Vegas Vic

The Vegas Vic sign is one of Downtown Las Vegasís most well-known marquees which over its years has also been a symbol of Downtown Las Vegasís notable, long-term legacy.  This memorable sign has appeared in a number of older movies.  It has been an exemplar of vintage ďold Las VegasĒ.  The concept of Vegas Vicís character was originally created for the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce to develop local tourism.  Young Electric Sign Company then used Vegas Vic to create a neon sign promoting Pioneer Club Casino located on Fremont Street.  The neon signís first use was in 1951 when it was installed on Pioneer Club Casinoís faÁade.  The original sign featured a moving arm, as well as an audio greeting welcoming guests to Downtown Las Vegas.  It weighed around 6 tons and was 40 feet tall. 

There have been some changes to Vegas Vic and the Casino throughout the past decades.  In the 1990s when Fremont Street Experienceís dome was installed, Vegas Vicís hat was too large to fit inside.  The hat was trimmed in order to compensate.  When Fremont Street Experience opened as an attraction in the 1990s, the Pioneer Club Casino became a souvenir shop.  Vegas Vic remained, however, and it was later refurbished in 2000.

This included changing its neon, which also introduced a new type of look.  Vegas Vicís audio greeting had been considered unpleasant by some.  Its greeting was removed, only to be reinstalled again in later years.  The sign currently does not employ a sound feature that greets guests.  The moving feature of Vegas Vicís arm was also eventually discontinued, and the signís arm was placed in a stationary position.  However, because Vegas Vicís moving arm had operated for many years, this hallmark still remains a famous historical feature of the marquee.

The famous Vegas Vic sign is certainly a must-see, enduring feature of Downtown Las Vegas.  It adds to the overall appeal of Fremont Street Experience, and is a worthwhile reason to visit Downtown Las Vegas for those who have never seen this lasting, authentic symbol of old Las Vegas.

The Volcano

The Volcano at The Mirage is one of Las Vegasís classic, must-see attractions.  It draws visitors nightly for an incredible show.  Every hour at nightfall mists, jetting water, flames, and powerful lighting effects create the illusion of a smoldering volcano flowing with streams of bright red and orange magma surrounded by bursts of flames.  The show develops with complex musical percussion featuring a multiform of drums.  Chorusing sounds enhance the fantasy pyroclastic experience. 

At first the rocky volcano is revealed with white lighting.  Then the white lights go out, and the show begins.  There is a pattern of mist illuminated by bright colored lights at the core.  The appearance of active molten rock, with flashes of intense yellow, red, and orange colors takes shape.  The mist rises higher and falls at times.  An impression of high temperatures and rising lava blobs evolves, as well as lava flows traveling down the side of the volcano into the water below, casting off a smoky-looking mist in the process.  These effects become more intense and include bursts of flames.  The percussion begins to quicken as the show progresses.  Bursts of fire come from the volcano, on its sides, and from dozens of points in the watery area below.  There is an intense ending before the show goes dark.

Why See a Las Vegas Show?

           Your Community Theater Show Isn't the Same

A Las Vegas show photoOkay, so you live in New York, home of Broadway.  You live in L.A., movie capitol of the world.  You live in London, stomping grounds of William Shakespeare.  You live in Muskogee, Oklahoma, and your community theater really did a great job with this year's production of "Annie, Get Your Gun."  Why would you want to spend a hundred and fifty dollars on a Las Vegas show?

Look here, Las Vegas is just the best place in the world to see a live spectacle.  I know other cities are more deeply tied to the history of show business, and have generated a lot of die-hard love over the years.  I know that big-name Hollywood stars wanting to get a little more serious go to Broadway, and New York actors who want to make a little more money go to Los Angeles.  And I know that Las Vegas is historically famous only for sequins, skin, and feathers.  All I have to say to that is:  The times, they have changed.

           Las Vegas Shows are the Best in the World

A Las Vegas show girlHere's why:

Las Vegas show producers are blessed with the ability to pay their performers.  Anyone who thinks this is common is welcome to ask an actor.  Right now in theater communities all around the world, show people are gathering together, rehearsing constantly, and working their butts off, all hoping that the show will be a success and they'll have paychecks for a little while.  Well, Las Vegas can lure the sweetest musicians, the prettiest dancers, and the funniest comedians with its promise of year-round work and steady pay.  The difference is obvious.  Even the cheap shows here are great.  Sure, Las Vegas doesn't draw the big-name movie stars to act in its shows.  But do big-name movie stars make a show better?  Do you remember Val Kilmer as Moses in "The Ten Commandments: The Musical?"  How about Katie Holmes in... ...Read More
