Circus Circus started in 1948, right after the very first Flamingo. With respect to Vegas's themed resorts, Circus Circus is probably the first one. And in 1990 and 1993, Circus Circus Enterprises (now Mandalay Resort Group octopus) built the themed King Authur Excalibur and Egyptic Luxor, respectively.
Circus-Circus Las Vegas is low-key in comparison to other mega-resorts built in the 1990s. But as a Las Vegas oldie, its circus theme is impeccable. This lighting fixture, designed with cluster of light-emitting balls, is very well done. Geometric beauty comes to life.
