I heard about it. I would like to see it.
I remember the old park at MGM Grand. That didn't do so well.
This doesn't sound anything like the old MGM amusement park.
Have they started on this yet...?
Google maps shows a bunch of construction across from the Wynn. I was just looking at it today.
That old MGM park was pretty fun if you were under 21. Log flume, some kind of small coaster, but my fave was the rip cord. 3-2-1 fly!
Going in a few months, may try to search it out just to see...
I’m curious, too. Hopefully you can post an update. I’ll be there at the end of September and staying at the Palazzo, so this would be close.
I was just at the Wynn a couple weeks ago; the golf course is still there (closed of course) with real demolition taking place yet.
Ahhh the good ol' days of Vegas when it was all about fun, family friendly themes. Then it turned all adult.
My parents started taking me to Vegas at age 9. They would give me $20 and set me loose at Circus Circus for the day. Back then $20 covered a bunch of carney games, lunch, and souvenirs at the shop next to Slots of Fun. No one batted an eye at a 9 year old navigating the city alone. Today, if I let my kid walk to school alone I’d get arrested. I’m so happy I got to experience old Vegas. I don’t think Vegas was totally family friendly ever. But you used to be able to drop kids off in kid friendly places. I hate new Vegas. Hate the clubs with the bottle service, hate the slots that don’t pay out, the super expensive food, the hotel rooms with all their resort fees, and the lack of comps for anyone not a high roller.
Yep. I know this is off topic, but check out Hajimete no Otsukai on youtube. It's super young kids running their first errands alone in Japan. Super fascinating; makes me wish we had a safer, more trustworthy society.
