THE BIG MIKE ROAD SHOW - 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY PICS ON PG 769


Recommended Posts

Man...the last time I was in Vegas was when I was like 8 lol! I was too ignorant to know about all that goes on in the city of sin that never sleeps! I remembered watching the old version of the pirate show and the volcano show at the Mirage. I remembered getting so freaked out at the firey parts and wanting to run away thinking that I would get burnt by the "lava"!

 

As for the attempt at the "really cool car" picture, forget the car! The truck that got in the way is even cooler I'd say!

 

Nice pictures Big Mike! Brings back me old memories...

Wow, we may have our first double winner!

 

I was talking to our lawyers here at Big Mike Productions and they recommend opening a 2nd Theme Park Review account, one for each of The Bebes, and using the 2nd Mikestery Card there, thus having two chances at the Grand Prize!

 

Thats up to you though.

 

I am very glad that it was still there after all this time, can't imagine how many tourists passed it during this span!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Big Mike...Funny report (as always).

 

I couldn't decide that you keeping the free porn cards advertising "Ladies of the Night" creepy or funny.

 

On a side note, I was on a quest to meet someone who actually called one of those cards, he told me that what you get are nowhere near what is advertised (in a very bad way).

No worries. Glad to see you had a great time in Sin City. Gotta love the stripper poles in the middle of the casinos. We'll have to catch up later.

 

Good luck and happy travels,

 

Mr. Robinson

Hello Fantastic Friends!!!

 

It is now time to kick off Las Vegasathon week at The Big Mike Road Show 2009!!!

 

Our first stop is a little place called the Las Vegas Mini Gran Prix!

 

Your GPS information is 1401 North Rainbow Boulevard in Las Vegas Nevada 89108!

 

The telephone number is 888-259-RACE

 

The website is http://www.lvmgp.com

 

They have 1 coaster and adults are allowed to ride and take pictures on it!

 

 

In attendance today is my good friend Shawn (packfanlv) who guided me all around town and even had coupons in hand!

 

Shawn also contributed a few pictures for this report so that the Valuable Big Mike Readers could have even better pictures of good ole Big Mike to look at!

 

Thanks good buddy!

 

 

Hope you enjoy!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

What Shawn did not know is that Big Mike is the absolute master of go carts.

 

Big Mike is seen here with an insurmountable lead.

 

Big Mike then let Shawn pass him and the race was on again!

 

Big Mike won again :)

Shawn was very polite and let Big Mike take the pole position.

 

Here is how the conversation went lol

 

Shawn - You can have the lead car Big Mike.

 

Big Mike - That is a BIG mistake.

We had to wait until they finished vacuuming. They wanted it to look just right for The Big Mike Road Show trip report.

The Prices. $6.50 seems high, but they have a weird ticket system.

I wish that I could say Big Mike was exaggerating with the go kart story, but he really kicked my ass! (Don't ever underestimate him. It wasn't even close!)

 

Thanks for a great day! I can't wait to see the rest of the Las Vegasthon.
