Zion National Park

Ok, so this
isn't REALLY a "roller coaster" update, but Las Vegas is kind of
like one big theme park!
With all the themed hotels, restaurants, and crazy stuff that goes on in
Vegas, a weekend there is a lot like a day in some of
the world's best parks!
So the story
behind this trip is that Elissa's parents came out to visit, and we
decided to make a long weekend out of it.
We spent two days in Vegas and a day in Zion National Park, which is about
two hours away from the strip in Utah.
Here are the results of that trip.....
We stayed once again at the Monte Carlo hotel. It's a nice place,
not too expensive, and we had a nice view of the strip!
Since this is a "roller coaster and theme park" website, here is
an obligatory photo of Manhattan Express!
Here are the cast of characters for this update.
From left to right: Elissa's dad who has a weird condition where he can't
control his tongue, Elissa's mom trying to avoid this
photo, Elissa showing off her gang-ness, and Grant, Elissa's brother, who
pretty much always looks like that.
If the coaster was real, and the fact that no one knows what the hell a
"Surf Buffet" is...maybe this place would stay in business!
How many times has someone asked you "Did you ride that wooden
coaster they have in Vegas???"
This guy had the inside scoop on what is down in god-land. In fact,
he says he communicates with lordy one through that
walkie-talkie he's got attached to his sign.
I gotta be honest here....she doesn't really make me wanna call that
"Mr. Hot Dog" Yes...it really says Mr. Hot Dog.
Vegas can be such a strange place. Here you have really beautiful
...and right down the street you got this place that looks like something
out of a 1970's porno flick!
