NEW “FLIGHT OF FLIGHTS” EXPERIENCE FEATURING LAS VEGAS HELICOPTER FLIGHTS, ZIPLINING ON THE STRIP

AVAILABLE BEGINNING TODAY

 Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters, FLY LINQ and The Book

at The LINQ Hotel & Casino Create New Spring Package

 

 

Beginning today for the first time, the “Flight of Flights” experience is now available; the package includes three experiences: Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters’ Las Vegas Strip flight at sunset; FLY LINQ ziplining and a beer flight from The Book at The LINQ Hotel & Casino.

 

Beginning with a shuttle pick-up at The LINQ Hotel & Casino’s tour bus depot, guests are taken to the Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters terminal at McCarran International Airport. From there, they are whisked away to fly over the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Las Vegas at sunset. The tour provides dazzling bird’s-eye views of all the city’s iconic landmarks including New York-New York Hotel & Casino’s skyscrapers,  Luxor sky beam, Paris Las Vegas’ Eiffel Tower and Fountains of Bellagio—all before making a hairpin turn around the 1,000-foot-high Strat.

Next, the shuttle returns guests to The LINQ Hotel & Casino where they make their way to FLY LINQ, the only zipline in the world to offer guests four different ways to fly – seated position or “superhero-style,” with both options available facing either forward or backward. Guests will descend from FLY LINQ’s 114-foot-tall launch tower to the landing tower near the base of High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel. Flying at nearly 40 MPH, riders will soar 1,121 feet above the entire length of The LINQ Promenade.

 

Once guests’ feet are firmly on the ground, they can take the edge off and conclude their experience with a beer flight at The Book at The LINQ Hotel & Casino. The beer flight includes four 5-ounce draft beers from The Book’s infamous “beer yourself” self-pouring beer wall with nearly 25 beers on tap including seasonal specialties. The Book is the Strip’s newest and most innovative race and sports book experience offering live leaderboards, gaming consoles and five augmented reality games.

 

Priced at $149 per person, two-person minimum (gratuity not included), this experience also includes roundtrip transfers between The LINQ Hotel & Casino and the Papillon Las Vegas terminal. For more information and to book this experience:

Reimagining the Sports Book and Bar Experience,
The BOOK at The LINQ Hotel & Casino to Debut Early September

Fan Caves, Self-Serve Beer Taps, Unique Food and Beverage Offerings and More Create the Most Experiential and Technologically Savvy Sports Book on the Strip

The latest evolution of the sports book and bar experience is set to debut at The LINQ Hotel & Casino early September with the opening of The Book. Enhancing the traditional sports book model wherein guests and fans merely gathered to watch sports and bet on gaming action, The Book is designed for guests to take FULL control of their gaming odyssey. With innovative technology, mobile and self-serve opportunities, and plenty of sports and bar games to engage in, The Book promises to be immersive, socially-driven and unapologetically now.

“With the world’s fascination with sports and the rapid evolution of sports wagering across the nation, we wanted to create a space that resembles the sports books of tomorrow—we believe The Book is just that.” said Christian Stuart, Caesars Entertainment Executive Vice President of Gaming & Interactive Entertainment. “The Book introduces the next generation of the sports book and bar experience by welcoming guests to view and bet on your favorite sports while going head to head with friends on Xbox or an augmented reality game from your drink coaster, all in the comfort of your own fan cave with some delicious wings and craft beers.”

In addition to a new Race and Sports betting desk, The Book features 87 televisions, some as large as 98”, and the Strip’s highest resolution LED video wall. Among the many additional high-tech and high-touch features of The Book are:

FAN CAVES: The Strip’s first rentable living rooms for you and your friends on game day, featuring 98” guest-controlled televisions, Xboxes, virtual reality goggles, bottle and drink service and more. 12 Fan Caves, with food and beverage packages, will be available to purchase for the big game or a casual hang.

THE TABLET EXPERIENCE: Take control of your experience with The Book’s tablet interface – order food and drinks, bet live sports on the Caesars mobile app or play augmented reality games all from your seat.

STICKY CHICKEN: This is not your neighborhood food truck. Sticky Chicken is chicken with an attitude. More than 10 different wing combinations and monster sandwiches including the soon-to-be famous Gladiator, made with ricotta pesto, grilled mozzarella and spicy Italian sausage topped with a ciabatta roll, make this some of the best chicken west of the Mississippi.

