I think this opens today or tomorrow. It will be easier than the previous method. We have not seen it because of the reservation that was needed before.

Link here.

There are probably more things online about it, but this is the first one I found.

We went over there on Tuesday evening and took some pictures at the new park.
I'll post one or two in my TR

It's there, you can drive right into their parking lot and enter the park grounds; however, their official grand opening is this weekend (today?)
There's really not much to the place... I was a bit underwhelmed

It looks like they jumped the gun a bit with the grand opening. This article says completion in about a year from now.

Hmm... after reading that article, maybe we weren't supposed to be in there :shifty:
There's a wrought-iron fence around the park with an open entry gate near the LVB sidewalk. There were no "keep out" signs and no employees were around.... oh well!

Underwhelmed, eh Mychal? Guess we'll give it a miss.

Maybe next time.

A gallery of downtown’s historical Neon Museum Boneyard Park (Alora will love the main picture at this link, and photo 13 at the link below)

Or, straight to slideshow.

Holy Cow, what a nightmare of a pic! Did they go out of their WAY to do that?!

Great pictures, though, overall. I like the old Barbary Coast sign the best.

Pop quiz: How well do you know the classic neon signs of Vegas?

I missed one of them, but probably wouldn't have if I had read the clue...

I think it will be cool to visit at night. We actually enjoyed the tour last year after thinking it might be a waste of time.

An ingenious solution to avoid the cost of total refurbishing and wiring.

I got a little sad there. I remember when Vegas was a gamblers town.
