Are there washrooms on the bus?

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. 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 up to 40 passengers each. The pods are roomy with a couple of 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'll 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 cochere 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.-- By Aleza Freeman

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

Ship of dreamsBy Caroline FonteinWhen the Titanic was completed in 1912 it was billed as the "ship of dreams," a majestic vessel with unprecedented features. It embodied the sense of dreamy optimism characteristic of that era. Today, that same sense of wonderment can be experienced at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition inside Luxor. The 25,000-square-foot exhibit features more than 300 artifacts retrieved through seven different expeditions that spanned from 1987 to 2004. Before entering the exhibit, each guest is given a boarding pass with the name of an actual passenger aboard the Titanic. Guests are also given hand-held audio devices that can be played as a supplement to the displays. This is a nice way to still obtain a lot of information if you don't feel like reading.Walking through the exhibition is like taking a trip back in time. It begins with an introduction on how the idea for the Titanic was contrived and the construction that went into building the seemingly "unsinkable ship." Facts about the era and the people who designed the ship hang on the wall, while actual pieces from the boat sit in glass encased exhibits. Each artifact is labeled with a description and the date that it was retrieved.A feature about Captain Edward J. Smith hanging on the wall explains how he planned to retire after the Titanic's maiden voyage. Knowing that he didn't make it leaves a haunting feeling. This is just one of the many passenger stories that you learn about during your visit. Artifacts that range from fine china to restored jewelry and even a mercury thermometer are also on display.After explaining the creation of the Titanic, the exhibition transports guests to the final day of departure when the ship set sail. The soundtrack playing in the background simulates seagulls, waves and the ocean breeze, making it seem like you are actually setting foot on the legendary vessel on Apr. 10, 1912.From there the exhibition's design transforms into what looks like the inside of the ship, starting with the third class and then moving onward to second and first class cabins, the most luxurious accommodations in the Titanic. There are pictures and information about the different classes of passengers that give you an idea of who may have been staying in each section of the ship.Along with the facts there are also quotes from various passengers on the wall describing what they thought of the ship, why they were traveling or what they were planning to do once they arrived at their final destination. All of these incredible details give you a new appreciation and understanding of the Titanic and the tragedy that ensued when it hit an iceberg on the night of Apr. 14, 1912.Upon entering the first class cabin you are greeted by a replica of the immaculately carved wooden staircase that most people recognize from the blockbuster movie "Titanic." Actual pieces from the original staircase are also on display. Once inside you get a real taste of the opulent furnishings and grand accommodations that first class passengers experienced. In that same area, recovered playing cards and American currency when it was still "paper money" are also on display.After leaving the first class cabin, the exhibition takes you through the events leading up to the moment when the ship collided with an iceberg. More quotes hanging on the walls explain what passengers and the crew were thinking and doing at that tragic moment. There is also a huge block of ice on display that simulates the freezing temperatures passengers experienced on that night.Only 705 passengers survived the wreck, leaving the remaining 1,523 passengers and crew, their belongings and the ship lost at sea two and a half miles below the ocean's surface for 73 years before being uncovered by the first expedition.
 

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.

