Of all those marble looking statues littered around Caesars Palace Forum Shops, did you know there are actually some that come to life thanks to the miracle of animatronics. Its true, every hour on the hour two statue shows come to life. They are called the Fall of Atlantis and the Festival Fountain shows.
The Fall of Atlantis Show takes place over a large aquarium complete with tropical fish and uses fire and shooting water to compliment the special effects of this free show. The Festival Fountain show is a little more docile and features lasers beamed on to a domed ceiling. The great thing about these shows is they are free.
Kids especially will like the large 50,000 gallon aquarium that is behind the Fall of Atlantis Fountain that contains more than 100 species of ocean critters.
