Things Get Shakin' A Little Later Than Expected At Planet Hollywood

Where: 3667 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109
September 30, 2014 at 9:55 PM | by | Comments (2)

We'll have to wait a tad longer to see what singer and dancer Eric Jordan Young’s got “Shakin’” in the Sin City Theater at Planet Hollywood. Young’s new show has been pushed back a week to get all the details finalized. It will now open Saturday, October 4.

The former Vegas! The Show standout will now have his own show. Expect a live band and modern renditions of popular pop, rock, funk, R&B and jazz songs as Young puts his own spin on classic hits with the help of other Broadway-caliber co-directors and technical crew.

Cowabunga Bay Here, GameWorks Opening Soon

July 7, 2014 at 11:22 AM | by | Comments (5)

While Vegas will never (knocks on wood) try to be a family mecca when it comes to tourism again, it's turning out to be a great time to be young at heart in Sin City.

There's the Slotzilla zip lines downtown, VooDoo Zip Line at Rio, The High Roller observation wheel at The Linq, El Loco roller coaster at The Adventuredome, and the return of Wet 'n' Wild, too. This month adds two more attractions to the list -- Cowabunga Bay, a long-delayed water park in Henderson, and the return of GameWorks.

At Rio, Not A Bird Nor A Plane But Zipline Test Riders

May 19, 2014 at 5:19 PM | by | Comments (8)

Will the Rio's delayed VooDoo Zip Line finally open this Friday, May 23?

Signs are hopeful with an inside source telling our friends at Vegas Rover today that this weekend is still a go with either a Friday or a Saturday, May 24 debut. Test riders were spotted flying between the off-Strip resort's hotel towers throughout the weekend. VegasChatter reader Henry M. reports visiting family at the Rio who had a "great view of the loading zone." He tells us single riders were taking multiple trips all Saturday afternoon. Henry snapped the pictures you see at the top of this post as well as just below.

We know, promises, promises. We hear that Naked Eyes song from way back, too. But, our friends over at the Vegas Rover Facebook page have it on good authority (read: a worker) that the much-delayed VooDoo Zip Line at Rio will open in just over a week.

After missing touted return dates of November 2013 and March 2014, GameWorks has a such a bad case of the Vegas delays that it's fallen into Slotzilla mode and is just not committing to anything, anymore.
