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

Wynn Las Vegas has unveiled two floral installations conceptualized by acclaimed event designer, Preston Bailey. A visually stunning hot air balloon and animated carousel will indefinitely reside in the atrium at Wynn Las Vegas.

“All of us in the design and development area of our resorts are always trying to think of new things for the hotel. We love to have this place constantly changing; it makes it much more interesting for all of our guests who come frequently,” says Steve Wynn, chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts.

Constructed with a core made of fiber-reinforced plastic, the sculptures are adorned with more than 110,000 flowers, artistically arranged in a vibrant color palette. The hot air balloon stands 20 feet tall and weighs 4,000 pounds, while the carousel is 13 feet tall, 16 feet wide and weighs 6,000 pounds. Both installations feature theatrical lighting and are accompanied by festive music. In total, more than 3,500 hours went into completing the installations.
