The Mirage is a 3,044 room Polynesian-themed hotel and casino resort. The resort was built by developer Steve Wynn. It opened on November 22, 1989, and was the first resort that was built with the money of Wall Street through the use of junk bonds. It was built on the site formerly occupied by the Castaways. The Mirage was the most expensive hotel-casino in history, with a construction cost of US $630 million.
The hotel's distinctive gold windows get their color from actual gold dust used in the tinting process. From 1990 through 2003, The Mirage was the venue for the Siegfried & Roy show. The 53-foot-long, 8-foot-tall aquarium behind the registration desk is home to nearly 1000 specimens.The original marquee sign in front of the Mirage is the largest free standing marquee in the world.
