With just hours to go before the official grand opening of a $1 million-plus scale model of the famed Las Vegas Strip, builders spent Wednesday snapping and glue-gunning the final few thousand bricks into place on replicas of 10 casinos – from the smooth black Luxor pyramid to the towering 20-foot Stratosphere, complete with a tiny working roller coaster shuttling green-faced passengers up and down the central spire.

Do they have little Lego people handing little Lego stripper bubblegum cards?

I wonder what coaster they have running on the "central spire" of the Stratosphere. I would think it's High Roller, but with them saying up and down, I though it may be the scrapped Arrow project, but I doubt they'd delve that far into history :-(

I was there on Friday. The coaster doesn't "run" but the Big Shot runs when you push the button. The exhibit is really cool because of all the interactive elements. My son tried to hop the fence to get a little more up close and personal with the models which were fantastic by the way.
I only wish they had found room to add it without removing most or New England. I really loved the trains.
Great place if you haven't been there.
