Strip is known for its flashy, over-the-top buildings and attractions. Not only are the exteriors of the elaborate hotels impressive, but the interior spaces don’t disappoint either.
The hot air balloon, which weighs 4,000 pounds, is surrounded by theatrical lighting and music.
One especially eye-catching space is in the Wynn’s gardens. And by “gardens,” I don’t mean anything you’ve ever seen before.
There’s a carousel and hot air balloon made of flowers.
From far away, these blooming structures could pass for the real thing. It isn’t until you take a closer look that you realize those colours, shapes and materials are all flowers.
As visitors walk between the two structures, they go through a canopy of living trees, hanging flower balls and other greenery.
Like you would guess, creating this space was no easy task.
Wynn hired designer Preston Bailey to create the carousel and hot air balloon.
It took Bailey and his team more than 3,500 hours to design the two structures.
The hot air balloon is 20 feet tall, weighing 4,000 pounds, and the carousel is 13 feet tall, 16 feet wide and weighs 6,000 pounds.
