Today, Wynn Las Vegas has earned a reputation for being one of the most luxurious resorts on the Strip. Nothing says luxury like a private lake with expertly designed shows, right?

Lake of Dreams Show

The Lake of Dreams show is a spellbinding multimedia experience created by director Kenny Ortega, lighting designer Patrick Woodroffe, and production designer Michael Curry. The 3-acre Lake of Dreams is illuminated by 5,500 LED lights with a ½ acre screen. When paired with puppetry and an immersive soundtrack, the Lake of Dreams show is born.

Master Puppeteer Michael Curry blends colorful puppetry into the signature lake show that includes an iconic singing frog and sensational visuals designed to make an unforgettable spectacle. 

A world-class team is on staff at Wynn Las Vegas to maintain the show, change props, and keep things moving smoothly from one show to the next.

Wynn’s Lake of Dreams is surrounded by more than 1,500 pine trees and features a 90-foot waterfall. With such an incredible backdrop and production, staring at the Wynn Lake of Dreams will almost make you forget you’re in bustling Las Vegas. 


Shows at the Lake of Dreams Las Vegas happen every half hour beginning at dusk. If you have spare time, stay for more than one show! There are unique storylines and props used to make the shows unique and engaging for guests, even if you’ve seen the show before.
