    I see they have helicopter tours as an award now. I have always wanted to do this. May be worth a look. Only 300k in chips for a 15 minute trip. I am running out of things to use my points on so I may give it a go.

    I took a tour of the strip at night in a helicopter and loved it. Paid for it tho. I see the MyVegas rewards for 300k but I also see the one for 50k chips...whats the difference? I paid 70 dollars + a 15 dollar fuel charge for the night time strip ride with free champagne . Getting this for 50k would be a must do...so worth it. So again I have to ask. What is the difference between the 300k and 50k ride/tour?

    It appears the 50,000 coin reward still costs you $85. The 300,000 is free. I think I have seen a Groupon for the same price listed above, so I would not spend the 50,000.

    since this is new would love to hear some reviews on this reward. Was thinking about taking it while there but husband was short about 10,000 from the free one.. So decided not to do it. But next time..maybe if the reviews are good

    Anyone do this yet? Going in 3 weeks and wonder if it's worth getting since I should have enough left over LP for it.

    Is the 300,000 LP ride for only one person or can you bring another person with you?

    My wife and I did this last night, the reward is for one person. I still needed to get one more reward so we could both go, and got it yesterday morning while in town.
    I called and they set it up quickly, they will even pick you up at your hotel. We have a rental, very professionally run place. The flight headed north just east of the strip, over top of Fremont then back along the west side of the strip, in all about a fifteen minute ride. I expected more of a thrill, kinda like being the passenger with beeejay at the wheel drunk on peach ciroc. Instead it was like a weak roller coaster ride.
