On March 2nd, 1999 the opening of the Four Diamond-rated Mandalay Bay Casino and Hotel Resort took place, changing the Las Vegas Strip skyline forever! This brand new $950 million casino hotel and resort became the newest member of the Vegas’s elite with its lush jungle like interior and outdoor tropical lagoon. The Mandalay’s grand opening featured a parade of over a thousand guests. Jim Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and John Goodman led the pack on Harley-Davidson motorcycles amidst $10 million worth of publicity and advertisements.
The Mandalay Bay is a true tropical oasis, with 3 309 rooms including approximately 500 exotic suites.

The tropical atmosphere continues outside with a lush 11 acre oasis of sand-and-surf beach, three pools and an outdoor island stage.
