A new holiday spectacular off the Las Vegas Strip debuts Friday night.
Global Winter Wonderland opens in the north lot of the Rio Hotel & Casino. The lantern festival and multicultural theme park spans 15 acres. It features giant illuminated lanterns.
Some tower 50 feet high and span 100 feet showing either Christmas holiday villages or landscapes from around the world.
Some highlights include the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel Tower, and Chichen Itza. It’s meant to give visitors a chance to travel the globe while experiencing the sights, tastes and sounds of various cultures under sparkling lights.
