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.
I believe he was remarking on the fact that even when something here is under construction it still doesn't guarantee it's going to be finished and/or opened. Nothing is for sure in this town, even when it's for sure.
I’ve spent the past couple of days in Las Vegas and had some time to kill so I thought I would go take a look at Speed: The Ride. As you can see from the photos is is stored very neatly. There seems to be no site of the trains.
I also went to the site of the new GIANT ferris wheel over at the Quad. This thing is huge, and the Quad is looking pretty damn good too.
Back in the day, it was probably the best ride in Vegas. Of course, the rides atop Stratosphere have taken over in most people's opinions... and the new rumors for Vegas (and previous ride rumors) have outclassed this launch coaster. However, it was great to eat a little food before or after this ride at the NASCAR Cafe!
