The entry bridge is an improvement, though I liked the floating displays no longer used.

Erik was also excited, but he doesn't show it much.

The entry sculpture (for the third time!)
Almost other-worldly effect on this...
The agave sculpture (also previously shown) all lit up.
Looks like a boat full of marbles. Some of these glass spheres are huge and must have been incredibly heavy to lift and blow.
Close up look at the 'marbles.' One looks like a bowl but is just clear glass on top.

There was a video showing how they make these bowls and some of the odd shapes and textures. I am almost positive I had seen a cable special on this once a few years ago, as some techniques I am certain I had seen before. Never worked in glass before, but as cool as all this is, I think I would like it.

After a few practice catchers I finally figured it out. I thought the cross was a nice touch - sort of symbolizing Christ's victory over the Devil. The 'claws' are tied up and rendered powerless just as Christ will bind the devil and cast him into the pit when He returns.
