Decompression Zone at the Wynn Resort

A custom-designed hot air balloon and carousel  at Wynn Las Vegas

Over 110,000 flowers adorn the hot air balloon and carousel that were installed in the Wynn atrium last December. I’m not sure where I  read about theses sculptures, but seeing them ended up on my list of things to do when we went to Las Vegas this spring. I had never heard the term “decompression zone” until I read this press release.

The effect is probably very different if you approach it from the main entrance as intended.  We entered the casino from the Self Parking garage. Since I couldn’t find the exact location of the atrium on any map, I wandered around until I found them. Luckily they are almost on the casino floor.
