Treasure Island adds pop-culture icons to its kitschy collection


A walk-through exhibit that immerses audiences in the world of Optimus Prime, Megatron and the never-ending battle of Autobots vs. Decepticons.

Both pop-culture phenomenons are coming to life in Las Vegas soon, when Victory Hill Exhibitions brings new attractions to the 28,000-square-foot space above the CVS store at Treasure Island on the Strip, at the southwest corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road.

An odd fit? Not at all. In recent years, TI has traded in its swashbuckling pirate theme in favor of a one-stop-tourist-shop approach. Its Strip-side lagoon is lined with Starbucks, Gilley’s and Señor Frog’s, so why not drop Captain America into the mix?
