I honestly can’t see this succeeding. If I’m riding a train, in regards to work, I’d rather have a plug-in for my laptop and a working wifi connection.
If I was a kid it would be hell a fun! Great idea. If I was a parent? One word. Worried!! lol.
The article dosn’t state whether the party train would be smoker friendly.
This sounds like a turkey. Las Vegas is three and a half hours from Fullerton by car. Sure, gasoline is expensive, but for an average car, the round trip is far less expensive than the train ride. And the “adults only” policy will exclude families.
Las Vegas is also spread out, so if you want to go somewhere other than the somewhat seedy downtown area, where the railroad station is located, you would have to take a bus, hail a cab or rent a car.
In 1989 I had a proposal to lease a small group of 747’s that converted them into Vegas Casinos that allowed the passengers could start gambling over states that allowed waging, on the trip to Atlantic City and Vegas..
However, at that time too few states allowed it to make mid country takeoffs limited the market.. Now, several airlines in Asia are doing exactly that, one of which I was negotiating with..
I lived in Vegas from 1995 to 1998 (thanks, US Air Force).
I recall we dreaded the long weekends, because town would be packed full of “California drivers.”
This has potential.
Okay, I've got one:
If this had been built in the '80s, Sam Kinison might - MIGHT still be alive.
