    Kinda surprised there isn't a Vegas thread here! To catch up a bit on recent "old" news:

    • Desperado and all attractions left at Buffalo Bills is SBNO, despite whatever the website says
    • Fear The Walking Dead: Survival attraction in downtown closed
    • Based on what I've heard on twitter, El Loco is still closed
    • Rumors have it all the Cirque shows are not doing well financially, are are in danger of being closed in the future (despite a new show, RUN, being developed)
    And more recent news: Speed: The Ride at the Sahara is confirmed to NOT return by it's owners



    On better news:
    • Eiffel Tower has a new light show (well, new since March)
    • Tim Burton will have an exhibit at the Neon Muesum from Oct 2019-Feb 2020
    • Zak Bagans's Haunted Museum is still great :grin:
    Let's keep this up with any other Vegas developments! Especially if El Loco opens back up (or Desperado, but I feel that's never going to return)

    KA is my favorite cirque show, it's interesting to hear that they aren't doing well

    Most of the coasters in Vegas aren't worth too much

    Not surprising. The Primm Valley resorts have been declining lately. The outlet mall foreclosed last year and almost every store there is closed.

    Only 35 stores remain, which include the restaurants on the inside and outside. Went in about one year ago. Was a ghost town. Vegas has two outlets now. No reason to bus people to the state line for the same deals you can get in Vegas.

    never liked the Desperado roller coaster. Rode it when it was new, but got rougher each time.

    Speed the ride? That was closed a long time ago, but doesn't look like it will be rebuilt down the strip. Never got to ride it.

    LOVE is still an amazing show; and it's unfortunate to hear of their performance declining.

    I went to Vegas last June for HRPC; and unfortunately I can understand a bit to the decline in Vegas entertainment.

    In shocking news, Desperado is running again.

    Is Desperado worth stopping for? I’ll be driving past it on the way to Vegas and I have it a miss last time.

    Really!? Just got a comment on one of my videos saying it’s closed. Interesting for sure! Would love to ride it. Probably bumpy as hell.

    A credit is a credit but probably not worth it.

    Aww, man. I’m just going to miss that. My wife would have loved it.

    Have tickets to the Tim Burton exhibit on the 17th, a couple days after it opens. I am totally jazzed for it.
