New York New York Resort looks so cool from the street! You see the Statue of Liberty stretching up to the sky, and the New York city skyline. You will recognize the Chrysler Building and other buildings. Of course, they aren't as big as the real ones, but they look quite similar! Along the sidewalk that fronts the hotel, you cross the Brooklyn Bridge (which is really nothing like the real one- but, oh well), and you walk amongst cute buildings that resemble the historic buildings found in New York. At night, the Statue of Liberty is lit up.
Inside, there is an arcade area upstairs (which kids enjoy) and the casino, shops, and restaurants downstairs. There are some eateries that resemble those found in Greenwich Village, and the buildings are so cute! It is very dark in there as if you are walking around at night. And there is a canal with water, and plenty of fake trees.
There is a rollercoaster that goes around the city skyline- it lifts you up 203 feet, drops you down 144 feet, and rides at 67 mph. It has twists, barrel rolls, and lets you hang in the air. Oh yeah!
Cross the pedestrian bridge to MGM Grand Resort, and check out something you'll never forget: the Lion Habitat! Here, right inside the casino, you can see lions so close up you won't believe it! It's a wonderful feeling to see such a majestic animal literally a foot away! Also, check out the trendy interior of the casino.
Or, cross over to the south and check out the three hotels that are connected by a monorail: the medieval-themed Excalibur Resort; the pyramid, sphinx, and King Tut's tomb at The Luxor; and the tropical paradise of the Mandalay Bay Resort, with its gold towers that shimmer in the sun, and its world-class aquarium called Shark Reef.
