A fun attraction. This is an attraction that is worth your time if in the area, but not worth going out of your way. The are several overhead floats included in the parade which are fun as well as a number of dancers performing on the floor level.
Every day is Mardi Gras at this shopping arcade and attraction located inside the Rio hotel..
Scattered around the perimeter of the New Orleans-style Masquerade Village area, shoppers can browse through many specialty stores and eateries. It's a bustling, upbeat place with carnival atmosphere and a parade of costumed and masked dancers. During the daily parades, beads are thrown to the crowds in the true spirit of Mardi Gras. Several restaurants will appease the famished, and a stop at the Wine Cellar for a tasting is a real treat for adults.
Masquerade in the Sky. Just returned Sunday. HAD to go Rio - was there 5 years ago - had a blast. UGH - downhill! The performers are VERY stingy with the beads. This is petty, but I got beads 5 years ago; gave them to my daughter - she wanted more; the only reason I got some this time was because an older lady overheard me say to hubby "I'll never get any!"; took pity on me; gave me one of hers. We were there 3 times and no matter how much I hollered/waved, they just wouldn't throw me any! I mustn't have looked "right" :) Even the Chippendale dancers were very "snooty" - noticed they only threw them to the young "hot" girls -note to Rio - it's us "older ladies" who will probably spend more money in your casino - keep us happy and throw a few beads!
parade in the sky. This attraction has gone downhill in the last year.They now use canned music and only a fraction of the performers.The floats that were filled with dancers are now mostly empty.
EXCITEMENT. I THINK THE MASQUERADE PARADE IN THE SKY IS THE MOST EXCITING SHOW THAT THE WHOLE FAMILY CAN ENJOY AND BE A PART OF MY 2 LITTLE GIRLS JUST LOVE IT .THEY HAVE DIFFERENT THEMES OF THE SHOW THE COSTUMES ARE AMAZING ALL THE MANY COLORS IN LIGHTS .THE AUDIENCE JUST GETS SO ENERGIZED AND ALIVE DURING THE SHOW ITS WONDERFUL ESPECIALLY WHEN DANCERS THROW THE BEADS OUT IN TO THE AUDIENCE AND THE BEST PART ITS FREE!!
Since a new company took over the Show in the Sky, the "show" is but a shell of it's former self.
It used to be a "must see", not anymore. It's
been stripped down so much, they should just
Fun for all!.
Great free entertainment for free! Lots of fun and something you won't see anywher else! Just watch out when they start throwing beads! I saw a senior citizen jump in front of a little boy just to grab some beads. It was pathetic! It's amazing to watch grown men and women make fools of themselves over some plastic beads!
For $9.95 you can actually ride in one of the floats!!! My husband and I had a great time and plan to take our kids on it when we visit Las Vegas as a family. One of the most unique things you can do in Las Vegas for under $10!
No as Good as it sounds. The dancers were not good the music wasnt that much better and the props weren't that spectacular either. It was a waste of time to drive off the strip to see it.
Great show!. I loved the parade in the sky when I was in Vegas so much that I decided to ride one of the floats. It was great fun. When I went to inquire about it, they actually let me on the float for free! I got scads of Mardi Gras beads and had a fabulous time.
It was SO-SO. I had been told by many people that this was one of the THINGS TO DO. Boy were they wrong, I mean it is neat to see the floats in the air but I think it could use a little more pazazz. Thank goodness it was free or I would have been complaining.
