Ok, so here are our photos from today (so far!)
For the ACEr in all of us, the day started out at.....THE BUFFET!!!!
At the breakfast buffet, Elissa decided to "try a new food" and this time around it's scrambled eggs. Let's see how she does....
"Hmm....they kind of smell like liquid chicken."
"Let's give this scrambled chicken sex a try!"
UGGGHHHH!!!! Eggs are NOT "Elissa Friendly Food!"
Derek SUCKS DOWN that banana with some ice cream topping! Yum!
It's like Willy Wonka came to life and exploded in Vegas!
"And the correct weight for Robb would be....."
"Hey, baby....wanna try out my correct weight?" *wink* *wink*
It's just like we're back in Europe!
Ahhh...isn't it purdy?
Damn, too bad the woodie isn't open today. :(
"I can decide which Las Vegas trashy chick I want...the blonde or the brunette?"
"Hey, baby, how much?"
We went to go check out the old "World of Coke" to see what is left. Here is the entrance to the old museum....blocked by a GIANT coke bottle!
Gone are the "cokes of the world" tasting stations, but there is a counter where you can buy coke products.
For $7.50 you can get a "Taster" of a bunch of different Coke products from around the world.
And YES!!! Berverly IS included! So technically, you CAN still get Beverly in Vegas, but you now have to pay $7.50 for it!

And a few more photos. We're heading out for our nice Thanksgiving dinner at Lupo's in Madalay Bay in a little while, so we'll have another update later tonight!
Reason #1 why Elissa likes staying at Monte Carlo.
Reason #2 why Elissa likes staying at Monte Carlo.
And this is why Robb likes staying at Monte Carlo!! :D
Ahh, the time has come for THE credit of the trip! Manhattan Express!
I don't care what anyone else says, this REALLY IS one of the roughest coasters in the world!
It just looks so pretty, so innocent....
But this is what your typical rider looks like after it's all done!

And just in case you missed it in the other thread. Here is the video of how *cough* smooth *cough* the ride is! :D

Let's give this scrambled chicken sex a try!

That is one of the strangest quotes I think I have ever seen here :lol:
I don't post here enough to warrant a signature.

Derek: "Yay, vertical loop...oh God!"

Whole train: "Weeee...AOWW!"

NOTHING is better than that. Submit that to the Oscars now.

I know more about donkeys than women!

Wow, I actually just got back from Vegas, I was there with family from Sunday to Wednesday. I got to ride the Manhattan Express, hella rough and the mid course slowed us almost to a stop. On Monday I got to hit the Stratosphere, I took the Deuce (the bus system) from our hotel the Aladdin. And Tuesday I spent the day at the adventure dome with my cousins. Not bad, we used coupons that got us unlimited rides for 18 dollars. Slingshot was not to bad, my first chance slingshot. It was just a short program, up then down. Canyon Blaster seemed a lot more intense and was smother in the very back then in the front. Hope you guys are having a good time out there, I know I did.
