Caesar’s Palace Moving Statues Come To WassupBlog

Yep, it’s time to visit Las Vegas again, the last time being when I told you about it in my post Las Vegas More Than Just Casinos. In that post I mentioned Caesar’s Palace in passing but before I delve a little more into Caesar’s Palace I’m going to give you a tip about the bar fridge you’ll find in Vegas hotel rooms. I know this to be true in the Bellagio and apparently it’s true for most hotels and it’s something you should know in case you’re ever lucky enough to visit, especially if you’re the type to look through the fridge contents. All the stuff in those fridges sit on a pressure plate and even if you remove a drink and then put it back you’ll will get charged for it as they will assume you consumed the product.

Oh, just in case you’ve heard that the casinos will ply you with drinks as long as you play the machines, I found that to be true but don’t expect to see them all that often. Maybe I was unlucky but in the hour or so that I was there I only got one drink but then a free drink every now and again is better than none at all. Oh, whatever you do, don’t do what I did and forget to tip the waitress.

Like I’ve said before the Hotels in Vegas are big, each have a theme and are full of things to do. Caesar’s Palace is no different. As you can imagine the theme at Caesar’s Palace is all to do with the classical Roman era and apart from gladiators and such you can’t visit that era and not come into contact with some Roman Gods. Caesar’s Palace actually has a show that involves Talking Gods. Although all the wife and I heard about was that Caesar’s Palace had something that involved moving statues, we sure as hell didn’t know those statues involved any deity.

It took us some time to find those remarkable statues too, because like I said those Las Vegas hotels are big. As it happens it was located at one end of the hotel in the Forum Shops and you may want to get there early if you want to get a good view as its pretty popular. I was thinking of you guys while I was there and so I took a video just so you guys wouldn’t miss out. :drunk_tb:

Yeah, yeah, I know I have a typo in the videos introduction :doh_tb: I hope you enjoyed that, expect some photos in one of the upcoming posts.

    Oh yeah, the main thing to always know about Vegas is to have a lot of dollars hanging around, or at least chips or tokens, so you can tip people all the time. I think we covered tipping elsewhere, right?

    That’s a cool video. I’ve been to Vegas twice and will be there in October for a conference, and the one casino I’ve still never visited is Caesar’s Palace. I probably won’t get a chance this time around either, which is probably too bad. But you definitely did seem to have a lot of fun while there.

    1. Sure did Mitch and I only saw a fraction of what Vegas has to offer, which is cool as I can cover those on my next trip.

  2. Impressive, Sire! But I keep expecting to see Superman come flying down from there – must be the the green ‘kryptonite’! ;)

    I’ve relatives going to Vegas in a few weeks, I think I’ll mention the thing about the fridge on a pressure sensitive plate, to them… that’d be a nasty surprise to open the fridge door and get charged just for inspecting the contents.

    1. Yeah, it could be a nasty surprise. I only found out by accident but you would think they would post a warning or something, but then they wouldn’t make as much money.

  3. Cool video! I was in Las Vegas back in January 2010 for an affiliate marketing conference and had a blast! Ironically, I didn’t do much gambling because the $10 table minimums were a little high for a tight-fisted, occasional gambler like myself.

    I didn’t get to see Caesar’s Palace but it’s on my list of places to visit the next time I am in town.

    1. Hi David, there are so many Casinos in Vegas, each having something different to offer and Caesar’s Moving Statues is a great way to kill 15 minutes.

  4. I have never been to Vegas but I will go someday. I am not much of a gambler but I know that there are other things to do for fun.

    My browser seems to be having some trouble viewing the video. I will check it out later.

  5. Really? Just by getting an item in the fridge and returning it back short after, you’ll pay for it even if you didn’t consume it. That’s ridiculous. How much would be the charge? It’s a good thing that you mentioned that in your post. Now I will be very careful when I get to Las Vegas this coming November.

    1. I reckon they would charge whatever the item was worth.

  6. Haha pressure plates, you have got to be kidding! I can see it now – Mission Impossible style, a quick switch of the little jack daniels bottle for a bag of sand.

    1. That won’t be easy Guy, you would have to do it without knocking anything else over :tongue_rolleye_ee:

  7. Cool video, Sire. It’s amazing what they’re doing with robotics these days. Yes, not tipping the waitress is the best way to insure she doesn’t come around again for a long time. As Mitch said above, it’s a cultural thing.

    1. It is pretty amazing Allan. At first I thought they were actors and I was thinking to myself that the Goddess was actually quite doable. :lol_ee: Reckon that’s why they have the light so low :wink_ee:

  8. BTW, every time I’ve visited here recently my anti-virus software sound an alarm, just as the page loads, warning me of a malicious link: Coolbloglinks.com/button.php It does not prevent your page from loading, but dies disable the link, wherever it may be. Just thought you’d want to know.

    1. That actually links to me Cool Blog Links site Allan so there definitely isn’t any need to be worried about malicious links. That button is located in my sidebar and shows people how this blog ranks compared to other members

  9. Nice video.

    I thought what you said about the pressure plates in the hotel fridges was interesting (and a bit insane). Good to know for any future trip to Vegas.

    I’ve never been to Vegas, but I’ve been to Atlantic City quite often and there a free drink is not at all difficult to come by, but the casinos are probably a lot smaller there than they are in Vegas, which might be part of the reason for that. I don’t gamble myself, but I love going just to watch and, like you say, nothing wrong with a free drink.

    1. Actually Petra, the hotel that we stayed in Hollywood had them as well. I only found out by accident when I asked at the service desk about getting milk for coffee and such.

  10. Vegas is a really BIG place and if they don’t do it Big they can get beat out and left behind. I really like the animatronics, it really adds the the atmosphere.

    1. Yeah, it was pretty cool wasn’t it?

  11. I’ve actually only been to Las Vegas once. Even though it is a four hour drive, you would think I would be there all the time. Plus, I LOVE to gamble.

    Yeah, they do give out free drinks, but I was like you and never saw the waitresses. Unlucky or they do it on purpose? I will go to Caesar’s Palace the next time I go, because this isn’t the first time I’ve heard about it.

    Well, great I came across your blog.

    Joel

    1. Hey Joel, I think the trick is to stay in one place long enough for the waitress to find you. You probably just moved around too much. :wink_ee:

  12. Awesome! Makes me wanna go to Las Vegas. I thought it’s all casinos and gambling. :)

    1. Definitely more than just casinos Rob.

  13. Not tipping the waitress or bar personel is not smart anywhere.
    When I was still single and went out a lot, I always made sure to get a good connection with the waitress or bar personel.
    If there are female bartenders then I make sure I order from her. flirt with them, make them interested in you, it is fun and it will save you a lot of money, most times my whisky turned into double or triple whisky’s for the same price.

    Although I doubt it will be that easy in a casino, if they are so cunning to put pressure plates in the fridge and they have the most advanced camera systems. So they probably keep an eye on the waitresses and bar personel as well.

    1. Yeah, that may work for some Danny but it’s a bit hard flirting with the waitresses when you have your wife with you :lol_ee:
