LAS VEGAS ADVENTURES

Smith Center for the Performing Arts

Smith Center

               The Smith Center for the Performing Arts is located in Downtown Las Vegas's 61-acre Symphony Park and is a five-acre performing arts center consisting of three theaters in two buildings; groundbreaking for the $470 million project was May 26, 2009. The Neo Art Deco design style was chosen by David M. Schwarz[3] to echo the design elements of the Hoover Dam, just 30 miles to the southeast. It also shares design features with the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas. The center features a 17-story carillon tower containing 47 bells and is the first performing arts center in the nation to be Gold LEED certified. It opened on March 10, 2012.
              The Smith Center features international music, and dance companies and is the home of the Las Vegas Philharmonic and Nevada Ballet Theatre. The Center is under the leadership of President and CEO Myron Martin.

titanic              The 25,000-square-foot exhibit features numerous items from the Titanic, including luggage, the ship's whistles, floor tiles from the first-class smoking room, a window frame from the Verandah Cafe and an unopened bottle of champagne with a 1900 vintage. In addition, the exhibit features a piece of Titanic’s hull, a full-scale re-creation of the Grand Staircase as well as a newly expanded outer Promenade Deck, complete with the frigid temperatures felt on that fateful April night.

The Stratosphere Las Vegas

StratusphereHighest Commercial Decelerator Descent – Guinness Book of World Records

            You might question your sanity before you do it.  But once you just do it — and take the dive off the 108th floor of the Stratosphere Tower at SkyJump — you’ll know why you pushed your fears over the edge.
             It’s a total rush.
             SkyJump is a heart-pounding, scream-inducing, open-air leap from 829 feet above the neon Strip. You’ll zoom toward the landing pad at speeds topping 40mph, while the crowds below gasp and applaud your bravado.
Daytime, Nighttime and Sunset SkyJumps available.
              Experience them all!

VooDoo Zipline - Rio Las Vegas

rio-zipline             View from the VooDoo Zipline
             Feel the adrenaline rush of soaring over the top of Las Vegas on the new motorized VooDoo ZipLine at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. With this single-ride ticket, soar up to 30 miles per hour at more than 400 feet off the ground in a comfortable, 2-seat chair. Take off from VooDoo Lounge, located on top of Rio’s 50-story Masquerade tower, and travel 800 feet to the Ipanema tower — with a 360-degree, open-air view of the Las Vegas Strip along the way. Then make the return trip facing backwards.
