Same here.

When I woke up this morning and turned on the news, my heart dropped. Like, how many more innocent people have to lose their lives before something is done to stop all these mass shootings?? :cry:

It has definitely been a hard couple days here. The strip has had an eerie quietness about it, but it has been very comforting to see the city come together around this and also to receive the support from so many outside of the city.

It was a weird feeling driving into work the next morning and seeing the two windows smashed on Mandalay Bay and knowing what had happened only 12 hours earlier. The whole thing has been hard on everyone in town. We are a city of 2 million but it still feels very small, everyone is taking it pretty hard. But we still show up to work, put a smile on our faces, and help our guests. Luckily I haven't run into any assholes that want to make light of it, but apparently there are quite a few.

So horrible in every way imaginable.

Vegas was a 2nd home to me growing up. I remember camping at the old Hacienda campground where Mandalay Bay is now and despite the fact that I feel that it has lost its charm from when it was much smaller, my heart still loves Vegas and all of its people.

Thoughts and hugs to all of you in the Vegas area!

I say to registered gun owners, and those who own guns ... to give up their "right to bare arms",
and give up their guns, for the entire safety of their entire country! Please!

I know, I know this will never, ever happen, in (pick a Big number) years.

But still. It's a plea for sanity. And mutual accountability for the sake of your country.

Without trying to derail this topic... Even without guns, those who want to harm others will always find a way. :(

New Attraction for Las Vegas! I know, I know, Another Zipline? But this one is at least in an easily accessed location for tourists and at a fun location with a lot of other options including other attractions. I'm a little biased on this one since it's where I work.

PR Newswire

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Caesars Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ: CZR), owner of The LINQ Promenade, announced the intended addition of Fly LINQ, expected to be the first and only zipline on the Las Vegas Strip. Developed by the team behind the High Roller, the world's tallest observation wheel, the approximately $20 million Fly LINQ features 10 side-by-side zip lines, capable of simultaneously launching all riders. The experience will be constructed on The LINQ Promenade, the open-air shopping, dining and entertainment district situated at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Construction is expected to begin in the spring of next year.

Fly LINQ Launch
"Fly LINQ will further establish The LINQ Promenade as a must-visit destination, particularly for distinctive Las Vegas entertainment experiences," said Bob Morse, President of Hospitality, Caesars Entertainment Corporation. "This new experience will join The LINQ Promenade's growing number of thrilling and memorable entertainment, dining and retail options."

Guests are expected to begin their ride experience by taking an elevator designed to provide open strip views from the Vortex at The LINQ Hotel & Casino to the top of the 122-foot-tall launch tower. After enjoying spectacular views of the Strip during the ascent, it is planned that guests will arrive on the launch deck, where queuing and gear-fitting will take place. Riders can choose to ride in either a "superman" or seated position.

From the launch tower, the ride continues eastward, traveling 1,080 feet above The LINQ Promenade. Riders disembark near the base of the High Roller. To remember their exhilarating experience, guests will be able to opt to purchase professional photos—either individually or as a group—dressed in full flight gear and in mid-air.

Fly LINQ is expected to feature two automated gear retrieval lines that will keep queues moving quickly by swiftly returning gear back to the launch tower. In addition, it is planned to feature an innovative, custom-built automated ride system as well as best-in-class technology developed by global leaders in zipline construction.

Fly LINQ is being developed in conjunction with Xventure LV, LLC, a company built by hospitality and attractions industry veterans, delivering the most advanced thrill rides in the most exciting locations imaginable. Xventure specializes in high-capacity adventure rides situated in prime urban locations and Fly LINQ will be its most ambitious project to date. Xventure will lead the development and operations of Fly LINQ.

"Xventure is thrilled to work with Caesars Entertainment to give thrill seekers an adrenaline-packed experience in the center of the Las Vegas Strip," says Joey Paulos, principal and managing member of Xventure.

Fly LINQ will reunite many of the team members behind the development of the High Roller observation wheel, including Themed Development Management (TDM) as project manager. In addition to the High Roller, TDM's principals and executives have extensive experience in creating major theme parks and attractions.
