Here’s What We Know About the Power Outage at Paris Las Vegas

Las Vegas Sign and the Paris Las Vegas Casino Hotel

Late last night, social media reports began to surface about a power outage at Paris Las Vegas. It was surprising news to hear from one of the biggest and best hotel-casinos in the city. Today, we’re going to discuss the details of this recent power shutoff.

This is the last thing Paris Casino-Resort needed. All of the casinos in Las Vegas have been hurting due to the drop in tourism and intense safety regulations set in place. A large-scale power outage won’t help to boost Paris’ visitation rates.

Let’s get into it!

Another New Casino-Resort Opens its Doors in Las Vegas

Downtown Las Vegas has always been a popular gambling area in Las Vegas. It doesn’t pull in the same kind of revenue figures that the Strip does, but prior to 2020, it’s been a successful part of the city. Next week, one of the most exciting new casino-resorts in Las Vegas will open up Downtown.

This new property, called Circa Las Vegas, has been under construction since 2019. There are a number of things that make this property stand out. Most of the attention that gambling fans are putting on it is the amazing sportsbook.

Circa will feature the largest sportsbook ever built in Downtown Las Vegas. It can accommodate up to 1,000 people at a time and features one of the largest screens of any casino in Las Vegas. This sportsbook is expected to bring in a large number of gamblers on opening day.

Many are also looking forward to the opening of the swimming pool at Circa. It will feature a massive television screen to watch sports. According to several reports, this is the largest pool ever built Downtown.

There’s a lot to look forward to here. Many are also excited about the opening of Resorts World Las Vegas next summer. It’s the most expensive casino-resort ever built in the city and features a massive gaming floor.

The Paris Hotel-Casino opened its doors slightly later than many of the other casino-resorts in this city. Unfortunately, news broke that this venue experienced a power outage this week.

Fire Department Confirms Power Outage at Paris Las Vegas

Paris Las Vegas is one of the most beloved casino-resorts in Las Vegas. It opened to the public in 1999 and has been through several renovations over the years. Back in June, after months of being closed, Paris Las Vegas finally reopened to the public.

Of course, this venue has been struggling to bring in revenue in recent years. That’s not uncommon right now. Each and every casino-resort based in Las Vegas has seen its casino revenue drop immensely over the past eight months.

To make things worse, there’s been a massive power outage at Paris Las Vegas this week. Reports began surfacing on Thursday evening. It was serious enough to force an evacuation of guests.

A spokesperson at Caesars Entertainment, the company that owns the Paris Las Vegas, released an official statement to the media today about this situation.

“This evening, Paris Las Vegas experienced a power outage that has since been restored. The health and safety of our guests and team members is a top priority, and we thank the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Las Vegas Fire & Rescue and NV Energy for their assistance in the matter.” 

Casino officials are still working to figure out the cause of this outage. Fortunately, power has been restored throughout the hotel. We’ll offer more updates on this situation as soon as they’re released.

Casino Companies Want to Bring Back Entertainment Options

Many of the world’s biggest casino companies are based in Las Vegas. In the past, these venues were able to bring in millions of visitors with their unique entertainment options. Obviously, most live entertainment has been canceled for the entire year.

Some casino officials now believe it’s time to bring these entertainment options back. Wynn Resorts CEO Matt Maddox spoke to the media about this situation this week. He’s pushing hard to open an in-lab testing center by Thanksgiving.

Caesars Entertainment seems to be taking things into its own hands. News reports surfaced yesterday that this company is resuming its live entertainment options in several properties including Caesars Palace, Harrah’s, and the Flamingo.

Jason Gastwirth, president of entertainment at Caesars Entertainment, spoke about this decision with the media.

“Live entertainment is an important part of the Las Vegas experience that makes visiting this city so special, and we are thrilled that we can be first to offer it to our guests again,” he said. “In collaboration with our entertainment partners and with the support of governing officials, we are happy to lead the city with an enhanced health and safety plan that will put our team members back to work and keep our guests comfortable while enjoying these popular shows once again.” 

Some feel it’s too soon, but Caesars seems to feel that it’s necessary to get guests back in. We’ll wait and see whether or not this strategy ends up paying off. Stay tuned for updates!

Therefore, if you are a mom who happens to love sports, make sure to check this place not only on Mother’s Day, but also on any other day in order to enjoy the great atmosphere in the bar.

Eiffel Tower Light Show Debuts at Paris Las Vegas

The Las Vegas strip was illuminated by the powerful lights that came from Paris Las Vegas, which debuted a $1.7 million light show that was a part of the Eiffel Tower. This happened on February 27, as the show was supported by Guy Savoy, one of the most popular chefs in the world, along with Line Renaud, a famous French actress and singer. Furthermore, the debut light show was supported by Jim Gibson, Clark County Commissioner.

Paris Las Vegas saw a total of $92 million being invested over the course of one year in order to improve their offer and elevate the experience offered to guests who decide to stay in this resort. Some of the upgrades conducted include 1,600 guest rooms that were renovated, as well as Voie Spa & Salon, which is a brand new addition to the resort.

The main reason for this investment and upgrade lies in the fact that Paris Las Vegas is celebrating their platinum anniversary, which is a huge accomplishment.

About the Lights

The main inspiration for the light show was obviously the Eiffel Tower in Paris, which has extraordinary lighting. The attraction in Paris Las Vegas will feature a free show which will actually consist of numerous colored lights that would be choreographed so as to provide an amazing experience to those who decide to watch this light show.

Visitors of the Strip will be able to enjoy this show during the night time as there will be a lot of interesting twinkling lights that will make everyone’s stay at Las Vegas better. The whole thing is done after Paris Las Vegas partnered up with Vision Sign Inc. These two companies agreed on installing more than 300 light fixtures as well as 800 white strobe lights on the exterior of the tower.

If you happen to be in Las Vegas, you can enjoy the nightly show every half an hour during the night time from sunset to midnight. It is definitely an interesting thing to witness, and it will leave you mesmerized with all the interesting choreography and twinkling going on.

Gary Selesner, Regional President of Paris Las Vegas, stated that as they celebrate the 20th anniversary, Paris Las Vegas will continue to offer the same level of romance, sophistication, and spirit that the European City of Lights gives off to tourists. He added that besides the light show, the resort would also offer world-class accommodation with redesigned guest rooms and many other interesting culinary and entertainment options.

The iconic symbol of Paris was replicated in Las Vegas back on September 1, 1999, and it is the tallest replica of the Eiffel Tower. This landmark is only half of the height of the real Eiffel Tower, but it is still one of the biggest attractions in Las Vegas. This attraction includes almost 5,000 tons of wielded still and visitors can visit it every day from 10 am to midnight. The landmark features the Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck, which you can climb to in order to get a good view of the city, and knowledgeable Ambassadors can help you recognize certain landmarks of Las Vegas while you are up there.

In other words, this replica is one of the biggest attractions in Las Vegas, and it is the closest to Paris that you can get without actually going there. If you like France and plan to visit its capital, you can have a similar experience by visiting the Paris Las Vegas resort and enjoying all the interesting facilities included in it.  With the new light show, you’re sure to have an incredible experience that will make you feel just as spoiled as if you were actually in France!
