Did you visit the top and ride the rides up there? Bold!

I'll echo Lynn, if a shot like this is not pulled off correctly, as here, it becomes a dogs breakfast.

Isn't that where they have the roller coaster? I could never go on that. Very cool B&W image of the tower. Makes me wanna go to Vegas again. :)V1

And you can bungee jump from up there I think... but I wouldn't. This is a great night shot, love the lights and PoV. You are the queen of upshots! V
