Today was another early start. We were being picked up from the Luxor Hotel to visit a nearby timeshare property, in return for some heavily discounted tickets and free gambling credit. All we had to do was sit through a sales pitch and in return we would receive our gifts. Sounds easy right?
Hah not quite so straight forward! The promise maximum 2hr time including being given some breakfast and the tour actually took 4hrs. Oh and we faced 3 different people trying to twist our arms in to purchasing a timeshare.
Fortunately for us we used the ‘we can’t afford it’ line. We could say it with a straight face aswell as it’s true. There is not a lot someone can say to that really other than, keep lowering the price.
So if you are interested just say NOOO! You will get a better deal.
True to their word though we received our tickets to visit the ‘Titanic’ and the ‘Bodies’ Expeditions at the Luxor.
Thanks to My Vegas we had a 2 for 1 coupon to use at the Luxor Buffet. I can’t say that the meal was amazing, more of an adequate school dinner. The Buffets are a cheap way to eat in vegas though.
After some lunch from the Buffet we traded in our free gambling voucher for chips. These have no cash value, so you have to gamble them untill they are gone. We did manage to win back our chips as real money though, all whilst sipping on free cocktails. So another little win for us. Yay!
The ‘Titanic’ exhibit was something I was really excited about seeing. I have always been fascinated by the tale of the sheer opulence of the ship and it’s tragic sinking.
The exhibit didn’t disappoint. The artefacts recovered from the wreckage are so well preserved and displayed beautifully. Unfortunately we were unable to take any photos as you are not allowed. We did have our picture taken on a replica 1st class stair case though and have that to look back on.
Rather than heading back to the hotel and risk falling asleep again we headed out, or rather stayed out for the evening.
First up we headed to Coyote Ugly Bar for Happy hour at the New-york New-york Hotel.
Just like in the film the all female bar tenders dance on the bar and sing along to the jukebox. So expect a few merry groups of young males. They do actually make more of an effort with the female customers though, so don’t let this put you off.
Happy hour over it was time to head to The Excalibor Hotel for Dinner at Dicks Last Resort with the Bride and Groom (the whole reason we went to vegas) and a bunch of their friends. This was a very funny evening, we had a great meal whilst basically being abused by the waiting staffs banter.
So that’s just about wraps up day 3 in vegas, it was a bit of a busy one. We may have had a cheeky last minute gamble at our hotel, memory can’t confirm that though….
