I have stayed at the Luxor several times over the last two years for work on the High Roller Farris Wheel and the Slotzilla Zip Line on Freemont St. Luxor is nice, customer service is better than average.
The worlds largest Ferris Wheel (High Roller) behind Ceasars is a unquie ride, I worked on the safety systems. A couple has already been arrested for having sex on it, so you can skip that. The Slotzilla zip line is OK.
I don't much gamble, so I can't help you much there.
If you want a nice ride take a trip out to Mount Charleston (Charleston Peak)and drive to the top. On the way up you will see various different ecosystems as the elevation changes. There is a nice resort on the Mountain if you would like to stay there a couple nights.
Richard Petty driving experience at LV Motor Speedway... That was awesome..
