“Men flocked to see it and ascended it as it was a novelty and of unique dimensions. It was the toy of the exhibition. So long as we are children we are attracted by toys, and the tower was a good demonstration of the fact that we are all children attracted by trinkets. That may be claimed to be the purpose served by the Eiffel Tower.”— Mahatma Gandhi

Eiffel Tower Experience Las Vegas History
The original Eiffel Tower was constructed between 1887 and 1889 in Paris, France and stands a towering 1,063 feet tall. Originally constructed for the 1889 World’s Fair, it’s fair to say that when you think of Paris, you think of the Eiffel Tower. Today, the Eiffel Tower can proudly boast that it’s the most visited paid monument in the entire world.
But what if you can’t make it to Paris? Then you definitely should visit Las Vegas where you can see a half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas, which stands 541 feet in height. Construction on the Eiffel Tower Experience began in 1997 and was completed in 1999. The original plans were to make the Eiffel Tower Experience the same height as the original Eiffel Tower. But because of its proximity to McCarran Airport and apprehension about the height of the tower possibly affecting flight paths, the tower’s size had to be reduced.
Made from 5000 tons of steel, the Eiffel Tower Experience is the world’s tallest replica of the original. When you ride up the elevator, you’ll be able to see the rivets and iron that is like the original Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower Experience is also one of the must see attractions in Las Vegas as well as being one of the major landmarks on the Las Vegas Strip.
