Are there washrooms on the bus?

I don't think the vehicle has a washroom, but once you are out at Hoover Dam there will be plenty of facilities to use.

gondola for 4

Going for a wedding and our anniversary.... How much for a private party of 4? Is that doable?
$18.95 per person. Children 2 years old and younger are free. A private, two-passenger gondola ride is available for $75.80. I'm sure they can accommodate a party of four. You can check with them at (702) 607-3982.

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.

 Criss Angel Believe from Cirque du Soleil
Criss Angel Believe from Cirque du Soleil
What would a magician do when his act gets mixed reviews for having too much going on and too much filler?He'd make those parts disappear, of course.And in true magical fashion, he makes them re-appear as something much better.The recently revamped Criss Angel Believe from Cirque du Soleil brings out more of what Angel's fans have been clamoring for in the first place: magic.This production has seen some significant changes in response to feedback from guests and critics alike, and the end result is a highly focused and entertaining show.Criss Angel Believe takes his illusions and stage presence, combined with the flair and artistry Cirque is best known for -- with just enough of each to make fans of both happy.Although the magic acts in Criss Angel Believe form a loosely-connected narrative, this story is secondary to wowing the audience with illusions. From levitation to "how'd-he-do-it?" disappearances, Angel brings out all the acts he has made famous on "Mindfreak" and then some, along with some more traditional illusions with an added "Mindfreak" twist to them.From the theater itself to the set pieces used during Angel's performance, the whole atmosphere is dark with gothic accents, reminiscent of old-fashioned circuses and carnivals with a morbid twist.Angel's back-and-forth interaction with the audience throughout the show keeps things interesting, but his bumbling assistants -- four "ushers" named Maestro, Luigi, Slim and Lars --  ensure that the whole experience, from start to finish, inspires both awe and laughter. Expect lots of dark humor, as Angel has snappy commentary to accompany many of his illusions."You're applauding this woman being cut in half. Really, that's horrible. Just horrible," he says with a sarcastic grin, after a scaled-up take on the classic "saw a woman in half" trick. We've never thought about it like that, but Angel generally has an entirely different way of thinking about these illusions than your average magician does.If you've ever wanted to be a part of a larger-than-life, stage version of Angel's "Mindfreak" program -- this is the show to see.-- Staff report

If you loved the 1997 movie "Titanic," then the Titanic exhibit at the Luxor will blow you away. Featuring more than 300 artifacts, as well as breathtaking replicas from the famous ship, the Titanic exhibit truly brings history to life. The exhibit features 20 never-before-seen artifacts including gaming chips, passenger papers and even decorative sections from Titanic's famous Grand Staircase. In addition, there are many personal pieces within the exhibit. One of the most heartfelt elements of the exhibit is the personal stories of the passengers. During the tour, the exhibit's staff shares personal tales from the passengers. Some stories have a tragic, yet romantic ending. For instance, some wives chose to stay behind with their husbands instead of climbing onto the lifeboats. "I think seeing all the personal effects from all the people that perished was very touching," said Noelle Dunn, a visitor from Jacksonville, Fla. At the beginning of the exhibit, patrons receive a boarding pass of an actual passenger on Titanic. On the back of each boarding pass is the age and the itinerary of that person. At the end of the tour, patrons find out if he or she survived the Titanic by finding the name on the wall memorial. The exhibit also includes passenger quotes. One of the most poignant sayings came from Jack Thayer, a first-class passenger: "There was no moon and I never seen the stars shine brighter," he said. "It was the kind of night that made one feel glad to be alive." Amazing artifacts Titanic Fast Facts705 passengers survived, but 1,523 were lost.Even if all 20 lifeboats had been filled to capacity, there was only room in them for 1,178 people.The Titanic was the largest moving object of its time. It cost $7.5 million to build Titanic and carried a $5 million insurance policy. It would have cost about $400 million to build the ship today.More than 10,000 men worked on the Titanic for nearly three years to construct the hull and internal structure. More than 100,000 people gathered to watch the Titanic sail off to New York. For a third-class passenger, a ticket was $40 ($770 today). For a first-class passenger, tickets were $4,500 a piece ($90,000 today).It took about 60 pounds of coal for the ship to move 60 feet. In addition to the passengers' stories, other fascinating details include their belongings. From a diamond and sapphire ring to a platinum pendant with diamonds, some of the most beautiful pieces recovered from the Titanic are sparkling jewelry. The jewels were conserved -- not restored -- and many of the dazzling gems managed to keep their original luster. Aside from jewelry, plenty of the Titanic passengers brought their own china and silverware. Each cup, plate, pitcher and bowl has its own interesting, distinct look.One of the exhibit's unique pieces discovered is the au gratin plates set, stacked neatly in rows. The au gratin dishes were found lined up inside of a wooden crate that had deteriorated over time -- an image that is recreated in the exhibition. Other artifacts include ship tools, postcards, currency, a pipe, a spittoon and playing cards. The Big Piece While the tiny pieces leave behind a lasting impression, The Big Piece -- a huge piece of the ship's hull -- definitely stands out. This piece is currently the largest Titanic artifact ever retrieved. The Big Piece weighs an astounding 15 tons and measures more than 26 feet long. Bringing it inside was a 48-hour process, involving cranes and a special team of people. It's considered the crown jewel of the collection.Riveting replicas In addition to the artifacts, the exhibit also features amazing replicas from the Titanic. One of these includes the staircase replica. Most remember the staircase scene in "Titanic" with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. Seeing the staircase in person brings the Titanic to life. The staircase is where first-class passengers met, mingled and admired each other's outfits. The intricately-detailed staircase replica includes iron, bronze and even the stained glass dome. Visitors have the option of having their picture taken and purchasing it at the end of the tour. Other noteworthy replicas include the promenade deck (which features the sounds of waves crashing and a starry sky) as well as an iceberg, which guests are more than welcome to touch. Since the iceberg was specifically created for the exhibit, it contains its own cooling system to prevent it from melting. Make sure to stop and take a look at the third-class and the finely decorated first-class sleeping quarters. Adorned with burgundy colors, elegant décor and mahogany accents, the first-class suite was considered more luxurious than any hotel room on land in its time. Great for the entire family From young to old, visitors of all ages will enjoy this exhibit. There is also gift shop for those who want to take a piece of Titanic home with them. Visitors can purchase everything from T-shirts, stuffed animals, captain hats for kids, cups, key chains and much more. Titanic's overall experience gives guests a better perspective and appreciation of what happened on that fateful night. It allows visitors to remember the story of Titanic, especially the heroism of the crew and the passengers that were lost that night.
 

