Depiction in the series
In It's About Time, when Twilight Sparkle tries to "disaster-proof" Equestria in preparation for an upcoming catastrophic event, Rainbow Dash mentions that her team "gave the all clear from Fillydelphia to Las Pegasus."
Las Pegasus is first shown on-screen in Viva Las Pegasus. It is a city of bright lights and bustling activity that, like Cloudsdale, is located in the sky. Applejack describes the city as a "wild vacation spot" and "one big party", and when she and Fluttershy are summoned there by the Cutie Map, they are overwhelmed by its noises and large crowds. A wide view of the city shows a fountain plaza, tall buildings, restaurants, and carnival rides.
Most prominently featured in the episode is Gladmane's resort, a luxury hotel filled with arcade games and carnival rides. Managed by the outwardly friendly owner Gladmane, the resort's signature attraction is Ponet Fantastique, a stage show with acrobatic and trained animal acts. Flim and Flam appear as two of the resort's employees, but due to Gladmane's manipulation, the two brothers are turned against one another. Following Applejack and Fluttershy's intervention, Gladmane's duplicitous business practices are exposed, and the resort falls under Flim and Flam's management.
In Friendship University, Twilight and Rarity travel to Las Pegasus to investigate the recently-opened Friendship University, which Flim and Flam use as a front to gain funds for the expansion of their resort.
In My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Issue #25—part 1 of the story arc The Good, the Bad and the Ponies—Twilight mentions on page 2 that Spike is attending a Pony Trek convention in Las Pegasus. Page 25 depicts Spike at said convention standing in a pile of parasprites.
In Gameloft's mobile game, Las Pegasus has been featured on the world overview map from update 1.9 until update 2.9.
In her "About the Author" bio, it is mentioned that Ponyville Mysteries "author" Penumbra Quill once discovered a ghost at the Las Pegasus hotel, the Whinny, a parody of the Wynn Las Vegas.
Las Pegasus is featured on the official map of Equestria. In the original and 2015 versions of the map, its name is spelled as "Los Pegasus", with the Applewood sign placed next to it implying a parallel to Los Angeles, California. In the April 2013 version of the map, its name is spelled as "Las Pegasus".
In the punch-out activity book My Little Pony: Cutie Map Quest, Las Pegasus is depicted in picture and given the description, "Las Pegasus is a glitzy party town with glamorous hotels, amazing shows, and delicious restaurants everywhere you look! It's not everypony's cup of tea, but those who visit always come home with lots of incredible stories."
