Travel & Leisure Feature Package

1. The Votes are In: Conde Nast Traveler Readers Name Wynn Las Vegas and Encore the Number One Resort in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wynn Las Vegas and Encore have been voted "Best Resort in Las Vegas" in the 26th Annual Readers' Choice Awards issue of Conde Nast Traveler magazine. A record-breaking 79,268 readers participated in the survey, close to double the number of survey takers in 2012. Over a million votes were cast for more than 16,000 properties around the world to determine the world's best hotels, resorts, cities, islands, cruise lines and airlines. Wynn excelled in the Top 10 Hotels in Las Vegas, securing no. 1 in this category.

2. $1.7 Million Heart-Pounding KaPau Plummet To Be The Biggest Thrill in White Water History

BRANSON, Mo., Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- When designers and developers with Silver Dollar City Attractions set out to create a new 2014 ride for White Water, there was one mandate: The new ride must be "The Biggest Thrill in White Water History." The concept began with the idea of a heart-pounding, drop-floor plunge. Now in initial stages of construction, the $1.7 million KaPau Plummet will open in Spring 2014 with two 240-foot slides, each launching riders from a drop-floor into a 70-degree plunge followed by a spiraling loop, promising to far exceed the thrill factor of any water ride ever built at the 13-acre tropically-themed water park located in Branson, Missouri.
