I saw "dancing" water attractions decades ago in Florida. (Probably goes back centuries) So, the idea is not new, and I do like the Bellagio Fountain. But there's more that you could do with a fountain, for instance spraying a stream at different shaped panels can create completely different spray patterns than just waving streams of spray. Or they could install a slope roof over the sidewalk area, at the end of the show direct spray to the top creating a waterfall effect as it runs off directly in front of the crowd. They could even have Rube Goldberg installations run by the falling sprayed water and highlighted by lasers. Also, instead of the water spray going directly back into the lake have it dump into an elevated pool and at the beginning of the show, have that empty in the middle of the lake creating a big splash and wave outwards. They could build a platform for live band or chamber orchestra to play. Add some real fire flames to the show.

Next. Why not a multi-drone light 3d show nightly? You can create a monster 100-foot Elvis singing and dancing with coordinated drones to music or a King Kong climbing the side of a building. Or anything you can think up. Even two giant figures interacting. And that's a cheap investment compared to most attractions.

And instead of moving sidewalks, have trampoline sidewalks patrons can bounce down to the casino. (Okay just kidding on that one)

Have any other ideas?

The problem with drone shows that most people don't realize is, they don't work that well in a 3D environment. If you're standing in a particular spot, they look as they were intended, but if you're at a 90 degree angle to it, usually you won't see anything.

Another problem is, most drones don't have more than 10 minutes of battery life in them, so either you have to limit the show to 10 minutes at a time, or have multiple sets of drones ready.

Didn't think of that. Perhaps one of the casinos could rent out the top of one of the Vegas mountains and launch it from there? Not sure if that would serve their purpose.
Though they could spell out the casino name at the end of it with lighted drones.

Also if the entire drone formation rotates slow as it creates shapes the image would appear at different angles for a few seconds for everyone.
