^ Eiffel Tower, though, screws you with Ticketmaster fees even if you buy on site. Two weeks ago we tried for the locals 2-for-1 admission with daytime pricing. They told me it'd be $17.95. The extra $7 gets tacked on and isn't advertised at all. I laughed, said no thank you, and walked out.

Stratosphere and Adventuredome, thankfully, don't go through Ticketmaster. I really appreciate that!

^I'm not sure that was actually ticketmaster and not Paris charging that fee. Secret Garden and Shark Reef are both on ticketmaster and I've never once been charge a TM fee for entering those. Sounds like Paris is trying to pass off the amount they get charged by TM for their service to the customers. I'm sure MGM does the same but their prices includes that cost where Paris probably lists it without it to make it look cheaper before they slap you with the fee.

^ I've never been to Shark Reef or Secret Garden, so I have no clue about Ticketmaster for them, but I do know that the shows I've bought on MGM properties, to the best of my memory, have been through their own ticketing system. Go figure, haha.

Not really posting this as a major update but they did make more progress overnight. One more track section and the truss for the second block brake are now in place.

All MGM box offices run on Ticketmaster. Adventuredome is the only attraction at an MGM resort that does't use TM.

I stand corrected. At least they advertise ticket prices correctly so you don't get surprised when purchasing.

Yeah, those prices aren't bad at all. I can't believe how fast it went up. Of course, being in a covered park sure helps. ;)
