Sure, there are far taller buildings in Vegas, but those aren't within 1/4 mile of a primary takeoff/approach vector for McCarren. Building this coaster would be akin to moving the Chrysler Building to Flushing Meadows and proximal to one of LaGuardia's vectors. If they wanted to build this a little further up the strip (perhaps closer to The Venetian/Belagio/Ceasar's) it might be OK, but the Tropicana is way too close to the airport to allow for such a massive structure.

Published: June 21, 2013 at 5:04 AMI thought the Frozen teaser was a hoot (that means very funny to anyone under 50), the Lego movie looked mildly amusing to the point that my 14 year old son might enjoy it if it got him out of mowing the lawn, and the Monsters University Homecoming? I could not force myself to watch the entire thing. OMG, how far as Disney fallen?!

LOL! We have a meeting of the minds, Jeff. Are all of us from Denver drunks? Well, with all the microbreweries, maybe - and happily - so. On my next trip to WDW, I intend to sample many new adult beverage offerings. I have not been in over 10 years, so there are MANY new concoctions - particularly frozen - to try. The CoLava at AK sounds extra tasty.
