Where is this giant sign? It's exactly where it should be. There is only one logical place in this country where it could be. No, it's not in New York City. A neon sign of this size needs a lot of space. He also needs to advertise somewhere popular enough that this gigantic signal can pay off. This means a place that attracts millions of visitors annually. New York City catches them.
But where could they put it? Times Square does not have enough space. Also, the company that owns this neon sign has properties on the Big Apple, but there is not enough space for this sign, which is not a sign that you can hang or attach to a building. The only place that meets all the requirements, if you haven't guessed it yet, is "The Strip" in Las Vegas. This location is ideal because the money generated here far surpasses any income New York can produce, and once you see the price, you'll know why Las Vegas received the approval. The most obvious reason, the size of this neon sign, points to Las Vegas.
This neon sign was the idea of the Hilton Hotel Corporation. The company that was supposed to build the original sign planned to build a 364-foot-high sign on the site when they started in 1994. However, this neon sign was virtually destroyed during construction by a windstorm in July of that year. Luckily, however, the undamaged steel foundation and structure could be used when the new sign's base was laid in 1996. It has become the largest and tallest freestanding sign in the world. Las Vegas, known as The City of Lights, received the brightest neon sign in the world.
What makes this neon sign the brightest star in town? It is powered by intermittent reactors and neon transformers. The lights are supplied by more than 1,500 flashing signal reactors. The total area of the board is over 70,000 square feet. This neon is capable of producing up to 64 shades of variable colors. The hotel's name, Hilton, is done in rebox style letters 164 feet wide and 29 feet tall and uses 9,310 feet of lighting. The sign is double-sided and features four bulbs deep bulges all the way.
The sign features a "Star Trek: The Experience" logo and a programmable reading sign. This double-sided reading board is 40 feet high and 80 feet wide and is filled with 32,000 color lamps per side. The Star-Trek part of the sign took 6,944 linear feet of neon to illuminate. The sign's flashing ballasts are used to turn colors on and off, move light across the screen, and control the sign's flashing activities efficiently and effectively. Intermittent signaling reactors are high voltage and 120 volts, allowing reliable shutdown at low temperatures. They support up to three lamps and have preheated cathodes to improve lamp performance. Reactors are good for about 20,000 hours. The sign proved to be very popular with visitors. There is another title that could undoubtedly be applied to this sign, for at a price of approximately $ 9 million it could easily be the most expensive neon sign in the world.
Interestingly, Saginaw, Michigan claims to have the largest neon sign in the state. It is 35 altura tall and 50 # in length and is considered the largest figurative sign in the whole country. A figurative sign is based on human or animal figures.
Neon signs are things we see every day. From our largest cities to the smallest, they display their colorful glow day and night in all kinds of weather. Although their primary function is to advertise, they add warm lights to illuminate many dark areas. They add color to monotonous buildings.
The US has its Times Square and Las Vegas, both displaying impressive neon signs. London has its Piccadilly Circus, a well known sign. Some of the other places with sparkling centerpieces are Tokyo's Ginza and Shibuya, Osaka's Do Ton Bun, Shanghai's Nanjinj Road (the world's largest shopping street) and Bankok's Soi Cowboy neighborhood, named after a American who opened a go-go bar there In the 1970s. He made the list because of his so-called nasty weirdness, which showed pink elephants marching through the pink neon streets.
Neon signs are found all over the world. Although they proclaim their messages in hundreds of languages, their purposes and benefits are the same as here.
