Found two videos of the gondalas in action at Wynn Palace. Both of these videos are months old at this point, but finding daily photo updates on this place isn't easy. Anyway here is a link, you'll see the videos in the 2nd and 3rd rows. In one of the videos you'll have to squint a bit, but you'll see all of them making the tour.

Been fetishing this clip for months. Makes me want to bring skis.

What about pressed ham on glass?

Ahahahah. The giant-ass "faberge egg gold" colored column.... ROFL.

That thing looks like it escaped from the Bally's Grand Bazaar.

For some reason I was thinking of Venetian-esque gondolas except they'd be serenading you with oontz oontz music...

"From the street to the hotel" - I don't get the point, is the entrance from the street that long? (instead of using people movers?) It's a cool concept but I would think it would only slow down entrance to the casino as well as be a choke point for crowds...

Although it's not like the people mover entrance to Caesers has ever been running when I was there...

Not sure the exact reason, but could they be connected to the Rapid Station under construction?

If the concept art is to go by, there's a station on the sidewalk. They go up, turn a corner at the driveway on the Big Golden Pole, and then head into the casino.

It's just a different take on the moving ramp into the casino. I'm curious how much traffic that gets, since the hotel still does have a driveway. Are sidewalk crawls common in Cotai?

Dang - that will be quite the stunning ride when the fountains fire up! I'm assuming whatever music goes with the fountain show will be piped into the cabins.

Definitely not the Gondola in the water , ala Venetian, that I had pictured. The novelty will wear off quickly. Will the Chinese gamblers have the patience needed for this ride?

I wonder who in the boardroom thought this was a great idea long term? Definitely not one of Steve's grandest ideas. This will go into the abyss like the Original Switch restaurant in the Encore LV.
