I went to vegas for my third time just a week ago and had a blast. Right away, me and a friend took a taxi to the Sahara to ride Speed. It was cool, but i don't think it lived up to the hype. After we went the first time, we realized that they had an all day speed pass. One ride is $6 and the all day pass is $9. For a 30 second ride with no line, take the pass. Later i walked the strip on my own and decided to ride manhatten express for my third time. I remember being let down the first two times, but for some reason I really enjoyed it this time. I don't know if it had more air or what, or maybe because it was $10 I wanted to make it a good experiance so I felt like it was money well spent. I went to Circus Circus with my family one night to eat at the steakhouse there, but I decided to bypass Canyon Blaster because no one else wanted to go on it. On the last day, though, me and my dad went on the Big Shot and I must say that it was awesome. I sorely regret not taking advantage of the reride for $3. Overall good trip, but I would much rather go to a amusement park, even a small one, than just go around riding these coasters. I guess that there too far apart.
