Photo TR: Las Vegas 2006

Postby Twister II » Mon Oct 16, 2006 11:36 am

A few weeks ago I went to Las Vegas to help my Mom move out there and unpack and such. Since the moving people didn't decide to show up for a few more days, this is what we did. Spent most of the day on the strip.

The hotel...quite obvious.

Start the day at Mandalay Bay, probably one of my favorite hotels.

Is that Intamin track I see there!?!? AQUA TRAX!

Any hotel that has a sign shaped like a penis is Twister approved.

How many hotels can you see?

This hotel nicely accomodates any suicide jumpers too.

Welcome to Shrek hotel and casino.

This could be like Shrek too, the beautiful princess surrounded by the ugly dragon.

"This way to the dragon!". This coaster has major identity crisis.

Time for me to pop my TOGO cherry.

Here comes the monkey bastards.

*pop**pop**pop*

"Yo me hommie G'z waz up in da hizouse, check out dem rimzzz"

The best this coaster will probably ever look.

"Here we are on the *spiral* escalator ride, the *spiraly* escalator ride..."
vegas23.jpg
An *spiraly* escalator with BOOBS!
vegas24.jpg
"Hello, my name is Mr. White Tiger Man. This weird people from this hotel captured me and won't let me free. HELP!"
vegas25.jpg
We finally made it to Ghetto Dome.
vegas26.jpg
It really wasn't that bad. It gave me a GREAT back adjustment.
vegas30.jpg
Penis penis penis
vegas32.jpg
See this. This is where I waisted my money to go ride 3 boring ass rides at the top. Complete waist of money.

I popped my Premier cherry also, but this was much better.

The best penis coaster in Vegas.

Okay, another favorite hotel, the fountains were AMAZING!

That's all, thanks for reading!

Well, I didnt much like this Trip Report -
But its mostly all my opinions -

I found all the rides on top of the Stratosphere to be very enjoyable. Instead of slamming them, and NOT telling us why! You just said complete waste of money. Why didnt you like them? Instead of slamming them, give us some reasons to back up your claims.

I found all the coasters in Vegas to be Semi-Enjoyable. AGAIN, you slam them and no really tell us WHY you chose not to like them. I personally havent rode all the coasters in Vegas, and i wouldve loved to hear some opinions besides "Penis"

Captions couldve used a little work, but I did like seeing the pictures.

Nice pics. I guess M.E. will always be M.E. Was it really that bad though? I heard Canyon Blaster was suprisingly smooth, I guess being indoors and not "exposed to the elements". Also, why were the rides at the top of the strat boring? They are normal rides mostly I would guess they would be somewhat "enhanced" by the height, especially the space shot.

**edit, I just saw your post ryan after I posted, and I agree**

cool pictures though.

^^Must agree, I really liked the rides at the top of the Stratosphere. And I enjoyed Canyon Blaster, too. Why didn't you like the stratosphere rides?

The new Manhattan Express trains look amazing, but I still don't trust it. I remember, a while ago, it used to be the best coaster in Vegas (the Twist and Dive, when smooth, is terrifying)...but now it just kicks your ass.

Why yooz hatin' on mah Strat rahdz, fool? No, really, what gives? Big Shot...awesome. Xscream...awesome. Insanity...awesome. Even the High Roller wasn't that bad, if you thought really hard and imagined that the track was way up in the sky on its own.

Nice Photo TR. My guess is Speed is the best coaster in Vegas? Or could it be the Dragon at good ol' Peter Piper Pizza? ;)
Yeah, I wish I could go over to Vegas, seems like an awesome place. I hope whatever the Stratosphere does to replace High Roller will be something amazing.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Call me crazy but I actually enjoyed every ride I went on in vegas except for Inverter. I honestly loved Manhattan Express a lot, same with Canyon Blaster. Its really smooth so your back adjustment comment was probably you trying to be cool by ripping on arrow. It didn't work.
I love lamp.

I just didn't like Stratosphere. Big Shot for me was like nothing, fun, but not really worth doing again. Insanity was just, blah. It didn't excite me at all. X-Scream was the better of the 3. Still, maybe it was because I wasn't in front, but it was not thrilling to me.

Canyon Blaster wasn't great for me either. Maybe it was where I was seating, but it was still just rough.

Manhattan, well duh. Just see the video.
