    They're underneath the alcohol on the back wall. They also had a neat keychain but neither of us really use them.

    You’re welcome! I was going to ask if you got a good place to stand. Sounds like you enjoyed it as much as we did. I don’t know if I’ve seen a bad review yet...

    Yes we were the first ones in and stood just where you said. We actually were confused about your directions when we were in the waiting area. We kept trying to figure out where the towers and lucky lady sign were lol. We walked around and then ended up right next to the guide that was going to lead us over there.

    We went back to Cromwell for more drunken gambling shenanigans. Lost about $300 playing UTH and roulette. Watched a wonderful fountain show (Singing in the Rain) and are at Secret Pizza now. I guess we didn't stick to the diet thing very well haha.

    Here are some pics from Circus Circus and the fountain show.

    Ate almost a whole cheese pizza between the two of us lol. Going to take the last $300 and see what happens. We came in under budget on food and shopping so I decided to spend it gambling instead. Going home with actual gambling budget intact, I'll take it!

    Great TR so far! I'm with you on the Pizza, could eat a whole one of those, especially the white pie, but then I'd have to die.

    Good luck on the tail end.

    All done on the gambling front. Having some coffee now before we start packing and head to the airport. Our flight is scheduled to leave at 1:17 but we'll probably get there a little early so we can get some pretzel bites at Pretzelmaker. They closed the one in our mall a long time ago and it's sort of become a post Vegas tradition.

    No, not yet. I'm excited to see that one lit up too and we'll go back when it is. It has so much detail!

    We're back to reality now and severely lacking sleep. Glad that I took today off too but we still had to get up early to take the kiddo to school. Trying to plan when I'll be returning in the next few months but this time I'm taking my brother and Mrs PTD is staying home.

    Thank you everyone for the comments, tips and following along!

    Thanks Tring! One of these days I'll get on VP train. I like to really understand the games I play and there's just so many variants it's intimidating to get started. I enjoy super high variance games though so maybe I'll just focus on something like DDB ultimate X or something and go from there.

    Yep! We actually might stay there next year. Planning on taking the kiddo to Vegas for Christmas and it's much cheaper than Red Rock on the chase ultimate rewards portal for some reason.

    Although I've brought my kids (well 8 of them including 2 of my own) I've never brought them at Christmas. I've brought them to EDC during summer. And other times during fights.

    Funny thing is we did end up going near Christmas in 2019 but didn't bring the kiddo. We had plenty of family trips but just couldn't bring ourselves to give up OUR vacation haha.
