What’s New in Las Vegas – March 13th, 2010

Las Vegas
? There is no better place to visit right now! The weather is beautiful (not too hot yet), the prices of hotel rooms are the same as they were 15 years ago (hellloooo 1994!) and Viator has more to offer than ever before (no joke – we really do). In the last few weeks, we have some new offerings available on our site to make that vacation even more memorable!

New Las Vegas Shows

First up, the mesmerizing acrobatic show, Matsuri at Imperial Palace. The act features a cast of 18 Japanese athletes who perform incredible stunts that show off their strength and flexibility. You’ll be amazed by what these performers can do!

To see some great musical talent, go to Planet Hollywood to watch Fab Four Live, a tribute show to the Beatles. These performers put on an excellent show, playing the Beatles’ greatest hits to perfection while also looking the part. See for yourself how well these musicians capture the sound and essence of this legendary band.

One of the most popular shows currently running on the Strip is Le Reve at the Wynn, an aquatic and acrobatic spectacle that is not to be missed. The characters dance, swim, dive and interact with the audience to play out a dream-like story of love and loss on an ever-shifting stage. Book a seat in the “splash zone” and get up close to the action!

Another act that is drawing big audiences is the Blue Man Group at the Venetian. This blue-faced trio combines music, comedy and multimedia theatrics to create a totally unique form of family-friendly entertainment. Their show is guaranteed to be nothing like you’ve ever seen before!

Las Vegas NASCAR to Hoover Dam

For those adrenaline junkies out there – we have just launched the Richard Petty Ride Along at Las Vegas Speedway. Here, you can take a few laps around the track with a professional NASCAR driver for that once-in-a-lifetime experience! To make the most out of your experience, you can upgrade to a tour of the speedway facility which also includes transport from the Strip. As a special offer, if you book and travel by July 31, 2009 – every guest will receive a free photo in the race car!

What better way to spend an evening than a romantic dinner and a helicopter flight over the famous Las Vegas Strip? We just released a brand new package that includes a 3-course meal, your helicopter flight over hotels such as the Bellagio, Paris, New York New York and the soon to be completed City Center, and all your transportation to and from the venues. For travel until July 31, you’ll receive a 20% discount off the retail price!

And finally, what trip to Vegas is complete without a visit to Hoover Dam? New on Viator this week is a helicopter flight over Hoover Dam. You will have incredible, unobstructed views of the dam, the incredible bridge that is soon to be complete as a Hoover Dam bypass (seriously amazing feat of engineering here), and stunning Lake Mead. Roundtrip transportation is also included from your hotel. Once again, we have a great deal for you – if you book now, you’ll get a 10% discount of the retail price.
