Has anyone heard anything about the rumored new family coaster? I wonder if it's still a possibility since it's been ages since it's been brought up.

^I didn't even realize that might not be a thing. I guess the announcement (or however we found out about it) was pretty unofficial/low-key, though. I'd also like to hear an updated status.

Wow, doing some digging, to my surprise the coaster was 'discovered' over a year ago, and there was indeed no official announcement. Do we think it was cancelled, or is it just taking its sweet time to appear?

Funny this should come up today because Chance posted this 6 hours ago on Facebook and I feel like it looks an awful lot like the Adventuredome rendering... possibly right around the section where the train is in this screengrab from the Chance video. I'm terrible at this kind of stuff though. :lol:

^Ha, yeah, I wanted to respond to the post above mine when I first saw it, but it wasn't until today that something re-reminded me to bump the thread. Would be cool if that does end up at Adventuredome.

To celebrate being finally done with my radiation treatments, my partner decided we needed a long weekend trip to have some fun. Just booked a trip to Vegas nonstop from Tampa to Vegas for 35 bucks on Frontier the first week of May. ( 5 hours on a plane, ugh) Got stupid cheap rooms at, gulp, Circus Circus. ($22) I know , I know, we will wear full body condoms to get into bed. We also got BOGO on AdventureDome all day passes. SO this trip is going to be a cheapy one, just finally, a get away. We're not gamblers, (then why in the heck go? Never been, that's why) So we are looking for any advice on things to do or not to bother with. Most likely wont bother with the torture device at NY,NY at 15 bucks a pop unless we find a deal. The cheaper the better. Thanks for any advice.

Vegas has lots of great entertainment options and there are many ways to save on tickets. There are half-price ticket booths similar to TKTS in NYC that sell discounted tickets the day of the show. There are also deals listed on Travelzoo that you can purchase prior to coming to Vegas. If you've never been to Vegas, I'd recommend checking out one of the Cirque Du Soleil shows as they are all pretty amazing. There are also a lot of food and entertainment deals on Groupon, so that's worth a look as well. If you want a really nice dinner, Circus Circus has one of the better steakhouses in town. I know that seems weird, but it is actually very good and always ranks high on the Best of Las Vegas voting.

be advised, Circus Circus is going to charge you resort fee. . so that cheapie room, is gonna end up being more than you expect.

when you check in, ask for the updated tower over the main casino.. they upgraded those rooms a few years back, and although it won't help with the quality of the crowd staying there (we were surrounded by babies on all sides), the updated rooms are rather nice.

when you check in, CC front desk will give you a coupon book (they were still doing so as of our last visit), and included in that book, is a free bottle of wine at the steakhouse there.

if you are a meat eater at all? the Steakhouse at Circus Circus is among the best in town, and our favorite. Even when we're not staying there (and we hardly ever do), we always make a trip there for the Steakhouse. it's a world unto itself, and nothing like the casino / hotel you have to walk thru to get to it. Very classy place with excellent food.


also while at Circus Circus, check out the free circus acts (one level up over the casino). . yeah, there will be a lot of children there, but it's awesome free entertainment that (I think) runs once an hour.

Congrats on finishing your treatments! What a great reason to celebrate!

We flew 5 hours to Vegas on Frontier last year. You'll be fine... just wear a sweatshirt/hoodie on the plane and sit on it because those seats really start to suck by hour 3-4 otherwise (and I mean... we're in our 20's, or at least we were when we did this last year) :( .

Great call on Frontier. Their prices from the East coast to Vegas are unreal. Be careful of those personal item size restrictions but for a weekend trip you shouldn't have a problem.

I do have a bit of bad news (you may already know this)... your hotel is not $22 a night. Your hotel is $58.28 per night. Sorry about that but welcome to Las Vegas.

Anyway, I do have some tips since you're looking to do things on the cheap.

Renting a car? Great. Can I recommend the Grand Canyon? Hoover dam maybe?

Not renting a car? You don't really need one if you're not leaving Vegas but watch the airport scam because it happens 99% of the time. The best thing to do is to take an Uber not a cab. If you do take a cab be prepared to tell the driver exactly how you want to be taken to Circus Circus. Don't get tunneled and don't let them take you up the strip unless you want to do that for the experience. This is a huge problem in Vegas. Almost every cab will try to long haul you unless you specifically tell them to take Swenson / Paradise. It's illegal. They don't care. If this happens both ways you can get screwed out of like 40 bucks plus (and it WILL if you let it happen).

Another thing I learned about Vegas is that you should pretty much never pay the advertised price for anything. There's a HUGE discount for almost every single Vegas attraction online as well as some great combo tickets. Look into those and see what works best for you. If you want to do something that you don't have a discount plan for just whip out your phone when you walk up to it and hop on Google. 99% of the time there's a great deal and they offer mobile ticketing. The High Roller immediately comes to mind but this works for basically everything on the strip.

echoing your congrats on the treatments (meant to say that to him as well!).

and LOL on the room cost. . . I flagged that for him too :)

ETA: we never rent a car in Vegas. To get from Airport to Hotel (and back), we do the shuttle van, that you can purchase tix for (several options out by curbside near baggage claim). .if you book drop/return, it can be less than $40, and it's a locked rate.. no matter how they take you (often up the strip to stop at multiple hotels). . but they will drop you off right at front desk (Circus Circus front desk is way at the back of the complex, so a long haul if you go in the front doors). and pick you up from there.

so we prefer the shuttle..we just buy the tickets, then don't worry (you call them day before your flight to confirm the pickup the next day).

Oh. PS: The Adventuredome is closed for maintenance Monday April 30th through Thursday May 3rd. Hopefully you can work around that.
