Las Vegas Monorail Slated to Welcome 80 Millionth Visitor Wednesday Morning May 16
On Wednesday, May 16, the Las Vegas Monorail is scheduled to welcome its 80 MILLIONTH RIDER since opening in the summer of 2004. On that date, it will have carried as many passengers as the entire populations of Shanghai, Beijing, Delhi and Lagos—the four largest cities on the planet—combined! 

To celebrate the occasion and to show its gratitude to its customers, the Monorail plans to surprise the lucky, unsuspecting 80 millionth passenger with fanfare befitting such a momentous milestone.

When the identified 80 millionth rider steps on the platform, he or she will be approached by “Elvis” and a showgirl bearing an oversized 80 Millionth Rider Monorail ticket. The winner will also receive a chock-full swag bag worth over $3,000 filled with everything needed for a return visit to Las Vegas:

  • Two-night stay at The LINQ Hotel & Casino
  • Two passes for Happy Half Hour, the open-bar rotation on the High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel at 550 feet.
