I was considering meeting my cousin in Vegas and riding the coasters there. I rode Manhattan Express many years ago, but none of the others. It would be a 5 hour drive by myself + the cost of gas and rides. We would be including Desperado. I would drive up after work on Saturday and we would come home Sunday night. Is it worth 10 hrs + cash or should I stay home?

We can use all the economic help we can get in Vegas. Most of our tourists come in by plane and until they are satisfied with security they wont be coming. Over 10,000 jobs have been lost since the 11th. One good thing about it though is that you are bound to get discounts almost everywhere you go!

why is it not affecting Reno as much? I guess it could be because the weekend festivals in Reno are so popular. My girlfriend and I tried to go last weekend but every room was taken... The worst was when they denied me at Circus Circus because I didn't have enough VIP points for the one room available. sheesh! I knew I should have played more craps there instead of going to the better casinos...

Reno is sooo ghetto. I dont know why all my friends decided to go up there for college. There's nothing to do. Well theres nothing down here except frat parties and raves, but at least its something. Also Reno isnt really a destination resort. If you lived there, youd see its boring as hell.
