Return to Vegas: The Experience - Day 8 - Last Day panic sightseeing & food overload

Wednesday19th April

Todays Objectives:

1. Luxor
2. King Tuts Tomb
3. New York New York

Outcomes:

1. Achieved at rocket pace
2. Didnt do when we saw it cost $9.99 each!
3. Achieved with Roller Coaster
4. Visit to Stratosphere
5. Visit to largest souvenir shop
6. Pool Time
7. Buffet at Harrahs

A lazy start meant that we didnt hit Java Coast patio until after 9 when the line was pretty horrendous but we did manage to get a table outside.

Decided to use our last Monorail ticket on a trip to Sahara where we could cross over the road and visit the largest souvenir shop, as well as me going up the Stratosphere tower. Shopping done, under the strictest gaze of some fiercesome security guards, we headed in the Stratosphere. The security check line for the tower ressembled Splash Mountain in August, so I gave it a miss!

From here we bought a two-ticket ride and rode the Monorail from Sahara right down to MGM, forgetting to time it in our excitement! Across the walkway to New York New York we stopped for a coffee before heading up to the roller coaster - $12.50 per head (50c for the locker) and I forgot I had a BOGOF coupon! No lines here we were straight on and off nothing like Krakken really but quite a bumpy ride TC was NOT a happy bunny but I kept my eyes open all the way round! TC was too wobbly when it finished to even think about shopping in the Exit shop!

Walked across to Excalibur and caught the tram to Mandalay Bay. If you want to go to Luxor you have to go to Mandalay Bay and get the slow tram back to Luxor. We had studied Luxor earlier on Friday so had another taz around before finding the tomb realising that we would have to pay, we didnt bother. Left TC playing in the casino, whilst I went back for a final swim water being still bracing despite the fact that it was really hot now. The wind was still pesky so no chance of an Eiffel Tower trip!

On the way back up to the room, I stopped at one of the PC terminal dotted around the foyer to check in online Virgin site wouldnt let me do it, so I tried on a PC in the UPS shop with no joy either.

Showered and went down the strip to Harrahs as TC fancied a buffet before going home. There was already a line here despite it only being 6.15 pm! Eventually we were seated (having used a coupon that we had been given on check in). What an array of food! How I didnt go pop, I dont know.

From here we had to walk around for about an hour just to feel comfortable and ended up watching two fountain shows the second featured Elvis Viva Las Vegas and as we felt this couldnt be topped, ambled into Ballys for a Penny slot or two. On the was back through the Flamingo, we tried online checkin again and were successful (at the desk the next day someone was complaining and was told that the system had problems at the moment), so went off for another play with accompanying drink. Taking a final bottle upstairs, we headed up to pack mainly unsuccessfully as I was too busy staring out of the window!
