Plans have been unveiled for a massive new development in Las Vegas, including six hotels, 39 casinos and a six-million-square-foot convention centre.
Located off The Strip, the complex would also include indoor and outdoor theme parks, the world's largest ferris wheel at 800-feet tall, a sports arena with a visitor-participation XTREME Sports World, three PGA-quality golf course and a shopping mall with 15 million square feet of retail space.
Eurasia Resorts said construction will begin by the end of next year. "It is our deep hope, sincere belief and high expectation, an expectation bolstered by visitor polls taken in Las Vegas, Cancun and Atlantic City, that the addition of all these missing components to the Las Vegas vacation experience will result in tourists spending two to three extra days here, almost all of them in their existing preferred resort," said Eurasia president John Ray.
"Frankly, we are well aware that the only way we can succeed here is if everyone succeeds. We're all either going to sink or swim together. By drawing additional tourists to Las Vegas annually, Eurasia is going to be a mega-raft floating the Las Vegas tourism industry to its highest levels ever."
