Great news! David Copperfield
, Las Vegas's most renown illusionist, is one of our VIP guests in this season's finale. If he can't "appear" to turn this season around, nobody can.
Behind Phil and Copperfield, there is a construction crane, a fire truck with its crew, an engulfed "bowl" of some sort, and a table-like machine or grid. I'm unsure if this is the task itself or the stage set-up/maintenance for the challenge.
As for the location, the two iconic icons are standing left across from the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Also, the only way we are able to see the MGM neon sign, palm trees, and buildings at that specific angle and a fire truck on the right at the same time is if we were standing on a multi-level PARKING GARAGE. My first hunch is the self-parking garage at the Tropicana Hotel & Casino
on East Tropicana or Monte Carlo Hotel & Casino
's parking garage behind a CVS pharmacy. Sorry, I'm awful at exact locations, but any info is better than no info.
