A good place for information. Certainly more detailed and updated more frequently than the official site.

I think that this is going to end up half finished like the Foutainbleau. I think CET is going to be in bankruptcy sooner rather than later. I stayed at Bally's in August and their people mover was still broken after months. If you cant't afford to maintain current properties why are they building giant Ferris Wheels? Sounds like poor MGMT.

The Bally's moving sidewalk has rarely been working for years now. I think they simply concluded long ago that it wasn't worth the energy expended to keep it running from a business standpoint. Even if CET goes into bankruptcy the business enterprises will continue operating and at this point the Linq wheel is close enough to completion that it would certainly make business sense to get it operating and producing revenue. No question that it will at least bring in enough revenue to cover the operating costs. Same is true with the rest of the Linq project which appears to be fully leased, or close to that anyway.

The Linq shopping area looks like it is on track for opening late in the year. I was there two weeks ago and there was plenty of work going on and it looked like the finishing stages.

The High Roller ferris wheel was a hive of activity as well and the Quad casino was looking very nice.

It all appears on track to be completed as scheduled.

They aren't bothering with the people movers because they're one of the next things to be demolished. The area is going to be replaced with a bunch of little shops.

HuskerBB: "The Bally's moving sidewalk has rarely been working for years now. I think they simply concluded long ago that it wasn't worth the energy expended to keep it running from a business standpoint. "

I'm gues the maintenance on the Giant Ferris Wheel is going to be a lot better than on Bally's moving sidewalk. I'm sure that the Giant Ferris Wheel will solve all CET problems just like the Stratosphere Tower solved all of Bob Stupak's problems.

I really don't think it should be that complicated to keep a moving sidewalk operational (this is not exactly no technology). Plus it is one of the first things that people see when they are coming into the property. If I were running CET, the person in charge of Bally's would be fired for not being resourceful enough to fix it or at least keep it clean (it felt like I was walking on a carpet of old cigarette butts when I was walking on it. Maintain your current properties before you go deeper into debt and build new.

mildcigar I agree completely about the Bally's employee. My husband and I are CET players and NEVER go into Bally's for this reason. Out of principle I can't do it! LOL I think the whole entrance of Bally's should just be rethought anyway.
