Facts

  • The guest rooms in the pyramid only offer showers, not bathtubs. Plumbing for tubs wasn't possible because of the structure's unique form.
  • To reach their guest rooms in the pyramid, guests must use an inclinator, a special elevator that rises at a 39 degree angle.
  • A "sky beam" - reportedly the most powerful light in the world - shoots up from the pyramid's peak at night. It can be seen from an airplane on a clear night from 250 miles away, and it attracts a flurry of bats who feed on the insects drawn to it.
  • The "sky beam" is so powerful that austronauts on Space Shuttle could see it; it is so bright that 10 miles above it one can use its light to read a newspaper.
  • At 29 million cubic feet, the atrium inside the pyramid is the largest in the world.
