Vegas Casinos Luxor and Excalibur Connected by Zipline? It’s Happening!

vegas casino ziplineMGM Resorts International is planning to string up zip lines between the Luxor and Excalibur.

There’s no tentative timeline for the new attraction, which will involve three lines including one connected to the apex of the Luxor’s pyramid. MGM representatives say it could be a unique alternative to simply walking between the casinos, and serve as a tamer thrill ride than bungee jumping.

The idea follows the successful installation of a zip line attraction at The Fremont Street Experience on the north end of the strip, and more news will be posted here as it becomes available. Thanks to for the information.

Carmen Electra and The Situation Vegas Labor Day at Nikki Beach and LAX

Tropicana Vegas Carmen Electra

It was a Labor Day weekend party for the ages in Las Vegas, with celebs and stars left and right. Both Carmen Electra and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino from MTV’s The Jersey Shore were in attendance, and we’ve got the news from their adventures.

It was a Situation in Vegas, with the MTV star hosting at LAX, one of Vegas’ hottest clubs. Sorrentino arrived in a limo with his brothers, then went VIP and drank and danced the night away. Also in Vegas were fellow cast members Snooki and DJ Pauly D at The Palms.

Carmen Electra turned heads and popped bottles (literally) at The Tropicana’s Club Nikki over the weekend as well. After donning a pair of Nikki Beach sunglasses for the occasion and waiting to welcome the crowd, the champagne corks popped and the crowd was sprayed with a great amount of bubbly.

If you want a glimpse of Vegas celebs, be sure you get into the Luxor for LAX. Many celebrities hit this spot, and Club Nikki is coming along nicely also.

Luxor Bombers Sentenced to Life

The Two Luxor Bombers convicted in the pipe bomb slaying of a man outside a Las Vegas Strip resort have been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The jury found Omar Rueda-Denvers and Porfirio Duarte-Herrera guilty of first-degree murder on Friday.

Back in May of 2007 a jealouse old boyfriend exploded a pipe bomb outside the Luxor and killed 24yr old Willebaldo Dorantes Antonio. His Girlfriend Caren Chali was not injured.

Luxor Starts Construction to lose Egyptian Theme

The Luxor is tired and now is getting a $300 Million face lift, body lift, tummy tuck etc… The Luxor may be changing its name to “The Pyramid”, which I do not like, but who am I?

The RA Nightclub is now called LAX and will be run by PURE Management.

Two more Clubs will open this fall called Flight and Cathouse

Along with all of that an Ultrabar called Liquidity which will contain three sperate lounges will also open.

A new Bar Called Aurora will be in the lobby across from the front desk (seems this is a new theme)

The spa will be called Nurture and the pool will be renamed “Restore”.

Well what we need is another Cirque du Soleil and we have got it, in the form of Criss Angel starting in 2008. Also, Criss has been filming his show at the Luxor for the past year.

So Vegas is ever changing its face again, but to keep up it was a good move on MGM’s part to keep current. I have always enjoyed the Luxor’s architecture and its them, but to draw the crowds it was time for a change. I am excited to see what they come up with but sad to see the theme go.
