Treasure Island Las Vegas

Treasure Island was opened by Mirage Resorts in 1993 under the direction of Steve Wynn. The initial plans called for a tower addition to The Mirage Casino Resort, but plans later evolved into a completely separate casino resort. Treasure Island originally intended to attract families with whimsical pirate features and icons such as the skull-and-crossbones strip marquee, a large video arcade, and staged pirate battles nightly in “Buccaneer Bay” in front of the casino entrance on the Strip.
