The Castle Club is the name of the infamous nightlife club that makes up most of the Challenger Carousel.
It is the brainchild of entrepreneur and casino developer Gianfranco Calderoli, who wanted to create a low-gravity hotspot that would rival the entire city of Las Vegas. It cost approximately 500 million dollars to build.
Its decor and overall theme, based on the giant's castle at the top of the beanstalk in the Jack and the Beanstalk fairytale, is medieval fantasy in nature. Said decor bleeds out into the Challenger Carousel, earning it the nickname "The Castle".
Famous items contained within the club are a harp 3 meters high with a woman's face that sings Mozart, Verdi, and Puccini, and an animatronic goose as tall as a man. The goose used to lay golden eggs as a promotional stunt, but an unfortunate riot that ended in two deaths and countless injuries ensured that feature was disabled.
The Castle Club is a venue that provides both fine dining and theatrical/musical entertainment. Media megacorporation NBN has offices nearby, because anyone who frequents the Castle Club is a celebrity by virtue of walking in the doors, and the world below wants to know about it.
Name Origin Edit
The name may be inspired by Phillip K. Dick's "Man in the High Castle".
