This seems like the appropriate place for this...

So I finally rode the Slotzilla Upper Zoomline tonight thanks to their half price anniversary deal. Fun ride. Worth it at $20. Not sure it's worth the regular $40. The hour-long wait to actually fly is kind of ridiculous. My check-in time was 9:40pm and I finally zoomed at 10:50pm.

Anyway, worth doing once. (I also rode the original zip line when it was just a temporary structure).

I'll have to keep this in mind when I'm there next month staying at the Golden Nugget

Hopefully it's not a busy weekend when you stay there. I didn't get to park at the hotel (valet or regular) despite the fact I was staying there for EDC weekend because they were at capacity the whole time...

So what's everyone's thoughts on MGM announcing that they will begin charging for parking?

I actually switched my allegiance from MGM properties to Total Rewards because the principle of further gouging the guests (resort fees are already bogus) to try and make up revenue lost from poor management just irks me...

we fly in and don't ever rent a car. . so have never actually made use of any Vegas casino property lots. .

but i think it's a terrible idea -- just based on what my friends who live locally are saying. They are going to refuse to visit any casino that charges, and it's going to cost the casinos some business.

Now.. to be fair. . . most locals don't seem to GO that often to strip, or Freemont casinos anyways (which is why the Strip casinos offer deep discounted show tix/food options for locals) . . .instead preferring to go to off strip places, typically with a ton of free open lots surrounding them anyways.

but I do think it's gonna cost them SOME business.

my 2cents

I think if your staying at an MGM property you will just suck it up. But if you are off the strip you will find free parking and go there costing them some business. I think the valet parking downtown was free. Of coarse you should tip them.

Yeah, MGM plans to charge for valet too. So they'll be costing their valet guys tips. It makes sense on nights there are events at the arena, but it's probably bad for them in the long run.

^That's too bad. I just hope other properties don't follow suit.
