Two tiers of spiral escalators welcome visitors to
Caesar Palace's premier shopping mall
(Las Vegas, U.S.A.)
Even in Las Vegas - the "City That Never Sleeps" where extraordinary is ordinary, the Mitsubishi Spiral Escalator in The Forum Shops is a modern marvel. Seamlessly integrated with its timeless theme of ancient Roman luxury, the spiral escalators flow through the atrium of the premier shopping mall annex to Caesar's Palace in graceful arcs. Long a dream of architects and engineers, the world's first practical spiral escalator was successfully developed by Mitsubishi Electric in 1985*.
Today almost 100 Mitsubishi Electric spiral elevators add a touch of magic to locations around the world, but this impressive helical structure stands out, spanning 3 floors with four elevators in a continuous two-tier configuration. This masterpiece of engineering is ingeniously supported by hidden beams to create the appearance of floating on air, while high-quality maintenance service ensures 24H trouble-free operation in the city that never sleeps.
Flawlessly moving people vertically and emotionally, the Mitsubishi Spiral Escalator is an integral part of the building interior and a wonder that will delight visitors for many years to come.
