Donna asks…

What are some fun things to do while visiting Las Vegas, Nevada?

I will be visiting Las Vegas in the future for a 3 day stay and am interested in some activities to do while I was there. I am not much on spending hours in front of a slot machine just wasting money.

Administrator answers:

** ATTRACTIONS. The casino that predated the ill-conceived rush to theme-park motifs was Circus Circus, with its pink big top and circus performances. It still has an amusement park, a five-acre indoor layout called Adventuredome. Rides range from the gentle Frog Hopper to bigger-kid stuff, such as Canyon Blaster with double corkscrews and the like.

As much for adults as children is the Star Trek Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton. This elaborate homage to the TV- and big-screen sagas of the Starship Enterprise should appeal to anyone with an appetite for science fiction. The main draws are two motion rides, the Klingon Encounter and the Borg Invasion. Kids have to be 42 inches tall. There’s a museum of Star Trek props and a restaurant called Quark’s. Tickets that include both rides are sold online for $36.99, $31.99 (Nevada residents) and $33.99 (seniors and kids under 12).

At the Luxor, there’s an IMAX theater and three film rides, including one that takes you through a video-game world, another on an adventure archaeological dig, a third through a haunted castle. There are also three IMAX movies, including a Tom Hanks-produced moon walk. Tickets for each are $11.99.

At the Venetian, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum presents replicas of the famous. While little ones might be bored, older children may get a kick out of posing for pictures with Hollywood stars and historical figures.

** ANIMALS. Most children probably will enjoy several animal attractions along the Strip. Some are free. The MGM Grand has a free lion habitat where adult lions and cubs often loll around and play. The Mirage has a free white tiger habitat, a vestige of the Siegfried and Roy magic-animal act that ended when Roy Horn was injured by one of the cats. Toward the back of the resort are a dolphin habitat and the Siegfried and Roy Secret Garden. Combined admissions are $15 for adults, $10 for children 4 to 12, and free for children under 3 with an adult.

** SPLASHING. If you’re in town in swimming weather, May through mid-October, the hotel pool will be a favorite spot for young ones. The most expansive is at Mandalay Bay, with a wave pool, beach, and lazy river ride. However, Mandalay Bay is one of the pricier hotels. Families on a more modest budget should consider the Monte Carlo, which also has a wave pool and river ride; the Flamingo; and the Tropicana.

** DINING. Buffets are a mixed bag for children. The upside is that kids get to pick what they want and there’s often a price break. The downside is that they have to get the food from the buffet back to the table. A rare dinner-show geared to children is the Tournament of Kings at Excalibur. The food is a capon dinner you eat with your fingers. The entertainment is a medieval adventure with jousting, swordplay and acrobats. There are two shows a night, except for Tuesdays.

** ARCADES. These are dotted all over town. The Excalibur has a game arcade called Fantasy Fair Midway, and Circus Circus has its own midway that is close to the casino, some might feel too close. On the south end of the Strip is a noncasino-attached arcade, Gameworks, with all the latest video whiz-bangs, including shoot-’em-ups and sports games. The Sahara has a tie-in to NASCAR with a ride simulation arcade called Cyber Speedway, a restaurant, and a thrill ride. The simulation rides have a 48-inch height requirement.

** RETAIL. With the opening of upscale malls, shopping has become a major part of the Vegas experience. While kids probably won’t be impressed with Gucci and Fendi, they’ll probably enjoy the FAO Schwarz toy store at the Forum Shops and M&M World on the south end of the Strip near Gameworks.

** THRILL RIDES Several screamers along the Strip might be for the young-at-heart but not the faint-of-heart. New York New York has its Manhattan Express roller coaster with a “heartline” twist-and-dive maneuver. The Sahara has Speed, the Ride, which accelerates from 35 to 70 mph in two seconds. And the Stratosphere Tower has three rides atop what, at 1,149 feet, is the tallest building west of the Mississippi. The most recent addition is Insanity — the ads say riders experience “the thrill of being flung over the edge of the Tower and literally facing downward at the city of Las Vegas below.”

Robert asks…

Do you really get paid to be an audience member during the recording of a show?

I live in Los Angeles and a lot of shows are recorded here. But I was wondering if you get paid to be the audience member of most of those shows. I know some of them give out prizes, but by paid I mean as in a check. Like would I get paid to be an audience member of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Judge Judy, Wheel of Fortune, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and things of that nature. Thanks

Administrator answers:

You do not get paid to be in the audience, and you also do not have to pay to be in the audience. Live Studio Audience’s are always free. My brother & his wife attended a live taping of Wheel of Fortune when it traveled to Las Vegas. The episode aired as the premiere this season. They had to send in a ticket request form, and they received their tickets free in the mail.

In LA, for example, you can write or call the following to receive tickets to Wheel of Fortune:

Write to:
Wheel of Fortune
P.O. Box 3763
Hollywood, CA 90028

Or call:
(800) 482-9840
10:00AM to 4:00PM
(Pacific Standard Time)

If you go to the station website of the show you’re looking for, whether it’s cbs/nbc/fox or other, you can find ticket information. For example, for all NBC Shows, including Jimmy Kimmel, ticket information is here: http://abc.go.com/site/tv-ticket-request

Susan asks…

Can you measure intelligence on CAT scan results?

A few years ago, when I was vacationing with my family in Las Vegas, I became very dehydrated, fainted, and hit my head on a TV set. Because of the risk of concussion, I had to take a CAT scan. I never got to see my results, though I didn’t have a concussion. My mom told me afterward, because she had seen the test in progress, that they saw some great shots of my brain and the doctor said I was very smart. Is it even possible to measure intelligence this way?

Administrator answers:

My educated guess is it can show capacity for intelligence but does not measure it . The development of areas of the brain are necessary for certain functions but if not used are like an empty vessel
