LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - “Paying homage to the animal kingdom,” Bellagio has unveiled its new “Jungle of Dreams” display at the Conservatory on the Las Vegas Strip.
According to a news release, the new display features 28 animal sculptures and close to 10,000 plans and flowers.
Designers of the display say that “Jungle of Dreams” takes visitors on a “journey through a magical place with moments of discovery and whimsy around every corner, as majestic animals gather to celebrate the coronation of the king of the jungle.”
As part of the attraction, guests will notice that in the background, birds can be heard chirping, crickets are singing, the wind softly blows and a lion roars as a soundtrack featuring the sounds of the jungle adds a “soothing layer” to the display.

Working with the talented Bellagio horticulture team, we took a scene that is captivating, visual and dramatic and brought it to life as only Bellagio can,” said designer Ed Libby. “New elements, including LED screens, along with tropical plants, foliage and flowers from around the world provide a feast for the eyes to all who visit, transporting them to this very special space we created.”
