Our last day in Las Vegas was a bit of a rush to see the things which we hadn't managed to on the first day. We started off by getting the bus to the other end of the strip to walk all the way past things we'd only seem on the bus or in the dark. Then we went into the MGM Grand casino where they had a lion habitat (apparantly descendants of the original MGM lion). There are over 30 lions on a ranch north of Las Vegas and every 4 hours they rotate the lions that are on show.
As we walked into the casino we were handed a ticket by CBS the television production company who wanted audience feedback for their shows. We signed up and after a short wait were excorted into a room with some other people where we sat at our own computer in front of a large TV. A woman came in and told us we were going to watch a programme and then answer a questionaire, during the programme we had a dial in front of us that was connected to the computer and we had to turn it according to our enjoyment of the programme! When it started it was CSI New York which was great because we watch it all the time at home! It was an odd thing to do but fun, and they gave us discount vouchers as we left!
We decided on the way past to see if they had any good deals at the half price ticket counter as we wanted to see a show but they were really pricey (some over $100!).
By joining the club at that casino too (Hooters, snigger), we were able to see the following show for free, a comedian called Bobby Slayton. He was very funny, quite scary as he picked on the audience a lot, and exceedingly politically incorrect! After an exhausting day we crawled into bed knowing that we had to be up early again for the airport shuttle to pick us up and take us on the next leg of our journey!