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

You have probably seen him on television performing incredible illusions such as making the Statue of Liberty disappear, navigating the rapids of Niagara Falls and flying over the Grand Canyon. Master magician David Copperfield seems to have done it all. His show in Las Vegas is a unique opportunity for audiences to see these larger-than- life illusions performed live and up close in the Hollywood Theater at MGM Grand.Of course he can't exactly re-create all of them, but he demonstrates similar and equally amazing illusions using objects that are more suitable for a stage setting.Copperfield alludes to an illusion he did where he walked through the Great Wall of China and then explains that he is going to re-create that same illusion using a large metal sheet as the indestructible medium through which he will effortlessly pass.The metal sheet is placed on a raised platform, and Copperfield has two audience members come on stage to test it out by walking on it and hitting it with a rubber hammer.Next, he lies under the piece of metal, and four assistants hold a sheet over Copperfield and the platform. The assistants spin the platform around proving to the audience that there is no way out except by going through the metal. First you see just a finger poking through and then, within seconds, he miraculously appears on top of the metal sheet.This is just one of the mind-boggling magic tricks that he performs in the show. As the epitome of master magicians, Copperfield takes his illusions to another level of excitement and awe. Instead of doing the typical box trick where a woman is sliced in half, he locks himself in a box that begins to shrink in size. He smiles at the audience while moving his hands and feet as the box gets so small the entire length of his body has been reduced to mere inches.The box gradually gets bigger and Copperfield hops onto the stage saying, "that's how they made mini me," before moving on to his next illusion. He integrates his casual and comical personality into every act, resulting in laughter from the crowd.Audience interaction is a big part of the show as he incorporates a person picked at random for almost every illusion. You might even see him doing magic right in front of your seat when he performs illusions while standing in the audience. For one illusion he asks a woman to join him in the aisle on the side of the theater. He asks the woman to examine a piece of tissue paper before he rolls it into a ball and makes it levitate and dance along his arm with the tap of a finger.Unlike other magic shows in Las Vegas, Copperfield does not implement flashy showgirls, dancing or over the top production elements to supplement his illusions. His magic has enough of a wow factor on its own.His expertise as a magician dates back to when he was just 12 years old and started performing professionally. That same year he also became the youngest person ever to be admitted to the Society of American Magicians. From there, Copperfield went on to teach a course on magic at New York University when he was 16.During his first year in college, Copperfield starred in the Chicago musical, "The Magic Man," and as a result of the show's success he was selected to host ABC's "The Magic of ABC." From there he was offered his own series of specials with CBS titled "The Magic of David Copperfield." The series has been aired in over 40 countries.His illustrious career has made him a Guinness Book of World Record holder for having 21 Emmys, and he has a star on the Hollywood "Walk of Fame." Apart from his revue in Vegas, he continues to tour, performing sold out shows around the world.His enduring presence as a magician and integration into pop culture and even postage stamps proves that Copperfield's magic has no boundaries.He even demonstrates his ability to predict the future in an act where he gets people from the audience to provide him with different numbers that he later pulls from a box that has been hanging above the stage for the entire show.If just having the numbers on paper is not impressive enough, Copperfield also reveals a cassette tape with a recording of himself reciting the numbers that he plays for the audience. It is an astonishing feat that amazes everyone with the impossibility of it all.-- By Caroline Fontein

Jerry Seinfeld's unique brand of observational humor has made him a huge success as a stand-up comic and as a television star.Seinfeld jumped into comedy the evening following his college graduation with an amateur try-out at New York's Catch A Rising Star comedy club. He spent the early years of his career performing at a number of local clubs, sometimes for free. His work paid off with an appearance in a 1976 Rodney Dangerfield special on HBO. Then in 1981, Seinfeld's career as a stand-up comic took off after successful performances on the "Tonight Show."Many comedians dream of landing their own TV series, but few managed to do so with greater success than Seinfeld.In 1989, he co-created the NBC pilot "The Seinfeld Chronicles," with Larry David. The show turned into a pop culture mainstay as "Seinfeld." The self-proclaimed "show about nothing" premiered in 1989 and the last episode aired in 1998 after nine highly successful years. "TV Guide" ranked the comedy No. 1 on its 2002 list of the "50 Greatest Shows of All Time."Instead of pursuing a film career after the show ended, Seinfeld returned to stand-up comedy with a sold-out concert tour. While on tour he recorded the comedy special, "I'm Telling You for the Last Time." He also used his experience on tour to create the documentary, "Comedian." The film, which featured both Seinfeld and fellow comedian Orny Adams, documents the process of developing and performing new material at comedy clubs around the world.Over the years Seinfeld has continued to be featured in the media including special appearances on various TV shows. In 2006, he was a special guest on "Saturday Night Live" when Julia Louis-Dreyfus was hosting. The following year he guest-starred as himself in the "30 Rock" episode "SeinfeldVision." Seinfeld lent his voice to the DreamWorks animated film, "Bee Movie" for the lead character, Barry B. Benson. He also co-wrote and co-produced the 2008 movie.In 2009 he and the entire cast of "Seinfeld" appeared for a reunion on the seventh season finale for Larry David's HBO series "Curb Your Enthusiasm." That same year he also appeared as the first guest on "The Jay Leno Show," which premiered in 2009.In 2012, Seinfeld launched the web series, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," featuring such comedians as Ricky Gervais, Alec Baldwin, Sarah Silverman and David Letterman.In addition to his comedy career Seinfeld is also as best-selling author. His book, "Seinlanguage," released in 1993, became a No. 1 New York Times bestseller.While no stranger to the small screen, Seinfeld continues to tour as a stand-up comic. His hilarious observations on everything from relationships to common social situations continue to be a hit with fans across the country.
 

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.
