Got up early to eplore Vegas. Today we didn’t bother to try to get the group out in one piece and it was a good thing to as Runt and Coops didn’t get out of bed until six.
Adam Sophie and I went around town and saw loads of the casinos.
Got back in early in the evening and had a few warm up drinks for New Years Eve. We did the three rides on the top of the Stratosphere. At 1,149 feet, the Stratosphere Tower is the tallest freestanding observation tower in the United States and it has three of the scariest rides I have ever done on top of it. I did them all but I don’t think I would again. The worst was the X-Scream where they dip you off the side of the tower eleven hundred feet up. I have never kacked myself so much in my entire life.
When it got closer to midnight we went down to the Strip to enjoy the second biggest New Years Eve street party in the USA. When we got to the very edge of it a Runt and Coops decided that we were close enough for some reason. I tried to debate the issue out and managed to convince them to go another fifty meters closer to the street party before toys were thrown. In short we were at one of the largest street parties in the entire world and didn’t even bother going to it. Go figure.
