    Luxor's only good purpose is to serve as a walkway leaving Mandalay Bay and staying out of the 100-plus heat...

    Excalibur also..

    Scott Roeben "Vital Vegas" is not local Vegas news He's also said that the Rio was supposed to be demolished for an MLB stadium, among several other things he's been completely wrong about.

    Will be kind of weird not seeing that big black pyramid dump driving into Vegas if and when it gets demolished.. Kinda iconic.

    Those three hotels are basically worthless. MGM has always had a habit of screwing things up in Vegas and this is no exception.

    Place is a dump but iconic part of the Strip and had some good times there. Sad to hear.

    I can't see this happening

    The casino's have no revenue and no cash reserves

    You gonna blow it up...ok, are you going to build something or sell the spot?

    No serious casino operator is selling that location, so back to question- what are you going to build new and how are you going to finance it?

    From what I'm reading, there are structural issues with the building also that's making it attractive to tear down since it's expensive and a pain to maintain. Only problem with that is, it's gonna require a lot of cash to rebuild. Would they want to leave a vacant lot with the NFL stadium about to open?

    With the current demise of Vegas, maybe its time for the Outfit to intervene.

    It's cursed like the pyramids. There are some columns missing in the basement. Be careful if you are in the casino. If you eat a big buffet meal don't go to Luxor casino.

    Itís not even 30 years old. Didnít it open in early 90s?

    And agree with most, I donít really remember a time when this place wasnít a shithole. In the 90s when I was in college saw a cheap titty show there and we all wondered why it was such a dump.

    Luxor is the first place I ever gambled in Vegas, playing balckjack all night long, at 20 years old, using my friends ID. He was 21.

    I actually won that first trip too, I think it was around $300 playing BJ. That was a big score.
