We hit the LINQ today around lunchtime. The Higroller was up and running, but no passengers yet. The entrance to the Highroller where the tickets will be sold is open and staffed. There was a worker there answering questions and promoting the opening. He told us they considered the LINQ officially opened this past Friday at 3pm. The HIghroller will not be lit up nightly and doing "light shows". I snapped some pics. There was a moderate crowd. LINQ has their own uniformed security team and they are everywhere. There were no homeless or street performers to be seen. All of the stores were open and staffed with friendly workers. We really liked the vibe. Cant wait for June when we are staying at the Flamingo. I will post some pics when I get back home.