photos

Can you take photos inside the exhibit and do you offer locals a discount?
No, photos are not allowed. Guests are even asked to turn off phones upon entry. And there is a locals admission price. Locals with a valid ID pay only $29.

Would 3 yr olds be permitted on this ride?

How much is it for this age?
Yes, they are allowed. But guests ages 12 and under must be supervised by an adult and remain under the control of an adult at all times while on or in the vicinity of the High Roller.

 Shania Twain
Shania Twain
Shania Twain's show at Caesars Palace is a welcome return for fans of the woman who is one of the biggest stars in country pop music.Twain's 1997 album "Come On Over" skyrocketed the singer to worldwide fame. The album became the best-selling album of all time by a female musician and the best-selling country music album of all time. A five-time Grammy Award-winner, Twain has sold more than 75 million albums worldwide, including 50 million albums in the United States. She's the top-selling female country artist of all time and has multiplatinum album sales in 32 countries.Her production at the Colosseum is called Shania: Still the One and she definitely proves she still has that special something that first made her famous.After being away from performing so long it's only fitting that Twain make a big, splashy entrance at the beginning of her show and she succeeds by flying in above the stage on a motorcycle in a sparkling cat suit before launching into "I'm Gonna Getcha Good," the first of many of the hit songs she performs throughout the night.Fans will be delighted to hear all of Twain's familiar tunes during the course of the show like "Don't be Stupid," "You Win My Love," "Whose Bed Have your Boots Been Under?" and "Up!"The stage transforms several times during the show and the next segment features a very country feel with a saloon set and the performers dressed in Old West-style costumes. Performers include a live band with several fiddle players, four energetic male dancers and three backup singers, including Twain's sister Carrie Ann Brown and RyanDan, a Canadian musical, songwriting and producing duo, consisting of identical twins Ryan and Dan Kowarsky.The mood changes to a more rock/pop style and so does Twain's costume -- to a leopard-print outfit similar to the one she wore in the video for "That Don't Impress Me Much." She sings that song, as well as other favorites like "Honey I'm Home" and "If You're not In it for Love (I'm Outta Here!)"Next, the stage is transformed into a campfire setting with a faux fire and a woodsy background on the Colosseum's massive screens. Twain brings a few lucky people up on stage from the audience to sit around the fire and sing acoustic songs. She talks about her favorite memories of singing as a child and with her family before performing a bit of music a capella with her backup singers.After a couple of tunes sung around the campfire, Twain sings a song that might be less familiar to people, but is the newest one she has recorded, "Today is Your Day."One of the biggest highlights of the show comes when she launches into her two huge hit ballads. She wears a flowing white gown and arrives on stage on the back of a beautiful white horse. The screens project birch trees and falling snow in the background as she sings "You're Still the One." The horse is led offstage and billowing white curtains descend as Twain sings "From This Moment On."The show ends with a bang with one of Twain's biggest hits, "Man, I Feel Like a Woman." Confetti is blasted out over the audience and S-H-A-N-I-A is spelled out in massive lights. Throughout the show Twain talks to the audience and clearly enjoys being back on stage. "I realize what I've been missing, thanks to you," she says. Judging by the multiple standing ovations the crowd gives her it's clear they have missed her too.-- By Kristine McKenzie
 

December performance dates?

Will there be performances December 24th through the 28th?

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.
 

Ticket assurance

Is the show and ticket confirmed once I get the confirmation email? As I booked 29 Oct @9.30pm but not shown at MGM's ticket site, I want to ensure if it is confirmed.
Thank you.
Yes, your ticket is confirmed once you receive a confirmation e-mail. Be sure to bring your mail and your ID with you when you go to the show.

Nasally voice, curly cues (nope, it’s not Adam Sandler), it’s one of our faves Jerry Seinfeld. He’s hitting the Vegas Strip and it’s kind of a big deal.Kicking off to his stand-up career at New York’s Catch A Rising Star Comedy Club, Seinfeld has gone on to become one of the brightest stars of them all. Boy, New York sure knows how to make them. Most of you probably know him from the iconic ‘90s show “Seinfeld,” which everyone still loves to this day. From his humongous success, he went on to become a best-selling author, movie actor and still performing his core stand-up skits.Don’t miss one of the most famous funnymen in the world while he takes Sin City by storm.  
 

How long does the show go for and what time will we be out?

Hi there

My friends and i have a booking to see Jerry in September at 7.30pm. We want to book to see Cirque Du Soleil at the Bellagio at 10pm that same night (we are visiting from Australia so want to see as much as we can).
Are we likely to be done and dusted by 9.30pm?
You will have to hustle but you should be ok. Jerry's show should end around 9.
