Here are the final photos from our Vegas trip. Last night we took it kind of easy, ate at the steak house in Excalibur, played a few table games (Elissa won $40 at Blackjack and Derek $170 at Roulette) and I won $90 on random nickel slots! :shock: It was a successful night! :lol:

Today we headed out to Desperado at Buffalo Bills, and it actually rode "ok". Not great, but probably about as good as it's going to get. There was some really great airtime over the couple of bunny hills and the first drop, and then the rest of it just sort of meandered around the hotel

Overall, though, I have to say we had a really good ride on it!

Then after that we drove back home, stopped for some food in Barstow, then onto SFMM.

So here are the photos!
Yay! Desperado, the last credit Derek needs of the trip!
Oddly enough, it was actually running pretty good today!
See! Those look like smiles on thier faces!
OMG! 90 MILES PER HOUR!!!! (Not!)
Desperado is the epitome of "Coaster designed by coat hanger!"
Dinner last night was kind of random. Steak House at Excalibur! They said the thing on top was "Yorkshire Pudding" - Lou, does that look right to you?
Robb had the "Soup Experience." Beef Barley for appetizer, French Onion for dinner!
Elissa wanted the brown sugar from the Banana's Foster the were making for someone who really doesn't need it! :D
At dinner, Robb apparently rode Space Mountain!!!!
Here is a scary random photo of Derek. I apologise in advance for any mental scars this photo leaves!
Our new member of the Alvey family "Leopard" enjoyed the steak house also.
It was time for dessert!
Apparently Santa was also on vacation in Vegas and here he is "Phoning it in!"
After our not-so-long drive back home, we made our way to SFMM where we found the cars attacked by mutant tumbleweeds!
"Let's go ride something that's NOT closed to due to wind!"
Elissa takes some Tatsu construction photos. (You'll see these later today!)
And they even whore themselves out to the nasty water Jet Stream to get more photos!
Yummy! Looks like a nice SFMM soup!
So overall it was a GREAT trip to Vegas.....
INSANE rides!
lots of buffets....
some Elissa Friendly Food...
...and we actually came back a little richer! Thanks for reading everyone!!!!!

Do you know where your wife is?

Nice photos, and it looks like you had a good time.

I am going to need at least 10 years of therapy to help forget that. :lol:

Desperado would've been so much better tho if they had that phoney magician chained to the tracks.

Umm, it looks KINDA like a Yorkshire pudding, albeit a slightly deformed one! I'll make you some proper ones and bring them when I come to meet you for the trip next year Robb! :lol:

You guys look like you had a great time, glad you enjoyed yourselves. Totally made me wish I went to the casino tonight!
