LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — An employee of a traveling circus has confirmed the father and son owners hope to be the new owners of Siegfried & Roy’s ‘Jungle Palace’ on Vegas Drive.
Carden International Circus confirmed that George and Brett Cardin sent an offer to purchase the home and it has been accepted. The local realtor representing the property has yet to confirm the offer or the amount of the offer. The home was listed for $3 million.
Built in 1954, the home is located on Vegas Drive near N. Decatur across the street from the Las Vegas Golf Club.
According to a TMZ article, Btertt Carden said he met Siegfried & Roy years ago and when he saw the home was for sale, he and his father put in an offer.
8 News Now has contacted the potential buyers directly to find out what their plans are for the property but have not heard back from the pair at this time.
Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn were headliners for decades in Las Vegas with their Siegfried & Roy magic show. An onstage attack by a tiger named Mantecore during a show at The Mirage on Oct. 3, 2003, severed Horn’s spine and ended his performing career. They produced a show — “Father of the Pride” — and retired in 2010. Horn died of COVID on May 8, 2020. Fishbacher died Jan. 13, 2021, of pancreatic cancer.
