MGM Grand


The MGM Grand opened in December 1993 with 5,005 rooms, making it the largest hotel in the world. The former Tropicana Golf Course was transformed into an outdoor seasonal amusement park with a number of theaters and rides, including the free-fall Skyscreamer and a roller coaster. The MGM complex now includes a 380,000 square foot conference center. In 1999, the former Leo Lion entrance-building at the Strip and Tropicana was replaced with the present gold statue of Leo. A pedestrian overpass system at the busy Strip/Tropicana Avenue intersection now links the Tropicana, MGM Grand, New York New York and Excalibur Hotel & Casinos.
