Hauptstraße in Las Vegas

Being the largest city in the US state Nevada, Las Vegas is particularly famous for it’s high volume of casinos. This was the crucial factor for the decision to build Las Vegas instead of New York or Hollywood in the American section.

In Las Vegas more than 33,000 LEDs have been integrated, in order to show the lighting effects that can also be seen in reality. This is the only city in the Wunderland that requires its own dedicated computer to control the lights.

The buildings are based on the originals, so that visitors can marvel at the Casino-Hotels “Luxor”, “MGM”, “Treasure Island” (with its Pirate Show and the sinking ship) as well as “New York”, surrounded by a spectacular roller coaster.

The Casino Royal, being in front of Las Vegas, reveals why five electricians have been soldering for over one year. It took six weeks alone to solder the LED’s in this small building. You could easily knit a sock out of the tiny magnet wires used.
