Held for free in the Forum Shops at Caesars, it displays a tale of a feud between the Greek gods.

Hot fire erupts, water spews and a large dragon also appears. Onlookers that anticipate seeing the show for the first time are always advised to grab a spot early since the area is quickly filled with both new and returning visitors.
