The Fremont Street
Experience is an exciting pedestrian promenade located in the neon center of
Las Vegas, surrounded by ten casino/hotels.
The Fremont Street Experience has created an entirely new commercial and entertainment
venue. This beautifully landscaped area includes a misting system, retail carts,
kiosks, and FREE mall entertainment. Plus, one-of-a-kind Light and Sound Shows
derived from over 2 million lights and 540,000 watts of concert quality sound,
presented each night at dusk.
Since opening in December 1995, the much-anticipated Fremont Street Experience
has "turned up the wattage" in downtown Las Vegas every night with
spectacular computer generated Light and Sound shows. The components of the
Fremont Street Experience Light and Sound show constitute a modern technological
and engineering marvel, the only one of its kind found anywhere in the world.
The space frame towers 90 feet above a four-block section of Fremont Street
and serves as a display system for the shows. The canopy houses 2.1 million
lights, capable of producing millions of color combinations and 550,000 watts
of concert-quality sound. The shows are run by 30 computers and are accompanied
by 218 speakers. In addition, the canopy houses 180 computer-programmed high-intensity
strobe lights, 64 variable color lighting fixtures, and eight robotics mirrors
per block that pan and tilt to reflect light, all of which aid in the miraculous
display of each six minute Light and Sound show presentation.
