|Extra Note:||"the expansion is "probably more European than authentic to Caesar," Dougall says. It fast-forwards history a few years to the 16th and 17th centuries. But the idea was "to change atmosphere every 300 feet or so," and provide a "beginning, a middle and a finale" as visitors explore the mall" from Las Vegas Review Journal. August 28, 1997.
"The new area includes an entertainment attraction, Atlantis, which will feature interaction by human and animatronic figures in a show replete with fire and water special effects. The aquarium is part of the Atlantis feature. Shoppers at FAO Schwarz's largest toy store, which also includes high-tech animatronic and interactive features, will be greeted at the entrance by a 46-foot animated Trojan Horse - a combination of the company's trademark rocking horse and Forum's ancient Greco-Roman theme."
