn and Teller or Mac King (Harrahs in the afternoon).
My 11 year old was not impressed with David Copperfield.
