Photo TR: Robb, Elissa, and Derek in Vegas!


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

So once again we are in Vegas for Thanksgiving weekend. A tradition that started last year when we realized how EMPTY Vegas was during this time of year. I guess Vegas isn't really the "family destination" for the holiday. Well that works out GREAT for us!

 

This was also Derek's first ever trip to Vegas so we had to get in all the credits, and over the next few days, show him around the place.

 

We'll have daily updates so chkeep checking back. Make sure you see ALL the updates below:

If you want to know what powers the Stratosphere elevators...that's right! It's Otis Spunkmeyer cookies!!!

vegas17.jpg.4f77cf515c16a6f48e416b00d748e43b.jpg

"Check out Derek's sweaty hands!!!"

vegas16.jpg.ad39b1071fcb5e6c699f2adb3af3d0d4.jpg

HOLY CRAP!!!!!!

vegas15.jpg.23af7d0dcaf7840384f8254cfac83cb0.jpg

Derek: "What the hell have I done?"

Robb: "Umm....I don't see anything but ants!"

vegas14.jpg.4b64e1e3aac1ee61822c5dc27f7d0185.jpg

"Hey, Insanity doesn't look THAT bad!"

vegas13.jpg.17e98f57f55d576cc3e5ae87e08dbd93.jpg

Holy crap....YES X-Scream DOES go right off the side of the tower! Change of underwear #1!

vegas12.jpg.9a46249c66455b94a73db77e30b72805.jpg

And now the start of the Elissa "there is no freaking way you are getting me on these crazy rides" part of the day.

vegas11.jpg.4cb50a01e10ae8a0ec1eb05483239971.jpg

The view from Big Shot was pretty cool, except for the smog.

vegas9.jpg.e0be43da34ae782a9452866a68bc471f.jpg

Big Shot is still the king of S&S towers. Just what you need is MASSIVE airtime on the top of a freaking tower!!!

vegas8.jpg.5db5b119dfdd0c0b2d2a3dde4776c428.jpg

This is what a coaster looks like a thousand feet off the ground!

vegas7.jpg.ddf4ce2f377bab104dd4b58528ebecb7.jpg

Here are the 'old school' Stratosphere ride. They might be older, but you still need balls of steel to ride them!

vegas6a.jpg.a9a7fd3dd82bd5ae043e44819b939ff5.jpg

This morning we got up early to head down and meet John at the Stratosphere.

vegas6.jpg.af69c6233c3a16638b1e5c2f55d46c3f.jpg

But after dinner, it's time for the micro brewery and it's beer for us all!

vegas5.jpg.194a48493bdd371b63ebb86aaec7170b.jpg

At dinner, Derek has a beer, Robb has Balsamic Vinegar!

vegas36.jpg.c55b720d5c7f2e0e3dda00188d7724c7.jpg

We finally make it to our hotel. This is an "Elissa Friendly" place with a McDonald's and a Sabarro!

vegas4.jpg.9ab6fda6c7c4e996f75200903d0e78e8.jpg

Zzyzx road. Cool, huh? =)

vegas3.jpg.61aa1d071afccd1e6224d8b9a64b16a1.jpg

Here is Lake Delores Water Park just outside of Barstow which has been closed for at least three years now. It's the middle of FREAKING NOWHERE!!! This was NOT a good place to build this. I do wonder why none of the slides have been moved to another pa

vegas2.jpg.64ae4ef88e382b50a0fcd04d08670dc1.jpg

The Scandia in Victorville now has what appears to be a Kantanga! I wonder if this is the REAL Katanga from Florida. According to the sign they also have a credit, which turned out is a LIE!!!!

vegas1.jpg.f8ab15b2da8e0588866c238e13dd6f2b.jpg

Our drive out to Vegas wasn't too bad. But here you can see that not many people are going to Los Angeles! Smart people! =)

vegas29.jpg.d786c764bdfa348d45f4327e081d7ba9.jpg

Um...here is a roller coaster. We rode this. We didn't die, throw up, get hit by a bird, mauled by a bear, or have toothpaste spread on our butt cheecks.

vegas27.jpg.913b12725d5848d05930f99d819eac12.jpg

"Speed or the Buffet?"

"The buffet is probably cheaper."

Nice job! Way to go Robb on the jackpot! My hands started sweating when I saw X-Scream and Insanity. I haven't ridden Insanity, but X-Scream freaked me out pretty good the last time we were there.

 

Enjoy the rest of your time out there. Looking forward to more pics!

X-Scream and Insanity are two rides I would probably NEVER ride. That's just a bit too much for me. :shock: :shock:

 

You couldn't get me up that f'in tower there, even if it meant a bonus 100 creds!!!

 

Elissa is a smart woman. Remember that, Robb. She knows what is right and what is c-c-c-c-crazy for her/you/you both. And probably Derek, too.

 

Derek looked pretty kool there on Insanity, even tho, the palms can give you away, lolol.

 

Good TR start, guys.

Awesome pics! Makes me really excited about going in March. I remember thinking how stupid it was to install X-Scream. I didn't really see the point. Was I ever wrong. Too bad my trip is going to be a little shy of my 21st. Oh well, I'll return someday.

My part two take -

 

What is Elissa doing with that string there at the sluts, er, slots machine, Derek in back? OMG did she rig that game??? Somehow??????

 

:shock:

 

And those kid coasters, Derek? Well, I think throwing your hands up in the air was a nice touch. Showing the ability of succeeding over .... um .... height restrictions?

 

 

Nice.

Hey Robb have you guys checked out the Lake of Dreams at Wynn before?

 

I mean you guys are in town there certainly a lot more often that I am so I imagine you would have but then again it's kind of a little hidden secret so maybe not...

 

If you haven't be sure to go see it, amazing stuff.

Looks like you peoples are having a lot of fun. You gotta get some video of Derek's reaction on Manhattan Express . Can you get a POV of High Roller? Or some more pics? I've never understood, if it launches or there's a chain, if it goes around once, etc. Keep up the TR, it's alot of fun to read

Enjoying the report so far. I can't wait to see more pictures. Vegas is one of my favorite places. I will be in Vegas next year and my fiance wants to ride X-Scream and Insanity. I honestly don't think I could ride them even though he will probably manage to talk me into it.

 

Have a great time

 

-Kristen
