I'll be driving down to California next Friday (the 14th) and was hoping to ride Desperado since I haven't ridden it in probably 5 or 6 years. The website says it will be operating 12-8 that day, but if it hasn't operated in several months, I'm not sure if I trust the website.
I also plan on riding the New York New York coaster (never done it before), but I think that one is much less of a wild card than Desperado in terms of operations and reliability.
Desperado will be closed, I was told it will be open for the two week holiday and then probably closed until spring break again.
Don't trust the site, and sometimes calling isn't good enough either, they will tell you it will be open and for whatever reason it doesn't.
Getting a ride on Desperado is really a gamble nowadays.
On another note, you have to admit, the rest of the rides in Vegas have an amazing up-time.
Rare is the day you see rides down for mechanical issues here, just their normal maintenance and refurbishments.
