Simona’s Las Vegas Hide-and-Tweet

As Simona prepares for the IZOD IndyCar season finale race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, she decided to check out the area and get familiar with the attractions. She has four pairs of race tickets/paddock passes to give away to the people with the highest number of correct guesses as to which attractions she’s visiting.

You can either tweet your answers to @HVMracing or enter your guesses below as a comment. Entries will be accepted until 12 a.m. ET. and winners will be announced via twitter tomorrow (Wednesday, October 5). Good luck! Here are Simona’s clues:

  1. “I’m about to enter the famous Las Vegas strip. This attraction was created in 1959 and cost only $4,000 to build and install.”
  2. “I’m watching more than a thousand spigots of water dance to music ranging from Pavarotti to Sinatra.”
  3. “I’m attending a show that features an international cast of acrobats, swimmers, divers & characters performing in, on and above water.”
  4. “I’m in downtown Vegas, checking out a free nightly show of more than 12.5 million lights and 550,000 watts of sound.”
  5. “I’m listening to an eclectic mix of live music at this legendary location that features a capacity of approximately 1,800 people.”
  6. “I’m enjoying a South Beach ambiance! This location that offers 2 saltwater pools, 8 individual pools, cabanas & VIP bungalows.”
  7. “Let the good times roll! I’m riding the attraction that lifts you 203 feet and drops you 144 feet.”
  8. “I’m excited to do some laps here with Pork Chop and the other drivers of the IZOD IndyCar Series on Thursday, October 13.”
  9. “I’m attending this critically-acclaimed show, known to put the entire audience in a state of ‘bluephoria.'”
  10. “I’m staring up at one of the Vegas attractions. At 1,149 feet, it stands twice the height of any other building in the city.”
