The Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas is not getting rid of its ever popular fountains, or at least not right now.
A recent report in The Las Vegas Review Journal stated that:
“I can confirm that preliminary discussions have been held among top MGM Resorts execs for the 22 million-gallon, 8.5-acre lagoon site of The Bellagio Fountains to be drained and replaced with a boutique shopping and restaurant promenade.
“It’s incredibly valuable real estate that earns the hotel nothing. It has had a long run as a tourist attraction, but now it’s time to make it a revenue earner. Steve’s new water park will become the new attraction on the Strip. MGM wanted something entirely new for Bellagio.”
But MGM has responded a counter opinion.
“We have no plans or intention to eliminate the iconic Bellagio Fountains, one of the most identifiable tourism landmarks in the world.”
