Where I stayed
It took us about 30 minutes just to get to the pool.
Talking of the pool – one of the seven pools was a wave pool. A large wave came every 2 minutes and you could surf it into the shore. There was a beach right next to this pool – despite the fact we were 100's of miles from the sea!
There was also a lazy river that had a current that pulled you along, and there were 2 waterfalls that you went through and got very very wet. We bought a huge rubber ring, which was blue and we named it Jupiter, to sit in to go round this. We spent most of the day in this.
We did not even get to the other 5 pools!
We explored Las Vegas in the evening when it was slightly cooler – there was the Pyramid hotel next door with lots of video arcades in it. The next night we watched a volcano show and water show, they were both FANTASTIC!!!
(Note from N & D- LV is rather strange, packed with people only here to gamble – which you can do 24 hours a day even by the pools in your swim suits! Never seen so many casinos ever. Dan tried to win big to pay for trip but……)
[If you ever wondered where one hit wonders or past it bands go to grass, it seems Las Vegas is the place - Weird Al Yankovic, Kenny Loggins (Footloose?), Matt Goss of Bros (he must be at least 19 by now ) and Blondie to mention a few. Failed to win enough to take a helicopter for the rest of the trip, so back to the RV, but at least didnt lose so much that I had to sell Nikki for a couple of camels. Also had to stop her going to the Thunder from Down Under show, which Oliver asked "Mummy why do all those men have their shirts off" - D]
