Looks like Mandalay Bay is trying to work itself back from that guy shooting out of one of its windows
Mandalay Bay opened 20 years ago, March 2, 1999, on the site of the former Hacienda Hotel & Casino. Circus Circus Enterprises, which originated when Vegas visionary Jay Sarno opened Circus Circus two years after he opened Caesars Palace, purchased the Hacienda and an adjacent plot in 1995 in order to build a tropical-themed megaresort nicknamed Project Paradise.
Mandalay Bay’s identity could change when that happens, but right now, it is the most complete Las Vegas resort. Its original promise of the most diverse entertainment lineup has been delivered many times over through its two decades, and it’s currently home to what may be the most accessible Cirque du Soleil show, Michael Jackson ONE; the 2,000 aquatic animal resident headliners at Shark Reef; concerts on the beach, in the events center and the House of Blues; and colorful nightlife experiences at Light Nightclub, the tower-topping Foundation Room and Skyfall Lounge venues offering incredible Strip views, and gimmicky fun at Minus 5 Ice Bar, Rí Rá Irish Pub and the popular casino lounge now known as Rhythm & Riffs.
Two things from Mandalay that stick out to me: the pool area is legit even though I’ve never actually been in it. From what I remember, there’s walking areas next to the pool that I was on at some point years ago and the multiple private pool areas were pretty cool and the other thing is the smell inside the place. Smelled great after days of just filth at Barbary Coast. Other than that, I don’t remember much about Mandalay. Need to get back out there.
