    Will be staying at the Linq for the first time next month.
    Let me know how it is and if the construction is a hassle.
    Good luck with your trip.

    The construction is kind of a pain going south out of the Linq. Half of the casino is shut off. They moved the bubble craps game to 3535 bar. Unless I never noticed or paid attention but Casino Royales table games aren’t 24hrs. Closed 4-11am.
     
    Thanksgiving in Vegas (beats at the in-laws)

    Half the casino closed?
    Going South is closed? How is access to the Promenade or toward Flamingo?

    I noticed last trip Casino Royale didn't open their craps game until something like 11am.

    Hope you and your family have an awesome trip together @SaltyNutSnack! As you probably know, I love doing Vegas trips with my kids. I bet your daughter will have a blast. Mine keep asking when we're going back, and they're a bit disappointed it probably won't be until next summer for our 20th anniversary. So...far...away....

    Looking forward to your updates!

    Do they still have two bubble craps machines?

    Yeah, that whole "top" part of the casino is walled off. The area where TAG, the TR Desk, and the upper slot banks were is all walled off. The big entrance/exit to the promenade is closed, but there's still a pathway around construction walls to the exit closest to the strip and some limited slots up there. It's still easy enough to get south via the promenade, you either go out that exit closest to LVB or through O'Sheas, Off the Strip, Chayo, etc... the cashier's cage down by the elevators and HHAGG is now also the TR desk.... the guy who helped me print a voucher said that's gonna be a permanent change, and I believe him based on permanent looking new TR signage at the cage. The Diamond registration lounge is also gone, replaced by a new slot area.

    Damn. Hope it's done by Labor Day. Not sure I'm going yet, but soon after Labor Day would likely be the next opportunity.

    I feel ya! I really have no idea what exactly the Kind Heaven footprint is gonna be, but I've seen nothing but mid-late 2019 dates for that... FlyLINQ is supposedly gonna be done this year (and you can see significant vertical progress on that sucker), but I feel like that project is mostly contained to that promenade area closest to LVB between Flamingo and Linq (which is completely covered right now, btw)..... I feel afraid that the LINQ is gonna be LINQ Junior while we wait on our holographic fighting monkeys.

    Thanks for the report!! Was staying in Flamingo 2 weeks ago and went through Chayo to get inside the Linq from the Promenade. Pretty simple!!
