I'm going to Vegas fairly soon and have some pretty cheap friends.  They really only want to ride one thrill ride when we are in town, due to the costs.  If you could recommend one ride in Vegas, what would it be?

IMHO, Big Shot by far! Actually the best ride is Skyscreamer, but I don't think you have the thousands of dollars it takes to rent out The Park.

Desperado or Big Shot would be my two picks, but since you can only go on one I'd say Desperado. It's a fun ride and they have a S&S freefall ride too.

S:TR or Big Shot.  Don't waste your money on Desperado or ME.  Big Shot is really fun but you have to pay to go up the tower yet the view more than makes up for the 7 dollar elevator ticket.

Back to the pics, they are great, love em'.  Would have liked to see some High Roller pics though.

What's wrong with you people, geez Manhatten Express is insane.  I know it's 10 dollars a ride but it proves singally that Togo does not suck!  The ride is phenomonal!  Take a ride, it's first class!

As much as I like ME, if you are only going to do one thrill ride, I'd definitely do Big Shot. My husband and I go to Vegas regularly with another couple who will NOT spend money for thrill rides. We leave them in the casino and hit the rides ourselves (actually, I INSIST my husband leave them so *I* can ride). Desperado requires driving outside of Vegas. Many people who fly in don't want to spend the money for a taxi or shuttle to get there (which is why I have yet to ride Desperado).
I'd rather die living than live like I'm dea
