Slingshot bumped from Vegas strip

Posted Friday, June 8, 2001 4:48 AM | Contributed by Jeff

In a weird change of opinion, Clark County (Las Vegas)denied an operating permit for a Slingshot ride on the famous strip. The owner says it's about the political influence of MGM-Grand.

Read about it on the Las Vegas Review Journal.

Would not want something "ugly" on the famous strip, "tacky" and "gaudy" are alright though. I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder though.

I guess it just doesn't fit in with all the beautiful prostitutes and bums.

Umm, J1, did you misunderstand? They aren't going to build it now. The permits were denied, which means that they aren't allowed to build it.

I've seen as much as I've wanted to of Lost Wages on the plane ride at night to Hawaii.

Bumped means they "aren't" building it J1.

I'd like to see a nice, 4 or 5 hundred foot skycoaster somewhere over there. that might scare me, really bad, though.
i think i'd have to relieve myself in my pants.

How about sticking a skycoaster over the strip itself. Thought not.
