The lights are off at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel.

The Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino's replica of the Eiffel Tower will go dark for a second night as a tribute to victims of terrorist attacks in France.

The resort said on its Facebook page Saturday that the lights on its Eiffel Tower would be dimmed.

The hotel tower went dark Friday night after news of the deadly attacks in Paris spread.

Other tributes on the Las Vegas Strip included one on the High Roller, billed as the world's tallest observation wheel.

The 550-foot-tall attraction was lit up in the colors of France's flag — red, white and blue.

Authorities say extremists carried out coordinated gun-and-suicide bombing attacks across Paris on Friday that left 129 people dead and more than 350 injured.
