Royal Flushers Daily Vegas Pic - Oct 15, 2017 - Boardwalk Casino





Boardwalk Holiday Inn Casino Las Vegas

The good ole Boardwalk Casino, which was somehow connected to a Holiday Inn, had the distinction of having the most unsafe roller coaster west of the Mississippi.

Back in the 1990s, Vegas was still known as a bargain destination. You could stay on the strip, and eat cheaper than you could almost anywhere else. Graveyard specials were everywhere.

And, this little gem of a shithole, which sat on where City Center is now, north of Tropicana and Las Vegas Blvd., featured a super cheap buffet.

And the neophyte Flusher, who wanted to experience cheap things just for the experience of being able to experience cheap things, ate a meal at the 24 hour Surf Buffet for about $2.99 and subsequently had food poisoning for the next two days.

Mrs. Flusher was smarter - she gambled while I doomed myself ate.

The Boardwalk Casino was demolished in 2006.

Just down the street is a casino that features a real roller coaster - New York New York.
