Guests at the Bellagio can buy a chance to control the resort's famed dancing fountains – for $250,000 a pop.
High rollers can pay to press a shiny red button that controls the fountains and makes them dance to the customer's favorite tunes. The deal is offered at Hyde Bellagio, a swank nightclub with a prime view of the waterworks.
After the fountains have been shut down for the night, a butler delivers the guest a gold box with a menu of fountain songs. Inside the box is a single red button. One push sets off 4,700 lights and 1,200 fountains, which sway to the song of the person's choosing.
The package comes with a 30-liter bottle of Ace of Spades champagne, the equivalent of 40 regular-sized champagne bottles.
The deal has been available for three months, but nobody has bought it yet, Bellagio officials said.
Is $250,000 worth the press of a powerful button?
Here’s a look at what else $250,000 can buy in Las Vegas:
6.5 electric cars
The average price of a new Chevy Volt is $39,000. It’s no Rolls Royce, but the Volt would do just fine zipping from Fremont Street to Mandalay Bay.
In March, the average price of a single-family home in the valley was $161,000.
5,319 pairs of shoes
The Vans checkerboard slip-on shoes made famous by Jeff Spicoli in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” are a popular pick at Fashion Show Mall. They sell for $47 a pair.
Burgers from Five Guys start at $4.99 and include toppings such as grilled onions and mushrooms, jalapeno peppers and A-1 sauce. A quarter of a million dollars buys a lot of meat.
416 glasses of rare cognac
Served at the new Cognac Lounge at Caesars Palace, a 1-ounce glass of “Perfection” – one of the world’s oldest unblended cognacs – costs $600. The vintage blend comes from French Colombard grapes and has been aged 140 years.
