Go To Vegas. Come Back Crispy.
One of the newest hotels in Las Vegas, the Vdara, has its own ideas about how certain guests should be treated at the pool. It turns out that the concave glass tower tends to focus the sunlight at a certain area of the hotel pool.
[A]ccording to the U.K. Daily Mail, the powerful beams of Nevada sunlight reflecting off the glass hotel onto sections of the hotel’s swimming pool area have burned some guests and have melted plastic bags. (Yahoo!)
The hotel employees have started calling the effect the ‘death ray’.
I wonder if anyone has approached the owners of the hotel about changing the name to something that doesn’t sound so much like (Darth) Vader.
