World-Renowned Shopping Experience Offers Activities for Every Member of the Family
LAS VEGAS (April 2010) – This summer, families flocking to Las Vegas will want to visit The Forum Shops at Caesars for myriad attractions. Just the sheer number of stores at The Forum Shops will keep kids eyes roving. Below is a list of additional attractions for families:
The Atlantis Aquarium: The 50,000-gallon saltwater aquarium stocked with colorful tropical fish located in the Roman Great Hall. Of heroic proportion, the hall is 160 feet in diameter and 85 feet high with more than 300 fish. Be sure to watch the aquarists feed them during dives scheduled at 1:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. daily. Families can take a complimentary below-the-scenes guided tour of the support facilities Monday through Friday at 3:15 p.m.
The Atlantis Show: In this same hall is one of two locations where guests can see awe-inspiring statues that come to life. The gods unleash their wrath in this animatronics extravaganza of epic proportions. Fire, water, smoke, and special effects tell the tale of Atlas, Gadrius and Alia, who struggle to rule the undersea city. Today, these statues are a ‘must see’ for Las Vegas visitors of all ages. The Atlantis Show has more than 400 moving parts in each of the characters. Shows are daily on the hour.
The Festival Fountain Show: Behold the morning sun and evening stars in a sky that changes from day to night and back again. Then see Bacchus, Venus, Apollo, and Plutus regale the visitors with a magnificent sound, light, and laser shows daily on the hour.
Houdini’s Magic Shop: The magician in all of us comes out at this unique magic shop. Kids can try out their new bag of tricks. Shhh in the back, there’s a special room where Houdini’s magicians train visitors on how to do their own tricks.
Kid’s Kastle: Need a baby or kid-sized signature Elvis white sequined jumpsuit, complete with a gold pair of sunglasses? Or how about Las Vegas emblazed t-shirt with cartoon characters? No problem. Kid’s Kastle carries children’s apparel, infants to size 14, as well as toys, gifts and other unusual and unique accessories.
Max Brenner, Chocolate by the Bald Man: The worldwide phenomenon with a menu primarily made from chocolate debuts this summer. Max Brenner’s location at The Forum Shops will hold the distinction of being the largest at 9,400 square feet. Also to catch the guests eyes: enormous white vats mixing chocolate that will flow into pipes running throughout the entire space. The decor will also feature huge bricks, candles, pralines, colorful toy tines and crates overflowing with cocoa beans. Currently, including Las Vegas, there will be 29 total locations, with two in the United States: New York City and Philadelphia.
Telling time becomes fun: At Swatch, kids learn how to tell time with Flik Flak, a watch brand that developed a method of teaching children to tell the time as young as three. Meanwhile, at Tourneau Time Dome, kids of all ages can turn this watch store into an adventure. At 13,400 square feet, it is the world’s largest watch store according to the Guinness World Book of Records. More than 100 different watch lines are represented in this two-level venue.
Field of Dreams: For the sports enthusiast, this is the perfect spot for a walk through sports history as well as recognizing hall of famers. Notorious for featuring guest appearances and autograph signings by Dan Marino to Smokin’ Joe Frazier to Pete Rose.
NIKETOWN: While we’re on the topic of sport stars, NIKETOWN features a sports collection of memorabilia as shoppers walk through two levels of retail. The store is divided by sport’s themes. Autographed collectibles are encased in display units throughout the store where celebrities from Michael Jordan to Andre Agassi are represented.
Three-level freestanding escalator: When the Phase III expansion debuted in 2004, a three-level, freestanding spiral escalator became the first of its kind in the United States and was designed exclusively for The Forum Shops by Mitsubishi.
Unique ambience: Perhaps it is the cobblestone streets and the Mediterranean sky. Or the numerous magical touches, such as the ornate fountains, spiral escalator and the intricate mosaic tile. The Forum Shops at Caesars has been paralleled to the likes of Via Condotti, Rodeo Drive and other prestigious shopping venues worldwide. With 160 specialty shops and restaurants The Forum Shops is unlike any other shopping experience in the world.
