    Looks like the Circa Resort will open earlier than scheduled and is already taking reservations.

    Previously slated for a December 2020 launch, the 1.25 million-square-foot integrated casino-resort will open with its first five floors of amenities and state-of-the-art parking hub – Garage Mahal – ahead of schedule. Upon completion, the resort will have approximately 1,000 employees.
    To achieve this timeline, Stevens reallocated construction resources from Circa's hotel tower to the first five floors. Slated for completion at the end of 2020, the tower will house Circa's 777 rooms and suites starting on the eighth floor; room reservations will go live June 24. Guests looking to visit prior to the tower opening can reserve rooms at the D Las Vegas or Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, also owned by Stevens, and enjoy access to Circa's pool in addition to its public amenities.
    I also found their media kit which has lots of photos of construction including these ones of the topping off which I hadn't seen before.


  2. There is a rumour that MGM Resorts may be looking into demolishing the Luxor.

    Our sources say company officials have discussed demolition of both Luxor and Excalibur for at least five years, but have been unable to proceed due to union contracts. It’s possible the COVID-19 shutdown has paved the way for what’s to come for Luxor.
    Roeben went on to say that Las Vegas has pivoted away from themed resorts in recent years. MGM has already transformed Monte Carlo into Park MGM, and largely done away with the “Wizard of Oz” theme at MGM Grand.

    Another Strip resort to fold on its original theme includes Treasure Island. Now known as TI, the casino no longer inundates guests with themes of the treasured adventure novel, and it canned its free nightly show “Sirens of TI” in 2013.

    Though MGM has invested in renovations to the Egyptian-themed casino, including a $300 million project in 2007 to remodel 80 percent of the resort’s public areas to focus more on adults, the building’s design makes it nearly impossible to fully move away from its original motif.

  4. Here is how the Pirates of Buccaneer Bay show used to look like:

  5. Treasure Island's Buccaneer Bay immediately became an iconic part of Las Vegas' entertainment landscape upon its debut in October 1993. In 2003, it was replaced by poorly-received 'The Sirens of T.I.'. Before Sirens was officially retired in 2013, Legacy Entertainment was engaged in a Blue Sky exercise to look at ways to reduce operating costs of the complimentary attraction. One proposed solution, seen here in this Concept Art, was to re-imagine the production as a battle between pirates and a haunted ghost ship. While both incarnations had been iconic for their sinking ship effect, this concept would have reversed this iconic moment, with the shipwreck rising out of the tides before being populated by ghost pirates by means of projection mapping and hologram-style effects.

  6. While industry insiders are aware of Legacy Entertainment's long relationship with entertainment giant Cirque du Soleil, lesser known is their collaboration with another French-Canadian live entertainment producer, Cavalia. Like Cirque, Cavalia turned to Legacy to help explore the location based entertainment sector, focusing on projects in Las Vegas and the Middle East. For Las Vegas, the teams explored the option of transforming existing properties, or portions of existing properties, into Cavalia-themed integrated resorts. Each resort design included a permanent venue for an expanded version of Cavalia's world-renowned horse show.

  7. Legacy Entertainment's 2007 re-design of Las Vegas' Tropicana for then-owner Columbia Sussex would have featured a highly-immersive retail promenade. Running through it was the 'Journey to Paradise' boat ride, which would have meandered through the retail zone before dropping into the attractions show scenes in the area currently occupied by the casino.
