Experience in Luxor, Las Vegas

I never forgot this experience I had in Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. When you see the second image below, you will have an idea about it. I just want to descent to the 1000 foot, level 10 in Luxor. It seems that you are inside an elevator and it bring you down. While descending, the machine keeps on sharing. Ther were only three of me. As we where already down under, it was so dark…somebody announce to the speaker that if someone cannot bear it, just raise you hand. It seems that there was earthquake that time with different lights flashings and I can’t really handle it. I feel so dizzy and feel like throwing..I immediately raised my hands, signaling to stop it. I ran immediately to the cr and after that, you know what i mean…i felt better….I will never do that again. It was quite adventurous and exciting but I can’t handle it.

Designed by hotel architect Veldon Simpson and interior designer Charles Silverman, the Luxor has received recognition as being among the most recognizable hotels on the strip because of its unique design. The main portion of the hotel is a 365-foot (111 m)-high, 30-story pyramid encased in 11 acres of dark bronze glass. The guest rooms are situated on the outer walls of the pyramid and are reached by riding in “inclinators” that travel along the inner surface of the pyramid at a 39-degree angle. The hotel also features a 29 million cubic feet (820,000 m³) atrium, which was the largest open atrium in the world when it was built in 1993. The hotel is marked by a 140-foot (43 m)-high obelisk and a 110-foot (34 m)-tall re-creation of the Great Sphinx of Giza. wikipedia.
