No coasters here. This is the new $300 million expansion at Tropicana in Atlantic City. I had the pleasure of being there on 12/7, their opening.
About 20-25 new shops, eateries, and niteclubs, all themed to a Cuban flair. This place was magnificent, and comparable to the Forum Shops or the Desert Passage in Vegas, with the sky cloud ceilings, and 30 foot indoor palm trees.
For the park enthusiasts, there is a state of the art IMAX on site, now featuring Polar Express and NASCAR. I myself dined at PF Changs, and it was incredible. This area is 3 levels of 'enchantment'. Stop in if you make it to the area.

Yeah, but I still can't find my wallet. Perhaps one of the gypsies took it. I thought they were part of the theme! Aight!

Of the various national chains that are starting to sprout up, I find PF Changs to be one of the least offensive. Good teas, and they even have an actual separate printed gluten-free menu. Wish more eateries would follow THAT trend...

I spent some loot at PF Changs, but my entree, honey golden fried chicken was a measly $10. What a bargain.

There's a PF Changs in Charlotte where I live as well, I recommend (sp?) it to anyone who has the opportunity to visit one. The prices are great, and the food is amazing.
My uncle is actually in charge of franchising for the company that handles PF Changs (Compass Foods), and they are currently placing smaller versions of the restauraunt under a different name in airports and shopping centers and marketing them as fast-food. You can get almost anything from PF Changs at one of the smaller ones within 5 minutes, and the quality is just as high (Similar to Wolfgang Puck Express). I always forget the name as it is quite odd (It's something like Payway), but maybe one of you will know what I'm talking about.
EDIT: I found the name, its Pei Wei. They serve very similar food much faster, at reasonable prices. Now... back to theme parks :)
