It’s Family Fun For The Holidays at The Forum Shops at Caesars

FROM FAMILY FUN TO LUXURY RETAIL;
IT’S ALL AT THE FORUM SHOPS AT CAESARS IN LAS VEGAS

 

World-Renowned Shopping Experience Offers Something for Every Member of the Family

 

 It’s time to go holiday shopping, and a trip to The Forum Shops can be an event for the whole family between the great shopping, dining, and one-of-a-kind attractions. The sheer number of stores at The Forum Shops will keep kids’ eyes roving, and the trademark sky-feature above and world-famous spiral escalator will make them happy shopping companions.  Below is a list of additional attractions for families:
  • The Atlantis Aquarium: The 50,000-gallon saltwater aquarium features colorful tropical fish and is 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 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, beginning at 11:00 a.m.
  • 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.
  • Kids Kastle: Need a baby or kid-sized signature Elvis white sequined jumpsuit, complete with a gold pair of sunglasses? Or how about a backpack that doubles as a dinosaur shell?  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 is a hit all year, but it seems especially suited to the holidays. Feast on chocolate pizza, chocolate drinks and other innovative chocolate creations at Max Brenner’s location at The Forum Shops.
  • Sony: For the tech lovers in the family, check out the Sony store with its tablets, digital still cameras, and video recorders. The family that takes ski trips may need the new Action Cam, a high-definition video camera with built-in Wi-Fi, Carl Zeiss® optics, and a rugged exterior that can take on mud, snow, and water.
  • Apple: For more high tech gear, the whole family can marvel at the products at the Apple store, including the much-coveted iPad, the unbelievably light MacBook Air, and the new iPhone 5 with its sleek, longer design. If new tech toys aren’t in the cards this Christmas though, family members can at least pick out their own gadget accessories from iPhone cases to laptop sleeves and messenger bags.
  • 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. A large variety of 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 Dick Butkus.
  • Nike: This huge Nike store features innovative NIKEiD customization for apparel, runner’s service Nike+, the exclusive technology that allows runners to track their distance, pace, calories and more. New iMac stations, iPod charging docks and wireless connectivity allows runners to sync up their run at NikePlus.com. Runners can also test-drive the latest Nike footwear and receive expert tips from Nike store athletes.
  • Three-level freestanding spiral 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 and other prestigious shopping venues worldwide. With 160 specialty shops and restaurants The Forum Shops is unlike any other shopping experience in the world.
