The Masquerade Show in the Sky is Gone

The Rio Masquerade Show in the Sky is now Closed.
The Rio’s floating parade is closed after 16 years.  We are truly sad to see this go.  We take all Vegas new comers to see this and the Buffet.  You haven’t been to Vegas unless you have seen this parade.  Vegas never holds on to anything, it is always looking forward.

We will miss getting our beads from the scantily clad dancers from above.  We can still hear the music, see the stage performance and the floats overhead.

The show started in 1997 as part of the Masquerade Village expansion.  We really loved this expansion and it won the Best Hotel – Cabbie award – Cab Drivers are never wrong, except when they take you through the tunnel.

Here is our original review of The Masquerade show in the Sky
<b>The Masquerade Show in the Sky</b><br>
The Masquerade Show in the Sky features floats that suspended from the ceiling above the casino floor.<br><br>

The show is very fun, exillerating and loud.  The show starts off with floor acts including jugglers and mimes, then they grab the rest of the performers and parade around the floor before the stage comes up from the casino floor and the floats start circling the ceiling.<br><br>
If you want to ride in one of the floats that hang from the ceiling it costs $12.95 <br><br>
It is really a must see show, along with the casino.

2011 World Series of Poker Continues this Weekend

WSOP 2011 Las VegasFor the three American players left at the World Series of Poker, it’s all about the big payday and living the dream. Phil Collins (no relation), Matt Giannetti, and Ben Lamb (who made $2 million over six weeks at the Rio) are all former college students with youth on their side that play quite aggressively, and are ready to take on the biggest moments in their poker careers after dominating the online poker scene. At noon Saturday at the Penn and Teller Theater at the Rio, they’ll get their shot.

If one of them wins, it would be the first time since 1998 that the champion’s gold bracelet stayed in Las Vegas. We wish them the best!