COASTERS AND NAPKINS: Did you think that your paper products were only for holding your drink? Not here. Within a month, your drink coaster or napkin triggers augmented reality games to challenge your friends for bragging rights.

The Book will also feature a self-serve beer wall with 24 taps including lagers, favorites and IPA’s; leaderboards where you can prove your sports betting prowess; and other games to challenge friends or to make new ones.

The Book will be located just steps from Las Vegas Blvd. in The LINQ Hotel & Casino with convenient access from The LINQ Promenade. Space is limited. Reservations are highly encouraged. To reserve space at the Book for your favorite game, call 702-370-7736.

Caesars Entertainment Introduces Fly LINQ at The LINQ Promenade, the First Zipline Experience on the Las Vegas Strip

CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT INTRODUCES FLY LINQ AT THE LINQ
PROMENADE, THE FIRST ZIPLINE EXPERIENCE ON THE LAS VEGAS STRIP

Today, Caesars Entertainment Corporation, owner of The LINQ Promenade, announced the intended addition of Fly LINQ, expected to be the first and only zipline on the Las Vegas Strip. Developed by the team behind the High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel, the approximately $20 million Fly LINQ features 10 side-by-side zip lines, capable of simultaneously launching all riders. The experience will be constructed on The LINQ Promenade, the open-air shopping, dining and entertainment district situated at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Construction is expected to begin in the spring of next year.

“Fly LINQ will further establish The LINQ Promenade as a must-visit destination, particularly for distinctive Las Vegas entertainment experiences,” said Bob Morse, President of Hospitality, Caesars Entertainment Corporation. “This new experience will join The LINQ Promenade’s growing number of thrilling and memorable entertainment, dining and retail options.”

Guests are expected to begin their ride experience by taking an elevator designed to provide open strip views from the Vortex at The LINQ Hotel & Casino to the top of the 122-foot-tall launch tower. After enjoying spectacular views of the Strip during the ascent, it is planned that guests will arrive on the launch deck, where queuing and gear-fitting will take place. Riders can choose to ride in either a “superman” or seated position.

From the launch tower, the ride continues eastward, traveling 1,080 feet above The LINQ Promenade. Riders disembark near the base of the High Roller. To remember their exhilarating experience, guests will be able to opt to purchase professional photos—either individually or as a group—dressed in full flight gear and in mid-air.

Fly LINQ is expected to feature two automated gear retrieval lines that will keep queues moving quickly by swiftly returning gear back to the launch tower. In addition, it is planned to feature an innovative, custom-built automated ride system as well as best-in-class technology developed by global leaders in zipline construction.

Fly LINQ is being developed in conjunction with Xventure LV, LLC, a company built by hospitality and attractions industry veterans, delivering the most advanced thrill rides in the most exciting locations imaginable. Xventure specializes in high-capacity adventure rides situated in prime urban locations and Fly LINQ will be its most ambitious project to date. Xventure will lead the development and operations of Fly LINQ.

“Xventure is thrilled to work with Caesars Entertainment to give thrill seekers an adrenaline-packed experience in the center of the Las Vegas Strip,” says Joey Paulos, principal and managing member of Xventure.

Fly LINQ will reunite many of the team members behind the development of the High Roller observation wheel, including Themed Development Management (TDM) as project manager. In addition to the High Roller, TDM’s principals and executives have extensive experience in creating major theme parks and attractions.

MAGICIAN MAT FRANCO MAKES LARGE DONATION OF NEEDED SUPPLIES
TO THE ANIMAL FOUNDATION IN CELEBRATION OF FIRST ANNIVERSARY
OF MAGIC REINVENTED NIGHTLY, SEPT. 9
Supply Drive Raises More than $5,000 in Animal Care Supplies, $1,680 in Monetary Donations

Today (Sept. 9, 2016), magician Mat Franco presented The Animal Foundation with a donation of more than $5,000 in much-needed animal care supplies and $1,680 in monetary gifts to benefit the more than 30,000 animals that are cared for annually by the organization. The master of sleight-of-hand met with representatives from the state’s largest open-admission animal shelter for a tour of the eight-acre property and to make the sizable donation, which was the product of a month-long, community-driven supply drive held in partnership with Sunny 106.5 FM and Petco in celebration of a tremendous year of continued success and sold-out audiences at MAGIC REINVENTED NIGHTLY at The LINQ Hotel & Casino.

