Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall in Las Vegas has a new water and laser show designed by the same technological artists that have done laser shows for Walt Disney World, Cirque du Soleil, and Six Flags.
The Boulder Strip property recently debuted the updated laser light show with more advanced effects, new music and a wide range of colors. The free attraction plays three times nightly in the indoor atrium located between the hotel’s casino and buffet.
“The show was dated, the music was dated and the technology was dated,” said Sam’s Town Vice President and General Manager John Sou. “We looked at what we previously had and wanted to expand.”
The upgrade is the first major renovation of the show since it first opened in 1994.
Up until last month, the seven-minute show consisted primarily of a Western adventure, with lights, music and animatronic characters chronicling the pioneer experience. The new show runs 15 minutes and features several different themes, including a tribute to patriotism and an homage to stock car racing. The production begins as it had before, but now segues into the new parts.
The production still has more changes in store. At the end of November, it will undergo a winter makeover with garlands, lights, a holiday soundtrack and even falling snow.
