MGM Grand Adventures was, for it's brief history, a great diversion from the main-stay of gambling along the strip. LightningBolt, the park's only coaster, was rather bland inside the box (It opened as an enclosed, in-the-dark coaster) but once outside turned into a remarkably fun mine-train style coaster, complete with a push-pull effect over the second half of it's course.
Sadly, the park died off due to a lack of attendance, as well as having a season that battled extreme heat and had little shade, making an August day seem like a totally opressive trip. Most of the attractions are now long gone and rusting in other parts of the USA, but I hope that Lightning Bolt will be ressurected- as it's a great little ride.
I remember visiting this park several times when I was a kid and I always had a blast. While my parents were off spending my college money, my sister and I always went to MGM Grand Adventures and had a great time. There were several rides that kept us entertained. The lightning Bolt, Log Flume, Raft Ride, simulator and stunt show were always fun to experience. Now, where the MGM Grand Adventures use to exist is now tons of high quality restaurants and really take the money out of your wallet.
