Resorts World Gets It Up, Signwise

Resorts World Las Vegas has hoisted its sign into place.

Here’s a first look, assuming you haven’t seen it somewhere else, which would be a little rude, frankly.

Stop judging things by their size. It’s not woke.

The Resorts World sign went for subtle rather than ostentatious, so we sent up our drone for a close-up.

It was really just a telephoto lens, but “drone” just sounds sexier.

While the sign looks small from ground level, it’s actually at least two stories tall.

During our recent visit, we had to hit the south side of Resorts World, too, to check out the progress on the casino’s tower-sized video screen.

We dove into the technical specs and learned the Resorts World screen is what experts call “huge-ass.”

Resorts World is expected to open in summer 2021.

Just as soon as they can find a huge-ass remote to work that huge-ass video screen.

Update (7/4/20): Perfect timing! Right after this post went live, Resorts World fired up its 100,000-square-foot screen for some July 4 fireworks. Here’s a look.

    Thanks Scott, the only other place I saw the Resorts World sign was on your Twitter feed. Hopefully, this resort will be the spark to ignite a fire for the North Strip.

    The Stardust originally did something similar. Funny that it’s on the same site. When they finished their high-rise around 1989, they put their sign up on the side of the top of the building. You couldn’t see the bottom third of the letters. I called one of the executives, as they were finishing and told him that. In their case, even from a distance the sign looked like it was mounted too low. Sure enough he called me back laughing and said it sure was. Distance and perspective are not always easy to judge. The higher it gets, the smaller it looks. Works that way with a lot of things1 LOL!!

    Just walked past it the other day. Looks like Wynn 2.0. Still can’t believe they’re going with that name, “Resorts World.” Sounds more like a hotel holding company name than a cool name for a massive new Vegas casino resort. I know they have other locations in their home country of Malaysia, but that name is just so blahh.

    I have been excited for every major casino opening in Las Vegas for decades, this one is just a snoozer, maybe it will be nice, I will reserve judgement. When the Cosmopolitan opened it had hype and great word of mouth from people, when I finally went it was just like another major strip hotel, high limit tables and super expensive restaurants. Holsteins is good, the little pizza place is good, but nothing knocked my socks off like the Mirage or even Venetian did when they opened… I hope this new place is worth more than a 30 minute walk through…
