Just going to re-post what I wrote last April about this project...

I think the key word in all of that, is "eventually" to be re-located. Seriously, plans in Las Vegas change faster than any other resort destination in the world. I wouldn't put much weight in the ride re-opening until you actually see it going up. And even then, how many times have we seen something be constructed in Las Vegas only to never open? Hi, Harmon Tower, how's it going?
Speed was a good coaster and had it ever been converted to lap bars only it would have been a GREAT coaster. But now living in this town and working on the strip, I see zero chance of this thing finding new life in Vegas. Hell, I was surprised to find out how many people considered it up and down the strip and even drew up plans, but all of them ultimately passed for other options when they weighed the pros and cons.

To be fair, Harmon Tower didn't open due to not even coming CLOSE to passing inspection. The foundation rebar is all screwed up and it would have needed to be rebuilt, basically, if it ever was going to pass an inspection.
Speaking of Harmon Tower, though, just today a judge gave the OK to dismantle it. I wonder how long MGM is planning on keeping it as a giant billboard.
