Area15 to add Boeing 747 to Las Vegas expansion

Regular long-haul travellers to Las Vegas may miss the old ‘Queen of the Skies’ Boeing 747, but soon they will be able to visit one when they arrive.

The seemingly ever-expanding Area15 will become the new home of a decommissioned Boeing 747, which will be repurposed to host events.

It is part of the latest plans at the site, which is adding 20 acres of land to the north.

Universal Studios have already confirmed they will be setting up a permanent horror attraction there, which has been inspired by the Halloween Horror Nights in their Orlando park. It will occupy 110,000 square feet in a stand-alone building.

There is also going to be around 85,000 square feet that will house pop-ups and ‘outdoor experiences.’

“Area15 curates a constellation of world-class experiences and our partnership with an internationally renowned entertainment company such as Universal marks a significant milestone in our evolution,” Area15 CEO Winston Fisher said.

“Consumers continue to gravitate toward artful new forms of entertainment providing immersive experiences, authentic connections and real emotions.”

“We are ready to dive into this substantial expansion and find more partnerships that will have a lasting impact on the Area15 District and the city of Las Vegas.”
