And not in a good, "I can't believe I'm up this much, what are they pumping into the air in this casino, and wow, I wish I made as much cash as that chick's plastic surgeon must be raking in" way.
Consider Arthur Levine's lastest over at About.com: Dry Fun on Tap for Las Vegas Wet Mega-Resort
The details previously announced for the Las Vegas Wet resort under development in the glitz capital of the world were already mind boggling: a 350,000-square-foot indoor water park (which will make it the largest in North America and the second largest in the world), a 23-acre outdoor water park, 1400 themed hotel rooms, two entertainment/restaurant/nightclub areas, a sports and entertainment arena, a casino, the world's largest parking structure and, improbably, an indoor snow dome... with year-round Alpine skiing and snowboarding. The developers aren't finished yet, however. ...But the huge news, according to Las Vegas Wet CEO, Steven Dooner, is that the property will also feature a 65-acre "internationally branded" theme park.
Wow, I need an aspirin after reading those plans. How about you?
Granted, the Vegas residential real estate market is crashing, and with credit drying up around the world faster than my skin in the Las Vegas heat, count me as skeptical that this project will come off as hyped. (The indoor water park, however, ought to be a slam dunk.)
