ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (April 20, 2015) — Tropicana Atlantic City will be lighting up the Atlantic City Boardwalk with a state-of-the-art choreographed multimedia light and sound show on its façade starting at dusk May 22, 2015.
The center of the multimedia light and sound show will feature a 66-foot high curved LED screen surrounded by five double-sided 24-foot LED screens with moving spot lights reaching deep into the sky. Enhancing the overall experience will be a 17-foot high continuous digital media architectural facade that will seamlessly integrate the high resolution video displays to create an immersive experience. The overall length of the screens spans 360 feet.
Tropicana’s Multimedia Light and Sound Show will play on the boardwalk daily featuring a multitude of high energy themes choreographed to music that are ever-changing, ensuring ample variety for visitors. The daily show is free and will be visible at dusk to guests from as far away as Arkansas & the Boardwalk and the City of Ventnor.
“Tropicana is committed to enhancing the Atlantic City experience for all of our visitors. We will continue to invest in our property and expand our offerings beginning with Tropicana’s Multimedia Light and Sound Show,” said Tony Rodio, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Projects like this and the additional renovations at Tropicana support our ongoing dedication to Atlantic City,” added Rodio.
Tropicana’s new multimedia light and sound show is part of the approved $50 million renovation funded by Tropicana along with the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority. Additional capital improvements include hotel room renovations in the North Tower, renovated casino floor featuring a new bar, an all-new Atlanticare Lifecenter Fitness center on Brighton Avenue and four new retailers in The Quarter and on Pacific and Morris Avenues.
The multimedia light and sound show is being designed and constructed by YESCO, which has successfully engaged in a wide variety of interior and exterior venues for 94 years. The company provides custom, cutting-edge technologies from 260-foot-tall signs with television-quality, programmable LED lights to museum-quality interior exhibits.
