SkyVue, located directly across from Mandalay Bay located on the Las Vegas Strip, will forever change the landscape of America’s playground. The 500-foot iconic attraction will feature the world’s largest HD LED multimedia displays – each measuring larger than a football field – and 32 climate-controlled glass-walled gondolas.
