    Saw a Vegas show with an air ship (blimp) ride available.
    Sure the show had a 2012 but you can tell it was an older show simply recreated with a newer date.
    Searched but couldn't find this.
    Does it still exist?
    If so, do you have a URL?

    Sure that wasn't the "MyVegas" game on Facebook? They always have blimps flying over The Strip in that :) :) :)


    Can't think of any actual blimps in Vegas, but there was that Cloud 9 Experience that was a hot air baloon ride across the street from Mandalay Bay. That closed a few years ago (weather damaged the balloon and they just never came back)

    Years and years ago wasn't there a vegas.com blimp thing that gave rides? I I think I remember it but it is long gone.

    Well, that isn't entirely true. They did get a new balloon and reopened many months later, but with a dramatically scaled-down staff, crew and advertising. After that, it faded quickly.
