Big things are coming to Downtown Las Vegas near Oasis at Gold Spike, primarily MTV and their TV film crew.
Real World was first broadcast in 1992 and is known for launching the reality TV that we are familiar with today. A handful of young adults agree to be placed as roommates together while being filmed nonstop. The show has been hailed for it’s truthful portrayal of the struggles that young adults face in the world.
Now, Real World is slated to film its 31st season at our very own Gold Spike! Production begins this month and should last about 12 weeks. This is, no doubt, a very big deal for Downtown Las Vegas as it continues to bud and bloom with the help of the Downtown Project, funded by Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos. The popular and long running show could let viewers see the way downtown Vegas is changing, and encourage tourists to visit the area, strengthening our economy and tourism.
Filming at the Gold Spike and Oasis will show viewers our unique and quirky boutique hotel. Perhaps the Real World cast will visit Oasis and take a dip in our pool? They could certainly have fun in our Carnival Bar or in the Living Room as they try their hand at darts or cornhole.
MTV has filmed two other Real World seasons in Las Vegas, it’s 12th season in 2002-2003 at The Palms Resort and Casino. The Palms created six rooms into one giant suite for the filming, and has kept the room pretty much the same. The room has a square footage of 3,000 and still has the “Confessional” room where Real World cast mates once bared their souls. The hotel now rents the suite out for $11,200 a night and Britney Spears once stayed there on New Year’s Eve in 2004.
The second Las Vegas filmed season of The Real World took place at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in 2011, and was the 25th season of The Real World overall. The Hard Rock created and built a custom 4,200 square foot suite for this season. The penthouse suite featured a large living room, four bedrooms for the eight cast members and a built-in bowling alley.
With Real World’s history in Sin City, this season is sure to make a splash! Gold Spike is the first season filmed in Las Vegas that does not take place in a casino. We can only imagine how fun the cast’s penthouse suite will be. We can’t wait to see what drama and adventure unfolds, and maybe one day you too can stay in the giant, vintage Real World penthouse at Gold Spike!
Book a room with Oasis at Gold Spike this month to be near the action of downtown and the filming of MTV’s Real World. You never know where the night could take you.
