FWIW.... I just returned from Vegas Weds after 5 days at Ballys. During my time there NONE of the escalators worked on any of the center strip (Ballys/Cromwell/Ceasars) corners. The exception would be on 1 occassion the up escalators on the Ceasars corner worked briefly. After a couple of days I just walked out of the side door of Ballys and walked acoross the street. Walked around Cromwell as opposed to the hike up and down the stairs on the 2 corners. No indication of any work being one to any of the escalators either.
