The ominous black pyramid of the Luxor Casino-Hotel is the largest in America, at 36 stories tall. The only reason that the Luxor pyramid wasn't built taller than the Great Pyramid of Giza is that it stands opposite the Las Vegas International Airport. At night, a Xenon light shines straight into space from the pyramid's apex, reportedly visible from airplanes above Los Angeles 275 miles away. The Sphinx is two stories taller than the original.
