The Luxor attractions were great for their time! My dad and I rode the simulator (with the awesome standup preshow!) while my mom and little brother did the Nile boat cruise.

I always wanted to get to Luxor to try out Reboot: The Ride when it ran there...

that was at the old Las Vegas Hilton.

even tho a different hotel now, last time I was out there, you could still clearly see the outline of insignia on the outside of the building.

and this is still my desktop on my home computer (from Quark's bar/entrance) :)

Agreed, Speed was such a fun little coaster. And if I remember correctly, they ran two cycles for each ride purchased. It's a shame that another casino or park didn't buy it from the Sahara. I would've loved to see it wedged into the Adventuredome somehow.

I didn't want to get graphic, but for me, I did my business as usual the next morning and stood up to find the water had turned blue. Otherwise I felt totally fine.

On another note, Speed — The Ride is still the best coaster we've ever had here. A group of us made sure to get our last rides right before it closed.

New member here! I remember the boat ride at Luxor. Never did get to go on it, but I wanted to. Also loved Speed the Ride. And anyone remember the High Roller that used to be atop Stratosphere (that many people still mistakenly think is still there)?

Of current attractions, while it's more of a tour, I did love Zac Braff's Haunted Museum. Even if not a believer (I'm personally not), the collection of artifacts are amazing!

And while I obviously had low expectations, Fear: The Walking Dead attraction downtown was actually better than I thought. Too much time is spent "scanning", and the maze portion is woefully short, but the shooting portion is pretty fun. Imagine Iron Reef with desert zombies, and you get the idea. Again, go in with low expectations (and try to find a discount... it wouldn't be worth full price).

was looking through some old photos and found a bunch of Desperado. back when it was smooth. or, at least i thought it was. looking back over 20 years, was i just able to take it, or was it smooth? anyway, here's some pics, probably from the first or second year of operation. the second hotel tower wasn't built yet at Buffalo Bills. oh, i also came across a few onride photos as well. too funny, i used to take an SLR camera on ride and no one cared. how times have changed, and for good reason.
