Very, very good trip report.
Loved that you went to Warner Brother's... I've heard of that, been interested, but I just might have to do it next time.
Glad you had a wonderful time though.

I kept refusing to look at this TR because I looked at the title and was afraid I was going to see a shirtless Cedric the Entertainer in a hot tub! ;)

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

^There's no Pooh like Crappy Pooh! An e-stop would actually be an improvement, as you've shown here, Erik.

I actually rode this thing "sad-and-pathetic" style all on my lonesome last summer. I never thought I'd ever pine for the return of the Country Bears, but . . .

I am looking forward to checking out the Tokyo version, though.

Ok, Its Vegas time.

Vegas: Part 1
200703080001.jpg
We stayed at Buffalo Bill's in Primm Nevada.
200703080002.jpg
Yeah, they have a Buffalo shaped pool.
200703080004.jpg
As well as a roller coaster.
200703080005.jpg
Yeah, its costs $7 to ride.
200703080007.jpg
This is what the coaster train looks like.
200703090100.jpg
After leaving the hotel it goes up 200 feet.
200703090101.jpg
I can't remember if this part had bashing or airtime.
200703090102.jpg
One of the smoother sections of the coaster.
200703080013.jpg
The coaster track goes all over the hotel's property.
200703080017.jpg
They do have a monorail that takes you to the other area hotels.
200703080020.jpg
Yeah, its really in the middle of no-where.
200703080023.jpg
Almost there.
200703080026.jpg
For you Prince fans.
200703080027.jpg
Yeah, we stopped by the Adventuredome first.
200703080029.jpg
It is free to park at the hotels.
200703080030.jpg
Its costs $7 to ride Canyon Blaster.
200703080040.jpg
This actually was a pretty smooth Arrow coaster.
200703080038.jpg
It pretty much goes all over the Adventuredome.
200703080035.jpg
All about Canyon Blaster.
200703080036.jpg
The Canyon Blaster train.
200703080032.jpg
They do have a 2nd credit.
200703080031.jpg
We decided to pass though.
200703080041.jpg
Yep, all of this is found here.
200703080044.jpg
They no longer have a credit, so we skipped this one.
200703080045.jpg
But that is ok, I am sure this one is a much better coaster.
200703080046.jpg
How can you be that bored in Vegas?
200703080047.jpg
Lots of Nascar fans in town due to the race.
200703080049.jpg
This one costs $10.
200703080051.jpg
Best coaster in Vegas.
200703080052.jpg
It was quite fun, the 2nd launched section was unexpected.
200703080053.jpg
Our first launched-looping-Premiere coaster.
200703080056.jpg
Onward to NY NY Hotel and Casino.
200703080058.jpg
Oh dear.
200703080059.jpg
#12.50 to ride a Togo coaster? Yes please!!
200703080060.jpg
I doubt that the new trains made much of a difference.

I've been enjoying this photo TRI was in Vegas last week, and skipped all those coasters. One ride on ME many years ago was enough! I don't remember CB being too bad, and rode Desperado many, many years ago when it was still OK. I'm thinking that there will probably never be another coaster built in town, as the casinos seemed to have shifted away from any sort of "family" focus and are moving back to the old standards, gambling and booze.

^^ Yeah I totally noticed that the area was not very family friendly. We did not care much for Desperado. The first drop was pretty good, but the rest wasn't. It is still better than Manhattan Express though.
