Me & 8 other geordies flew out to Vegas on wednesday 28/8/13 from newcastle for a stag doo, after an 11 hour flight we landed in Vegas around lunchtime & headed straight to the Luxor. We spent the afternoon walking around the strip & visiting a few bars, a waitress in Twin Peaks told us about a night time pool party at the Mandalay & we halfheartedly said we'd give it a go. Later on that night a few friends were in my room & we decided to actually go...only 6 of us braved it!!! although i couldnt be bothered. we threw on some swim shorts, tshirt etc (not knowing what to expect & headed over to the Mandalay)
We waited outside for it opening at 10pm, people started rocking up all dressed & we felt VERY under dressed although we did start to see a few more daytime costumes as the que got bigger.
We paid i think $20-30 to get in but once in we soon realized that this was gonna be one hell of a party. We spent most of the night in the pool (after 3/4 hours can get pretty cold, especially when drinking). The place was packed & the DJ/music was incredible. I think i spent an hour or so just sitting with my feet in the pool looking over at the Mandaly lit up in the pitch black night sky thinking 'this is the greatest party ive ever been to', a very surreal experience!!
Drinks were expensive, approx $10 for a little stubby can of corona, but dont let that spoil the experience, just savour the atmosphere & the surroundings & you'll have a blast.
& that was just our first night of seven! wow!
If you intend on going though heres a few must do's
1. going in swimwear is fine but you might feel a little underdressed so maybe go smarter but with smiwear on too if youre going in the pool
2. take a few quid!!!
3. Take a towel!!!!!!!!! (unlike myself)
