rollercoster rides

Hi every one

Going to LV on 27th Aug with hubby and 4 friends celebrating a special birthday and staying at the MGM.

Could any one tell me about the rides and the price of these, heard they were very expensive and wondering just how expensive.

Also has any one been to the pool on top of the MGM Grand, any advise would help. GETTING SO EXCITED NOW!!!!!!!!!! Thanks Sue x

we did the NYNY roller coaster about 4 years ago and I believe it was $12 or $15 pp ~ and sooooo totally not worth it IMHO. It was lame by most roller coaster standards.

We did some of the rides at the top of the stratosphere and they were much much better. Also expensive tho, and you had to pay the $$ to get to the top in addidtion to the ride fees. At least they were actually a thrill though!

I think NYNY is overpriced, Speed at the Sahara in the NASCAR Cafe is fun ($10) and the rides at the Stratosphere are cool mostly because they are 1,000 feet off the ground.

I used to love the MGM Grand Adventures Park back when Vegas was trying to be family friendly.

I think the Adventuredome (Circus Circus) is fun and a good bargin for $25 for all day.

I like all the cheesy, non-gambling attractions like the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay, Sigfried & Roy's Secret Garden and all that.

The Bellagio art doesn't interest me as much since Wynn took his impressionist collection with him when he sold the hotel.
