    As so many changes are made to hotels, there are times I think something should have gone somewhere else.

    I wish Cabo Wabo would have been the restaurant to replace the tiger cage at the Mirage. It would have been an energetic, tropical welcome into the casino.

    It's too bad the MB/Luxor/Excal monorail wouldn't have fit in the backyard. It hurts the visual aesthetic of the hotels.

    Some things are in the perfect spot, some not.

    I'd move the Imperial Palace/Quad/Linq dump at least 650 miles South.

    I'll see that and raise you Circus Circus.

    Nope. I like what's there and like the way things are trending.

    Let's do a triple play and toss in the Riviera!

    Rather than send them 650 Miles South, let's find some remote, uninhabited Pacific Atoll. Isn't about time we began above ground nuclear testing again? Just sayin...

    Hmm, I would move Mandalay Bay right next to Planet Hollywood. Because it's my favorite, but I hate that it's so inconvenient sometimes.

    I would move LINQ more front and center (no idea how or where), it's such a cool place, but it's kind of buried down an ally between the two dumpiest hotels on the strip.

    A lot of the CET dining and shopping to Mlife properties. Because I don't like Caesars properties that much.. but I have to go to them because they have certain amenities I love. (like if I could take all the amenities of PH at put them in like MGM Grand or Mirage I would be happy ahha).

    I would move the monorail on the other side. I should go from Mandalay bay to TI. I feel like I would get much more use out of it on that side for some reason.

    I think I would be happy just to swap Mandalay Bay and Excalibur.

    I'll go along with some of the responses already and drop Mandalay Bay in that dead area between PH and MGM. I'd also put the Hard Rock where Monte Carlo is, and then slide Monte Carlo where Excalibur is.

    What about getting rid of City Center as you could easily fit a numerous other casinos there.

    Move Caesars closer to the road.

    I agree... a strip location would help out the Hard Rock a WHOLE lot!

    When I first saw this thread, I thought, We need Sim City Vegas, and a place where we can upload our versions of the Strip and compare notes on each others' designs.

    I would put the Pinball Hall of Fame in City Center and have it "balance out" the perceived "aloofness" of the place. Imagine bottle service while playing the steel ball into a replay target. You could experience what the other 1/2 does on a weekly basis. A quarter at a time.

    Once you get by the inevitable bouncer you would be in heaven until dawn finds you carrying your shoes down the strip.....huh?

    Agree. I would move City Center to some place in the vicinity of the Solomon Islands and replace it with a few more midscale casino-hotels.

    Don't forget to throw Polo Towers in there too.

    I would leave city center but I would not move but bull doze everything from MGM up to the new Walgreens next to PH. That is where I would put another Hotel/Casino.

    I would move MB north of MGM. I would also move Rio to the strip. It would be great in the New Frontier pit.
