MGM Grand, Las Vegas
sort of bungee jumping, giant slingshot contraption that pulls you 200 ft into the air. You pull cord and just drop. Fantastic! This is pretty inexpensive and worth buying the video. You can hear me curse the entire way up and down.
This is a place you need a map to navigate! I am dead serious about that. The place is huge!!! If you can find it, don't miss the lion exhibit. There are a ton of restaurants. There used to be a theme park but I believe it's closed now. Just be warned, if you go in, you might never find your way back out!
An incredible topless review at the MGM Grand. Originally from Paris, La Femme has found it's way to Las Vegas. Shows are Wednesday through Monday nights at 8:30 and 10:30. (dark on Tuesdays) Must be 21 or older to attend.
What to do with small children in Las Vegas? The best hotel for the family is the MGM GRAND. They have a Theme Park, an Arcade, a Youth Activity Center, a Lion Habitat and a Pool. With their pizza, hot dog, McDonalds and ice cream joint, it makes caring for a small child a breeze. Here's their website: www.mgmgrand.com
The MGM will keep them happy, but here's a few more things on the Strip: M&M World (next to the MGM Grand); Bellagio Water Fountain Show; Mirage Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat; Mirage Volcano Eruption (after dark); Mirage Tiger Habitat; Treasure Island Pirate Show (might be too scary); Gameworks Arcade (Not another arcade! This one is next to the MGM Grand). Best Shopping: Caesar's Forum Shops, they have a Disney Store and a FAO Swartz.
MGM Grand Hotel & Casino
Sprawling casino for the stroller set.
The MGM Grand is the casino that brought on the storm of media-chatter about the Disneyfication of Las Vegas -- the idea of marketing to dads with strollers instead of high rollers. But, hey, if it's fun, who cares if it cramps Sin City's style a bit? The MGM is a formidable playland for adults and kiddies alike. Attractions include a full-blown theme park boasting the infamous SkyScreamer (think horizontal bungee-jumping), the high-concept production show EFX, and regular big-name concerts and sports events in the Grand Garden Arena. Both fine dining and fast food are available, a lounge with a huuuuge stage, and of, course, gaming, gaming, gaming.
I have included a picture of the old entrance. This must have been one of the regognisable hotels in the world. Incredibly they have ripped it down and built a new entrance. See what you think! Inside it has a lion display and a Rainforest Cafe. It also has its own theme park. Unfortunatly both times I have visited Vegas (once in Jan once in Feb) the park has been shut, so I can't comment.
Gameworks at the MGM 'Surgerock'
This is a 75 foot rock climbing wall that I made it to the top of! I became terrified half way up (because I looked down, stupid me!) but I figured, hell, I've made it this far, might as well go to the top!
Vegas, with all its attractions, has started being very kid-friendly. There's adventuredome in Circus Circus, arcades is the NYNY hotel, a theme park in the MGM Grand and many others. A personal favourite kid-friendly place to go to is M&M's world. There's a cute 3d tour and admission is only $3!
The City of Entertainment. The MGM Grand Hotel/Casino is a $1 billion entertainment mega-resort with over 5,000 rooms and 171,500 sq. Ft. of casino space, a 16,325-seat MGM Grand Garden Arena and MGM Grand Adventures Theme Park.
Play with the MGM Lions @ MGM Grand Hotel.
Well, at least take a pic of these cute animals! Don't worry.... they won't eat you up. :-) They can't because of the glass barrier. Aha! Now you feel safe enough to take loads of pics eh??
Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!
Well, lions, at least... behind glass in the Casino lobby when I visited.
...and not a Siegfried or a Roy in sight !!!
The MGM Grand has the largest hotel in the world. I didn't have time to go inside, but could easily tell that it's huge.
It IS grand! No doubt about it. Take in a free concert while gambling, be bombarded by advertisements and love every minute of it! Plus there are lions thrown in for good measure.
Inside MGM you'll see the jungle theme. The photo shows the Rainforest Cafe down at the basement. MGM is also the place to watch premiere shows and pay-per-view boxing matches.
The MGM grand stands as the worlds biggest hotel - you have got to see it to believe it.
