    Just as long as nobody tries to do the stunt portrayed in Highlander II on that longer stretch of track(slamming the train to unrealistic speeds), I dont think things will be much of a problem. It's a monorail, something where real lives are at stake, not some simulation on a computer screen. If you want to be a masochist about it, go ahead since there's a lot of people ready for fresh victims as referred to earlier, and it wont help your case next year when your "fun" causes trouble for the rest of us.

    That is funny, I think las vegas is going to have to employ Homer Simpson durring dc incase any bad mishaps happen with the monorail.

    It's more than possible to get the monorail to derail if you send 2 of the cars at each other at a decent rate of speed, voltage regulated by the centralized computer network(to stop said collisions, and control timing - or so I figure)....

    Some folks see Defcon as an educational and religious experience. Other see it as "Beavis and Butthead go to Las Vegas."

    crashed the A/C system? in a building loaded with computers/delicate electronics in 110+ degree heat? getting pools closed? what the hell is wrong with these people? If I see any tampering with things that will directly affect my electronics I can assure you that you'll see people tied up with the roll of spare cat5 I always carry, and I'll leave a note on them so others can kick and beat them as they go by. Defcon is an educational experience, not a reason to be a blatant ass to get attention by any means necessary.

    Or the jerkoff that put cement in the toilets.

    I think there is a small charge.. but we are still unsure about all of that.. they are going to have a big to-do about it being completed... I will have all the info then and post it here... but as of right now they are talking about a small charge for riding it

    New Monorail Open This Year

    I guess this fits here..

    The new monorail that connects all of the strip is due to open this year in May or June I think. It should be open by the time Defcon comes.

    It connects the far end of the strip Sahara, A Block North of Circus Circus, Across from Statosphere, to the South End, at MGM.

    Heres a map of the path.

    As far as I know, its the same as the other monorails have been, free to ride.
Working...