 

“Unlike humans, animals don’t have a voice to speak for themselves,” shared Franco. “So I was excited to find a way to help out our furry friends while thanking the community who’s been so supportive of our show in the process.”

 

Throughout the month of August, the young magician offered fans and community members the opportunity to receive a complimentary ticket voucher to experience MAGIC REINVENTED NIGHTLY in return for the donation of a minimum of $10 worth of items from The Animal Foundation’s wish list, which was comprised of blankets, collars, harnesses, leashes, dog and cat treats and toys, and more.

 

“We are grateful for Mat’s generosity in organizing this donation drive on our behalf, and the community for the overwhelming number of donations,” said Elysia Sheldon, events manager at The Animal Foundation. “These donations will not only help the animals at The Animal Foundation, but also pets in under-served areas of the community.”

 

The Animal Foundation houses and provides care for thousands of lost, unwanted, neglected and abandoned animals of varying species each year, and is in constant need of supplies to continue providing top-quality care for its animals. To learn more about the needs of The Animal Foundation, visit AnimalFoundation.com.

KEEP MEMORY ALIVE’S 20TH ANNUAL POWER OF LOVE® GALA
HONOREE, TONY BENNETT, RECOGNIZED WITH LAS VEGAS MARQUEE DISPLAY AND STREET RENAMING

 

On Thursday, May 19, Keep Memory Alive’s 20th annual Power of Love® gala honoree, Tony Bennett, was recognized as 20 Las Vegas marquees around the city lit up with an image of the world-renowned artist in celebration of his 90th birthday and participation in the Gala. More than 50 people attended the invite-only fête, including Bennett’s wife Susan Benedetto, while dozens of onlookers gathered around to watch the ceremony, which took place on the iconic Brooklyn Bridge at New York-New York Hotel & Casino.

 

Local Las Vegas entertainer Mark Shunock served as the emcee of the soiree and kicked-off the event by introducing the man of the hour, Bennett, and Keep Memory Alive Co-Founder and Chairman Larry Ruvo. Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak then gave remarks recognizing Bennett’s outstanding career by proclaiming Las Vegas Boulevard to be renamed “Tony Bennett Boulevard” for the full day of the Gala on Saturday, May 21. Following Sisolak’s presentation, Rossi Ralenkotter, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Visitors and Convention Authority, acknowledged Bennett’s impact on Las Vegas.

 

Next, Bennett and Ruvo took to the stage to discuss Bennett’s career, milestone birthday and what Keep Memory Alive and brain health means to him. Ruvo then lead the crowd in singing “Happy Birthday,” which concluded with a Dom Pérignon champagne toast by Shunock as the marquees illuminated with Bennett’s picture. Las Vegas marquees that helped mark the occasion included Bally’s Las Vegas, Caesars Palace, Excalibur Hotel & Casino, Fashion Show Mall, Fremont Street Experience, Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino, Harrah’s Las Vegas, M Resort, Maverick Helicopters, Miracle Mile Shops, MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, New York-New York Hotel & Casino, Paris Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood, Rio All-Suite hotel & Casino, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, The Cromwell, The Linq Hotel & Casino, Tropicana Casino Hotel Resort, Wynn | Encore.

 

Bennett will be honored Saturday, May 21 during the 20th annual Power of Love gala at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, where some of the biggest entertainers in the industry will join together to celebrate Bennett and his career. James Corden, Andra Day, Darius Rucker, Jordin Sparks, Steven Tyler and more will perform heart-felt tributes of some of Bennett’s infamous hits. Continuing its 20-year history, the star-studded event raises funds and awareness for Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health and its fight against brain disease including Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s and Parkinson’s diseases, multiple sclerosis and multiple system atrophy.

Life is Beautiful Festival Unveils Footprint for its Sophomore Year in Downtown Las Vegas

Music, Food, Art and Learning Event Combines Festival Environment with City Streets 

Friday, October 24 through Sunday, October 26

Tickets on sale now at lifeisbeautiful.com

 

Once again converting a sprawling city landscape into festival grounds, Life is Beautiful reveals the 15 city blocks it will secure and incorporate into its music, food, art and learning event on October 24-26, 2014 in Downtown Las Vegas.

