Las Vegas Strip Casino bets big on bold (cold) idea | Arena

You can do just about anything in Las Vegas, but not this (usually), so MGM has a big surprise for visitors to Sin City.

The Las Vegas Strip has a 24/7 restaurant that offers all-you-can-eat sushi and grills. It also has vending machines that sell slices of cake, shops that offer everything from chintzy souvenirs to the highest quality designer items.

If something can be eaten, bought or sold, you can find it somewhere – probably many places – you can find it on the Las Vegas Strip. This is generally also true for any vice you may have, even though marijuana is legally sold in Las Vegas, there are no dispensaries on the Strip.

It is of course not difficult to come across almost any legal (or illegal) vice when visiting the Las Vegas Strip. You can also participate in virtually any leisure or entertainment activity you wish. Resorts offer pools, golf, endless live entertainment, plus nightclubs, nightclubs, and really the chance to hear a really loud DJ no matter what time of day.

You can go bowling, play darts, throw an ax (at a target, not another person), play video games, and try state-of-the-art virtual reality all over the Strip. You can also get an intravenous drip or visit an oxygen bar to recover if it all gets a little too much.

Las Vegas, however, was built in a desert, so it’s usually not well stocked with traditional winter activities. Yes, the city has a hockey team, but the NHL’s Golden Knights play in an area. Usually the Strip does not offer outdoor skating, but the Cosmopolitan, which has just been purchased by MGM Resorts International (MGM) – Get MGM Resorts International Reportis about to change that.


The Cosmopolitan brings Winter Wonderland to the Strip

With MGM buying Cosmopolitan, it’s unclear what changes the new owner would make. MGM has started incorporating the resort into its reservation and loyalty programs, but having a new owner could mean some favorites, like the resort’s one-time winter vacation event, won’t be happening this year (or later). never).

That’s not the case, however, as The Cosmopolitan will bring back what it calls a “winter wonderland” complete with ice skating, fire pits, hot cocktails, s’mores and jaw-dropping views. breath.

“Each holiday season, the Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool transforms into a winter wonderland high above the Las Vegas Strip. At the rink, you can skate on 4,200 square feet of real ice, roast s’mores around the corner from the fire and indulge in seasonal food and drink,” the resort shared on its website.

The ice rink, which opens Nov. 15, isn’t the whole experience. Cosmopolitan will also be transforming the Overlook Grill into “Overlook Chill” for the first time this year. The rink-side cafe, “situated under the lights of the Las Vegas skyline and the occasional snow shower,” will offer classic comfort food with a sophisticated twist.

Additionally, The Cosmopolitan will be bringing back another fan-favorite part of the event:

“Debuting in 2021, The Chalet at The Ice Rink is a charming winter experience unlike any other on the Strip. Surround yourself with the spirit of the season on this reimagined mountaintop getaway with festive decor, comfy seating and an oversized toasty fire pit to between jaunts on the ice, snuggle up and enjoy craft cocktails and one-of-a-kind bites while immersing yourself in this cozy scene high above Las Vegas,” added the complex.

Cosmopolitan isn’t the only one with a holiday event

Resorts World will also transform part of its property into a space that will celebrate the holiday season. The new North Strip resort will feature an 85,000 square foot outdoor spectacular it is calling “Enchant on the Strip.” The event will include a Christmas tree display, ice skating and a maze.

“Discover a world of adventure with awesome animated light sculptures and discover our charming village featuring ice skating, live entertainment, interactive games, restaurants, holiday shopping, Santa and Mrs. more. Open November 25 – January 1,” the company shared on Enchant’s website.

Enchant on the Strip will also feature a 100-foot-tall Christmas tree as well as “over-the-top hot chocolate, spike-lit cocktails, the best s’mores ever, hot entrees, specialty sandwiches, homemade donuts home and items you won’t find anywhere else,” the company added.
