Where I stayed
The show was absolutely excellent! Would go again in a minute. Me and Welly had front row seats and were almost up dancing on the stage ourselves a few times it was so good. At one point the performers were bouncing around all over the place on these trampolines to a mixture of Revolution and Back in the USSR, it just looked like excellent fun. The seats have speakers build into them so you can here all the nuances of the soundtrack too. There were outtakes from studio time and snippets of other conversations too - can't recommend it highly enough.
Afterwards we walked all the way along the strip - the enormity of the casinos are a cross between vulgar and amazing
Later on we went out to the Stratosphere to go on one of the rides at the top. Went on X-Scream, it basically throws you over the side of the building 800odd feet up - excellent fun. Expensive at $30pp for 2minutes but would go on the other rides too next time.
Headed back to the hotel after that to hook up with Welly's mum Marie. Got food then crashed out.
Next day headed to Palm Springs for a week of luxury (it was fun trying to fit all the stuff, mainly firewood and cool boxes, that we'd accumulated in the time of having the car and Marie into the car).