 

“Every year the footprint of Life is Beautiful will be completely unique because instead of working with a blank canvas like a park or open areas that can be fenced, we take over an ever-evolving urban landscape with preexisting buildings, roads and infrastructure,” said festival founder Rehan Choudhry, “We have the opportunity to incorporate and really highlight the distinctive aspects of a growing Downtown Las Vegas.”

 

Expecting to attract tens of thousands of people over the expanded three-day event, Life is Beautiful will be hosted in a similar layout to its inaugural festival last year. With the cooperation of The City of Las Vegas and Downtown Project, the Life is Beautiful perimeter will create an “L-shape” footprint incorporating street blocks from Las Vegas Boulevard to 10th Street, and Carson Avenue to Mesquite Ave. More than 25 businesses within the footprint, comprising of many new operations that have opened to the public since last year’s festival such as the Container Park, will be programmed with events and activations.

 

“We owe much of the success of last year’s festival to the support of the city officials and inclusive businesses and look forward to the same great relationships this year,” continues Choudhry. “In no other place in the world would we be able to put on this type of festival, and for that we are continually grateful.”

Life is Beautiful Festival unveils another pillar for its 2014 culture festival taking place Friday, October 24 through Sunday, October 26. The art program is designed to create a live urban gallery that is seamlessly integrated into the festival footprint by employing several mediums of visual art from large-scale murals and instalments to interactive art centers and immersive galleries.

“The art program is as integral to the overall festival experience as any other aspect at Life is Beautiful,” said festival founder Rehan Choudhry, “ Our goal is to change individual’s everyday relationship with art by inspiring creativity and challenging perspectives, especially amongst those who normally wouldn’t consider themselves art enthusiasts.”

The festival’s art program is comprised of two separate initiatives, each bringing artists out of their traditional studios and galleries and into the streets of Downtown Las Vegas. The art program will be expanding in 2014 to also take over the Western Hotel to create a completely captivating space that will utilize all of the senses to offer a unique and engaging experience for festival goers.

 

Street Art

Evident by last year’s successful program and the many murals that still exist on the streets of downtown today, the urban surroundings of the Life is Beautiful Festival provide a perfect backdrop for the eclectic and semi-permanent street art program featuring some of the biggest names in the international street art scene. Curated by Charlotte Dutoit (Justkids), the street art program will transform the festival landscape into a magical art-inspired playground to give people a playful and unexpected escape into art.

 

Contributing artists include:

Borondo (Spain) – Borondo is a rising Spanish urban artist, currently living in London, heralded for his classical painting techniques. Since his formal studies, Borondo has painted large-scale street art in the USA, Brazil, Turkey and across Europe. He quickly became London’s most talked about artist.

CYRCLE. (U.S) – This collective of street artists, graphic designers and traditional fine artists  from Los Angeles has been developing their own language for the past few years. In that brief time, CYRCLE. has made a massive impact on the street and gallery scene, quickly gaining the respect of the international art community. Their aesthetic combines Classic Romanticism with alchemic symbolism, introducing it to the contemporary world through street campaigns, gallery work, and collaborations.

D*Face (UK) – After participating in the 2013 festival, D*Face is involved once again in this year’s street art program.  Considered one of most prolific contemporary urban artists of his generation, he has been a leading figure in urban art for well over a decade.

Misaki Kawai (Japan) – Japanese Brooklyn bases artist, works with painting, drawing, sculpture, installations and books. Her works are filled with colorful characters, who appear to come from the dream world of film, music and comics. Strongly influenced by today’s consumer society – of which she herself is a part – Kawai fuses East with West, humour with seriousness and dreams with reality. In 2014 she was oart of the show “This is not a toy” co-curated by Pharrel Williams along Takashi Murakami and Kaws.

Li – Hill (Canada) – He incorporates found objects and unconventional materials to structure complex multi-layered pieces that are as aesthetic as they are thought provoking.

Fintan Magee (Australia) – Moving away from the traditional graffiti in recent years, the Australian artist has started to explore new ideas and imagery within his painting. In the last three years he has created  some  of  the  largest  and  most  interesting  street  pieces around the world.

Maser (Ireland) – Maser first started painting graffiti in Ireland in 1995 and quickly gained a reputation as one of the most innovative artists working in the field. Alongside  his  paintings  in  the public  realm,  Maser  also  produces  works  on  canvas,  video  and 3D  installations.

ROA (Belgium) – Renowned for his unique portrayal of large scale urban wildlife, disquietly cohabiting city streets, hand painted in his distinctive black and white style.
