Thank you TPR! I was in Vegas this weekend for a college hoops tourney (go Aztecs!) when I saw this news. We cut our time at Circus Circus to grab a few Speed laps.
Ops are on the 15 min schedule, but at least the crew kept everyone informed and counted it down. We waited it out for 3 laps. It's running a bit rougher than our last visit in 2009. Still love the rush of that 2nd launch.
The area is already looking derelict. The entire upstairs section of the NASCAR Cafe is blocked off; most of the racing simulators are out of use. They are discounting; at 12:30 on a spring Sat an all day ride pass was $14, down from $23.
Other Vegas observations: Canyon Blaster at CC is running well. Circus Circus is a dump, but the $12 prime rib was excellent at the Garden Grill. The Stratosphere rides are a unique trip. Insanity is a must do. Desperado is getting rough as heck.

Have fun with the TOGO Death Machine. We'll be hoping you make it out alive!

^^ I rode Manhatten Express, or Roller Coaster, the first time I went to Vegas. I'm glad I rode it only because it is my only Togo credit so far. And, I knew what I was getting into. I braced myself and actually had an ok ride, not worth dishing out the cash for a re-ride though. Get the credit then head to Circus Circus and Stratosphere.

I agree! I was expecting to feel like my bones were about to break but I didn't think it really was THAT bad!
