"Rio All-Suite Casino Resort - Show in the sky." Rio Hotel - Casino Tip by Jerelis

Rio Hotel - Casino, Las Vegas: 28 reviews and 35 photos

  A great Mardi Grass style party above the floor.
by Jerelis

But the main reason why we visited The Rio was the New Masquerade Village Entertainment Complex. This complex has a rather huge casino, which features the oldest attraction in Las Vegas; "Show it the Sky", which is an indoor parade that floats high above the casino floor. It is a bit of a Mardi Gras style party. The music is loud; the artists in the float are entertaining the people by singing and dancing. It's great. Be aware that you're must be on time, because once the show is started everybody is screaming and dancing and you won't be able to get through.

A nice detail is that at the end of every show the dancers at the float will throw plastic necklaces in the crowd. A lot of guests were really begging for the beaded necklases from the cast, because once every while they'll throw a real golden necklace!!!

Address: 3700 West Flamingo Rd
Directions: The Rio is located on Flamingo Ave., across the street from Gold Coast.
