Bye Bye Egypt!

We knew that the BODIES and Titanic exhibits at the Tropicana were moving to the Luxor, but I don't think I realized what they'd replace. Turns out, the IMAX theater there closes this Sunday and the King Tut tomb and museum goes away on June 22. The new attractions open this fall.

This begs a question. The idea behind moving away from the Egypt stuff was that they wanted to make the place hipper, right? The Cathouse, Company, LAX, etc., are all intended to show this Luxor isn't for the kiddies anymore.

So they replace two major kid attractions with...two other kid-friendly attractions? Huh?

Meanwhile, if you care, I did a piece for USAT a while back on a BODIES-like show in Chicago known as Body Worlds. It's controversial. Read that here. Personally, I think it's cool.

There is a good article in the July issue of Strip Las Vegas magazine as well.
I am looking forward to seeing Bodies at Luxor.
