MGM Grand Tips (8)

The MGM Lions

Favorite thing The lions are on desplay in the MGM Grand until late at night. Sometimes the trainers go into the glass enclosure and play games with them. This day they had cubs who came to visit for a couple hours. The lion in the picture was lying just above the people who
could stand and watch them from underneath. Kids and adults seem to stay for hours and just watch them.

Big honkin' hallways

Favorite thing The MGM is big ... no, make that *Grand*. Heeh.

With a hotel that big you're going to do a lot of walking to get to your room. I couldn't resist taking a picture of the loooooooooong hallway.

Fondest memory While walking down the loooooooooong hallway to get to our room, we encountered half-naked drunk college guys. It was very bizarre.

See the world's largest hotel,...

Favorite thing See the world's largest hotel, the MGM Grand! This hotel opened in 1993 at a cost of $1 billion. This hotel has 5,005 rooms and a casino so big that it's divided into four sections. To stock the slot machines for the opening required $3.25 miilion worth of quarters. There is also a 15,000 seat arena where big-name boxing matches take place.
The entrance used to be through the huge gaping mouth of a lion, but it has been replaced by a more natural looking 70 foot tall bronze lion towering over the intersection of Tropicana and the Strip.
A theme park was built out back but it hasn't been very successful. They do have one noteworthy ride though called the Sky Screamer which is a cross between a bungee jump and a giant swing. You take the plunge from the twin 250-foot towers at a cost of $22.50 for the first ride.

Baby Sitting & Child Care

Favorite thing Why should Mum and Dad be penalised for wanting to enjoy Vegas with the kids? Ok I agee kids shouldnt be allowed into the casinos, but there are so many other attractions for children in Vegas that it seems only fair to take them with you....BUT what happens when you really want a night to yourselves. Nice dinner, take in a show, just some "away from the kids" time. Well there are many Child Care agencies in Vegas, legally checked, fully licensed and insured, just make sure you see all the paperwork before booking them. Several of the large hotels have a baby sitting service so Ive listed a few should you feel the need.......

The famous Hollywood icon

Favorite thing A huge statue, approrpaitely in gold, of the golden lion perches outside the MGM Grand Hotel. The grandiose size of such figures and displays which mark the entrances to the enormous Strip hotels convey a larger than life feeling, that over the topness that is characteristically Vegas.

The best shoeshine in Vegas

Favorite thing If you go into the MGM Grand you can't pass on the chance to get those shoes shined. If you start from the hotel lobby, you want to walk into the casino and follow the wall on your left. The first men's room that you come is the place. There is a short Chinese man named Chin that shines shoes in there and he is the best. He mixes his own dyes and keeps them in a MGM water bottle. He tells everyone that his secret is the MGM water. He is always good for a story and more than happy to give gambling tips if you want them. I always visit Chin before I set foot into any other place in Vegas. It's like the old song goes..."when there's a shine on your shoes...there's a melody in your heart..."

Golden lions

Favorite thing The lion is the trademark symbol of MGM Grand. In addition to the huge statue which guards the entrance into the hotel, several lions are on exhibit in an area within the hotel. You can walk through and see them in their manufactured hotel habitat.

At certain times during the day, trainers come in to feed the lions and enjoy a bit of recreation with them.This picture did not come out so well through the glass, but this big guy jumped on the glass panes over the walkway and put on a bit of an impromptu show.

There is no charge to enter the lion habitat and its interesting to walk through and see what the lions are up to.
