Hey,
If you're a fan of thrill rides head to the Stratosphere & do the (forgot the name) ride that shoots you up & drops you down (TOT style) at the top. It's great at night, best view in town.

I love thrill rides, but I would die on that ride. I don't like heights...creeps me out just being inside up that high, much less on some thing flinging you through the air. I suppose it's a fun way to die :).

I went on that ride that was previously mentioned years ago. I don't think I could stomach that. If you are brave, I agree, go for it.

It is called, THE BIG SHOT! I made Kevin ride the "Big Shot" in 1999 which the Stratosphere states,

"The Big Shot thrill ride catapults 16 riders from the 921-foot high platform up the Tower's mast to a height of 1,081 feet. :scared1: Traveling at 45 miles per hour, riders experience 4G's as they reach the very top, and feel negative G's on the way down." Once we got off the ride, and were able to change Kevin's underwear, he threatened me with an inch of my life.

Since then they have added even more crazy rides that I will never, ever, ever go on. Oh, and Kevin will never, ever go back into the Stratosphere tower. :laughing:

Not entirely sure, but I think the attractions may be currently closed, they are taking out the roller coaster.

Let you know, I leave the 4th!

Just snagged awsome seats for "O". Couldn't figure out why I got such great seats on such short notice, then I noticed I'm going on Superbowl Sunday!

LOL

For once being a gay guy with absolutly no interist in Football pays off!

Howdy ya'll! Couple of boys here taking a break from WDW and heading to vegas in '07(first time). Does anyone know of any good forums for vegas like the disboards? Any must do's? (There will be us 2 boys, and our 2 female friends) A happening gay hangout, or something for the 4 of us... any suggestions?

www.gaylasvegas.com has listings of clubs and other things.

You will want to go "Downtown" one evening, that is the old section of vegas and they have a pretty cool light show at night.

If you want to see a great show, check out Hairsparay at the Luxor, excellent, Harvy Firestein is in the lead role of Edna.

Take advantage of the bus system, "the duce". For $2.00 a trip, or $5.00 for a 24 hour pass it runs up and down the strip all the way to downtown 24 hours a day. Dont let the size of the strip fool you, a resort that looks within walking distance may actually be 2 miles away, and walking can wear you out!

New York, New York has a pretty decent roller coaster, but a little on the expensive side.

Lots of hotels have free shows that you may want to take advantage of. The Mirage has the volcano, Treasure Island has a pirate show, there is a foutain show, light shows, and lots of free lounge acts. You can do quite a bit for free out there if you do your homework.

If you plan on returning to Vegas anytime in the future get a casino card for the slot machines. It keeps track of how much money you put in a machine, and if you spend enough the casino will send you offers in the mail for reduced rates in the future.

If you have any other questions dont hesitate to ask!

And for God's sake, leave room for those 99 cent shrimp cocktails!

Make sure you check out Krave, a relatively new gay club on the strip attached to Aladdin (soon to be the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino). Lots of great restaurants there: Delmonico at the Venetian, Emeril's New Orleans Fish House at MGM, Chef Michael Jordan's restaurant Rosemary's (off the strip), Hank's at Green Valley Ranch (Chef Sean Roe is the Exec Chef there and is amazing), and for sushi Nobu at the Hard Rock.
