Funjet Creates Casino Meal Plan

Reed Travel Features

MILWAUKEE -- Funjet Vacations created a program called Rio Riches to enhance its charter packages to the Rio Suite Hotel & Casino.

Rio Riches features meals daily or credit vouchers at select restaurants at the property.

The promotion provides adults age 21 and over with three meals per day in Rio Suite's Carnival World Buffet or a $4 credit per meal at Toscano's Deli, Beach Cafe, All-American Bar & Grille, Bamboleo, Mama Marie's Cucina or the Village Seafood Buffet.

Rio Riches is available with air-inclusive charter packages from Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Houston, Milwaukee and San Antonio.

The program is valid for three-, four- and seven-night, air-inclusive charter packages and automatically will be included for arrivals through Dec. 24.

Rates for three-night, air-inclusive Rio Riches programs range from $359 per person, double, with departures from San Antonio, to $399 per person, double, with departures from Chicago or Houston.

Rio Suite recently held the grand opening of its most ambitious expansion effort to date: the $200 million Masquerade Village shopping, dining and entertainment complex.

Themed after Mardi Gras in New Orleans, Carnivale in Rio and traditional Italian festivals, Masquerade Village is part of a new, 41-story tower that features 1,031 suites.

A centerpiece of Masquerade Village is an interactive entertainment experience called "Masquerade Show in the Sky."

The $25 million attraction features elaborately dressed dancers, acrobats, musicians and characters performing in 17 different settings, including intricately designed stages and floats that are suspended from the ceiling and parade above the casino floor.

The majority of Masquerade Village's facilities premiered in February during the grand opening, with the remainder set to open by the end of April.

For more information on Rio Riches or other Funjet Las Vegas packages, call (800) 558-3050.

Funjet packages can be accessed through Apollo LeisureShopper, Worldspan Tour Source, Sabre Tourlink and System One Tour Source using the vendor code FUN.
