    Treasure Island, Las Vegas

    Hey,

    Wondering if anyone on here has any pictures of the old Treasure Island, Las Vegas casino (pre-2000's when they de-pirated it). I'm looking for the old sign on the strip, Mutiny Bay Arcade, and maybe some of the interior, if possible.

    Thanks in advance! Look forward to seeing what you can come up with!

    P.S. If anyone has a copy of the in-room casino tour hosted by Steve Wynn, please let me know...I've been searching for a decade.

    I don't have any pics from T.I. before the 2003 transformation.

    But I have found various videos on Youtube of the original Pirate Battle.

    This one is one of many.

    And for a little trivia about this Hotel:

    Steve Wynn coordinated the opening of Treasure Island with the Implosion of the Dunes Hotel.

    The Dunes is located where the Bellagio is now. The idea was that the H.M.S. Britannia was responsible for the destruction of Dunes. Very Cool.

    Today, Treasure Island is no longer owned by the MGM Mirage.

    ^ Oh no way! Very cool. Yet more reasons to miss what it used to be like.
