Eiffel Tower and High Roller Illuminate in Solidarity During Vegas Strip Shutdown

March 27, 2020 - 1:38 pm

The Las Vegas Strip remains quiet during the current shutdown of non-essential businesses in Nevada, but two Caesars Entertainment attractions are shining bright in a display of optimism and gratitude. The half-size Eiffel Tower replica at Paris Las Vegas is projecting a nightly 10-minute twinkling light show at 8 p.m. to symbolize hope and honor healthcare workers on the frontlines against the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The landmark also joins the High Roller observation wheel at The LINQ in displaying red, white and blue colors as a patriotic sign of American pride and unity during the crisis. Both attractions are illuminated at dusk each night. Casinos and resorts remain closed along with other non-essential businesses in the state during a minimum 30-day shutdown, complying with an order from Governor Sisolak to "flatten the curve" and limit the COVID-19 outbreak. Neither the EIffel Tower replica or High Roller wheel are admitting guests during this period. Video of the EIffel Tower light show was posted to the Paris Las Vegas twitter account.
