i just posted a trip report ( http://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/index.php?threads/rio-suites-trip-report-may-10-15-for-animal-care-expo.131959/#post-1323384 ) about my recent trip to Vegas. Hope you enjoy. I have to say I found The Rio in a sad state. The stuff that made it so fun Over the last 20 years all seems gone. Masquerade Village is forgotten and abandoned. Are there rumblings about plans Caesars has for thiss property? It sure feels forgotten and in flux.
