What with the couple of casinos that we previously visited? I thought it was a must that casinos have elegant exteriors as well as interiors for they are designed for high-end customers (assuming that the rich are the only ones who have money to spend/waste on such). But with Wynn, my views were changed.
Wynn was the first casino that we visited which offered free attractions. Definitely, as a Filipina, this was something new and refreshing for me. I have never seen something as grand as this for free in the Philippines. Made me think: What do they get from this? Popularity alone?
Wynn had not one, but two free attractions. The first free attraction is located outside - the Water Fountain Show. For a child-at-heart me, I was so amazed with this and I never expected to witness something like this in Macau, and for free! I was so elated and stunned to see the water dancing rhythmically and in complete harmony with the various types of music played. And I had a hard time comprehending that everything that was going on was just for free!
After Wynn's Water Fountain Show and while I was already recovering from the amazement that I had just experienced, we headed inside for our tour guide told us that there's even a bigger surprise in store for us. On Wynn's lobby, a thick crowd was already forming in a huge circle. What caught my attention was the elegantly designed ceiling featuring a huge round, golden sculpture showcasing the twelve animal signs. Other than that, I did not have any idea on why we where there and what was going to happen because all I could see was an empty center, right below the animal signs-designed ceiling. In a few moments, music was all over the place, and the what seemed to be just a plain circular platform on the floor opened and something huge came out slowly. It was a tree! Simultaneously, the animal signs-designed ceiling opened and an extravagant chandelier slowly went down.
