Luxor Tips (78)

RMS Titanic Exhibit

I wanted to see this exhibit and so did my son. It was somber, sad, and fascinating. They did an excellent job with their wonderful displays and the care of the artifacts to preserve them. As you walk from room to room, it takes on a character of its own. They have some wonderful educational poster of information of many of passengers and how they came to board the Titanic. The only bad thing was the lighting, it was hard to read some of the dispay boards. Yet, I do know they do this to preserve the artifacts. No photography is allowed. A little expensive, but we received a discount with our AAA card, so that was neat. This is well worth your money and time.

Luxor

Fun place to visit. It's a mid level casino hotel located a little too far from the actual Strip.
It is connected to Excalibur and Mandalay Bay Hotels by passageway.

Luxor Hotel features entertainment with celebrity performers (Criss Angel, Carrot Top), shows (Menopause The musical, Fantasy) and exhibition (Bodies, Titanic).

Bodies - The Exhibition

This controversial exhibit featuring ... brrrrrrrr... Real Live Dead Bodies (13 of them and 260 organs) freeze-dry. Some people find the Exhibition amazing, some - disturbing, and some - boring... We decided to find better use for money :)

General Admission $32.00 + service fee
Senior (Over 65 & Military) $30.00
Children (4-12) $24.00

The Box Office is located at The Luxor Hotel and Casino and is open from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM seven days a week.

NOTE: cameras, video camera phones are prohibited inside the galleries.

Get swept away by the Egyptians . . .

This hotel is shaped like a pyramid. It has a sphinx outside which is huge! Take some time to have a look around this Eygptian themed hotel and casino.

They boast the best celebrity packed shows, there are exibitions and so many places to grab a snack and something to drink (alcoholic & non-alcoholic!).

Give it a go, I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I did. It's a great place to explore and is also connected to Excalibur and Mandalay Bay. You could spend a day exploring the three hotels!

"4th Largest Pyramid in the World part 3"

Part three of my several part tips of the luxor with more pictures as Vt only allows 5 per tip.

The Luxor is located on the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip, opposite the McCarran International Airport. The resort is flanked by the Mandalay Bay to the south and by the Excalibur to the north; all three are connected by free express and local trams. All three properties were built by Mandalay Resort Group. The building is a 30 story tall pyramid (fourth largest pyramid in the world!) that brings you into an Egyptian paradise with a mysterious air. Over the course of your stay, you will see awe-inspiring sights that will remain with you after you leave from your vacation. The Luxor Las Vegas is one of the well known hotel and casinos that help give Vegas such a shining reputation.
When the resort opened, it featured a more heavily Egyptian-themed interior, including a river that encircled the casino with a ferry that would carry guests to their inclinator core at the corners of the pyramid. According to the unofficial ghost story, the Nile River attraction was removed because guests kept seeing ghosts of the three workers killed during the Luxor's construction whenever the river passed through dark tunnels.
Luxor has a 120,000 square foot casino. This casino keeps with the Egyptian theme, while remaining one of the largest and most elegant casinos in Las Vegas. There are a wide variety of games available for play, which allows everyone to find something of interest to them.
Attractions include: The Tomb of Tutankhamun (This replica of the tomb discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter is a great sight to see if you are interested in the history and glamor of Egypt. It is open daily from 9 A.M. to 11 P.M. Admittance is $5); In Search of the Obelisk ( Considered one of the best motion simulator rides in Las Vegas, it is well worth the $7.50 to ride) In order to be able to ride this ride, you will need to be over 42 inches tall); Luxor IMAX (This 68 foot by 48 foot screen lets you see some of the most interesting shows on a huge screen that pulls you into the action. Admission fees to see the show is $9.95)

Oasis Spa

Go ahead -- pamper yourself. You know you deserve it. Let me say I am not normally a "spa" person. I'm a tomboy; I don't wear makeup; brushing my hair is as fancy as I get with hairdos. However, having access to the ultimate in relaxation and stress-relief is right up my alley.

The Oasis Spa was a relaxing experience like no other I've had. I signed up for a riverstone massage because I'd been wondering what this heated stone fuss was all about. Much to my surprise, my $140 got me access to all of the spa -- water, juice, and snacks; steam room; sauna; whirlpool; showers with variously fragranced products; and a "finish" area with free haircare products, blowdryers, etc. (And, after my 4pm massage, I could have returned to the spa anytime up until midnight.) The massage was incredible, especially after I'd spent the last two days wandering the desert and hiking up and down the Strip. Go on -- splurge!

A word to the wise, which I wish I'd known. The spa, which is in two parts and completely segregated into male and female, is "clothing optional" in the sauna/steamroom/whirlpool area. When I went, all had "opted" to wear their swimsuits -- but mine was in my room. I didn't feel comfortable being the only naked person around, so I sweated it out (literally) in my little spa robe. Next time I'll bring my suit.

(And this isn't just for women; my husband got a riverstone massage too and had the same reaction I did.)

Luxor Casino

From our hotel we could walk through these long tunnel like halls straight to the Luxor. We did so one night and had a look around the casino and shops. We considered staying here and the slanted walls (ceilings??) were cool inside the pyramid. Worth seeing but I prefered to look at the light shining up into the sky from the windows of our hotel.

head to yet another continent

Europe starting to bore you? Forget those cheap charter flights in Europe. Egypt is just a few steps away when you're in Vegas. The Pyramids (well, one)? The Sphinx? They're here. Who needs history? These babies are bright and shiny and make for nice pictures.
