All Shook Up –A Tribute to the King

No other performer has influenced rock ’n’ roll as much as Elvis Presley, which makes the tribute performance All Shook Up so compelling. Sing and dance to your favorite hits by The King at this high-energy performance at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.

Penn and Teller

Penn and Teller’s live show has a permanent home in Las Vegas at the Rio Suite Hotel and Casino. Don’t miss their outrageous blending of comedy and magic, which stretches the boundaries of every imagination.

Planet Hollywood Casino

Try your luck at this high-energy casino where you will feel like an A-list movie star. Enjoy an atmosphere that stimulates all the senses—dancers, lights, and music. Plenty of popular table games like Vegas blackjack, roulette or craps or poker and 1,200 slot machines, ranging from penny video slots to popular progressive games like poker, Wheel of Fortune, Megabucks and Monopoly.

Eiffel Tower Experience

This is one of Las Vegas’ premier attractions with absolutely amazing views. An icon of the city skyline, the high-altitude attraction is located 46 stories up and is a half-scale replica of the world-famous Paris, France landmark. The observation deck features 360-degree city views and don’t miss the unforgettable night view of the bright, colorful lights and the lit water show.

Gregory Popovich’s Comedy Pet Theater

This extravaganza of juggling, European-style comedy, and a furry entourage of performing cats and dogs. Loved by all ages, this unique and hilarious show features cats and dogs that have been rescued from animal shelters. Enjoy a display of amazing feats such as jumping, dancing, flying through the air, or balancing—as cats perform alongside dogs, birds, and white mice. All led and orchestrated by circus superstar and master juggler Gregory Popovich.

High Roller

Take a spin on the world’s tallest Ferris wheel. Measuring 520 feet in diameter, the High Roller faces north and south parallel to Las Vegas Boulevard. The observation wheel takes 30 minutes to complete one full revolution and features 28 glass-enclosed cabins with stunning views, especially at night. Each spherical cabin can hold up to 40 people, with benches on either side of the cabin and room to stand.

Fountains Of Bellagio

This spectacular show of thoughtfully interwoven water, music and light is designed to mesmerize. Cited as the most ambitious, complex water feature ever conceived and it’s absolutely free for any visitor to enjoy. This amazing aquatic accomplishment will surely delight as you enjoy a concert of opera, classical, Broadway, and pop tunes. The fountains are set in an 8-acre manmade lake serviced by a freshwater well and incorporate a network of pipes with more than 1,200 nozzles choreographed with more than 4,500 lights.

Many of these attractions require tickets and have varying schedules. Please be sure to check with local representatives to ensure you make the most of your visit.
